Sex School Hub x Tom Hemp’s: Get into your bubble
We are thrilled to announce that Tom Hemp’s is collaborating with Sex School. The purpose of Sex School is to generate an open discussion about sex and wellbeing with a panel of industry experts. Considering the events of the last two years, we feel that self-care is the best gift you can give yourself. As a result, we’ve teamed up with Sex School to bring you a special Christmas giveaway gift box.
Wellness and self-care in complex times
We all go through difficult times. It’s a natural part of the flow and ebb of life. But these past two years were filled with unforeseen events that forced us to evaluate our situation and readjust. We had to adapt our social, professional, and personal lives around the new health measures put in place by government authorities.
These upheavals have caused a lot of headaches in terms of workspace, adjusting schedules, and of course, establishing boundaries between personal and professional life. It is critical to set your limits and to recharge your batteries regularly. At work and home, taking time for oneself contributes to balance and mental health.
Work tasks and priorities are important, but not at the expense of your mental and physical health. Your well-being should always be the ultimate priority. It’s okay to ask for help and to delegate certain tasks to family or friends whenever possible. Don’t wait until you’re at your wit’s end before seeking assistance. It’s also crucial to treat yourself to a little pleasure every day. Even if you find it challenging due to a lack of time. It could be as simple as having a hot bath, masturbating, reading a book, or listening to music.
Taking care of yourself also means taking care of your body. Eat well, make time to cook, pamper yourself and listen to your needs. Often, we tend to put aside how important sexual energy is and what wonders it can do. It suppresses stress and activates hormones released by different regions of the brain to perceive pleasure: endorphins, anandamide, and serotonin. It is as beneficial as exercising, so stretch, do yoga, have sex, and masturbate to stay healthy.
Finally, set aside time each day to clear your head. By leaving room for silence, creativity can be activated, and ideas and projects can be born.
Natural and alternative beauty treatments
Berlin may be the Mecca of holistic health, with a plethora of natural and alternative treatments to choose from. The first thing you’ll need to do before switching to natural treatments is to ask yourself why.
Are you trying to eliminate any controversial ingredients? Are you more environmentally aware? Or maybe you’re looking for ingredients that are gentle on your skin, or organic products in relation to your new lifestyle? All of the above?
There are a slew of reasons why you would want to switch to more natural treatments, like for example:
- removing dangerous toxins from the environment,
- reducing your carbon footprint,
- avoiding carcinogenic ingredients on the skin
- the simple desire to benefit from the healing properties of natural essential oils
- or to support your local or national brands
When it comes to these kinds of treatments, the possibilities are endless. A wide range of traditional treatments, such as facials, are available, but with more natural products. Massage, reiki, acupuncture, hammam, and reflexology have all gained a lot of popularity in recent years and can do wonders for your health and emotional well-being.
We understand that some of these treatments might be costly, so why not make a weekly bath ritual?
Physical and psychological benefits of these treatments
Making time for yourself to enjoy any form of treatment can do wonders for your morale. It’s one of those rare moments for yourself, so take time to relax and reconnect with your body. The importance of maintaining a connection to one’s body is something we often overlook today, as we spend so much of our time in our minds, particularly with the introduction of new technologies.
So, here at Tom Hemp’s and Sex School, we’d like to encourage you to put down your phone and reconnect with yourself. We can’t emphasize enough how vital the sense of touch is and what it can accomplish.
Bath: Space for pleasure and relaxation
To enjoy a bath, make sure you’re not interrupted, turn on airplane mode on your phone, and turn your bathroom into a cozy boudoir. To unplug, use dim lighting, candles, Zen music, and, most importantly, take the time to relax and replenish your batteries. Ideally, the room temperature should be at least 23°C.
Although heat is an evident factor in muscular relaxation, avoid submerging yourself in hot water. A high body temperature has negative effects on the hormonal and circulatory systems, as well as exhausting the body, which must strive to lower its temperature.
There’s no need to break a sweat or trigger heart palpitations. Water between 27° and 37°C is perfect for positively impacting the lymphatic system while also offering a genuine sense of relaxation and without harming or drying up the skin’s hydrolipidic coating.
Why not make the most of this moment by masturbating?
Masturbation and sexual exploration alone have long been taboo. Yet, this practice that spices up your sex life and gives you pleasure also has fabulous health benefits.
The brain secretes endorphins during masturbation, which increase well-being and reduce stress and anxiety. During orgasm, these chemicals are doubled, resulting in muscular relaxation and an increased sense of relaxation. As a result, masturbation is an important ally of relaxation. Masturbation is, in fact, self-care!
Self-awareness implies solitary enjoyment. In other words, it is by experimenting with different caresses that you can discover what stimulates you sexually. If you don’t know, how can your partner know?
Finally, after stepping out of the bath, put on a bathrobe or comfortable clothing that has been gently warmed on a radiator.
This year, we’ve come up with the ideal present to complement this moment of leisure. Our special Tom Hemp’s and Sex School giveaway box includes a gift card with Sex School membership discount, stickers, self-care tips and several Tom Hemp’s products like a lubricant, a body oil, a bath bomb and 1g of CBD flowers.
What better way to begin the new year than by devoting time to yourself and learning more about desire and sexual health? Be prepared for more information about our collaboration and the giveaway on the Sex.School.hub.
