Guardian Malaysia celebrated International Women’s Day by hosting a special 2D/1N stay for 20 women from its public campaign and a few influencers up in the highlands for some cool respite.
Guardian Malaysia Health and Beauty Own Brand Malaysia and Brunei brand manager Michelle Yeap Hoon Li said the role of women in today’s society had changed tremendously.
“The ability to multitask is essential to live up to the job description of homemakers, breadwinners, mothers, educators, and so on,” she said.
All of these, she said, contributed to constant stress for women.
“In conjunction with International Women’s Day (IWD), Guardian Malaysia challenged women to create a better world for themselves through practical steps.
“In line with that, the campaign was specially targeted to empower ladies with a means to find the ideal balance between work, leisure and relaxation,” Yeap added.
During the campaign period, Guardian’s female followers on social media were invited to comment below the IWD post and give a reason why they were keen to win the all-inclusive wellness trip.
Their answers would have to end with the hashtag #BalanceForBetter”.
The 20 winners were selected to join the Guardian Women Empowerment Programme “Balance For Better” at The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang.
The five selected influencers were Sazzy Falak, Atita Haris, Tash Yong, Jorise Lee and Elecher Lee, two YouTubers Nisha Ezzati and Aisyah Habshee.
The purpose of the retreat was to help the women achieve wellness in every aspect of their lives in combating high levels of stress to emerge healthier and more relaxed.
During the retreat, both influencers and winners underwent an inspiring journey with interesting and relaxing tips or activities to unwind and care for themselves.
Professionals provided step-by-step tutorials at different sessions to target various needs.
There were beauty consultants who helped them understand their skin through talks on skincare related topics.
On top of that, participants were taught make-up techniques and grooming styles for different occasions.
A professional speaker was also invited to share on stress management issues.
Participants also learned to prepare and assemble a well-balanced meal for clean eating.
Another highlight was the “Sound Therapy Session” where participants drifted into another world while their bodies, minds and souls were being treated by clinically proven therapeutic and healing sound therapy.
There was also a yoga session to complete the programme.
