We caught up with three wellness entrepreneurs to give us some tips on how best to slow your thoughts down and relaxxxx…


Carla Oates, Founder & CEO, The Beauty Chef


Q: What time do you stop working completely in the evenings?

Being a Creative and also a CEO of my own brand, it’s hard to put a start and finish on each day as we are a dynamic business and constantly exploring lots of opportunities to bring our new innovation, educational content and gut-focused solutions to life for our global community. I do however have a beautiful new addition in my family: my dog Wolfie. I am loving getting outdoors to take him for a walk twice daily around my beautiful environment in Bondi Beach. The sunshine, fresh air and exercise do wonders for my wellbeing. I also find cooking for my family, even after a busy day, is extremely relaxing. We are so lucky here in Australia to have a selection of high quality fresh, local ingredients, so preparing and sharing a meal together as a family is such a joy at the end of a long day.

#1 Tip That Actually Relaxes Carla’s Busy Mind: SLEEP Inner Beauty Support

It has become an integral part of my evening routine and I absolutely love enjoying a warm mug of coconut or almond milk with SLEEP before bed. This deliciously spiced blend is like my inner beauty night treatment and is packed with gut-nourishing, skin-loving ingredients like bio-fermented turmeric and papaya – to help fight inflammation and boost antioxidant activity – as well as natural sedatives, lemon balm and passionflower which are traditionally used in Western herbal medicine for sleep. The ritual of making myself a delicious, warm mug of SLEEP is certainly one of my go-to tips to relax, and also replenish, after a long day.



Avonda Urben, Founder, The Perfect V


Q: What time do you stop working completely in the evenings?

 Once kid activities start, I’m into a different mode. I think it’s actually a great thing because I can think about other people and their needs. There’s a flurry of activity getting them to ballet and ice hockey but I take about 30 minutes at the end of each day to review what was accomplished that day and make my list for important work projects due the next day.

I find that if I don’t switch off at night – it makes me anxious and less productive the next day. Besides I really enjoy the time with my kids – ballet and ice hockey are a cool distraction.

#1 Tip That Actually Relaxes Avonda’s Busy Mind: Enjoy Doing Simple Things

I do enjoy doing simple things – especially right before dusk. Something magical about that time. I still love bike riding – I got used to that while living in Denmark. We have some great trails in our neighborhood and it’s quiet and peaceful in the early evening and I try to take advantage of it by hopping on my bike for a quick bike ride. It really does relax my mind when surrounded by all the green trees and the cool sounds of nature. I feel such gratitude that we have such beautiful nature all around us.



Hilary Quartner, Co-founder & Co-CEO, Hilma


Q: What time do you stop working completely in the evenings?

Depends on the day and week! Regardless, if I need to work later I try to make sure that I take time to step away around 7pm and get some fresh air, eat dinner, and recharge before hopping back on to finish up loose ends.


#1 Tip That Actually Relaxes Hilary’s Busy Mind: Going Outside

Going outside is always important for me — I feel refreshed after a walk and fresh air. Spending time with my partner, talking on the phone with friends or family, a shower, and always reading something before falling asleep are my wind-down go-tos. Hilma Tension Relief also helps the process along.
