POWER
DOWN
SPECIAL

always find this time of year spellbinding, as nature changes her gait, the days get shorter and the nights
longer. With this shift comes the desire to power down - to nest, to optimise sleep and preserve one's
energy and immunity levels. So often we find ourselves caught in a cycle of consumerism and ambition,
toiling away daily to afford more nice things, which we don't have the time to fully enjoy.
Yet there are benefits to distancing ourselves from the distractions of our lives and relishing in simply being
idle. Cutting back on socialising and drinking this month for Stoptober will aid your quality of sleep no end
as it's a well-know fact that alcohol and a good night's rest do not mix. We're excited to team up with OYNB
(One Year No Beer), which hopes to inspire you to take a break from booze,
which may be the seismic shift your life needs.
PS. Power down with BALANCE and our 'Night-time Edit' sleep box. Purchase
at www.latestinbeauty.com/balance-box and use the code SLEEP30 for £8 off
and free p&p.
