Sri Lanka is a land rich in culture and tradition. For centuries we have heard stories of the strength, grit and determination of our ancestors who lived simple lives, yet built monuments that to this day continues to baffle the world. Why then do our people struggle today to live ‘healthy” lives?
The answer is in the lifestyle changes. To keep abreast with the rat race of the modern world, we have adapted to “fast food” and even faster lives. We have forgotten how our forefathers taught us that breakfast must be eaten like a king for it is the most important meal of the day. Our children no longer play outdoors and screens take up most of their time. Tried and tested herbal remedies have been replaced by expensive medicines. Exercise is countless hours at the gym, and not simple chores at home.
Yes, the pace of life and keeping up with the world means we have less time on our hands. But, it’s good to remind ourselves that on this journey of life taking care of our bodies, souls and minds, the right way is what will see us through.
Cinnamon Grand, Cinnamon Lakeside and Cinnamon Red that consolidate Cinnamon City Hotels dedicates the month of September to reminding ourselves on just how important wellness is for well-being. “Wellness Month” at Cinnamon’s City properties will feature a plethora of events, activities, conversations and food and beverage offerings that will make staying fit and healthy both fun and easy to do.
Speaking on the initiative Kamal Munasinghe, Area Vice President of Cinnamon City Hotels said, “At Cinnamon City Hotels we strongly advocate for wellness being a lifestyle choice. Our objective is to create awareness and remind people that wellness is a choice. The activities we have planned throughout the month of September will remind our patrons that wellness is not an arduous task that requires freeing up your busy schedules or spending unnecessarily. It can be as simple as changes in a diet or a simple mindset change. We therefore invite everyone to come and experience what we have to offer and make positive changes that can have a lasting impact”.
Wellness Month kicks off with a celebration of National Nutrition Week. Cinnamon Lakeside will offer a Healthy Corner at The Dining Room from 10am to 2pm daily from the 1st to the 7th of September while the healthy corner at Cinnamon Grand will be operation throughout the month at the Coffee Stop daily from 7am to 11am.
