Embrace The Good Leaf: Wellness From Home Program Launches to Help You Self-Care

Thursday 30th April, In an ever-changing ‘new normal’, healthy habits and a regular routine can be difficult to achieve. To help support your self-care program, Comvita, Australia’s leading Olive Leaf Extract brand, is launching WFH – Wellness From Home, a collection of expert-led wellbeing sessions focused on self-care activities to help keep you feeling positive during this time and beyond. 

“Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.”

Heraclitus (circa 535-475 BCE)

Focusing on Timeless Wellness in the Modern Age, the program aims to use the ancient wisdom of Mediterranean philosophers to help support the modern health and wellbeing needs of Australians. 

Launching 30 April 2020, the Comvita program will see a host of experts look back to move forward. Rooted in the profound thinking of ancient philosophers, experts will help rediscover simple practical wisdom that’s as true today as it was thousands of years ago.

Experts such as chef and trainer Luke Hines, relationship expert Nikki Goldstein and Flow Athletic founder Kate Kendall, will engage with Australians in weekly Instagram Live Takeovers on Comvita’s page, discussing topics under three themes:

  1. The Good Body: Healthy recipes, nutrition and exercise to support healthy immunity and body.  
  2. The Good Mind: Sessions to support mental wellbeing, including stress, change management, fatigue, sleep and relationships. 
  3. The Good Leaf: Education on the traditional use, provenance and health benefits of Comvita’s Olive Leaf Extract, rich in antioxidant polyphenols and used traditionally in western herbal medicine to support the immune system.

“Looking after your physical and mental health has never been more important. To help Australians during these uneasy times we have developed the ‘Comvita WFH – Wellness From Home’ program, an easy, unpressured and enjoyable way for Australians to connect, take a moment and invest time in their wellness,” says Comvita Marketing Manager, Alicia Foster. 

“We are encouraging Australians to be curious about their wellbeing, helped along by the ancient wisdom of the Mediterranean philosophers, people whose ancient wellness traditions can help and reassure us in our modern life. We hope we can help our customers find peace, self-reflection and balance through these sessions.”

“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”

Hippocrates  (c. 460 – c. 370 BC)

Championing self-care, the Wellness From Home program is designed to help Australians to emerge from the ongoing situation more well than when it started.  Follow Comvita on Instagram (@comvita_au) for the weekly sessions and visit Comvita’s ‘WFH- Wellness From Home’ web-page for full details of the program.

About Olive Leaf Extract: Olive leaf extract (from the ancient olive tree) is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidant ingredients. The polyphenols in Olive Leaf Extract have powerful antioxidant properties to help protect against free radicals. Excess free radicals place pressure on the body, including the immune system, and antioxidants in the diet defend the body against free radical damage. Olive leaves contain the highest concentration of antioxidant polyphenols from the olive tree.

Olive Leaf Extract has traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to support the immune system, maintain general wellbeing and support cardiovascular health.

About Comvita Olive Leaf Extract Liquid is available in three flavours – Original, Mixed Berry and Peppermint, and in four pack sizes – 200mL, 500mL, 1L, and 5L (online only).
