New Zealand - the time for relaxation is now


Based in Auckland ex-pat Brit, Carol Henderson is at the helm of a new relaxation website, My Sanctuary, launched on 4th September 2019. Having embraced the importance of “me time”, her aim is to encourage others to do the same by indulging in selfcare routines to combat the effects of stress.

New Zealand is in the midst of a mental health crisis, with stress a contributing factor for many. The 2019 Wellness in the Workplace Survey* reported that stress has risen by a net 23.5% across businesses in the past 2 years.

“We New Zealanders need to relax, calm down and get more sleep to help combat the stress in our lives” says Carol. “The aim of the website is to encourage others to take a moment, however small, to be mindful of harmful stress and take genuine steps to establish our own wellbeing”. She goes on to say, “the concept behind My Sanctuary is about helping others to create their OWN mini sanctuary or retreat so that they can relax, revive and restore their mind and body”.

The new website offers selfcare products to help with sleep and relaxation including massaging tools, sleep aids and indulgent skin care and bath products.

My Sanctuary is proud to support “Made in New Zealand” boutique products and smaller brands. Many of the featured skin care ranges are vegan, ethically sourced and made right here in NZ – often in small batches. The website also features relaxing video, soothing music and informative articles that have been carefully curated, delivering a “one stop relaxation shop” and taking selfcare to the next level.

Gordon Campbell: On Compensating Afghan Civilian Casualties

Reportedly, there have been nine incidents resulting in 17 civilian deaths and injuries (seven of the dead were children) caused by ordnance left behind on what used to be the firing range of our Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) in Bamiyan province.

Given that the NZ Defence Force has needed to be hauled kicking and screaming into belatedly arranging an adequate clean-up of its old firing range… what would it take before New Zealand offers to pay compensation to the families of those who suffered death and injury from what was left behind on our watch?
