“I use a mantra that was given to me by a Vedic teacher (a transcendental meditation practiced pioneered by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi) to meditate twice a day – 20 minutes in the morning and 20 in the afternoon or evening, depending on my schedule).”
My wellness objects
“There are certain objects that can magnify the feeling of wellbeing, and to help you take in more good vibes. Here are some of the little things I can’t go without:
1/ I use my jade roller in the morning to massage my face and reduce puffiness.
2/ My body brush is great for exfoliation and to encourage circulation and lymphatic drainage.
3/ Crystals give you inner power and help you to set intentions, manifest and feel calm, grounded and open to whatever comes your way.
4/ Tarot and inner compass cards give you clarity and can help with feeling calmer, more grounded and trusting in the universe – knowing that things will work out in every way they are destined to.
5/ My Thinx panties and Mooncup: I no longer use sanitary products, as I have learned that they can often be toxic to the body and produce a lot of waste, which is obviously bad for the environment. I use a Mooncup instead, which is reusable and so much more sustainable and eco-friendly (in addition to being much cheaper) and I recently discovered Thinx period-proof panties, which are just magical!
6/ I use a tongue scraper to remove the buildup of toxins on my tongue in the morning and before bed, according to ayurvedic tradition.
7/ I use natural and essential oils to make my own natural beauty remedies and for aromatherapy. The power of essential oils and aromatherapy to reduce stress and help you relax and feel more positive is so underrated! I use natural oils such as coconut, jojoba, almond, shea on my body instead of moisturizers, and dab on essential oil mixes instead of perfume or fragrance. Pro tip: sprinkle a few drops on your pillow if you need help sleeping.
8/ I remove my makeup with natural bamboo cotton pads instead of single-use, disposable cotton pads. These are reusable – and therefore account for far less waste – and made of really gentle natural fibers like bamboo and organic cotton, making them much more eco-friendly.”
