How easy it is to put ‘you’ on hold. Whether it’s because of responsibilities at work, commitments to your loved family and friends – in the blink of an eye months can pass with little self-reflection or time to feed your spirit. Before you know it – you’re tired out and fed up. Stress and neglect (emotional and physical) show up on the surface of our bodies – lacklustre skin, lank hair, in grumpy little frownlines and in sometimes-snappy responses to those we care for. Today’s Organika Hair blog is a reminder to ‘Nourish Thyself’ – inspired by our Co-Director Sarah Di Iorio who is currently doing just that – resting and replenishing her energy on a far-flung beach in warm climes. Let us inspired you to prioritise your own health and needs.
Yes. Do this. You’ll be surprised to find that what makes you happy could be quite boring to others. It might involve staying home and reading or just ‘being’. Forget the external voices. Do more of what makes you happy.
Go outside into the winter sunshine and invigorate your cells. Go away to sunnier shores for a week (or a weekend). New light, new sight, new start. Be a nudie rudie by the beach shore! Take care of your beautiful body and hair in the sunlight and saltspray. Make sure to protect your color with Alterna Bamboo Color Care UV+ Fade-Proof Fluide (find the Alterna range at your Organika Hair salon).
And if you can’t get to the sun…. dream about it and dress for it. These ‘mati’ evil eyes are a traditional Greek, Italian and Ottoman adornment – protecting and watching over you. Find your own protection amulet at Samantha Wills or The Dark Horse Jewellery.
Be with your girls. Or guys. Talk it through. Nourish thyself. Or at the very least, come in to Organika Hair where you can both talk and be pampered. Do you remember the last time you snorted with laughter catching up with mates?
Go green. By drinking a fibre-rich and nutrient packed green smoothie each morning, you’ll be alkalinizing your body. It’s a little like filling the car up with petrol, giving your engine the best chance to run smoothly all day. You’ll notice a change in your emotional health and wellbeing too. We promise.
On the beach or otherwise – style your hair in beautiful, natural, loose styles to reflect your newly found inner zen.
If you’re by the ocean, this all-nature wave enhancer will fit neatly next to your towel. Or, you can add salt to your warm water to make your own sea spray.
