Live Like a Pearl in 2022
“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.” —Melody Beattie
Each New Year presents us the opportunity to start fresh with renewed inspiration, goals, or personal commitments to do something differently, and better. As the door closes on a difficult year, it’s time to look ahead and consider how we can embrace the new one with balance, poise and wellbeing.
Here are our tips for a healthy, joyful and lustrous 2022.
Commit to Radical Self-Care
Now more than ever, the importance of self-care in our stressful times is a top priority, and may require extra diligence beyond the usual. With the world going through many changes that are out of our control, self-care often requires just getting back to the basics, but now with renewed commitment, such as:
- Getting enough sleep
- Eating healthy, nourishing food and vitamin and mineral supplements
- Moving your body with exercise and uplifting activities such as dancing, yoga and massage
- Not taking on too much by saying ‘no’ more
- Being discerning with exposure to negativity on the news and social media
- Spending time in nature
- Carving out time for doing something creative
- Playing uplifting, classical or meditative music to enhance your home and work environment
Often, the little things add up to lift our mood, keep us healthy and grounded, and inspire us to reach for our higher potential. Whether it’s picking up a forgotten hobby of writing, sketching or painting, joining a yoga class or just doing less, make 2022 your year for radical self-care.
Carpe diem – Don’t Wait to Wear Your Pearls
“I feel undressed if I don’t have my pearls on. My pearls are my security blanket.” – Lady Sarah Churchill
2022 is the year to wear your pearls, and to stop waiting for a certain occasion. Instead, make pearls a lifestyle, and embrace each day as another opportunity to wear them, no matter how ordinary the day may be.
We are familiar now with how quickly things can change, and have learned to not take for granted the things that matter most to us. In the same spirit of asking why we should keep the silverware locked away for another day, why wait to take your pearls out of the jewelry box? Don’t keep them hidden. This year, enhance your ensemble and make every day special.
Pearls for Self-Care
As the oldest gem known to mankind, the ethereal qualities of pearls have been revered throughout history, for good reason. Pearls can bring both an upliftment and soothing tranquility to our mood. They brighten our spirits and calm our energy. With the anxieties of our time, we naturally seek tools that will help calm and nurture us, and wearing your pearls is the perfect remedy.
In our blog, Pearls for Mental Health’ we discussed the power of pearls for soothing modern-day stress as a ‘wearable mood boost’. Have you considered pearls as a part of your radical self-care regime, and not just for fashion?
Bring Luster and Elegance to 2022
Like a pearl reflects light and seems to be illuminated from within, wearing pearls will enable you to embrace their qualities and uplift your own energy. Feel like a princess every day, and let the world see your pearls! From our family to yours, we wish you a happy, healthy and lustrous New Year.
