I created Indochine Natural to improve skin and hair care. At the same time, you can improve emotional wellness with daily rituals. At Indochine Natural our influences are the romance of a by-gone era called INDOCHINE. The influences of French colonial Indochina. The eclectic mixtures of East meet West. Chic fashion. Elegant lifestyles.
I formulate natural skincare to capture the essence of romantic escapism. Our artisan-crafted body care products evoke old-fashioned and pure values from simpler times. The exotic fragrances will take you away to a time and place where life moves more leisurely. These can all help improve emotional wellness.
But you can do more for yourself. Try to make a conscious decision to slow down. You will need to change your daily routines. Incorporate daily rituals into your life. Use only natural skincare products. This will provide you with stability on both a physical and emotional level. You will become more grounded. You will be more focused. You will regain the ability to slow down. You will improve emotional wellness.
Some daily rituals to try
Schedule some “do nothing time.” That’s what I said. Make a space in your diary to do nothing. And while you are at it, take a small reward. Your favorite coffee in a cozy coffee shop. And yes, turn off all those devices. You don’t want any interruptions.
Skip that hurried shower. Slow down in a bath. Take your time. Your muscles will relax and your mind unwind. Again, turn off those devices.
Attempt to single-task instead of multitasking. When you are trying to do ten things at the same time you are setting yourself up for mistakes. You’ll have to spend more time correcting them. Set up a “to-do” list. Focus on one task at a time. When that’s finished, move onto the next task.
Start a relaxing skincare ritual in the evening. For example, many customers find our all-natural Patchouli Lavender Face Wash very relaxing. This could be followed by our organic face oil. Again, a very relaxing fragrance formulation.
Establish a sleep ritual. Go to bed at the same time each night. Reading a book can help you relax. Establish other small rituals to signal that it is bedtime. For example, light a scented candle. A few drops of essential oil on your pillow will work wonders. Many suggest Lavender. But there are others that are more interesting and just as effective. Be daring, try a new fragrance. I find Cedarwood, Clary Sage and Patchouli are good for sleep. Check through our range of essential oils
Go for evening walks in a park or along a beach. Leave your phone at home. Give your mind some peace.
Say to say “no” more often. Get out of the habit of agreeing to do things you don’t enjoy. You will feel liberated, and more at ease.
How to make a start to improve emotional wellness
I’m not saying this is easy. I would suggest starting with one ritual. Get it established. Prove to yourself that I can do it. Then slowly add more.
When we slow down, we create space in our minds. We think more clearly. Make better decisions. And yes, feel and look better.
Try it. Let me know how it goes.
