With all the changes in the world over the past year, we are moving from an era that was dominated by solar energy to a more balanced world of solar with the lunar. A classic and most recent example of this involves Olympic star, Simone Biles dropping out of the competition while stating that her "mind and body are simply not in sync" in her Instagram post.
Simone, who is astrologically considered an “empath” due to her sun sign, Pisces was expected to lead her team to the gold. Taking her power back and not being worried about others' definition of success, she prioritized her well-being and we are here for it! This was shortly after tennis star Naomi Osaka pulled out of the French Open and Wimbledon this year to focus on her mental health. Osaka has been very open about her struggle with depression.

These influential women have reminded us that it is important for all women to prioritize their mental and emotional well-being. One cannot be good without the other. There are so many ways to practice self care, The Financial Diet is a great resource for women to read about how they can be self-sufficient and put their needs first so that they can feel whole.
Having a self-care routine is also very helpful to keep your energy grounded and to avoid burn-out. One of our founder Pooja Kharbanda's favorite techniques is Marmatherapy, which can help to manipulate your energy and healing processes. In Marma therapy, a very light stimulation of points on the body is performed. It removes blockages from the energy points allowing for physical and emotional relaxation. During this ritual, you can use essential oils such as the Goop’s vagusnerveoil or Upliftkit which can be applied to the temples and back and sides of the neck. A team favorite here at Nadii Wellness is the Self Love Floral Bundle which can be incorporated into your self care routine in many ways including placing the flowers in your spiritual self-love bath or altar.
