Movement is essential for a happy and healthy body, mind and being.

Spring has sprung, and with the change of season there’s no better time to get up a little earlier and get active. I do, however, know all too well how challenging it can be to bounce out of bed sometimes, and this is the very reason why I created Be genki Vital – a range of products that are designed to be used whenever you would like a little ‘pick me up’. Perfect for use first thing in the morning or after work to give you a little ‘boost’ prior to the evening’s activities. Utilising the properties of pure organic essential oils: Peppermint, Lemon Myrtle, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. An uplifting blend of essential oils that are renowned for promoting circulation of energy, restoring vitality, lifting the spirits, enhancing concentration and overcoming mental fatigue. Positively magnificent to have around! If you do find it difficult to get going in the morning, or reach for that 3rd cup of coffee in the afternoon, I would love to suggest you try the following revitalising ritual. By layering Be genki products you get the benefits of invigorating essential oils and herbs intensified. Add to that the other suggestions, mentioned below, and you’ll be bouncing around like the energiser bunny.

Be genki ‘pick me up’ ritual for a spring in your step

For the next month make the effort to move your body every day. Set the alarm clock 30 minutes earlier and get out of bed. Whether its a brisk 15 minute walk around the block, a half hour jog in the park, a yoga class, workout at the gym, swim at the beach, laps in the pool, or bicycle ride, do something to get your body moving. After a month of being on my back due to an injury, I’ll be easing in to exercise with a daily Zen Ki Yoga Spring session { 1 } in my living room.

Whilst in the shower, add 6 – 8 drops of Be genki Vital oil blend { 2 } to the corner of your shower floor. Step in and take a 5 minute warm shower. Allow the steam to infuse the essential oils within your shower environment. Close your eyes and take a moment to focus on your breathing. Take 3 deep breaths. With every inhale breathe in the natural and organic plant scents to invigorate your senses. With every exhale breathe out your worries and any stress.

Once out of the shower, massage your skin with Be genki Vital body oil { 3 }, containing pure organic plant oils that nourish and soften your skin, whilst the essential oils promote circulation of energy, restoring vitality and overcoming mental fatigue. Take this opportunity to practice positive self-talk, gifting a little self-acceptance and gratitude to your body. Thanking it for all it is and all that it has the potential to be. Start at the feet and work your way up your legs, buttocks and tummy with gentle massage motions that stimulate circulation. Finish with gentle kneading of your arms.

Instead of starting your day with a coffee, change things up for the next 30-days and notice the difference in your mental clarity and physicality. Enjoy a pot of Be genki Vital herbal tea { 4 } a blend of herbs – including green tea, lemongrass, ginger, withania and peppermint – that are beneficial for easing adrenal exhaustion, and stimulating an awakening feeling. Add a teaspoon of the loose organic tea leaves to your infuser and let it remain for 5 to 10 minutes in freshly boiled water. Ideally wait until the water has cooled a little before adding to the teapot as boiling water can potentially damage the beneficial properties that your herbal tea contains. Also aim to use good quality drinking water as opposed to tap water. Remember to remove the infuser after 5 to 10 minutes.

Keep a bottle of Be genki Vital face mist { 5 } handy throughout the day, whether it be on your work desk, or in the living room. When you need a little ‘pick me up’, close your eyes, and spritz a little mist over your face. A refreshing and cooling effect with natural antiseptic properties that help to kill bacteria and stimulate healthy skin renewal. Great for all skin types, especially oily skin and acne.

In the afternoon, when you get home from work, light a Be genki Vital candle { 6 } to freshen up your living space and provide that much appreciated ‘pick me up’ to enjoy the evening.

Be happy. Be healthy. Be vibrant. Be genki.
