We are just a month away from Valentine’s Day… February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and Saint Valentine’s Day, as we know it, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. It occurs every year on the 14th February.

What is the meaning of it and why do we celebrate it?

This day was named after Saint Valentine. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still being used today.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, although written declarations didn’t appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine that still exists today was a poem by the Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. It’s now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England.1

Loving means sharing. Valentine’s Day is a day for sharing our care with our loved ones. In many places around the world, sweets, chocolate, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of Saint Valentine. Today, many of those same traditions are visible as lovers send bouquets of flowers and chocolates to one another on Valentine’s Day. We might think that Valentine’s Day as a holiday for couples; however, it’s also a day to celebrate the many loves and friendships in our lives.

The heart shape, by a modern definition, is an ideograph used to express the idea of the “heart” in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the core of emotion, affection, and love.

Look no further for the perfect Valentine gift that comes from your heart. Nikken has created the unique Kenko Heart Pendant and Valentine’s Day is the ideal time to declare your love! The pendant is stainless steel on one side and gold-plated on the other and is engineered with an 800-gauss neodymium magnet, symbolising the heart of Nikken.

Enjoy Valentine’s Day and lavish as much love and affection upon your loved ones as you can. But remember it just as important to do the same everyday.

Winter Wellbeing…

The holiday season is now over and Winter is approaching… this is a great time to boost your immune system and generally be healthier!

Some of us let diet and healthy eating habits fall by the wayside. Often, given the weather, exercise is sacrificed for warm nights spent indoors. With shorter days and colder weather, finding the motivation to stay healthy and active can be difficult. And this can lay the foundation for a weakened immune system, exposing us to illnesses. Here are some useful tips to help keep your health on top form:

Boost your Vitamin C intake. Vitamin C helps keep your immune system healthy and can help reduce the length and severity of a cold. To get the benefits, make sure you eat plenty of Vitamin C rich foods on a daily basis. Lemons and oranges are all in season right now and are packed full with vitamin C. Add lemon juice to cold or hot water for a tasty drink.

Get outside and get moving. According to research1, people tend to gain three to five kg on average during the winter months.When it’s cold and wet, you would be very tempted to stay inside in the warmth. But don’t get caught in that trap, you need to get outside! You need to expose your skin to natural daylight to boost your levels of Vitamin D. This is crucial to keep your bones and your immune system healthy. You also need to expose your eyes to daylight to help regulate your mood and sleep.

Eat your greens. We know that vegetables are good for us, but winter in particular is the perfect time to enjoy some dark leafy greens. Spinach and kale for example, are great source of vitamins and minerals to keep your body in shape during the winter months. One way to boost your vitamin intake is Nikken’s Organic KVB® Natural Food Mix – Chocolate flavour.This is a healthy meal replacement mix with organic Moringa, organic pea protein, organic vegetables, prebiotics and probiotics.

Sleep better. Sleep is important at any time of the year regardless the season.In the winter season, when the days are shorter,your body will naturally want to sleep longer and will adjust its rhythm to the hours of daylight. Use the longer evenings to relax before bedtime. Take a break from all electronic devices and read a book or spend quality time with your family. Try to go to bed as early as possible to give your body enough rest during the times it craves it the most.

Keep your brain engaged. Mental health wellbeing is as important as our physical wellbeing during the winter months. Keep yourself occupied by making plans like booking up a spring/summer holiday or even better; plan your Valentine’s Day, which is around the corner. Give the perfect gift this February: Nikken’s magnetic Kenko Heart Pendant! Suitable for both men and women its two sides are reversible and in silver or gold colours and go perfectly with either the Stainless Steel Perfect Link II® or the Gold Toned Magnetic Necklace from Nikken.

Take care of yourself this winter and enjoy an Active Wellness lifestyle.
