How to Use Colour Psychology to Increase Your Overall Wellness…

Have you ever wondered why some people and children have a favourite colour? Why when a child’s favourite colour is orange, do they prefer to eat orange fruit, wear orange clothes and always choose the orange popsicle when offered a variety of other flavours? Orange makes them happy and puts them in a good mood. Is this a coincidence or is there more at play here? 

Psychologists and scientists have long believed that colours can impact your mood, sleep, energy and eating habits. It’s called colour psychology or colour therapy. And you can use it to create a wellness plan for yourself. 1

Colour therapy uses the benefits of different colours and shades to affect your wellbeing. As each colour has a unique light wavelength, the colour therapy principles use the energy of each shade to boost your mental and physical health.

  • Red and pink colours are linked to your blood, circulation and breathing. Use these colours to help raise your pulse, blood pressure and the speed that you breathe, and strengthen your veins. Wearing red or pink for a high energy workout could improve your results. Red is also linked to feeling of passion, so keep a red outfit at the ready for date nights!
  • Orange, as one of the warmest tones, notably resembles the colour of the sunset – one of nature’s most calming and peaceful gifts. Watching a spectacular sunset can rebalance your joy, optimism and wisdom. Orange is also said to inspire creativity and enthusiasm.
  • Yellow is the most intense colour in the spectrum. This colour can make you feel happier. It can bring out your intelligence and wisdom. It’s also said to bring energy and encourage action. Yellow flowers can brighten your day and uplift you!
  • Green colours have a harmonious, calming effect. This is why many people choose to have plants in their homes and on their desks at work. And, when you’re indoors for a prolonged period of time, you know the exhilarating feeling of getting out into nature with the greenery.
  • Blue also encourages relaxation and calm, which is why it’s such a popular colour on the walls of a bedroom. Many people prefer to choose blue mats to practice yoga or daily meditation. Stronger shades of blue support the brain’s thought processes, while lighter shades help improve concentration. 2
  • Purple or indigo colours are beneficial for problems with the eyes, ears and nose, while more violet shades of purple with a pink tone can help relax your muscles and nervous system. Violet colours are also useful when meditating.
  • Black is often regarded as colour of authority and power. 3 If you’re looking to take charge this is the colour you should be gravitating to.

There’s a whole world of colour out there! Embrace what it means and how it can improve your overall Active Wellness.

The Amazing History of Honouring Men on Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is celebrated every year around the world. The date is different from country to country. Nevertheless, it’s still an important day to celebrate.

Moms are simply the best, but dads deserve a day to be recognized for all they do too! Did you ever wonder how Father’s Day began? It’s quite a story! It started with a young girl who had five siblings who were all being raised by their single father. Her name was Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington and this is her story.1

In May of 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd sat in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon. She decided she wanted to designate a day for her dad, William Jackson Smart. Dodd’s mother had died in childbirth, and Dodd’s father, a Civil War veteran, had taken the responsibility of singlehandedly raising the newborn and his other five children.

The following year, Dodd wanted to celebrate Father’s Day on June 5th, her father’s birthday and petitioned for the holiday to be recognized in her city. Needing more time to arrange the festivities, Spokane’s mayor pushed the date back by two weeks, and the first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, according to the Spokane Regional Convention and Visitor Bureau. 

In 1916, President Wilson attended the Father’s Day celebration in Spokane and confirmed that he was working to make the holiday recognized at a national level. Congress initially resisted because they were worried about commercialization. It took 56 years before President Richard Nixon signed Father’s Day into law in 1972.2

At the first Father’s Day celebration, young women handed out red roses to their fathers during a church service, and large baskets full of roses were passed around, with attendees encouraged to pin on a rose in honor of their fathers – red for the living and white in memory of the deceased. 

One hundred and eleven years later, we still celebrate Father’s Day every May and June in some countries such as the United Kingdom, France and Germany. In other countries like Sweden, this is celebrated in November. It’s an anticipated day not just for fathers, but for stepfathers, uncles, grandpas and the other men who take on the role of fatherhood for children everywhere.

Healthy Men are Happy Men…

Men might not always pay full attention to their health. Too often, they put things off or they are too embarrassed to discuss any health issues, even with their doctor. Men’s Health Week (14th – 21st June) has the purpose of raising awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys1. To honour this week, here are a few tips for all you men out there to help keep your health in tip top condition:

Watching the Body Weight… Physical activity of any kind helps a person lose weight. A total of 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week is recommended for those aged between 19 and 64.2 Controlling your weight should be a top priority and something that will define your health status throughout your life. 

Healthy Eating… Food is more than just fuel. Your diet can help fight disease and keep you feeling younger. Since men have more muscle and typically are bigger than women, they require more calories throughout the day. Moderately active males likely need 2,200 to 2,800 calories per day. 

For energy and disease prevention, men should eat whole grains such as whole-grain bread, pasta, cereal, brown rice, oats, barley, beans, lentils, fruits and vegetables. These foods are high in fiber, help manage hunger and fullness and help fend off certain health conditions. Based on concentrated wholefood supplements, Nikken’s Kasai for Men contains lycopene, powered garlic, tomato and pumpkin seed, helping to contribute to men’s wellbeing.

Managing Stress… Working all day and keeping everything under control means you’re probably under more stress than you realize. There are lots of ways to minimize stress – staying active, exercising and communicating with your loved ones are just some of them. Find the methods that suit you the best, practice them daily, and you’ll have a calmer and a better attitude for the long-haul.

Scheduling Regular Check Ups… Regular check-ups can help find potential health issues before they become an issue. When you see your doctor regularly, they are able to detect health conditions early. Early detection gives you the best chance for getting the right treatment quickly, avoiding any complications. Prevention is always better than cure. Therefore, it’s essential to see your doctor for regular screenings and annual check-ups to continue your Active Wellness journey.

Finding Balance… Providing for yourself or/and for your family often requires long working hours. It can wear you out physically and emotionally. Avoiding burnout is a must if you want to enjoy life long-term, so you need to learn how to balance your work and your family more effectively than before. Talk to your employer, talk to your partner, and find a solution that works for both of you.

Remember, you’re doing it all for you and your loved ones and for a chance to spend more quality time with them. That’s why lots of men don’t really mind altering their habits and introducing positive changes to their lives in order to become healthier, happier and better.

Introducing KENZEN TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare…

Good for You and Sustainable for Nature

Sometimes it’s possible to make a good thing better. That’s what we’ve done with the KENZEN TRUE elements® skin care product range. Not only have we upgraded the already advanced formulas, but we have also added a higher level of organic certification and changed our packaging to be more eco-friendly.

Why KENZEN… We’ve added ‘KENZEN’ to the brand – Kenzen means “healthy” in Japanese – we are tying together our nutritional products with our skin care ones. In fact, you’ll notice the new KENZEN TRUE elements® contains an even higher level of natural and organic ingredients – making it a great nutritional addition for your skin.  

Organic Certification… TRUE elements® was always certified organic by EcoCert®, but now we’ve added COSMOS ORGANIC to our certifications. Adding this gold standard in international certification, COSMOS Organic means the KENZEN TRUE elements® range must comply with even more stringent guidelines. Complying with COSMOS Organic certification ensures responsible usage of natural resources and responsibility towards biodiversity and eco-friendly production with high-quality natural and organic ingredients via processes that respect people and the environment.

We take our commitment to the environment and to natural organic skin care seriously.  

Our KENZEN TRUE elements® formulations are formulated along the same ingredient guidelines as our nutritionals. That means no GMOS, pesticides, parabens, polyethylene glycol (PEG), silicone, dyes, aroma, controversial ingredients, gluten, alcohol or aluminum salts. 

Because we respect the ocean and its’ precious inhabitants, the seaweeds used in KENZEN TRUE elements® are harvested by hand and by boat from the Iroise Sea in Brittany – France, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Just as it’s important to fish sustainably, it’s equally crucial to harvest seaweed and other marine plants respectfully. Harvesting by hand and boat helps to preserve resources and maintain a low carbon footprint. Another step towards our mission to be ‘in harmony with nature’ and sharing Active Wellness with the Global Wellness Community.

The products… The first products relaunched are the Moisturizing Face Cream (# 2044) and the Youth Activ Serum (# 2042) with the addition of the brand NEW Revitalizing Face Serum (# 2062). 

The two serums are formulated to complement the Moisturizing Face Cream. To be applied on a clean face before applying the Moisturizing Face Cream, the Youth Activ Serum targets anti-aging and dark pigmentation spots. The Revitalizing Serum is formulated to energize dull, tired-looking skin with marine minerals. Both serums help decrease the appearance of fine lines and boost the hydration of the Moisturizing Face Cream. Depending on the needs of your skin, you can choose which serum best suits you; however, you can also use one in the morning and the other at night. 

Key Ingredients… The key ingredients in these advanced formulas include three different types of seaweed extracts: Organic Chondrus, Organic Laminaria, Organic Ulva Lactuca and sea plant: Organic Sea Fennel. Along with High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Shea Butter and Marine Magnesium Concentrate. 

Nikken is committed to working in tandem with nature and Planet Earth, so the KENZEN TRUE elements® products are Good for You and Sustainable for Nature.

Get Summer Ready!

We all love Summer. It’s a great time to get a healthy dose of Vitamin D whilst boosting our feel-good factor as we spend more time outdoors having fun. It’s not just a feel-good boost we get from the sunshine; we get many other benefits too. In good weather we are more likely to spend more time outside in the fresh air, maybe lunch in the park rather than indoors, a family outing to the beach or a get together with friends. These types of events make us feel happy and relaxed, so we associate sunshine with feel good moments and happy memories.

Something new… Brighter weather can make us feel more inspired, creative and even more daring. Use this Summer as an opportunity to start a new activity or challenge – and when you track your progress, you’ll become much more encouraged to reach your final goal. Why not try achieving a personal best in running or surprising yourself by trying a new activity – all fun ways to stay motivated and focused.

Energize… Food is our best source of energy. To help keep energy levels up, we really need to eat healthy – integrating the most nutritious foods in our diets. Foods that help our energy levels include wholegrains, nuts and some fruits (grapes, apples, oranges, peaches, pears and grapefruit) and vegetables with a high fiber content such as peas, beans and leafy greens. 

Support… Our bodies are made to move. Whether you choose to get your regular activity by going to the gym or walking the dog, it’s important to find something you enjoy doing. Taking part in regular, moderate activity is not only part of an active wellness lifestyle, it can also help us feel more confident too. Sometimes our body might need a little extra support to help make activities more comfortable. Nikken’s kinetic KenkoTherm® DUK Tape is a flexible kinetic tape that you can apply for extra support during activities.

And Relax… We all know how great we feel after a good nights’ sleep!  Sleep is extremely important to our health regardless the time of the year. With longer, brighter days it can be difficult to get some shut-eye. Create your own sleep sanctuary – according to “the sleep charity”, an ideal bedroom temperature is around 16-18°C.1.  The Nikken Kenko PowerSleep® Mask… not only eliminates light distraction, it also produces an area of magnetic flux for comfort.

Make sure you’re feeling at your best inside and out to max out your Summer fun this year!

Get ready for a great Summer with our Get Summer Ready savings:

Healthy Feet and Active Wellness…

Do you ever think about how important your feet are for your health? Good foot health is essential for an active life especially now Spring is here bringing better weather and more outside activities.

Feet may seem quite small compared to the rest of our bodies, but they account for more than a quarter of all the bones in the entire body. With 26 bones and 33 joints, our feet provide us with a solid foundation of balance, posture and support. They also have connections to our limbs, our heart and other vital organs. Because of these connections, they are pretty accurate indicators of our overall health and wellbeing. So paying attention to your feet and making sure they’re always pain free and healthy, means you are also helping to ensure the rest of your body is as healthy as possible too. 

The importance of feet also serves as the foundation for reflexology – which studies how one part of the body relates to another. Practitioners of reflexology rely on a “map” of the foot, where each part of our feet corresponds to another body part, notably the internal organs. Pressure applied to different parts of the foot is believed to stimulate or activate corresponding parts of the body.1

Stretching the feet, ankles and lower legs every day and before exercising helps keep the muscles strong and avoid injury. Two of the Nikken flagship products are the insoles. Nikken’s founder Isamu Masuda developed the magnetic insoles to simulate the therapeutic pebbles in the Japanese public hot baths. The Kenko mStrides® and Kenko mSteps® can both be cut to size to fit right into your shoes. The magnetic nodules massage the soles of the feet and act similarly to the acupressure practiced as part of reflexology. People who work while standing find Kenko insoles particularly helpful in keeping their feet energized and stable.

We know that keeping a healthy weight is beneficial for the whole body but in particular for our feet. Excess weight puts pressure on the feet, leading to foot pain, stress fractures and other health issues.  

Clean, dry and moisturised feet… Healthy feet start with good hygiene. Thoroughly clean and scrub your feet with soap and water when you bathe. Afterward make sure you dry them well. Fungal organisms love moisture, so depriving them of any wetness will make it more difficult for them to thrive. Nikken’s TRUE elements® Hand & Foot Cream helps soothe dry hands and feet with Shea butter – known to nourish skin whilst the seaweed extract Chondrus, has moisturising properties.

Feet and ankle support… It’s important to make sure that shoes fit properly and are in good condition. Some of us have a favorite pair that are especially comfortable; however, if they are worn out inside or outside, they can cause foot strain. Along with the feet, the ankles need protecting too. The Nikken KenkoTherm® Ankle Wrap is great for use during exercise or just daily activities providing comfort and support. Another great support is the KenkoTherm Duk® Tape.  Flexible enough to be applied to most joint areas Duk Tape helps support joints and comfort stressed muscles with its Far Infrared and Negative Ion technologies.

This spring, let’s keep out feet healthy and moving towards Active Wellness…

Restore our Earth…

Nikken is celebrating Earth Day on 22nd April 2021

“A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity.” Earthday.org

Our Earth needs to stay healthy to support our jobs, livelihoods, health and happiness. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. 

There are many things we can do to help restore and reconnect to it at the same time because protecting our planet, starts with each and every single one of us.

The three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle… Cutting down on what we throw away and following the three “R’s” will help conserve natural resources and landfill space.

Community clean up… Whether it’s two people or ten, a well organized clean up can have a major impact on our Earth. Finding the right location (a local park or community streets) this action can help not only to create long lasting friendship, but most importantly to help restore our earth and reconnect to Mother Nature in the all-important great outdoors. While you’re there, you can even plant a tree! Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.

Finding new ways to reconnect to Mother Nature1 might help many of us overcome modern day challenges such as stress caused by a busy lifestyle or feeling secluded in these challenging times.

Emerging scientific research has revealed a surprisingly positive and overlooked environmental factor on health: direct physical contact with the vast supply of electrons on the surface of the Earth. Modern lifestyle separates humans from such contact. 

Reconnection with the Earth’s electrons has been found to promote intriguing physiological changes and subjective reports of well-being.2 Grounding (or Earthing) refers to connecting with Earth. Connecting with the Earth’s negative charge can help reduce and neutralize unwanted positive charges and help shield against Electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which we build up in our daily lives – restoring a healthful natural balance. There’s nothing that compares with feeling the Earth under bare feet or swimming in a lake or ocean, so we should do those activities as often as we can.

Urban living often prohibits the natural ways to reconnect with nature. Nikken’s KenkoGround® (#88011) is a conductive grounding mat that serves to reconnect you with Mother Nature by connecting to the Earth’s negative charge and makes grounding easy to accomplish indoors. Meanwhile, indoor living continues and the KenkoGround® can help make a difference in how we feel overall.

With its built-in silver ions, implanted by vacuum sputtering technology for high efficacy of conduction, this portable grounding mat also benefits from antibacterial properties. The Hydrophobic technology included in its top layer also creates water resistant properties. 

This year Nikken is celebrating Earth Day with 20% SAVINGS on the KenkoGround® (#88011). Discover more at: https://bit.ly/3v5vaJ5.

Reconnect with Mother Nature…

Nature is a wonderful place to transform, awaken and often help find a boost in creativity. It’s important that we make an effort to reconnect with nature for our overall health and wellbeing. 

Throughout history, people have grounded themselves in nature. That is, they have found peace and tranquillity in their surroundings. Native Americans for example, believe that they are a part of nature and not separate from it, as many people might experience today.

Even if you already go outside every day, you can still find new ways to reconnect with Mother Nature and maybe you can also help make a positive impact on the environment. When we combine our small, everyday actions, we can make a more connected and healthier world for ourselves and future generations. This might be the start of a new nature-focused routine that can last a lifetime…

Help plant a new life… There is no better way to honour Mother Nature than to plant new life such as a tree, flowers, a vegetable garden, etc. Or join others in volunteering actions to tidy up a community garden or plant new trees and flower beds in the local neighbourhood. Emerging ourselves in the Wellness Community spirit can offer us a chance to not only socialise and meet new people, but most importantly reconnect with Mother Nature whilst having fun.

Make contact with the Earth… Taking our shoes and socks off whilst outside and sinking our feet in the ground beneath us gives us the feeling of being grounded.1 Going out in nature and revelling in its beauty, its stillness and its wisdom allows us to recharge and become more recentred.

Unplug from Technology… Smartphones, tablets and computers to name a few, are a huge part of modern life, but sometimes it’s necessary to unplug to give ourselves the space to really connect to what matters most. According to research from Rescue Timemost people, on average, spend 3 hours and 15 minutes on their phones. If you unplug from technology, think of all the free time you’ll have! You’ll also be doing your bit for Mother Nature – as you reduce your energy consumption and shrink your carbon footprint.

Take your daily activities outside… Exercising outdoors carries many benefits both physically and mentally. Yet another great way to reconnect with Mother Nature. Meeting a friend? Go for outdoor activities such as a picnic or a walk in the park.  

Bring Mother Nature Indoors… There are a few ways to bring nature indoors such as getting some house plants and keeping windows open if weather permits. This will help cleanse the energy in the house, giving it a more relaxing and natural atmosphere.

Reduce Plastic Usage… When plastic isn’t recycled it can release toxic chemicals into the air we breathe as well as nearby water sources. This can create a variety of health problems for both humans and animals. Plastic is everywhere and sometimes unavoidable, but there are ways to reduce plastic usage. Some of these ways include, using a recyclable and reusable water bottle such as the PiMag® Water Bottle, avoiding items sold in plastic containers, bringing your own mug to a coffee shop and not using plastic utensils and straws. The PiMag® Water Bottle is environmentally responsible in many ways. For example, the biodegradable bottle shell (containing no BPA or other potentially harmful compounds) eventually breaks down into natural soil nutrients. With a replaceable filter cartridge, the PiMag® Water Bottle eliminates the need to purchase bottle water thereby helping to reduce plastic usage and your carbon footprint. 

To help you reduce plastic usage and enjoy clean, freshly filtered PiMag® water, Nikken is offering great SAVINGS OF 20% on selected PiMag® Water products until the 17th April 2021. Discover more at: www.nikken.com/eu/

Reconnecting with Mother Nature doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a week camping and hiking to the top of a mountain. Nature is a place to connect to your true self so whatever it may be, go outside and start reconnecting to Mother Nature!

The Importance of drinking Filtered Water…

Water is life and clean water is crucial for Active Wellness. We need water to survive as our bodies are made up of 70% water, which is bound in our cell membranes. Water is more important than food – we can go up to a month without food, but can only survive a week without water. 

Drinking clean, pure water is so important. If water is not treated, filtered or purified, it can make us unwell. These days, we have advanced water technology, such as water filtration systems at our finger tips. However, ‘filtered’ tap water is still better than standard tap water and bottled water. Let’s take a look at the benefits of water filtration and using water filters.

Cost effective… Using water filters to filter tap water is much cheaper than buying bottled water. It’s also more eco-friendly because of less plastic being used. By having a water filtration system in your home, you could be saving yourself a considerable amount of money and you will be drinking higher quality water that has been filtered accordingly.

Care for the environment… Bottled water is a source of pollution, as it takes the plastic bottle 450 years1 to degrade. By filtering tap water in your home, you will be helping the environment. And for those of us who have easy access to drinkable water, now more than ever it’s our responsibility to help decrease our plastic waste and carry refillable water bottles everywhere instead of single-use bottled water. With Nikken’s eco-friendly PiMag® Water Bottle, you’re not only getting clean PiMag® water, you are also helping to decrease plastic waste and your personal carbon footprint!

Filtration removes impurities and sediments… Filtration helps to remove water impurities and contaminants such as chlorine and heavy metals. At the same time, water filters help to retain important minerals such as magnesium, calcium and zinc. They could help protect you from toxins and ensure that you consume healthy minerals. Nikken’s PiMag Waterfall® is designed to produce water with added minerals, in a pH range of 8.5-9.5. Ionized water decreases oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). A high ORP contributes to unwanted oxidative decomposition. Ionized PiMag® water from the Waterfall can help offset the oxidizing effect of many elements of the modern diet and environment which can help slow down cellular destruction.

Water Filtration can help boost your health… Water filtration systems can be good for your health. The benefits are ten-fold, with skin hydration, nutrient absorption, weight loss, detoxification, digestion. Drinking pure water helps to support the immune system and mental health function.2 Filtered water can also bring added benefits when taking a shower, if you use the PiMag® Microjet Shower System. It uses a reduction/oxidation process to neutralize chlorine ions and injects air into the shower stream to increase the electronegative potential of the water for more effective filtration. 

Water is Life and Nikken is offering clean, filtered PiMag® water – not only for drinking, but also for bathing. From 22nd March until the 17th April 2021, you can enjoy great savings of 20% on selected state-of-the-art PiMag® water products. Discover more at www.nikken.com/eu/.

What’s on your bathroom shelf?

When it comes to what products we keep in our bathrooms, a lot has changed. If someone asked “What organic products do you have in the house?”, you might have said “fruit and veg”. But over the years, organic products have made their way from the kitchen, into other rooms of the house such as the bathroom. 

What does Organic mean?

Well, the products have been produced in a way that limits the use of synthetic materials or avoids them altogether. Organic products also promote balance in nature and conserve biodiversity. For example, restricted or no use at all of pesticides, antibiotics and growth hormones.

Why buy Organic?

The production process is less damaging to the environment and as a Global Wellness Community, we all like to do our bit and support it. Beside this, the products are more likely to contain better quality ingredients, which means they can work better too. 

What to look for?

Look out for products that are Organic Certified.  This means that the item has been through a rigorous application process in which the efficacy of its organic status has been tested at all points in its manufacture, effectively from the soil up. ECOCERT1 for example, is a European organic certification organisation based in France which besides food products, also certifies cosmetics, detergents, perfumes and textiles. The company inspects about 70% of the organic food industry in France and about 30% worldwide. ECOCERT is also a leading certifier of fair-trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per ECOCERT Fair Trade standards.

Try organic in your bathroom…

You’ll make a great impact not only on the environment but also on your skin by switching to organic. When you choose Nikken’s TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range, you are choosing products with certified natural ingredients without the added chemicals or synthetic fragrances that may upset the skin’s delicate natural balance. 

This product range represents a synergistic blend of organic seaweeds and coastline plants sustainably harvested from the Brittany coastline of France, making its ingredients formulas completely unique. And of course, it has been certified Organic by ECOCERT. The TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare range is suitable for all skin types including sensitive due to its gentle marine organic ingredients.2

To celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th of March 2021, we are offering savings of 50% on selected TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare*!

Visit www.nikken.com/eu/ to find out more.

*Offer not available on the Wellness Subscription Program due to it being a short-term offer.
