Noor Fares Shares Her Holistic Approach to Ease Lockdown

During lockdown, all we need is positive thoughts and positive energy, Holistic traditions can help us to achieve this mind clarity. Lebanese jewelry designer Noor Fares asked Holistic Expert Jasmine Hemsley, founder of @hemsleyhemlsey and award-winning author "East by West" to share her favorite tips to keep your energy flowing — inspired by Ayurveda and other holistic health philosophies.


  1.  Tongue Tingling

It’s an Ayurvedic practice designed to rid the tongue of the fuzzy build-up that happens overnight. Use the Tongue Tingler tool, which is a U-shaped copper tool, for 10-seconds to prevent bad breath and infections.


  1.  Sound Bath

It’s not your usual bath, but more of a listening session, where you get to lay back and “bathe” in the healing tones of crystal bowls.


  1.  Abhyanga Self-Massage

Treat your body with a self-massage using warm oil. It’s another Ayurvedic practice to check in with your body, and to show yourself some love and care. It also increases circulation, stimulates organ function, helps your body detox and improves sleep, among many other benefits.


  1. Walk Barefoot

This practice, known as “earthing,” is a powerful way of reconnecting to nature. Walking barefoot on a natural surface, such as grass, has been proven to increase antioxidants, reduce inflammation and improve sleep.


  1. Sage-Cleanse Your Space

While spending a lot of time at home during lockdown, make sure to create a supportive home environment. You can cleanse your space by burning. It’s a traditional practice that originates from several native American tribes and is believed to rid a space, objects or people of negative energy and evil spirits, and bring back purity and positivity.
