What Happens When Others Speak Fear Into Your Plans?

Apr 25, 2021 Nourish Editors

Welcome, we’re so glad you’re here! We’ve all heard the expression, ‘go big or go home,’ right? Or how about, ‘never live with regret’? Or this one, ‘how will you know if you don’t try?’ When we were children, we tended to ‘do’ first, and ask questions later. We were impulsive, experimental and fearless. We learned to ride a bike only after many scraped and bloodied knees. We were constantly being taught new subjects in school, in order to provide us the information needed, to create the foundation for what we might like to do as a profession. 

Lessons From The Garden

Apr 18, 2021 Nourish Editors

I make no claims to be an expert gardener. The following are not tips on how best to prune your roses, or tricks for keeping pests away. Rather, these seven lessons learned from the garden are as spiritual as they are practical. When practiced regularly, these teachings promise more than a bountiful harvest, they promise a healthy state of mind.

There is More to Color Than Meets the Eye

Apr 11, 2021 Nourish Editors

I was walking to the local market last week in Sag Harbor, New York, on an overcast, gray March day. There was a chill in the air. The trees were also a Winter worn shade of gray, spreading their bare branches against the dusty sky like outstretched, tired fingers. I was cold and feeling rushed and kind of blah. As I approached the entrance to the market, three giant planters popped into my view, bursting with pink and yellow happiness. One look at the big, bright, pink tulips and other blooms, and suddenly it felt like a warm Spring day. I stopped, and went from planter to planter, taking in the colors, like an infusion of cheer and hopefulness. I suddenly felt more vibrant. I was smiling. I took a photo of the flowers, focusing in on the muted daylight landing on the magenta petals. There was a hint of yellow just behind my cropped image. Color!

What Is My Life's Purpose

Apr 04, 2021 Nourish Editors

Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here! As Mother Nature begins to awaken and wipe the sleep from her eyes, we start to see the newness all around us. Our morning walks through Central Park, in New York City, turn into a treasure hunt for the gifts left while we were sleeping. New buds are on the trees, the daffodils are blooming. The ducks, geese and turtles are busy stretching their limbs and sunbathing. Nature knows exactly what to do and when to do it. How amazing would it be to always know?! To be so connected to yourself, and your environment, that your path is so clear, so free, so understood and uncluttered. It’s not so easy for humans, is it? It’s not easy to really know what we are meant to do, or who we are meant to be. And it really gets tricky when we know there must be more, because we feel that deep in our core.

Learning to Walk

Mar 28, 2021 Nourish Editors

When I was 22 years old, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand, alone. I worked at a school where I was the only American in sight, and lived in a neighborhood that tourists had never heard of. It took me weeks before I could even pronounce my address to my tuk tuk drivers. It was in that place of complete unknowing, that I discovered meditation.

Do I Need a Life Coach

Mar 28, 2021 Nourish Editors

Nourish has always been an ardent fan of this duo, who bring love, energy, and understanding on how to break chronic patterns in our thoughts; and who highlight the actions that can hold us back. We have asked Sherri and Derek Green to join forces with Nourish, and explain in greater detail, exactly what coaching is. Over the coming weeks, we will publish some great advice from these beautiful people, focusing on how best to work through the many issues we all face daily.

The Healing Power of Pets

Mar 21, 2021 Nourish Editors

My friend Sherri and I were walking GoGo, my 7.5-pound Chihuahua/Papillon foster doggy, down a forested road in Montauk. We were reviewing the turn of events that left Sherri and her boyfriend Rich, with a pending adoption application for this ‘in demand pocket-sized bundle of love’. Sherri went from ‘someday, maybe we’ll get a dog’ to ‘I want her, I must have her’, after babysitting GoGo for just one day. Like many people during the pandemic, she realized that the benefits and joys of having a four-legged family member far outweighed any hesitancy.

Dreaming of a Good Night's Sleep

Mar 07, 2021 Nourish Editors

The alarm ringtone sounded for the third snooze at 8:05 a.m. I sat up quickly, remembered I had a phone interview in 25 minutes, and popped my eyes open. I had about 3.5 hours of sleep after another night of insomnia, and I needed to power up my groggy brain and my computer to interview Javier Suarez, Certified Sleep Coach and Regional Wellness Director at Six Sense Resorts, about the Science of Sleep.

The Best Professional Facial Treatments for Skin

Feb 28, 2021 Nourish Editors

Our skin, and how we look after it, seems to be the topic of every conversation we are having with friends currently. We are all investing time and energy checking it, caring for it, and nurturing it with the best products we can find. Some of us are also going a step further and experimenting with the world of ‘at home devices’, and the more invasive treatments available on the market. We, at Nourish, feel the time is right - as things begin to open up, and we are able to go back to our usual routines - to delve deeper into finding the best facial treatments for your skin. We spoke with two experts: ITEC International Licensed Medical Esthetician, Victoria Kroshyna, and Master Aesthetic Artist/Healer, Michelle Calabrese.

Love Is Everything

Feb 13, 2021 Nourish Editors

Love, it’s the one word that confounds like no other. Poets, painters, writers, sailors, psychologists, pretty much every person ever born, ponders the mysterious and magical force that is love. Through the course of a lifetime, our hearts are either full or broken, seeking or soothed, elevated, connected, inspired, and moved, through love’s power. Yet, while we associate love with some magic force from our hearts, there is actually a science, and a love potion (made of hormones), that demystifies some of what happens in our brains, that causes us to feel the emotions we define as love.

ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO Kundalini Yoga is for Me

Feb 07, 2021 Nourish Editors

I am now halfway through this wondrous journey known as Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training - KYTT200HR - and I must say, with a big smile that radiates throughout my entire face, and somehow has me as enlivened as is Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat when he gleefully says; “I like”; I have experienced many highs from these teachings during the training. Some highs result in many minutes of ecstatic bliss and reverie, from the vast visceral experiences they bring, while the effect of other highs brings about a flood of tears. These moments of sobbing are still highs, they are not lows, since they are attributed to the divine intelligence that creates life. I feel them deep within me, when my experience of a krya (a set of postures); mantra (the mind projects); and asana (posture), is so plentiful, that the resulting affection it brings cascades out of me in a river of emotional tears.

The Power of Connection

Jan 24, 2021 Nourish Editors

Over the past year, words such as isolation, social distancing, quarantine and remote, have filled our minds and colored our lives. Words that describe a necessary reality for us to, quite literally, stay away from each other. The pain of losing our outlet for social connection has been palpable. Loneliness, already an alarming issue pre-pandemic, has become an exacerbated serious challenge for millions and millions of people.

Jan 10, 2021 Nourish Editors

What Are Adaptogens, and How to Pick the Right Ones for Your Skin Type

Dec 06, 2020 Nourish Editors

There's a hot new buzzword in wellness, and it runs the gamut from mushroom coffee to ashwagandha face cream: We're, of course, talking about the elusive world of adaptogens. Rooted in ancient tradition (they've been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years), adaptogens are commonly ingested for physical wellbeing. However, most recently, these once-medicinal ingestibles can now be found on the list of star ingredients in your beauty products. And while it's no secret the seemingly new fad has been popping up more and more along the skincare aisle, you might be wondering what exactly it means for your routine.

The Healing Journey

Nov 22, 2020 Nourish Editors

This year has been an emotional rollercoaster for many. Across the world we have seen families torn apart, and we have felt a huge sense of loss resulting from illness of all kinds, not just Covid. This virus has created a loss of income and challenged people in ways we never could have imagined.Lockdowns have resulted in enforced solitude, which has increasingly led to depression and anxiety. For many there is a pervasive sense of being overwhelmed - trying to be parents, carers, teachers - everyone taking on duties over and above their usual routine and, all the while, coping with the challenges of doing this while confined to their homes.

The Benefits Of Dry Brushing

Sep 21, 2020 Nourish Editors

Dry brushing, or as some aptly call it, body brushing, is a favorite treatment of perpetually glowy-skinned celebrities like thanks to its ability to exfoliate dull, dry skin into oblivion. Although this centuries-old beauty ritual is met with equal amounts of skepticism and enthusiasm, chances are you've heard at least a little about it from your wellness-worshipping peers.
