Joseph Nogucci Zen Obsidian Bracelet – On a Sunday night I usually ask myself what it is gonna take for me to get through another busy week with work, family, and other life stresses. Sometimes it is a workout class in the morning before work or a nice cup of matcha green tea latte from Alfred’s in Brentwood. No matter what happens when I get up in the morning, I try to make sure that my weekly planned “treats” for myself are scheduled like a work meeting so that I do not miss that break time I give to myself. As important as it is to work hard, it is also important for us to remember that we need small rewards throughout the week to remind ourselves that we are just as important as all the other priorities in our lives. Sometimes women forget to take care of themselves and put themselves on the back burner because they think there is no time. But as they say at my HIIT Burn60 workout class, 60 minutes of running and weights is only 4% of your 24 hour day. So why shouldn’t we make sure that 4% of our day is spent taking care of ourselves whether it is working out or sitting down for a nice cup of tea.
Recently, I discovered a relatively affordable line of jewelry from Joseph Nogucci that I like because of their messaging. For example, one of my favorites is the Joseph Nogucci Black Obsidian bracelet with a crystal accent. I love the look of the sleek all black obsidian stone simply knotted together with a bright crystal bead that you can wear as a reminder to take a minute during your day and close your eyes and find your zen place. This bracelet is just a good way for any busy woman to look down at her wrist and remember to take a few deep breaths and breathe. Sometimes that is all the time we have in between work, errands, and family and this pretty reminder on your wrist will help remind you to stop and take a breather for yourself.
