"Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens."*
The “Mindfulness” JUUX Collection addresses in a very positive, healthy, and beautiful way, an undoubtful certainty for all of us: we are individuals in constant change. Therefore in a constant process of adaptation, self-awareness, and acceptance. We all go through different situations which take different shapes throughout our life.
Each of us has her/his own way of adapting and her/ his own timing. However, this process is sometimes associated with something painful, dark, and depressive, when, in fact, it doesn’t have to be so, on the contrary, it is an inherent aspect of the complex existence that we are part of with no choice, and that for our own welfare and healthy development, we should embrace naturally, with the enormous will of becoming a better version of ourselves, for ourselves.
Our issues, the way we face life and the world around us, always start in us. We are the epicenter of everything, so why shouldn’t we work “in us”, “for us”?
Nature is an essential matter to life and we can only take precious lessons from it.
My relationship with nature is somewhat addictive and no matter the situation I may be going through, more complex or not, my refuge, my shelter, and my extra oxygen bubble is always nature.
That is why, when I started working on the theme of this collection, I was curious to know more about the connection among different plants/flowers and what their properties provoke in the human being.
Plants/Flowers like Chamomile, Lavender, Gardenia, and the Passion Fruit Flower are real gifts from Nature that help to reduce our stress and anxiety levels in our everyday life, when present in our homes, etc. They are promoters of well-being for all of us.
This collection aims to highlight that the practice of mindfulness and the benefit of nurturing references about the mentioned plants/flowers are natural and healthy resources that facilitate the adaptation process to the inherent issues in life. Therefore we must cling to them as something precious and empowering.
Let's make the best of our uniqueness, inner strength, and growth!
