What is the magic of the sea?
The ocean literally brings us together by serving as a channel between countries. It provides us with food and medicine. Scientifically we are tied to the ocean as the human body is made up of ~60% water and requires minerals like sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium all of which can be found in ocean water. I am an advocate for ocean conservation, preserving coral reefs by applying reef safe sunscreens, reducing the use of plastic by investing in reusable and recyclable materials, and supporting companies that value sustainable and reusable energy sources.
Do you resonate with mermaid spirit and how does that look and feel?
Mermaid spirit is curious, confident, and free. It feels like the sun’s rays warming your face, toasty sand between your toes, the smell of sea salt in the air, the sound of crashing waves, seagulls floating in the cool breeze, and the water gliding across your skin like silk, it is all very therapeutic. It looks like buying a reusable water bottle like a Hydroflask, wearing reef-safe sunscreen, and carrying reusable shopping bags.
How do you stay upbeat and positive? Do you have some tips for our mermaid community on staying positive?
Working out the frustration can be helpful, I love a good Kickboxing or Dance session. Gentle exercises like Yoga, Barre, and Pilates can be just as effective–holding each pose or increasing the reps can be just as challenging as a cardio workout. Taking a walk in nature or finding a scenic trail to hike can help clear your mind and give you a new perspective. I use the app Insight Timer for meditation, but I’m more consistent when it comes to journaling. I find these practices to be great ways to center yourself and get out of your head. That being said, some days you just need to get dolled up and remind yourself of who you are.
