At Naked Eco we create Sustainable Products for Sustainable Minds.
In an eco-friendly nutshell, that means, that along with small group workshops, retreats and online courses in maintaining a healthy mind, we create bamboo utensils which are engraved with positive affirmations – to help you sustain that healthy mind and say no to single use plastic!
We all need reminding to be positive. The people with the healthiest minds approach life with a positive mindset. That doesn’t happen all by itself. You’re not depressed. You don’t suffer diagnosed anxiety. You don’t have huge problems and you want to keep it that way. That doesn’t happen all by itself. In this day and age it’s hard to keep that balance of a busy life and a peaceful mind, a sumptuous menu and a healthy waistline, a life of convenience versus a sustainable, eco friendly future. You might not be into meditation. You might not do yoga and maybe you couldn’t give a rats about keeping a journal of your feelings, but you know you can always do more to keep your mind healthy and you know it’s up to you. At the same time you’re probably not a greenie but you definitely care about our planet and want to do your bit for our precious environment. You know that this involves less plastic and more sustainable alternatives.
If that’s the case, then you’re probably just like me. I’m Tonia and as the founder of Naked Eco I know that our mental health is a delicate balance of so many different areas of our life. I know without a doubt that surrounding ourselves with positivity and simple affirmations can make a huge difference to the way we approach everyday living. As a Counsellor, specialising in helping women through their emotional challenges, I’ve seen first-hand, the impact that affirmations have on the mind.
Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. Daily affirmations are to the mind what exercise is to the body. Repeating affirmations helps to reprogram our unconscious mind for success.
Putting our affirmations onto everyday products means that you’re regularly exposed to them. Every time you pick up your cutlery you’re reminded – I am Strong or I am Loved. You read it to yourself and say it in your mind. Even if you doubt that it’s true, when you aim to believe it and continue to repeat the affirmations, with time, your unconscious mind will catch up and you’ll have re-programmed your mindset from negative to positive…..
… and this is where Naked comes into it. A healthy mind is stripped of negativity, it’s devoid of darkness and depression and there’s no masks or disguised feelings. A naked mind is pure, authentic and unpolluted, just as it was when we were born, before life got complicated and our feelings were hurt. Before we worried too much or stressed about life in general. In the same way our Naked Eco products are naked too. There’s no chemicals, no mass production, no dangerous impact on the environment and definitely no plastic. And my favourite part; Bamboo is so sustainable that when it’s harvested, as long as the root of the plant isn’t damaged, it re-grows all by itself. It heals itself and starts growing again, just like we can with the power of positivity. How cool is that?
I thought long and hard about how I could combine my passion for healthy minds with a longing to do my bit for the environment. I hope you agree that Naked Eco and our products and services stand out from the crowd by helping you nourish your body, care for your mind AND the environment.
