We could all take a page out of Poppy Jamie‘s new book. The British podcast host and young entrepreneur (she’s the co-founder of accessories brand Pop and Suki, with Suki Waterhouse) is slowly making a name for herself for increasing mental wellbeing awareness with her modern, 360 degree approach to mental health and the latest step is her new book advocating ‘flexible thinking’.
Entitled ‘Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety‘, it will take you on a journey, revealing how to release the past and upgrade your thinking. “The book will help stretch your thoughts by turning challenges into gifts through the power of curiosity, choice and compassion.on a mission to democratise conversation and tools for emotional and mental health.”
Even before the pandemic brought on a wave of stress and anxiety, there was already a growing mental health crisis. Behind her Instagram-projected image of “happy wellness founder,” Poppy Jamie was also struggling with perfectionism and life purpose.
As founder of the award winning Happy Not Perfect mindset app and host of the Not Perfect podcast, she began working with mental health experts to find practical tools to overcome her inner critic and ‘rewire’ her mind. She discovered that it is possible to create new neural pathways in your brain to break patterns of avoidance, challenge fears of not being good enough, and turn failure around by stretching the mind with new, healthier thought habits. The old wiring (and habits) that you’ve been stuck with can be written-over. You can actually upgrade your headspace to make curiosity, vulnerability, compassion, and emotional flexibility your default settings.
The perfect accompaniment to reading it, is Erno Laszlo‘s iconic Vitality Mask. The treatment allows you to indulge in a little alchemy in your bathroom. It is powered by a triple mineral powder blend which you activate with a serum lotion. When combined, the formula becomes an active treatment mask that creates a rubbery texture to be peeled off. After one application your skin will appear brighter, plumper, smoother and more even-toned!
As you delve into Poppy’s book, the peel-off face mask goes to work to replenish moisture while cooling and calming skin. Infused with natural hydrators and a cocktail of beneficial ingredients, including ProVitamin B5, Comfrey Root and Zinc Extract, the plumping mask delivers long-lasting moisture, whilst refreshing the complexion and minimising the appearance of fine lines.
It also delivers antioxidant properties to defend against the damaging effects of UV rays and harmful pollutants. While you work on your soul, it works on your skin leaving it with a youthful radiance.
