Kendall Jenner’s Tips for Living As Her Highest Self Are Pretty Genius

Whether you watch The Kardashians or you’re one of her 261 million IG followers, you know Kendall Jenner is no stranger to the spotlight but also to the wellness scene. IV therapy, cold plunges, meditation sound bowls, and journaling are a few wellness practices she religiously stands by. If that doesn’t convince you of her self-proclaimed health obsession, her state-of-the-art room dedicated to all thing’s wellness will. Complete with a hyperbaric chamber, red light therapy bed, and oxygen therapy machine, it’s every wellness girl’s dream (major envy). Gadgets and gizmos aside, Kendall has open dialogues with the media and on social media about her mental health and struggles with anxiety.

Thanks to her recent interview with Jay Shetty on his podcast, On Purpose with Jay Shetty, we got the 411 on her self-work and steadfast wellness rituals. Read on for how she stays in tune with her highest self. Spoiler alert: They are practices you will not find on Hulu or Instagram, and we can all benefit from them.  

Foster your higher goddess

In Kendall’s work with her therapist, she focuses on living in her higher goddess, AKA her higher self. What does that look like? Words of affirmation, reassuring yourself of who you are, and recognizing everything else is just noise. “Sometimes it feels weird to say good things about yourself, but I’ve also learned a lot about talking to myself and a lot about looking in the mirror and being like, ‘You’re great. You’re gorgeous. You’re amazing. You’re loyal. You’re positive.’”

Admittedly, Kendall falls victim to false narratives. Like us all, she has moments she struggles to stay true to who she is and her purpose. “If your happiness depends on the actions of others, you’re at [the] mercy of things that you can’t control,” she stated. Kendall emphasized holding your happiness and not letting anyone else affect it. If you know yourself and the people important in your life know your true self, nothing else should matter. When Shetty asked Kendall, “What’s something you used to value but you don’t value anymore?” Her answer? Validation. 

Set aside alone time

It’s no secret that Kendall is surrounded by a large family and famous friends (hey, Hailey Bieber) in addition to her entourage. But she told Shetty that since she was a kid, the Scorpio in her enjoyed being by herself. “I went through a phase where I felt like I had to be around people,” shared Kendall. “I think I live a very social life, and my job is very social, so I was kind of conditioned to want to be around people a lot. And then, as the pandemic came around, you’re not around as many people anymore. Now I’m just re-enjoying being by myself, which is cool.”

At the end of the day, Kendall craves a simple routine. Her perfect day consists of riding her horses, taking a cold plunge, laying out, and journaling. Taking a cue from Kendall, give yourself space and step away when needed. Additionally, be comfortable in your own company. Sometimes the best remedy for a bad day is journaling (yes, it bears repeating), taking a solo walk outside, meditating, or picking up a new hobby.

Set boundaries at work 

Let’s face it: We all experience burnout, celeb or not. Kendall expressed there was a long period she was overworked, felt overwhelmed, and said “yes” to every opportunity—to the point where she was unhappy (anyone else relates?). Eventually, she learned to prioritize herself. She realized her well-being was necessary to show up better in her personal and professional life. So, she took a step back in her career to reconnect with her higher self: “I got to that point, and I just knew I had to do it…” Kendall explained. “It was just such an unbelievable sensation that I had where I knew that if I do this, I’m going to be better for everyone. And I’m going to be better for myself, which means I’m going to be better for the people around me.”

Learn to recognize the signs of burnout (think: fatigue, feeling apathetic with your work, changes to your sleep patterns). Then, enforce work-life boundaries to care for your mental health and restore a healthy balance. Maybe that means being upfront and communicating with your boss or taking time off. Or, it’s just saying “no” to taking on more projects or a meeting invite scheduled during your lunch break. Ultimately, your mental and physical health should be your number one priority (I know that’s sometimes easier said than done).

Stay grounded in your relationships 

When it comes to her family and friends, Kendall told Shetty that honesty and communication are her core values in maintaining healthy relationships. “I find it important to not feel like you’re on top of each other when you have your family around or your friends around,” she said. “It’s OK to sometimes, even if you’re at a family dinner, run to the bathroom and just being like, ‘Let me just take a couple of breaths because this is getting overwhelming.’” 

Kendall shared that she’s prone to anxiety and can take things too seriously. When she feels inundated with family circumstances or stress, she recognizes her feelings: “I’m allowed to feel this way; it’s valid. I’m just going to take a deep breath, and I’m not going to react, and then I’m going to go back out there, and I’m going to be fine.” Try being in Kendall’s shoes (wouldn’t that be fun?) and pause whenever you feel overwhelmed. Give yourself a safe space to express your feelings through journaling, speaking to a mental health professional, or practicing deep breathing.

Nurture your inner child

After coming across a viral TikTok trend encouraging viewers to stop negative self-talk by picturing their younger selves, Kendall’s therapist suggested she put a spin on it and find a photo of herself as a child to put on her bathroom mirror. Take a glance at her Instagram, and you’ll see the Polaroid of young Kendall. It serves as a daily reminder that anything negative that she says about herself, she’s saying to that beaming, hair bow-wearing younger version of herself. “If I’m ever looking in the mirror and being negative toward myself, I always look right over to her, and I’m like, ‘She’s dope, and I love her,’” Kendall laughed.

Bottom line: Practice self-love and find tactics that work for you. If you’re not sure where to start, try exercising mindfulness, putting yourself and your needs first, or simply making yourself a healthy meal. Regardless of your method, keep being kind to yourself, just as you would your 5-year-old self or BFF.

TIPS FOR CHOOSING YOUR SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE

You are unique. You can search the whole world and not find another you. As the saying goes, “Be yourself; everyone else is taken.” Therefore, your fragrance should also be unique. A signature scent leaves an impression on people, so they remember you long after leaving the room.

So, how do you choose your signature fragrance? Keep reading to find out.

What to Consider When Choosing Your Scent

A signature fragrance is personal – it should reflect your individuality and make you feel confident. Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding which fragrance best represents you:

Advertisements

Scent families

Fragrances are generally grouped into families based on their predominant scent notes. Floral scents, for example, tend to be soft and feminine, while musky scents are more intense and masculine. Consider what kind of scent you generally prefer before narrowing down your options.

Longevity

You’ll want to choose a fragrance that has good longevity and lasts throughout the day without being too overwhelming. Eau de parfum typically has the longest-lasting scent, followed by eau de toilette.

Application

Fragrances can be applied directly to the skin or sprayed on clothing. If you choose to apply it directly to your skin, consider where you’ll be applying it – pulse points like the wrists and neck tend to work best. 

How to Find the Right Scent For YOU

Consider your personality. Are you outgoing and bold, or are you an introvert that enjoys a low-key get-together with friends? Do you think of yourself as athletic and sporty, or prefer quiet activities such as reading or knitting? Do you enjoy being out in nature or being in a comfy chair in your living room playing video games? Is your ideal night out going to a nightclub or sitting around a fire?

Next, think about the types of fragrances that you typically enjoy.

Do you prefer light and airy scents or rich and heady ones? Fruity or floral? Spicy or woodsy? Once you’ve decided on the general type of scent you’re looking for, you can start exploring some of the most popular fragrance notes. Floral aromas often contain rose, jasmine, or tuberose notes, while fruity scents might include citrus, berries, or melon. Spicy scents typically feature notes of pepper, cardamom, or cloves, and woodsy scents often include cedarwood, sandalwood, or vetiver. 

Don’t forget to take into account the season and weather. You’ll want to steer clear of anything too heavy or spicy if it’s hot, as these can be overwhelming in warm weather. Conversely, a light and airy scent might not be noticeable enough if it’s cold out.

How to Apply Perfume for Maximum Effect

When applying perfume, remember that less is more. Start with a small amount and add more if necessary. Apply it to pulse points such as your wrists, behind your ears, and in the crook of your elbow. These areas generate body heat, which will help to release the fragrance.

Avoid rubbing your wrists together after applying perfume, as this will break down the molecules and alter the scent. Finally, give your perfume a chance to settle before you make a final judgment – it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours for the full fragrance to develop depending on the scents.

The Best Fragrances for Men and Women

When it comes to fragrances, some are better suited for men, and others are better suited for women. This is often due to the different scents that men and women find appealing. For example, men prefer bolder, more intense smells, while women usually prefer lighter, more delicate aromas. 

Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule, and ultimately it is up to each individual to decide what smells best on them. After all, it’s important to find a scent that makes you feel confident and comfortable – something that feels like an extension of your style. After all, perfume is all about expressing your unique personality.

Perfume, the essential of the morning routine!

Happy Friday! Can’t believe we’re almost done with 2022 already. We are hoping things slow down a bit so we can enjoy more of the year 2022!

Putting on fragrance is part of our morning routine. Even when we never left the house during quarantine. haha, we were super excited to try out Dossier fragrances. They are inspired by luxury designer scents but have a much more affordable price point.

We decided to try one inspired by Marc Jacobs’ Daisy, called FLORAL VIOLET. We still had some in a sample-size bottle of Daisy so we could compare the two. We put a spritz on each wrist. In the bottle, they smell different but once they dry on your skin, they smell identical.

It’s somehow both creamy and powdery at the same time, sweet without being too sweet, and simply gorgeous. This is perfect for any teenager; the scent isn’t too strong and isn’t too mature for the young ones. It’s a beautiful vanilla/violet that doesn’t overload the senses. It’s somehow both creamy and powdery at the same time, sweet without being too sweet, and simply gorgeous.

The other perfume we tried is the CITRUS GREEN APPLE, inspired by D&G’s Light Blue. We haven’t had it in a few years, but it smells exactly how we remember the D&G’s Light Blue in the bottle and on. This scent reminds you of summer in Italy or Spain all year long. The scent is fresh, airy, and sweet and you automatically smell the citrus. It is many people’s faves.
