Balance. In the world we live in today, balance is often hard to find. In the US, stress levels are already out of control. And according to the results of a recent survey by the American Psychological Association, they are continuing to rise rapidly. The American Institute of Stress reports, “According to the poll, the stress and mental health statistics of US are worsening, mostly due to reasons such as COVID-19 pandemic, rising inflation, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis.” But when I feel my blood pressure begin to skyrocket, I take a deep breath and remind myself that everyone has challenges in their lives… and this too shall pass. And as a visual reminder that there are better days ahead, I wear a Lokai Bracelet.
The name Lokai was inspired by the Hawaiian word Lokahi meaning unity and to blend opposites. Lokai is a unique pursuit to find balance.
Founder and CEO, Steven Izen explains, “This idea for Lokai came to me when my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. His diagnosis made me think about the highs and lows that everyone experiences. I wanted to make a product for myself and others as a reminder to stay humble through the highs and hopeful through the lows.”
The classic Lokai bracelet is infused with elements sourced from the highest and lowest points on Earth. The white silicone bead, carrying water from Mt. Everest, and the black silicone bead, holding mud from the Dead Sea, exist on opposite ends. A string of clear beads link the two, signifying that throughout life’s circular journey, you choose your path.
- Clear Beads: Keep moving! The clear beads remind us that clarity is necessary, both in times of joy and of sadness.
- Black Bead: Stay hopeful! Sitting directly opposite its white counterpart, the black bead holds mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, signifying the difficult moments all of us experience throughout life.
- White Bead: Stay humble! Carrying water from Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth, the white bead represents life’s highest moments and achievements.
To reinforce their positive message, 10% of net profits of all Lokai Bracelet sales are dedicated to giving back to the community through a variety of charitable partners.
In addition to the classic Lokai bracelet, there are many specialty bracelets available including variations that celebrate causes, as well as host of “fan” options from Stranger Things, to Disney Lokai, to Marvel and more. There are gorgeous stone and metal Lokai (I especially love the pink quartz, black onyx, and lapis lazuli). And there are even Lokai Charms in sterling silver, which easily and securely clamp on to any of the silicone bracelets.
