5 Reasons to Consider Empowerment Jewelry this Women’s History Month
March is Women’s History Month. It’s a month that puts the spotlight on the trials and tribulations that women have overcome throughout history. The list of things women have endured and struggled through is long and distinguished, but the battle is far from over. Many women are still waging battles if only within themselves, working to overcome trauma, setbacks, stressful situations, and barriers that must be hurdled to reach their full potential. One boutique jewelry designer focuses on empowerment jewelry to help every woman who wears it to believe, have hope, and stay determined.
“We all get caught up in what others think and say about us and what we can achieve,” says Catherine “Katia” Rudnick, owner and jewelry designer at Katia Designs. “But the most important thing is believing in yourself and pushing past all that outside noise so that you can be and achieve anything you want. I hope my jewelry plays a small part in helping women to do just that.”
Former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once said, “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” The line of empowerment jewelry by Katia Designs is meant to help other women. Some of the positive and uplifting messages on the pieces in the lineup include “remember who you are,”“perfectly imperfect,”“just breathe,”“my thoughts create my reality,”“anything is possible,”“fearless,”“I am strong,”“today I welcome miracles,”“what you seek is seeking you,” and many others.
The dictionary describes empowerment as power given to someone to do something and the process of becoming stronger, more confident, and especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. The empowerment messages focus on healing, goal-oriented, uplifting, and positivity. They serve as a reminder to the person wearing them that they are enough, can reach their goals, and to believe in themselves. Looking down and seeing one of those positive messages may be all it takes to keep the wearer focused and feeling positive and hopeful.
Here are 5 reasons to consider empowerment jewelry, whether as a gift for someone else or a gift for oneself:
- Empowering women helps them maintain better mental health and happiness. When this happens, it leads to better things for their family, friends, and community.
- When women feel empowered, they can better reach their full potential, whatever that may be. They will feel more fulfilled and in better control over their life.
- Empowered women feel more able to achieve equality and strengthen women’s rights. This then leads to economic growth personally and in their community.
- Empowerment changes people, one person at a time, and as each person changes for the better, they can impact those around them. Positive changes in the world start with the individual.
“The things we say to ourselves daily help to create our reality,” added Rudnick. “It’s easy for people to get off track and start saying mean things to themselves. Empowerment jewelry helps keep them on track, staying focused on being positive and uplifting. That makes a huge difference in oneself and the world.”
An empowered mindset also helps women to be healthier. According to Mayo Clinic, positive thinking helps with stress management, increases life span, lowers rates of depression, increases resilience to illnesses, provides better psychological well-being, improves cardiovascular health, reduces risks of death from cancer, and much more. They report that positive thinking often starts with self-talk, which focuses on thinking positive things and replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. Empowerment jewelry plays a role in helping people to maintain a positive mindset.
