Skincare. Some say it’s all rubbish, others swear by its transcendental powers. The skincare industry is worth billions, its economy booming larger as the years go by. There are hundreds, even thousands, of skincare companies who all promise you that your skin will be improved when you use their products. But making your skincare routine work for you is far more than just buying the most expensive brand you can find, or following what your favourite Instagram influencer tells you.
Shopping for beauty brands can be overwhelming; with so many ingredients, components, routines and brands to choose from, it can become a headache. The truth is, there’s no one thing that works for everyone! Skincare, like everything else, is about personal circumstances. Here are seven easy steps to ensuring your skincare works for you.Continue reading “7 Ways To Make Your Skincare Work For You”
Week One: Always Eat After 7PM- Why I Chose This Diet
As many of you can probably relate, when the gyms and fitness centers temporarily shut down during the pandemic I was unsure about how I was going to stay as active as before. This month would have been my 2 year anniversary of kickboxing. Kickboxing is my favorite workout that I enjoy the most and not being able to go kickboxing has caused irritability, weight gain, and stress. Instead of dwelling on what I can’t control I decided it’s a perfect time to get serious about shedding some excess weight, increasing my energy and just feeling better in general.Continue reading “Why I Chose This Diet- Always Eat After 7PM”

It seems that we cannot switch on the television nowadays without seeing somebody who is or has been at the mercy of their mental health issues. Also, what seems to catch us more off guard is generally we see that the people we least expect are suffering more than we can ever imagine.
Although there is more awareness on social media, film, and television, there is still stigma attached to mental health. We really need to find ways to make it so there is more than can be done for those that suffer.
Today, we are going to be looking at the power of hobbies and why finding one could be the perfect thing to help you out at the times when you struggle the most.Continue reading “Why Finding A Hobby Can Be Great For Your Mental Health”
According to the National Sleep Foundation, good bedtime hygiene is essential to sleeping well at night and waking up feeling refreshed and productive in the morning. For instance, if we drink caffeinated beverages shortly before bedtime, or sleep in a room that’s too hot or too cold, our sleep quality may suffer, and we may spend the next day feeling groggy and unfocused. In some cases, we may struggle to fall asleep at all.
Moreover, Harvard Health Publishing says that sleep quality and mental health go hand in hand. If you’re deprived of sleep, your risk of developing depression, ADHD, generalized anxiety disorder, or another mental disorder may increase. As such, improving your sleep habits is key to boosting your mental health and improving the quality of sleep you get each night. For some budget-friendly tips that will help you to improve your sleep habits while boosting your mental health at the same time, read on!Continue reading “Wellness Wednesday: How to Boost Your Sleep Hygiene for Better Mental Health, Even When You’re on a Budget by Cheryl Conklin”

I wrote about the power of positive daily affirmations in a number of my earlier blog posts such as 23 Strategies To Survive and Stay Positive In a Toxic Work Environment as well as others. And I am sure you may have heard about positive affirmations in other blog posts, articles and social media memes and what-not. Positive affirmations have become popular in recent years because they are effective and there is some science to support this claim as I will talk about a little later.
There are many things to be successful, like I talked about in my post 21 Things To NOT do to be Successful, so affirmations are not the only thing you will need to do on your journey to success and well being, but positive daily affirmations are a vital step you will do well to make part of your daily routine.Continue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Daily Positive Affirmations and Why You Want To Use Them by John Meeks”
