Living Well the Incoming Year

We are on the threshold of a brand new year!

While there may be new dreams that can be fulfilled in 2018, there could also be challenges we might have to face. I think there are 3 major things that can help us not only hurdle the new year but to enjoy it as well:

Strong Relationships. We are social creatures and having strong relationships can help us both to cope with life as well as enjoy it. According to Gwendolyn Seidman, Ph.D in an article in Psychology Today: “Many studies have demonstrated that solid relationships are associated with better health and longer life.” A thriving and stronger version of us in 2018 means having good, solid relationships.

Sound Health. Too often we may forget that we need to keep healthy bodies, minds and spirits to live well. We need to make sure that we are taking care of our health. Enough sleep and rest, eating well and in moderation — these are but a couple of reminders to keep a healthy body. Our mental and spiritual health must not also be forgotten. I personally think that our inner and outer health has to somehow match so that we are at our best in living out life.

Looking Good and Sharp. How we project and carry ourselves do matter. While inner beauty is important, we should also be mindful of how we look. I have a friend who is not only brilliant and talented but also beautiful. Unfortunately, her confidence is extremely low. You see, she is so self-conscious of her large breasts. Not only that, she also has to bear what could be unnecessary pain because of her condition. There are other women out there who suffer her predicament but are unfortunately afraid to consider breast surgery.

The good news is that there is now the Bellesoma Method. It is a surgical procedure based on engineering and mathematical principles to lift or reduce the breast. It also needs to be said that it is unlike traditional methods that primarily use skin tightening to create lift. The Bellesoma Method (initially known as the Horndeski Method) has been performed since 2000. Over 500 women from different parts of the world have gone through it and would attest that it is the best method for breast lifts and breast reductions in practice today.

Let’s face 2018 with strong relationships and sound health and let’s not forget to look good and sharp, to simply look our best.

Reminder: Never Let Lose a Strand of Your Patience

It’s always a good reminder to never lose our patience.

Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.

Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.

  • Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.
  • Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
  • Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
  • Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.

Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.

Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.

Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.

Tip 2:  Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.

Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.  

Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.

Made for More Than Ordinary Lives

While I agree that we need to be able to embrace contentment with what we have, I think there also needs to be a balance. What I mean is we should not just settle for a day-to-day mundane, meaningless existence.

Yes, let there be contentment but let there also be purpose 🙂  Let us live each day with meaning, with hopes and dreams.

I think that as we find and embrace the meaning and purpose of our lives, going through the challenging seasons of our lives easier becomes a bit easier. We see a deeper purpose for any of our pains as well as our joys. And I think we are encouraged to live healthier in body, soul and spirit because we know we need whatever resources we have to fulfill our life’s purpose.

This is one song I’ve been listening lately which reminds me that we are made for more than ordinary lives – we are made not just to survive. I hope you get inspired as you listen to the song.
