Achieving your goals

If there is something that you want to achieve, there’s nothing more important than making your goals as visible and tangible as possible. 

How do I make my goals visible and work towards them?

I tell my husband. Sometimes telling people things that you want to do will psychologically make you more motivated or at least obligated to achieve them. Hence, you’ll do everything in your power to make sure you do the necessary to achieve your goals.

On my wall. I write down my aim for the month and paste them on my wall. Seeing is believing.

Make sure I am in the right mood whenever I’m doing what I’m supposed to. This is more difficult to be done actually, but it won’t be as hard if you have that one special ingredient: B-complex!

But no, serious though, B-complex keeps your emotions in check. Try it, feel it and enjoy it.

How do you make sure your goals are met?

Still active!

Hey there everybody!

After a veeery long break, I am back. 

Back to my blog, my canvas and my future. 

So keep a lookout! There’ll be more posts about me and my partner in crime, Shaklee.

Vitamins to get back your period cycle

There are many reasons why your period may come at irregular times. Most cases its because of obesity, hormonal imbalance and stress.

And most of the time, the reason why you have all the above is because of your lifestyle. Maybe you lack exercise or maybe you've been living off of an unhealthy diet which causes parasites to 'hang around' in your body.

These parasites that stays in your body will take the nutrients from the food that you eat and this will cause other health and hormonal issues, which will then lead to irregular period. 

If you want your period to become regular again, these parasites need to be gone. 

How do you get rid of these parasites?

One way to do it (without taking hormonal pills) is by detoxing your body i.e. by changing your lifestyle and diet. 
a, You've got to be active. Possibly by going for a jog at least 30 minutes a day.
b, Avoid 4 food that invites parasites. These 4 are white sugar, white bread, any food that is based on white flour and caffeinated drinks such as tea and white coffee.
c, Get rid of the parasites by taking natural detoxing products - Shaklee's detoxing supplement, consistently.

For your information, any form of detoxing is the most natural way to eliminate parasites from your body. 

Shaklee's detox set
Shaklee's detox set comprises of 5 important detoxing vitamins.

If you keep being active, pay attention to your diet and consistently take the vitamins from Shaklee's detoxing set, in shaa Allah, you'll see the different in the upcoming month. 

It is definitely worth it.

1. Vivix helps to detox our cells. It helps by giving energy to our cells so that they are able to detox more effectively.

2. Peppermint Ginger helps us to let out unnecessary gas in our body thus accelerating the repairing process of our period cycle.

3. DTX complex detoxes our liver. Our liver needs to maintain strong and needs to be cleaned because it is the place where the body usually dispose of the toxins and parasites.

4. Herblax detoxes our intestines. Intestines is usually where the parasites would 'hang out' because this is where the nutrients from our food is absorbed. Hence the more parasites your have in your intestines, the less likely you'll get the nutrients from the food you eat. These parasites need to go.

5. Alfalfa Complex. Whats good about Alfalfa is that it will detox every other part of your body. If you have parasites hanging around somewhere that is not the usual place, Alfalfa will help you to detox them.

Tips to have a calm soul

Did you know that one reason that could cause all that is because your body and your brain lacks nutrients?

Yes, its true. 

Read on and you'll see how these nutrients can help make you feel more at peace and calm. 

1. The B-vitamins 
Vitamin B such as acid folic builds new brain cells  and acts as a serotonin. 

Some short facts about serotonin:
- Serotonin is a chemical that carries the signals along and between your nerves. Your brain is one of the three organs that serotonin is mainly found in. 
- Serotonin transmit impulses between nerve cells, regulates cyclic body processes and contributes to wellbeing and happiness.
- Serotonin is regarded by some researchers as a chemical that is responsible for maintaining mood balance and a deficit of serotonin leads to depression.

2. Omega-3
Omega-3 makes up 18% of our brain weight. Hence, lack of Omega-3 in your brain can cause a huge impact to your mood, affects your ability to control stress and may also cause memory-loss.

A twenty-year study involving 3,317 men and women found that people with the highest consumption of EPA and DHA (found in Omega-3) were less likely to have mood challenges. 

3. Vitamin D
We usually hear that vitamin D is good for your bones, or for the optimal absorption of calcium. But actually, vitamin D is also very much needed by your brain to function well. 

It plays a critical role in cognitive functions, including learning and making memories. Those with lower vitamin D have exhibited slower information-processing speed. 

But when it comes to being happy, scientific evidence has shown that with higher levels of vitamin D, you would be more likely to feel happy rather than blue.  

4. Amino Acid
Insufficient amino acid can make someone temperamental, unable to control their feelings, lack motivation and depression. Period. 

So now comes the question, how do you ensure that you get enough of the above nutrients in your body? 

For those of you who have the time, you might want to look into your diet and make changes to your food intake so that you'll get the nutrients needed.

But if you're like me, who barely gets to shower for more than 10 minutes without being called or needed by your kids, I suggest you take supplements. 

Shaklee has the complete set of products that you need: 

There's B-complex which will get you all the B vitamins. 

There's OmegaGuard which gives you the among the best Omega-3 fish oil that you can get.

Shaklee has Ostematrix which will provide you with vitamin D. 

And last but not least, y
ou can take ESP (Energising Soy Protein) to get your complete amino acids.

At the end of the day, it is your choice whether you want to change the way you've been feeling. I applaud you though for reading up to this end because it shows you that you do want to change.

If you want to get your supplements from Shaklee, you can give me a call and I'll get you what you need.

Bonding activities with your kids before putting them to bed

We have a routine that we usually stick with. 

We normally reach home about 7.45pm at night on a weekday - on average. That, in truth, already limits the amount of time you get to spend with your kids since you still have to prepare dinner, eat, pray and what not before they have to go to bed.

Sometimes, it feels like most of the time that you do get to spend with them is just you taking care of them. Getting them to eat, getting them to shower, getting them to clean up their toys. 

What can we do then, to actually spend some time with our kids on a normal day-to-day basis and bond with them? We cant just parent them all the time. Spending some time with them helps with their development too.

So here's my take. This is what we normally do or hope to do with our little family:

1. When we eat, we eat together. Eating as a family build and strengthen your family bond. I kid you not. Living proof of those who do and do not eat together exists. I see them with my own eyes.

2. When they play, spend perhaps just 10-15 minutes and play with them. If you cant, at least ask your spouse to do so while you do the chores. The roles can be reversed on a different day.

3. The third one may be a controversial one to some.

It is a routine for us that my son gets to watch his cartoon after dinner. So we let him watch about 40 minutes worth of cartoons. He gets to choose from only a few types of cartoons that we allow i.e. only those that are age-appropriate for him.

Most of the time my husband would sit with him and watch the cartoon together. How we bond through this is by asking him to tell us about the story after that. What happened? Why he did that? Is it good or bad? What did you like about the episode? So on and so forth. From the questions, we talked, we get to understand what he actually understands, we get to know our son bit by bit too.

4. I'd love to have this activity before bed. But it is still work in progress.

I imagined that when the kids are in bed, we would be there to read them a bedtime story. Or better yet, create a whole new story together! Its fun and it helps your kids imagination grow too. That's what my father usually do for me and my sisters. I think thats why all four of us have wild imagination. 

5. Last but not least, we recite doa to go to sleep, together. At the end of the day, we should give thanks to God for the good that happened and learn from the bad.

Buuuuuutttttt.....there are days when this happened instead:
In my defense, we're only humans! Haha. 

Honestly though, we try our best to do spend time with our kids as much as possible.

The above list are the ones that we have made for ourselves. I'd love to hear your suggestions if you have any to share. Let me know at the comments below!

Products to get rid of acne

How I wish it is as simple as taking off a post-it note of pimples and acnes off your face. 

Pimples and acne has always been a sensitive issue. 

Especially for those with fair skin, it'd be so obvious if you have red spots all over your face. You are already so conscious of how you look, you really do not want to think about those new ones thats about to come out and itches all the time. 

But then, to try any new facial products can be quite a scary step. You may never know which one will actually ruin your skin.

It is quite understandable though for us to be extra cautious. There are lots of different products offered out there and we dont know how true is what they claim. For sure we dont want to have to suffer 3 to 6 months down the road just because we want a smooth and silky skin today.

So what then?

Allow me to suggest to you Shaklee's products that will get rid of your pimples and acne. (No, these are not facial products - its even better)

What's so different about Shaklee's product is that each and every ingredient used in making the products has gone through at least 350 filters of chemical pollution and other tests.

Shaklee has always proud themselves in offering products that are always clean, safe and effective.

So much so that even the doctors and scientists that has nothing to do with Shaklee has acknowledged the effectiveness of Shaklee's products. This is through the Landmark Study that was published internationally. 

So what are the products that you can take to get rid of your pimples and acnes? There are four main ones.

VIVIX has resveratrol that repairs the skin at the cellular level and helps neutralises toxins that causes pimples and acnes.

ALFALFA functions as a detoxing agent that cleanse your body from toxins that also causes pimples and acnes.

COLLAGEN reduces the size of your pores so that dirt from the air does not get easily trapped and mixes with your natural face oil that would lead to pimples and acnes.

VITAMIN C controls the creation of your natural face oil while at the same time balances your face's pH level.

Apart from the four mentioned above, I personally prefer to add Energising Soy Protein (ESP) as one of the products that helps maintain your skin health. ESP helps with the creation of healthy new cells (which by the way dies every other month).

If you want to buy or if you are interested to know more, do give me a call. It's your first step to having a better skin.

The name is Ili Syazana.
The number is 010-366 3173.

I can also sign you up immediately to become a member of Shaklee so that you can enjoy up to 20% discount on all products!
