Balancing The Mind and Body || Wellness Please

In recent months, I started to use the words WELLNESS instead of HEALTHY. Because I realized that wellness has a wider range to cover in our lives.

WHAT IS WELLNESS?

“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. It is more than being free from illness. It is a dynamic process of change and growth. A good or satisfactory condition of existence, a state characterized by health, happiness, prosperity, and welfare.

I have been on my wellness journey for a while. Below are the things I do to keep myself balanced with my mind and body.

Taking Care of My Mind

Every morning I listen to inspirational videos on YouTube while I am getting ready for the day. So far I love a few channels. The first one is Lisa Nichols. She has some incredible stories about how she turned her life around. Now she is helping millions to do the same. Since I am on the path to becoming a public speaker, she is also my idol and I have learned so much from her. I am also a big fan of A-Fest by Mindvalley. They have so many amazing speakers, and they cover so many aspects of life. The next one is Tom Bilyeu. His Impact Theory interviews have truly opened my mind and I often ask myself, “What impact do I want to have to the world?” Before bed, I listen to spiritual speeches on YouTube as well. I pretty much watched everything that I can find about Oprah Winfrey. I am so obsessed with her, LOL! I hope someday I will have her powerful mind and make more positive differences in this world. I, also, have listened to Wayne Dyer Channel for months. It is kind of interesting because his major philosophy is Taoism, which was from China a thousand years ago. I found his use of Taoism even better than our Chinese. LOL. One more interesting fact: he was from Detroit, Michigan! Okay, the last one is Marisa Peer, named Best British Therapist. I love the way she makes how the brain works easy to understand. Her case studies give me the encouragement to revisit my past and figure out how to heal myself. Other than listening to those great minds, I do yoga at least once a week and just to quiet my mind. What do you do to take care of your mind?

Take Care of My Body

I have been going to the gym for more than a year, and it has become my lifestyle. When I have a long and stressful day, those high-intensity workouts give a place to let me empty my mind and flush out all the stress with my sweat. I have talked about my favorite gym Area45 Fitness a few times. You can read THE FUTURE OF FITNESS || HAVING FUN TONING YOUR BODY WITH AREA 45 FITNESS and LIFE AFTER LOSS || HOW FITNESS HELPED ME COPE for more details.

Other than the gym, I eat healthily. You can read LIFE AFTER LOSS COOKING FOR MYSELF and the recent post PLATEJOY || CUSTOMIZED MEAL PLANNING MAKING LIFE EASIER. I always believe you are what you eat.

Now on that note, I do take supplements as well. Recently I have taken this Wellness Please – Multi-Collagen for a few weeks now. Collagen is a glow-getting protein that makes up 40% of the protein in our bodies, but by our early 30s, we start to lose the natural collagen in our bodies. When you add multi-collagen peptides to your diet, it allows you to fill the gaps in your daily nutrition. This all-in-one formula is only 30 calories per serving and allows you to boost your overall health. This special formula is flavorless and odorless — with 7 grams of protein, I just simply add it to my coffee or tea every morning!

Here are more details about this product:

CONCENTRATED MULTI-COLLAGEN: This gluten-free, keto-friendly protein powder includes a high-quality blend of cage-free-chicken, grass-fed bovine, marine collagen, eggshell + bone broth.

SUPPORTS MUSCLES, BONES + JOINTS: Preserves lean muscle, boosts energy + cuts recovery time after workouts. Multi-collagen powder reduces joint pain, keeps arteries flexible + improves circulation. I do notice that my knees are not that stiff as normal. As well as the recovery time after workouts. One day I did two high-intensity workout classes in a row, but I didn’t feel much afterward.

SKIN + HAIR: With age, collagen production slows and skin loses its smooth appearance. This protein powder aids hair + nail growth + reduces hair loss. Collagen peptides may hydrate the skin by up to 12%, smoothing lines. I can’t tell you if it’s helping my skin or nail yet. But my cleaning lady told me that she has taken this same product for a long time and she saw the results.

First The Pain, Then The Raising ||Living Life on Rapid

I have partnered with Neutrogena for this post!

First The Pain, Then The Raising ||Living Life on Rapid

I am a woman who wears many hats, I am a girl boss, blogger, stylist, globetrotter, widow, step-mother, grandmother, immigrant, dream chaser, self-empower advocator and motivational speaker. I am living in my dream life now. If you have been following me for a while, you will know this journey hasn’t been easy for me.

For those who aren’t familiar, I would like to take the time to tell you more about my journey and how I ended up embracing the living life on rapid lifestyle…

Sixteen month ago, when my late husband passed away, I was broken and felt my whole world was shattered. After everyone who came to sympathize with me was gone, and I was all by myself in the house, I couldn’t even stand opening my eyes. When I did, my late husband was everywhere I look, and I was in so much pain that I felt I could, or I would rather just drop dead any moment. From living a fulfilled and happy life with a soul mate for 10 years to the new reality of being alone; that was the hardest part. But just like every wise person says, “Everything bad has something good”. The good that has come out of losing my man is the time and effort I was forced to put on myself to figure out who I really am and what I really want and to truly practice self-care for myself. The last few months were the passage from survival stage to fulfilled living stage for me. From that moment of my self-realization, my life has been moving at a rapid and steady pace to achieve even bigger dreams.

I want to update you on what my life is like now. I quit my teaching job and became a full-time influencer, a girl boss. I have been able to travel to many fascinating places by myself, which have been on my bucket list for so long. It was a life changing experience and breakthrough moment for me; I finally figured out what my life purpose is. My life purpose is to serve and to give, by sharing my stories. Other than this blog and my social media, I also plan to write a book about my Living with Cancer and Life After Loss journey this year. I am working on becoming a public speaker so I can share my stories on different platforms where people can learn from them, let go of the pain they hold onto and live their lives with fulfillment. My final goal is, to build a foundation to help all the people and family that are affected because they lost a loved one. They will have a case manager who will follow them for five years. They can get free service of grief consulting and job training to help them get back to their lives again. I am working hard to make these goals into a reality.

Now, after hearing more about my journey, you can understand how my day can be super crazy with all those projects, activities and events and why self-care and giving back to myself is so important. As a self-made public figure, I need a skincare routine that can keep up with all different aspects of my life and make sure I am always looking my best, and camera-ready. Rapid Winkle Repair collection from Neutrogena has been the fast and effective solution that I can depend on to my skincare needs. Among this whole collection, I REALLY love two of them.

The first one is Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF. I have said this several times on my blog and social media; the foundation of anti-wrinkle is to avoid sun damage. I use sun block daily and year round. This cream has been my new favorite because it improves the fine lines I currently have around my eyes as well as helps to prevent new lines from forming. This is a great daytime moisturizer you will fall in love with as it is lightweight and not greasy. It is so light that I can wear it under my makeup and still remain protected. My skin glows and looks smoother after using it daily for a week. Remember, the earlier you start and keep using SPF products, the longer it will take for those wrinkles to form.

The second product that I really love is the Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Regenerating Cream, Fragrance-Free. I use this one as my cream at night after I had showered. The skin absorbs it easily and its impact of making my skin soft is felt. After one week of using this, I have noticed some improvement on my skin. It diminishes fine lines and visible firmer skin already! So many over-the-counter products make me break out but not this; which is an added bonus for sure. So far, I am very pleased, and I think the price point is great. I have tried so many brands that are costlier, but the results I get are not different. Why wouldn’t I go for the easily affordable one when they work the same way and achieve same results? I am so happy I found those effective and affordable products!
