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. Continue reading
When it comes to our health, we think of a small list of items. We think of weight and fitness, primarily, alongside medical conditions, or a lack thereof. However, health is more nuanced than that, and the perfect example is that of mental health. Mental health is not even always recognized as a genuine health concern. Mental illnesses are often mocked and dismissed instead of treated. Many who suffer from a mental illness may never get diagnosed or treated simply because of the stigma that has been placed upon their condition and others like it. However, the good news is that, in such a case, there are ways to alleviate the symptoms of a mental illness like depression or general anxiety disorder that anyone can do. Here are some suggestions.
First and foremost, take some time out of your day from time to time to simply relax. We as a society don’t relax often enough, and that may be, in and of itself, a contributing factor in the rise of mental illnesses. Taking some time to relax can do wonders for your mood when you’re having a hard time, so take a nice, hot bath to melt your troubles away. However, if relaxing for you is excitement, why not grab a ticket from StubHub and go see the new movie everyone’s talking about. Taking time for yourself, whatever that means, is important for stabilizing your mood, mental illness or not.
Another, somewhat surprising, way to alleviate anxiety and depression is to just go for a walk. The change in scenery and light exercise of taking a walk is known to alleviate these conditions and provide a boost to creativity, so it helps clear your mind and make you feel at ease. Lastly, try to avoid undue stress. Stress is an inevitable part of life, I’m afraid, but much of it can be avoided, and it should be. You don’t need to give your illness any more ammunition than you have to.

The love month doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. The love month should remind us about everything and everyone we love.
Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well.
Take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it. Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.
- Observe good hygiene all the time ~ regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes
- Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair ~ your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.
- Use towel to dry off your hair after shower ~ Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.
- Eat the proper nutrition ~ Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.
- Have enough sleep ~ Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.
- Pamper your hair ~ Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs.
