My Relaxation Moment Creation

I love to create my peace and find relaxation time doing what I love, from time to time. This is essential for our mental health.
What I find so therapeutic recently is scents, I indulge and revel in certain scents that resonates with me and brings good memories.
So, I went on a scent or fragrance search in my local stores, to find which appeals to me at the point in time and found a really good one, it’s eucalyptus mint and a zesty zing with it and from research I found mint scents keeps away pests, so I was done searching for now.
I created my peaceful and quiet space with my scent, and my favourite gospel music, and I designed it to my pleasure (Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand – Stevie Wonder). I can relax in my lovey space to read my inspirational or watch comedies or just enjoy a quiet moment and praise God in my heart.
Take a moment to relax and do what you love and enjoy, this is therapeutic and it helps the mental state. Comment below if you like this post and share how you unwind and relax 👍🏽💕

Skincare routine

Loving your skin

I got into so many commitments and some of them were unplanned. Whenever I find an opportunity that looks promising, another juicier one presents itself and I tend to feel like it’s an opportunity that should not be missed. I then end up picking it up and juggling several things together only to find that I have not got enough time and effort to make any of them work. If this resonates with you, we are on the same page. I’ve decided now though, to focus on only one thing, what I can do best, enjoy doing and achieve better result. The book ‘The 4-hour Work Week’ by Timothy Ferriss, is a good read that helps towards this, I’ve learnt a lot from it.

At the moment I found a passion that’s working for me and I’m getting wonderful results from it, it’s my facial care routine.

I normally have dry, sensitive and blemished facial skin, which resulted partly from challenges I had with acne during my teenage years and improper management of this problem.

I have tried various soaps, creams, exfoliates, masks and all sorts of self prescribed products, sometimes i try products recommended by others, which I see is working for them, but when I try them, because my skin is sensitive, i end up with burns and blemishes.
My search ended when I came in contact with a friend and Christian sister, I noticed her beautiful skin, and kept wondering how she maintains her skin in the midst of her busy schedules as a mum and business woman, she runs two businesses and she participates regularly in the Christian community activities.

I eventually asked her and she introduced this amazing products to me, I took up the review process and got recommendations from one of the beauty consultants, for my skin type. These products are dermatologically and ophthalmologist tested on different skin types as I learnt when I did my research, my due diligence, so I don’t need any expensive professional skin care appointment. The first three uses made positive changes to my skin. I did not develop burnt-looking blemishes like I do with other products. I need to mention also, that I do not like to do too much fuss on my skin, I have little patience and time to use several products on my face continuously, so these products are just ideal and useful for busy lifestyles, because I only started with four facial essentials, not to forget the night cream, and one only needs to apply very little blob per use due to its effectiveness, so it lasts for a couple of months. Another exciting thing for me about this products is that the moisturising face creams are recommended to be used on the neck area as well and works on these area to provide the same rejuvenating, moisturising, sun-protecting and anti-ageing effects! this is genius! no one wants to have a smooth youthful face and a rough, wrinkled neck that just gives everything away and ruins the whole point, it’s so awesome to be able to wear comfortable clothes and feel good rather than to have to cover up the neck, especially during warm season.


These four essentials are;

  • The face cleanser,
  • Eye cream moisturiser
  • sunscreen moisturising face cream
  • Moisturising night cream after facial cleansing.

The best thing here is that the sunscreen cream is versatile, because it also contains antioxidants which protects the skin against age-accelerating free radicals. It contains SPF 30, which protects the skin from the sun’s rays as these rays can cause skin cancer if not well regulated. This cream also prevents premature ageing, fine lines and wrinkles. It contains moisturising ingredients that moisturises, locks in moisture and rejuvenates the skin, leaving it smooth, supple and glowing, and you get these results in just 4weeks!.

I didn’t stop there though, because I was so excited about my discovery and I know friend’s and other people who have been battling with skin problems such as acne, dry skin, combination skin, blemished or oily skin, that can benefit from these products, as they cover wide range of skin problems. I decided to enrol into their training program, to be a beauty consultant, it’s quite achievable, and I am enjoying helping and advising people on effective facial care.

There are other wide ranges of useful Mary Kay skin care products as well, such as the hand care set, lip care set, facial exfoliates and eye care products, unique coloured and textured make ups and foundations and exotic fragrances. I will share my use and progress with the hand care products here next, they work so well to help my hands feel soft, youthful and feminine.
Interested in any of the other beauty products? find out more by browsing my Mary Kay site below:

If you need a facial review consultation, you can get in touch with me on here, or in the website below, and I’ll get back to you promptly. Give the only skin you have, the great care you desire.

Can we live to the fullest?

#happiness

Hello, I’m back!

I have thought about the question above for a while and I feel it’s a question of possibility, we don’t really know if we can live our lives to the fullest, unless we try, and trying, is a step towards it becoming a reality.

It’s been a long while I’ve not posted on here, I’ve been into several commitments and engagement and have been working on these in between my regular day job. I’ll say that procrastination did set in a bit as well, I needed to put my thought together and make time to do so. Nevertheless, I’ve got this issue going in my mind, I feel the need to share, I hope it helps someone.

I find that the key elements to achieving a good state of wellness and well-being includes getting a good portion of the following:

• Health

• Wealth

• Education

• Security

• Social life

• Self care

• Spirituality

Living to our fullest

There may be more, but each of these aspects involves a lot of factors to make them complete, such as having a good health requires some effort on our part, we need to eat healthy. We can attain good health also, by having good and sufficient sleeps, regular exercises and striving to improve and achieve a positive mental state. Find out about healthy meals and options and attaining good health by going on the coaching pages on this site and registering for my healthy living course.

To be in a state of well-being, according to online dictionary is “a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare”. It covers a wide range of factors surrounding our bodies and lives. It is possible to be wealthy but not happy, happiness is a state of mind. Wikipedia defines happiness as having a positive and pleasant emotion, that comes from being content and having profound joy.

We can see that it’s not only the pursuit of wealth and attaining it, that brings happiness, contrary to what many may think. If you ask a person with terminal illness on their sick bed, what he/she wants most, I think the answer would not be money, as money cannot buy health.

This brings me to the very important topic I’m passionate about, in my mission – good health, above all I think we should prioritise our health or every other factor can be irrelevant. We need to take care of our mental state and spiritual state, for me, these two goes together. Because as a Christian, I have a strong belief in the word of God in the bible, His words encourages me and brings me right back on track when I’m feeling low or insecure. His word is full of wisdom, Knowledge and comfort, it says in proverbs 17:22 that “a merry heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones”. I learnt that one of the key factors to me being healthy, is to be happy, so I strive to be happy and make myself happy, by doing things that makes me happy.

Some people will say that having money can make you happy because you can afford to buy what makes you happy, like nice cars, house(s), the latest phone and all, yes I agree that having these things can bring some contentment, but these alone, can not make you happy or joyous continuously, for we are social beings, neither can they bring you to a state of being joyous, joy comes from within, realising who we are, our values, self esteem, surrounding ourselves with like minded and positive people, being healthy and contented, being creative and determined to achieve our goals and positive values and taking successful little steps to do this, helping others, taking reasonable self care and having fun, are some of the factors that can help us attain a state of – living our lives to the fullest.

You can learn more about this and my journey to improving my life and attaining a better lifestyle in my healthy living courses. You can also find useful information around this topic in the book: “How to maintain a good health, as a busy working mother” by Taiwo Taiwo. This can be found in Amazon, it is also available in kindle edition – which costs less, is quick and easy to read.

My Story

How my Business idea began:

My desire to help help working mothers achieve a healthy, well balanced lifestyle and well-being so that they can contribute their good potentials and skills they have within them, began on a day when a family friend came to visit us early last year. She is a young mother of two and was worried about her weight, she said she had been trying to lose weight for a while now especially after she had her last child who was around two years old then, but she had been finding it so difficult to keep the excess weight off. I asked her what effort she had been making to achieve her weight loss, because i had seen several colleagues from work facing the same problem and struggle and i spoke to some of them to offer them help.

She told me that she had tried by joining the gym in the past and attended weight loss regime with a trainer, but it became rigorous for her to keep up and she was not getting quick enough result, as soon as she stopped, she began to put back on the weight, the same had happened to her when she tried different weight loss programs in the past, most of which were diet related, but she kept putting back on the weight after these programs ended, she said that some of the programs became too rigorous, and expensive and so she had to stop. She said she found one weight loss program online recently and she felt it looked reasonable, so she had started to follow the steps and it cost her £500 per month, but she felt it does not seem to be working much for her. I was shocked at the price she was paying to lose weight and thought in myself that i have better ways around this problem, from my experience and knowledge, i can reach out to people like her with my easier and cheaper method and help them achieve the result i had, i knew weight problem is usually not caused by one aspect of the activities of daily living, it stems from different underlying causes some of which are our mental health, lifestyle and diet, to name a few. This thought stayed in my mind and i began building on it. After asking my young friend few more detailed questions, i explained to her how i kept my weight off without so much rigours and this encouraged her.

I have been seeing online advertisements and invitation to learn how i can teach what i know and make this lucrative, i was interested but did not know how to do this or what to progress with, so after i spoke to my young friend the idea played on my mind and then there was a moment when i read online about how a woman in particular, taught her expertise online with ease and style, i was encouraged and i joined her course as i was interested and her price was good, she also had a lot of students and membership site. I learnt a lot from her course and this really motivated me to start my own coaching course.

My vision is to reach out, using a holistic approach, to working mothers who are facing challenges with balancing their work and family lives and struggling with maintaining good health, having a self care time and quality family times, to achieve and maintain a holistic health and a well balanced lifestyle, based on my personal experience, learnt skills, research and a found to be effective methods. I want my clients to enjoy practicing what i teach in my course and then be able to reach out to other women who are struggling with the same challenges.

For updates and more information about my course, check my coaching page on this site. Hope you all keep keeping safe and positively occupied through this period, the topic on maintaining a positive, healthy mental state taught in my course should be a helpful one during this times, don’t miss it, and i believe the sun will come out tomorrow.

Wisdom is the real deal: 

Photo by Josh Willink on Pexels.com

I have read several literature about wisdom, how to find it and it’s benefits, I found the most important and useful information in the bible, in the book of proverbs.

Proverbs was written by Solomon, the son of David. In the chapters, he explains the benefits of wisdom, and this includes long life, riches, honour, safety – proverbs 3:16.

Proverbs 4:22 also explains that by gaining wisdom, we can live abundant and healthy lives: “For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh” (KJV). Wisdom of God also enables us to obtain favour from God – proverbs 8:35.

While reading, I sought for how to get the wisdom required to have all these benefits, because I long to live a fulfilled life, to be happy and make necessary and positive impact in life and I got an answer when I got to proverbs 9:10, here I learnt that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom! 

Proverbs 9:10 (KJV): “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding”.

This makes sense a lot to me, because with the sense and knowledge I have and have acquired so far, I know that I should honour God who I believe is the supreme creator of all things, I feel the whole universe is too intricately formed and well planned and arranged, to have happened by chance and put together carefully as it is, by a Big Bang theory. 

And if I honour God the Almighty, I would want to obey His command, love Him, love my fellow beings which He created and seek to do good to them, this gives me a feeling of peace. 

Also, I can trust Him to help me when in trouble, or when I don’t understand what is happening in me or around me, Proverbs 3:5 (KJV): “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding”. I get some peace and relief from this knowledge, I can go to sleep in peace, knowing that God is looking after me. I read in Proverbs 10:27 that the fear of the Lord gives long life, but the years of the wicked will be shortened, so I won’t worry about dying now. 

If we get this type of wisdom, we will dispel mental health challenges and unnecessary worries, so that we can move forward in our life goals, to achieve successes, live our lives in full and seek to make positive impacts in our world.

Protection during this trying period

Good handwashing practice can help prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria.

This past few days has been filled with apprehension and a lot of information is going on about the corona virus (covid-19), i got to hear about it in the news of it’s spreading around in China and people getting infected and loosing their lives. It seemed like one of those scary epidemic infections that would soon die off like the SARS, Eboli and the likes, but this became an increasing source of worry days later, when i heard it has got into the United Kingdom and that people were being diagnosed and dying of the infection in Italy. Few days later, i heard in the news that the disease was in the USA and in most part of the world and a lot of people are dead due to it, the scare really got to me when i heard that two elderly people had died in the hospital where i work, which is close to my home, i felt like what is this coming to?! my children attend a school just 10 minutes walk from my home and i am worried for them, especially when some countries announced the closure of schools and this is yet to be the case here.

I have done a lot of reading about this deadly virus, after all i learnt that knowledge is power, but everything i read has just helped to increase my fear of it. I learnt though, that the best thing to do is to eat healthy so you can have a strong immunity to fight it and also, protect yourself from catching it by not going in crowded areas, stay some distance away from people who are coughing or sneezing and catch your own cough and sneeze in a tissue and bin the tissue immediately. Wash your hands with antibacterial hand wash for at least 20 seconds after you get home from outdoor activities such as work or shopping, have an antibacterial hand gel with you when you are out and about and rub this on your hands after contact with surfaces such as door handles. Avoid shaking hands and hugging people and many more, these are the key ways to prevent catching the virus.

Therefore i’m doing everything i can to protect myself and my family from contacting the disease, i would like to stop my children from going to school for now, but i have to wait for the Government to announce school closures, i’m seriously waiting for this news. I learnt that children have shown to be more immune to the infection but they can acquire it and carry it in their bodies for a while and hence they can infect the more vulnerable people such as the elderly or people with low immunity they come in close contact with. As soon as my children walk through the door from school, i take them to the bathroom and get them to wash their hands thoroughly with the antibacterial hand wash. I have wiped the door handles, light switches and sinks, toilets and other surfaces around my home with antibacterial spray and i do this regularly, to help kill off any traces of the virus. I suggest that every parcel, letters and deliveries be sprayed as well, or a good hand washing should be done after handling such.

All said and done, i hope we get over this problem quickly for good like other past outbreaks and i pray we will not be infected by it, i think the disease will enable people to improve their personal hygiene, i heard it is helping families to come together and unite to fight a common enemy and to appreciate one another, more. I hope it makes people to seek God more and to seek to know Him and to be right with Him and also to pray more, repent and seek to live righteous lives and say NO to sins.

I pray that God will heal our land, (If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways; then will i hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land, 2 Chr 7:14).
