    Mental Health Awareness Month

    The month of May is globally known as Mental Health Awareness Month. We had the pleasure of opening our platform to the beautiful ladies Atishca Makan and Laaiqka Sukaih who shared their mental health journey with us. The first post of the Mental Health Awareness Month Series I touched a bit on my life with depression. The ups the downs and everything in between. A few years back I was involved in a horrifying car accident where I lost my friends at the scene of the accident. I remember the first 3 years after the accident I would tell every second person I meet about the scene. That was the…

    Mental Health Awareness Month: Grief – A Necessary Discomfort

    Grief by Atishca Makan I took hold of moms shaky hand, and we walked into my dad’s room together. From the moment I laid eyes on him in his bed, I knew he was gone. I felt it. I wanted nothing more than to collapse and retreat into myself at that moment. But I couldn’t. My mom needed a pillar of strength more than ever. So, I went onto autopilot. I took care of some of the funeral arrangements, bank paperwork, and all the legalities. I threw myself into it so quickly that I didn’t allow myself time to process my emotions. That was how the first year without Dad…

    Mental Health Awareness Month: My Journey With Depression

    I know I am not the only one whose depression peaked at the beginning of the lockdown. I hardly slept the the first month of the outbreak of COVID-19 in South Africa . Why? I think I was panicked at the news of the global pandemic. You would turn on to the news channel and every headline was about coronavirus. Stressful. It is only right to talk about the panic the global pandemic has raised since it is Mental Health Month. 💚 Mental Health is a real thing unfortunately we take it lightly because we are not informed adequately about it. It influences how we think, feel, and act. It…

    Review: Sana Organics Products – Self-care Emporium

    My second favourite thing to do after writing my blog posts is to practice self-care. I’m a huge fan of trying new things to improve my skin, mental health and body. Self-care is of utmost importance as it serves as a form of healing for your body, mind and /or spirit. What better way to practice self-care then using raw organic products? I received products from a local brand @sanaorganicsonline on Instagram to review. They arrived at a perfect time. The festive season gets really crazy and the body ends up in lots of pain and bruises. I put the products to the test at the peak of the festive…

    20/20 Vision

    Another year has passed by, 2019 was short of a roller coaster ride for me. I am just glad I made it through much stronger and wiser. 2020 is definitely the year for NEW everything, new energy, new job, new car, new home, new attitude, new peace, new dreams. [wpvideo HAE8wNyT ] I read somewhere on the internet that before we sit down and prepare our 2020 vision board we should write down a gratitude list for 2019. That way we get our energy right before making any more plans and/ or requests for the new year. Also, put to mind how the universe rewards the grateful. A grateful heart…
