17 Things Resilient Women Should Adapt When Faced With Challenges in Personal or Professional Life… 🌹🌹🌹

By Anika Khara

Get inspired with these tips from resilient women entrepreneurs who know how to cope when personal or business life gets crazy…

I will be the first to admit: 2014 was the year when I didn’t know if my career move will be successful or not or I would make any business profit or not. In 2017, when my business or career was just growing, I hit the “perfect storm”. I was diagnosed with calcified granuloma which took a major trool on me and my confidence, it was one of the major shock of my life after the loss of my mother. Health is something which is the most important part of our well-being, I realised it by that phase and how important is self care and self worth. It was potentially devastating. 

I noticed that sometimes when we are faced with a crisis, it’s often not so much what we do. More important can be what we don’t do when in the midst of that formidable challenge. 

As business women and an entrepreneur, we inevitably face change, and occasionally a personal or business crisis as we grow our businesses or our careers.

For all of you #bossbabes out there who might be caught in the midst of drama and trauma, here is a list of things that resilient women entrepreneurs do not do while working through the craziness. 

1. The blame-game is a waste of time.

With mindset, energy is critical and research has shown that our brains make the best decisions when flowing in a more positive mode. If we continue to replay our anger (even if that anger is directed to ourselves), we become less capable of clearly identifying the possible solution. Tangibly, people who define themselves as “happy” or “positive” tend to outsell those who call themselves “unhappy” or “pessimistic” by 20-30%. Getting beyond the anger and blame is critical to repairing the bottom line. Identify any misstep that might have lead you to the current situation and don’t repeat it — but focus on the present. This is where the best solution lies. 

2. Find the silver lining. 

They understand that change is essential to growth. Resilient women embrace that great obstacles can also evolve into the very thing that leads to a great opportunity. Look for the lesson inside of the crisis. What sort of clues to something bigger and better might be hiding in plain sight? Is this an opportunity to be open to something new and (yes) even better?

3. Don’t hide and isolate.

This was probably the toughest for me. I had never been in this sort of a mess and I felt like it floored me. I felt overwhelmed, weak, scared and terrified. The instinct was to run and hide. That was probably the worst thing that I could have done and yet that instinct is a powerful one. In reality, these moments are exactly the moments when other people can help. Whether it’s a mentor who is genuinely experienced in weathering these storms or a friend who is willing to wrap you in positivity, look yourself squarely in the mirror and remind yourself that your value and greatness is most definitely still there.

If your cash flow falls short, do what you can to face the music. Try to work out payment plans or to at least express your intent to pay as soon as possible. You will be amazed at how willing some people are to work with you. I even know entrepreneurs and other resilient women who handled bankruptcy with so much integrity that their original investors were willing to reinvest in the next business opportunity. Don’t assume that you know how others will react to “bad news”.

4. Lean into gratitude.

When it feels like your entire world is falling apart, one of the last genuine feelings that most people feel is gratitude. Even if all other aspects of your life are idyllic, when your financial world feels like a house of horrors, your life can feel worse than grim. If you are feeling sorry for yourself and/or angry at your circumstances, have the discipline to just find one thought that feels better. Maybe at first, that one thought has nothing to do with your own life. Maybe the best that you can find is that you know that some of the most successful people in the world at one point faced their own perfect storm. They had no more luck or tenacity than you do.

There are probably other areas of your life where you have seen evidence of your ability to be strong and persevere. You can at least be grateful for your perseverance and tenacity. And yes, while you are feeling grateful for those qualities, it becomes easier to acknowledge other aspects of your life that are the reason for hope. Many, many successful people and resilient women journal every morning the 5 items that they are grateful for. Feeling grateful for your life not only feels better but it can tangibly combat the symptoms of stress and set you up for better results both physically, professionally and mentally.

5. Don’t turn the big picture into a small picture.

When crisis enters our life, our knee jerk reaction can often be to imagine the worst. When my own crisis hit, my mind would create these amazingly terrifying stories that, to be honest, would literally paralyze me if I let them run wild. No matter how bad it seems, remember that this is not the end of the story. A lot of “terrible” things have been the catalyst to making some of the most amazing people into who they are today. Hold onto that expectation that your future will be even bigger because of this moment. You WILL make it through this to see massive success.

6. Remember to celebrate the success of others.

During these times, it can be tempting to focus on your competitors or on others who don’t seem to have it quite so hard. Take a breath. Play your own game and if you focus on keeping your own inner game deliberately positive, that’s when you stand not only to win, but to win big. A scarcity perspective keeps you small. The good stuff resides where the win/win thrives.

7. Maintain positive habits.

When things get tough, our positive habits can disappear pretty quickly. A terrified mind can find amazing ways to rationalize eating poorly, drinking excessively, eliminating all exercise, working long hours, ignoring friends/ family, worrying non-stop and an infinite list of counter-productive behaviors. It may take sheer will power to force yourself to do it, but retaining those positive habits can reward you ten-fold. Even taking 25 minutes a day — 10 minutes to exercise, 5 minutes to journal gratitude notes/successes and 10 minutes to focus your thoughts on the intention for the day ahead — can accelerate a breakthrough.

8. Trust the process (even if results aren’t immediate).

When our business or personal life suffers a major hit, we can often doubt everything. Rather than toss out your entire system, learn to ask different questions. Make sure that you are clear about your specific goals. Is what you are doing to get you closer to your goal? If you stopped doing what you have been doing, would that get you closer to your goals? Are you busying your time or are you like an artist with your time? Ask questions and look for honest answers — then commit and stay consistent. Resilient women don’t bail when you are three feet from your gold.

9. Don’t stop taking calculated risks.

The most celebrated human beings have all faced what some would call “failures” and yet articles abound on how these dynamos refused to stay down. Be smart. Learn from things that might have exposed you to this stumble but trust that your own inner brilliance (and the brilliance of your team) now has more data to apply.

10. Shed the should-haves and self-doubt.

There is a saying that in hard times, we have a tendency to “should” all over ourselves. Learning and growth are essential components of every champion’s rise to fame. Make sure that you are writing an empowered version of this chapter in your story. The day may come when you will see that this is the chapter that creates your masterpiece.

11. Never forget your why.

On my worst days, when I didn’t even want to get out of bed, sometimes the only things that kept me going were my “whys”. Knowing my ” WHY” helped me keep the immediate challenges in perspective. They kept feeding my hope and my determination. My “why” seemed to link directly to my emotions which was like rocket fuel when everything else seemed to leave my gas tank empty.

12. Rewrite a pessimistic narrative.

Don’t think that “I know that already” or that “I have tried that already.” These two sentences seemed to be a mantra for my own pessimistic inner narrative. When I finally acknowledged that I didn’t have a crystal ball and that the answer might truly be right around the corner, I would inevitably see my best progress. Stay open. Stay curious and you will be surprised what new “aha” moments fall into your lap. And one “aha” moment might just be the key to your next #Bossbabe empire! Or, at least to building skills to join the ranks of other resilient women.

13. Surround yourself with positive people.

Removing negative people can be a challenge because often those who are the closest can inadvertently cut the deepest. I found that people did genuinely intend to help but often their advice felt more confusing and disempowering than helpful. When we are in these challenging times, others who can truly empathize might be the better option. Mentors, masterminds and in some cases coaches can truly provide invaluable insights and systems. Fellow entrepreneurs and other resilient women who were positively supportive helped me stay the course. Build your network of BOSSBABES and remember to CHAMPION EACH OTHER through the stormy waters.

14. Know what you can and can’t control.

We can focus on the things that we hope to have more of — or we can focus on the elements in our life that we still believe that we lack. Again, our mindsets run on our energy and when we waste valuable time/energy on things that we cannot control, we are choosing not to fully live.

15. Stop trying to do it all.

There is a reason why there are billions of us on this tiny planet and yet no two of us are exactly alike. Sometimes we entrepreneurs try to do it all. We keep trying to do more and more, often because at some level, we believe that we are not enough. Trust me, you ARE enough. And when you finally relax into genuinely allowing others into your world, you may just see how “all that” that you truly are.

16. Ask for help.

One of the biggest moments through my own storm was when I realized that I could simply ask. I had to put aside my pride, my ego, my worst enemy’s conviction that I “knew” what the answer would be. I had to brave being will to ask. And guess what? As it turns out — shock — my worst fears couldn’t have been more wrong. There was an entire world out there of people who were happy to help, happy to work with me and (who knew) who even thought very highly of me — in spite of this storm. Give yourself credit and give life a chance to surprise and delight you. Most likely, it will.

17. Expect eventual success.

If there was one sliver of mindset magic that probably helped me the most, it was refusing to believe that this storm meant game over. Like many resilient women, I began to see and feel the difference. As you launch into your businesses, dare to dream big. And when those challenges erupt, take a moment to breathe. And remember: when my business was at its lowest, my own rise from the ashes came not from the things that I did but more importantly from the things that I decided NOT to do. 

We are resilient women and we can handle whatever life throws our way.

AS WOMEN UNDERSTAND YOUR POWER AND BE YOUR OWN POWER, THTS THE ONLY THING YOU NEED. ” You are your Power”

SHAMELESS! ❤️ Shamelessly Accept Your & Others Flaws Too…

By Anika Khara

Have you considered how your life affects the lives of other people in your life? I think it’s high time, we address the biggest internal block we all face, the birthplace of fear and the source of that self-destructive inner-voice: Shame.

Shame, even that word makes us cringe. When we talk to people about their fears, they can freely admit surface level fears like height or spiders and sometimes even share deeply about fear of failure, or maybe pain. For some reason as a society, we are comfortable with fear and we talk about it as the big problem that we need to overcome but mention shame and everyone clams up. That tells me that we are on a hot trail to something deeper…

When you look at fear, we have fear of a physical consequence and fear of emotional consequence. Both include the fear of shame. If you lost your job, you’d have a physical consequence of losing income, not being able to afford your life but you’d also be fearful of the shame of letting down your family or self, shame from internal and external sources.

Shame isn’t only connected to fear, it is a deeply seeded operating system we use in our decision making. Can you say that you live totally and fully in your authenticity? Or are there parts of you that you hide or minimize? Why? Are you afraid of judgement, of not being accepted? Maybe its your own internal shame; the programming from our growing up that tells us parts of ourselves are bad, that pesky voice I mentioned earlier. Maybe it’s external shame, others or society telling you how to be and how not to be to avoid humiliation. Avoid humiliation, thats a main goal we are conditioned to live by, but why?

Shame is a parasitic monster sucking our life of joy, self-love and the ability to truly accept and celebrate others, too.

How can we move past this damaging habit? The first step is done! Awareness. Just reading this blog and considering how it applies to your experience means you are aware (at least a bit) of how shame affects you. Now, you can take action.

SHAMELESS

Don’t despair! This is something you can overcome. Self-care is a big topic and has been for the last decade, but I think its time we shift toward self-nurturing. Learning to care for our body and feelings is so important but let’s step into the deeper waters. Self-nurturing means finding the parts of yourself that are broken, hurt or discarded and loving them up. Imagine those parts of yourself like a little bird with a broken wing, wrap them in a blanket, hold them gently to you and give them empathy and care. The deeper layers of your self are in need of more than a face mask and strong boundaries.

We can transmute that shame by finding self-acceptance. Look at the parts of yourself you feel ashamed of, can you empathize? Accept your less-than-perfect self? It helps to remember that every single person harbors shame too, just like you. We need to start taking on self-nurturing and expressing it outwardly too. That person you judged, find a way to call your own bull and find something positive to say about them, then go inside of yourself and find the broken part that makes you want to project that judgement. And yes, have a solid cry.

This life is yours to live and your views are yours to form. Try questioning your view of right and wrong, good and bad, appropriate and shameful. You might just find some programming that you don’t agree with.

When you can get real and I mean REAL with yourself and feel all those pains and shames, you have the total opportunity to change your shame into acceptance and find that inner peace. Beyond inner peace, there is power! Power to know yourself fully, to not be running, hiding or covering up any parts of wonderfully made, you.

To be able to say “Hey! This is me! Unapologetically and SHAMELESSLY me! And I love me.” And when you can really feel that, you can give it to others too.

The Beauty Of Accepting Who You Are is not at all shameless, but coming out of our comfort zones takes a lot of power, not feeling ashamed of ourselves takes a lot of power, so Yes Empower Yourself and everyone around you and That Too Shamelessly….❤️❤️❤️

PERSONAL ACCEPTANCE AND EXCELLENCE IS NOT THAT HARD.. TRY THESE SIMPLE WAYS 🌸🌸🌸

By Anika Khara


In my years of pursuit of personal excellence, I have found 5 timeless steps in ensuing my own growth which I’d love to share with you here and I hope will be useful to you..

1) Believe in Yourself

Self belief is the utmost important step. If you don’t believe in yourself, how do you expect anyone else to believe in you? If you want to achieve greatness, you have to first believe that you are capable of doing it. Know that there is no one else but you who can attain what you want to do. As Napoleon Hill puts it, “What the mind can conceive, it can achieve”.

One of my favorite stories is Sylvester Stallone’s real life rags to riches story. Before he was propelled to stardom with the Rocky series, he was living out what others would deem as a ‘paltry’ existence as a wannabe actor. Because of his birth complication where he was born with a side of his face paralyzed and a slurred speech, he was rejected by countless casting agents in his quest for his dreams. At some point, he became poor as a pauper, and even his wife left him. But he never gave up. He firmly believed that he would be able to make it as an actor – not just an actor, but a movie star. And he finally did – today, he is an internationally acclaimed movie star, film director, producer and screenwriter. This would never have happened if he gave up his self-belief.

2) Keep Building Your Skills

Have you invested your 10,000 hours to develop your skills? If you haven’t, when can you start investing the time? If you have, how can you invest another 10,000 hours? No matter how much time and effort we have already spent in developing ourselves, there will always be opportunity to improve and be better.

Think about the skills which you possess at the moment as well as skills which you would like to have, but have yet to acquire. For example, some of the skills which I target to build for the upcoming few months are (1) Writing (2) Public Speaking (3) Productivity (4) Discipline (5) Organizational Skills (6) Badminton. How about yours?

3) Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

When you are out of your comfort zone, you are already growing by default. Comfort zones are called comfort zones because it’s where you feel safe and comfortable. When you stay in an area of comfort, you subject yourself to things you have become accustomed to – which leads to little or no growth. On the other hand, if you move beyond that area of comfort, even by a little bit, you start facing things which you are not exposed to before. This new context and new stimuli triggers off a reprocessing process in your mind as you adapt to handle them. This means growth.

What are your comfort zones when it comes to your work? Environment? Diet? Daily routines? Places you go to? Clothes you wear? People you hang out with? Your goals? How can you change them around just to experience something different? How can you push yourself to an uncomfortable zone so you can grow? The more uncomfortable you feel about something, the more it means you are growing.

4) Be Around the Best.

I love this quote from Jim Rohn, which I feel sums this up – “You are the average of five people you are around“.

Who you are with has a role in affecting who you become. If you hang around people who are committed to excellence, sets themselves up to achieve nothing but the best, you are going to emerge a different person compared to if you hang around people who are jaded and are constantly lamenting about life. Cut yourself loose from people who don’t support you and increase your contact with the people who do. Above all, connect yourself with the best – the cream of the crop. If you have a goal to be a chef with your very own restaurant, start linking up with the top chefs of your country, or even possibly the world as you move forward on your endeavors. Even if it’s not possible to be personal friends, you can be connected with them by virtue of exposing yourself to outputs of their work – books, shows, interviews, etc. You will find yourself improving by leaps and bounds just from framing yourself together with them.

5) Set Huge Goals.

Emphasis on the word huge. Not the normal, standard goals which you know you will definitely be achieving with a certain amount of work and effort. We’re talking about the humongous goals which make you feel somewhat nervous and uncomfortable on whether it’s possible to even attain them. These are the goals which will really make you stretch yourself, soar, and then beam with an incredible lot of satisfaction when you do achieve them. Even if you don’t eventually get to nail them in the bag, the most important thing to realize is you have grown a lot more than if you set puny goals and achieved them.

Be focused on the amount of growth you get and don’t be attached to the specific outcomes, because the outcomes don’t define who you are – “Who you are define who you are.”

Acceptance of who we are is the most important thing one can do in order to attain self worth and self love. Nothing is perfect and that’s the beauty, when we accept our imperfections we become Imperfectly PERFECT 💯💯

Want People to Listen When You Speak? SOME POINTERS 💯💯💯

By Anika Khara

Learning how to capture audience attention can make or break your success as a leader. These tips will help you speak with confidence and sell with self-assurance.

Being able to capture the attention of your audience — be it an auditorium of hundreds of people, a conference room, a one-on-one conversation or an Instagram Live — is a crucial skill for anyone aspiring to hold a leadership position.

Given the reality of the glass ceiling, you want to give yourself every possible chance to succeed. The goal is to remove obstacles, not create more. Doing this is as simple as paying attention to the way that you speak. Here’s what you need to know…

What makes someone instantly trustworthy?

On a primitive, neurochemical level, the brain wants to know whether someone can be trusted or not. A 2015 study done by McGill University discovered that our brains assess the confidence level of whoever is speaking to us in under a second.

That doesn’t allow much wiggle room for charming humility. By the time you’re saying, “This might sound stupid…” your listener’s brain has flipped the off switch, so to speak.

The brain’s natural proclivity is to trust tones that are lower in pitch, have a flatter intonation and a faster speech rate. 

Tones that have a higher pitch, a slower speech rate and, most importantly, rise in pitch at the end like a suggestive question – i.e. upspeak – are neurologically considered not confident.

Higher and lower pitches – faster and slower speech rates – it’s all a tad abstract. How are we supposed to know if we’re talking high or low, fast or slow? As women, our voices are going to naturally be higher than men’s. 

Are you asking or telling?

What’s not abstract though is ending statements as questions. This is kind of a tall order as even the most confident among us fall prey to the occasional upspeak. The point is to be aware of it. Be aware of the tone with which you finish your statements. If you catch yourself frequently ending your statements in a question, it might be worthwhile to examine why.

A great place to study tone is TED Talks. You’ll notice that speaker after speaker does not use disclaimers or end their statements in upspeak. This is because, as a Ted Talk speaker, they need to project confidence and expertise.

Society would like women to remain insecure and unsure of what they’re saying. That might be why we – more often than men – use upspeak and preface our points with disclaimers.

So, the question remains: are you feeling insecure about what you’re saying or who you’re speaking to? If the answer is no and you internally do feel confident about what you’re saying then there’s really no need to finish your statements as questions.

Again, give yourself a fighting chance in the professional world where you’ll be up against men overflowing with overconfidence.

You’ve got their attention, how do you keep it?

When you want people to buy into you and/or your message, tell stories. Since the beginning of time, humans have connected through stories. If you want to make a memorable point, tell a story. That will drive home the moral more surely than the most well-reasoned abstract argument. 

Storytelling provides a common ground where people can share their experiences with others. Although each person may interpret the story differently, everyone gets the point, and it increases the chance of the audience connecting with the speaker.

In fact, a 2010 research study done found that when one person tells a story, the brains of the listeners tend to synchronize (i.e., light up in the same ways). Moreover, they discovered that successful storytelling creates neural coupling between speaker and listener, meaning the same areas of the brain in both speaker and listener light up.

These general findings support the idea that communicating through storytelling creates a mental dance between a speaker and an engaged listener.

If you aspire to one day have your own TED Talk, lead meetings, or simply run a brand that people trust, grabbing and holding people’s attention will make or break you. Follow these tips to capture audience attention and you will instantly boost your chances of success in business and in life.

Hope you liked the blog and it would help you.

LOVE YOUR SKIN – TIPS FOR SKIN CARE💗💗

By Anika Khara

No matter the season, heat, humidity, dry air, wind, and other environmental factors can take a toll on your skin. The best way to prevent damage from extreme weather is to commit to a daily skin care routine to keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
For the skin which needs more attention and care, you can also get facials and rejuvenating treatments from a medical spa, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, to keep up your skin looking and feeling great.
Here are some tips for loving your skin:

1. Hydrate

Drinking a lot of water and keeping your skin well-hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your skin. As the body’s largest organ, your skin often reflects things like stress, poor diet, or a harsh environment.
By drinking a lot of water, you can help your skin flush out toxins and protect it from daily damage. Over time, you’ll notice a glowing, youthful appearance to your skin.

2. Use Sun Protection

Sun damage is one of the worst things for your skin. Not only does it prematurely age you, but it also increases your risk for skin cancer.
To keep your skin protected, use sunscreen daily. In general, you want a sunscreen that’s an SPF of 45 or higher and offers protection for both UVA and UVB light. Be sure to re-apply multiple times over the course of the day, and remember that even gloomy winter days and overcast skies don’t eliminate the risk of sun exposure.

3. Moisturize

In addition to keeping your skin hydrated from the inside, a little bit of topical moisturization never hurts. Find a moisturizer you love, and be sure to make it part of your regular skincare routine.
It may take some time to find a moisturizer that works well for your age and skin type, but it’s worth the effort.

4. Schedule a Spa Treatment

Medical spas offer many treatments to rejuvenate your skin, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Both treatments exfoliate your skin, and many people see smooth, glowing skin after just one treatment.
Whichever you choose, spa skincare treatments are a valuable addition to your skincare routine and help keep your skin healthy and beautiful, as well as reducing some of the damage that occurs over time.

5. Get your Antioxidants

Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress in the body and eliminate free radicals, both of which can contribute to premature aging. Antioxidants also protect your skin against the damage caused by UV rays, and lower your cancer risk.
Some common antioxidant foods include dark chocolate, berries (especially blueberries), spinach, green tea, black tea, red wine, and a number of other fruits and vegetables.

To keep your skin looking and feeling as healthy as possible, follow our skincare tips and show your skin some love. If you feel like your skin needs a little more attention, treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa treatment or a good skincare routine at home too..

OUR SKIN IS THE MOST SENSITIVE PART OF OUR BODY, PLUS PLAYS A BIG ROLE IN HOW WE FEEL TOO… THUS ITS IMPORTANT TO TAKE CARE OF IT.

Walking.. An Easy But Fabulous Exercise.. See The Listed Benefits.. 💗💗

By Anika Khara


What’s so special about walking? Nothing special. It’s just a simple way, say an aerobic exercise, of keeping your body and mind fit, keeping you fresh and lively for long hours. I used to see a lot of youngsters and aged ones walking on the streets and grounds, taking care of their body in a fine manner. Walking is gaining momentum among people of all age groups, earlier this was not the case. Now people are becoming more aware of this. We need to walk at least 30 minutes daily, try to walk daily in the morning. You can fix morning or evening time. A walk gives us a lot of energy to move on the remaining part of the day in an active manner.

According to studies, people who walk have less body fat than those who don’t walk. Let’s have a look at 6 benefits of walking.

1. Walk for your heart:

Regular walking reduces the risk of heart ailments. It can lower the levels of bad cholesterol and increase the levels of good cholesterol. Chances for a stroke will also be less. You can control high blood pressure with a 30-minute walk regularly.

2. Good for osteoporosis:

Having regular walk can stop the loss of bone mass for patients with osteoporosis. For women, post-menopause, daily walk for 30 minutes reduces the risk of hip fractures to a large extent.

3. Walk to burn weight:

Walk 2 miles per hour for 30 minutes, you will be able to reduce 75 calories of weight. It’s a fantastic yet simple exercise to burn your calories in an effective manner. Don’t bother about the possibilities of being an overweight, if you walk regularly.

4. Walk to strengthen muscle:

Regular walking makes your leg and abdominal muscles strong.

5. Walk for a sound sleep:

Those are lucky who have a sound sleep. Sleepless nights are becoming a big problem for many. Regular one-hour morning walk gives men and women sound sleep in the night. Some studies prove that women who walk are more likely to relieve insomnia than women who don’t have the habit of walking.

6. Walk for happiness:

Walking matters a lot for this one reason, happiness. A fresh money walk is grand enough to change your mood. It can bring out positive energy. It’s a great anti-depression strategy. It can reduce stress and anxiety. If you want to be positive, no second thought, start walking.

Any kind of Exercise is very important to have a happy and healthy living..

But if we cannot find time to go to gym or yoga classes.. we can always opt for walking as its the easiest way to have a workout for our mind and body..

Keep in mind alwaysss..

We all need to give our body the gift of Exercise..

Apple Cider Vinegar.. Lets Find Out Its Uses and Why Is Its So Popular..💗💗

By Anika Khara

I’ve been drinking Apple Cider Vinegar daily in the morning after my ANIKA’S Detox Powder ( will be adding a new blog it soon) I whip up a little shot and down it goes. It’s not a magical weight loss elixir, but it does have tons of incredible uses and benefits.

If you’re on the coconut oil train, this is it’s sister cure all. They are often used together for even greater results! Apple Cider Vinegar can be used for a million different things, even cleaning your house and face. That’s right, face.

ACV is made from aged apples that are crushed and fermented. Make sure you get the organic, raw and un-filtered kind. These types have the most vitamins, minerals and healthy bacteria. (Mmmmm delicious!)

While it is pretty amazing, it’s still VINEGAR. It honestly tastes and smells TERRIBLE, but it’s TOTALLY worth it!

1. Detox Time

Apple Cider Vinegar helps your body reach a natural alkaline ph level. It’s full of vitamins and minerals which can cleanse your liver and intestines. One of the best parts about it is that it can aid in digestion, de-bloating and weight loss.

There was one diabetes study a while back that found participants who took two tablespoons of vinegar prior to two meals per day lost an average of two pounds over the four-week period. Of course every body is different, but with all of the additional benefits.. then why not.

I Like to use organic ACV to make this healthy shot each day, first thing in the morning.

  • 2 Tbs ACV
  • 1 Cup warm water
  • Sprinkle of Turmeric

you just can’t handle this little elixir as is, try adding a bit of raw honey to the mix to cut the vinegar taste. You will literally feel your insides get warm as it gets to work.

2. Give Your Skin a Healthy Glow!

There are two awesome ways I LOVE to use it to help my skin stay free of pimples and acne. The first is simply by drinking the detox elixir above.

The second is using it as a toner on your skin. Because of all of the anti-bacterial benefits, ACV will actually help clean and heal the skins surface. I also will add it to my clay mask once a week for some amazing feeling skin. After, I usually use a small amount of coconut oil to really moisturize and continue the amazing skin transformation.

3. Ditch the Dandruff

You can use the vinegar as a rinse after shampooing your hair to help cleanse your roots and actually add shine, naturally.

4. Perk Up Those Pearly Whites

Just by rubbing a little on your teeth you can help remove stains from your teeth naturally. I like to dip my toothbrush in ACV and a little baking soda for even more whitening effect.

So if those reasons weren’t enough for you to want to run out and grab a bottle, here are a few more:

  • Lowers Cholesterol
  • Heals Sunburn
  • All Purpose house cleaner
  • Salad Dressing
  • Natural Aftershave
  • Air Freshener
  • Reduce Heartburn
  • Soothe Sunburn
  • Cooking (anytime it calls for vinegar)

I still haven’t tried all of the amazing uses for Apple Cider Vinegar, but I definitely plan to.

Hope you liked this blog and try using this awesome ACV drink..

How to Build An Authentic Network that Nurtures Your NetWorth.. Professionally. 🌸🌸🌸

By Anika Khara

Discover real-life examples and actionable tips ( Taken From My Experiences)on how to create and maintain authentic relationships that will effectively increase your net worth.

Some people look at personal and professional networks as different, definitive lines. But in today’s time, when the lines of 9-5 are blurred with always-on technology and accessibility, it’s critical to remember there is no work/life balance, just life. And with that, learning to build authentic relationships is essential.

Here’s the thing. If you can build more meaningful, authentic relationships, you will get so much more out of ALL of your relationships. Your network will be off the charts. Your net worth will increase.

If you can cultivate authentic, meaningful relationships that raise other people up around you, you will rise, too.

This blog will provide tips on how to create (and maintain) meaningful relationships, effectively increasing your net worth.

Networking is NOT Working.

Can we all agree to stop using network as a verb? As in “you’re networking.” It’s selfish. It’s inauthentic. And it’s not working.

“To me, a ‘network’ implies inauthenticity and ‘using’ people around you, when the most valuable networking actually comes from real, honest, authentic relationships.”

1. ROOT YOUR RELATIONSHIPS IN AUTHENTICITY. 

Since I am a part and co founder of Women Business Cult( An All Women Organisation), it is important to me that we foster a community of ‘real talk’ that our organisation facilitates. That way we can understand local challenges (or opportunities!) better as a whole, as well as provide them with the support they need to be set up for success.

Especially in the startup ecosystem, the line between friend/peer/colleague can get very blurry, so it’s important to me to be a positive, encouraging force and elevate those around me, just as they do for me!

Sharing an authentic point of view – with the same, positive intent – helps us all better achieve our goals.”

Make a Strong First Impression.

“when chatting with someone, try to get present to this:

  1. What is something unique or complimentary you learned from your convo?
  2. Tell them!
  3. Acknowledgement is powerful and creates a meaningful foundation.

“it’s more important to get to know who someone is vs focus on learning about what they do, because people change jobs all the time, and jobs themselves evolve all of the time.”

The Cream Always Rises to the Top.

By Having positive, open, honest, respectable relationship with my companies and clients, I found myself in a position where work never felt like “work.” I believe it all blends together, and that is part of the success equation.”

2. OBEY THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

Do Unto Others As You Would Have Done Unto You

“I genuinely love to connect people,”

“I have found that ‘networking’ is a cheesy word – and people do it wrong all of the time – but it’s been my lifeline for the past 5 years professionally.”  

“My whole life – my job, the places I’ve worked– always have had to do with tapping into my personal community (or them reaching out to me). It’s allowed me the opportunity to work with good companies, have the best workshops and training.”

“It’s important to me that I also take the time to be willing to connect people, offer them opportunities. Being in any community, whether work, organisations or friends, involves being generous and authentic with your own connections and time.”

3. KNOW THAT ALL RELATIONSHIPS TAKE EFFORT.

Start Small.

“Go to ONE event and talk to ONE person who also may be alone or a little shy or introvert. You don’t need to meet everyone in the room, and starting with small wins is way better than not pushing yourself out of your comfort zone at all!

“Just start asking questions and have a genuine interest in the person. People generally feel comfortable speaking about themselves. And this gives you the opportunity to find a common bond and build authentic relationships!”

Build Connection ARCs (Acknowledgement, Relatability, Curiosity)

If you want to create meaningful connections with people around you, that means having active conversations.These Easy-to-Remember connection ARC for your communication considerations:

  • Acknowledgement – what does your conversation with someone say about them? 
  • Relatability – build bridges between their experience and yours so there are points of recognition.
  • Curiosity – Seek to understand, and assume positive intent. Discover one’s interests, motivations and incentives. 

4. AUTHENTICITY ALLOWS FOR PERSISTENCY. 

When you are an authentic person, you can be committed in your cause.

Cultivate Lasting Relationships: Emphasis on SOCIAL Media

“If you have genuine interest, it’s pretty easy to be attentive,”

One of the great thing about social media, is that there are so many ways to tell what is going on with people. I am pretty vigilant about reaching out when I see these moments.

“We always think everyone has such a vibrant network of friends – but a lot of people don’t have a big network cheering them on. And I like to think I am part of that community for people.

5. ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS

Eagles Fly With Eagles.

There is a thought that you are the energy of the 5 people you engage with most. This could be at work and in your personal life. Literally, time spent together.

Who are they? Do they reflect the best you you want to be?

Reason, Season or Lifetime.

Remember, sometimes people are in your life just for a reason, season or a lifetime. Not everyone in your community needs to stay with you forever. Maybe they served a temporary purpose. And you’re likely no longer that same person.

And lastly, make sure everyone in your circle elevates you 🤗

2022 Goals… SELF LOVE IDEAS 🌷🌷

By Anika Khara

Ahh yes, you. Everyone reading this, You deserve a little reminder to take care of YOU. I’m gonna give you a few ideas to brush up on your self-love.

So here are a few reminders to make you understand how important is loving yourself and taking care of your self. They’re in no particular order. In fact, mix and match all you want, but don’t forget to take time for these imperial parts of living mindfully, happily and taking great care of YOU.

Yoga

(Or Pilates, Or gym, Or Walking, or some type of body, mind, spirit exercise.) The gym is great. Running, superb! I Personally take time to nurture my body with yoga and a strengthening, calming workout. The effect: My core is strong, so I feel great. And I get to melt away all the stress or thoughts that are not that great. And if I fall while practicing head stands, I fall. I’m reminded to simply lift myself back up. Yoga works for Self-Love.

Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a natural quality that we all have. It’s available to us in every moment if we take the time to appreciate it. When we practice mindfulness, we’re practicing the art of creating space for ourselves—space to think, space to breathe, space between ourselves and our reactions. This will make you become more aware of where you are and what you’re doing, without becoming overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around you

Read

I’m not talking about your emails, or your to-do list for the next day in bed at night. I’m talking about reading. (And not OK! Magazine.) I’m talking about investing in great books that build your sense of self, character, confidence, charisma and all the ways in which you can become a better you. The effect: You’re smarter and wiser. You begin using new words and feel refreshed and accomplished for completing each book.

Travel

I am talking about real travel. Its a beautiful gift you can give to yourself this new year. Personally I think something changes in me everytime I travel, a positive change.

I know it’s hard to plan travel for some people or for especially our busy Moms but, even if it’s just a walk to the park to sit on a bench, or even to try a new coffee. Do it!  The effect: Serenity. You get this sense of beauty and wonder when you’re sitting someplace different, watching others and enjoying some quiet time or even exploring new places.

Change something about yourself

Your earrings, shoes, your belt. Make it different. Stop the routine. Ok, routines are nice. I admit, but jazz it up and surprise yourself with something that sparks a new light on who you are. I coloured my hair a week ago. I found an image on Pinterest, brought it to the stylist at a salon and voila. I feel different, liberated and confident. Honestly, it sounds a little odd but trust me something changes by small changes. So, think about what you can change, because you deserve that spark. The effect: You’ll amaze yourself when you look in the mirror and realize how slight changes can lift your spirit and boost your energy levels.

Face your fears

It is human nature to avoid emotions that scare us.  Who wants to walk directly into what promises to be a painful experience? Except that by continually avoiding looking at the ‘inner you’ within, you become hostage to the monster. Typically this involves hiding from any potential stressor that might cause upset and engaging in endless distractions. Thus you are also hiding from potential challenges that can lead to growth and joy. Plus, you can’t hide forever from fear. It’s going to strike, despite your best efforts to suppress it. And it is likely that it will strike at a time when you most need emotional equanimity. Here are some tips on how to face your fears:

Become 1 with your flaws

Ah yes, the hardest one perhaps, but the most rewarding. Life is about loving the fall just as much as the rise. That’s what makes the end a journey, not a destination. The effect: You’ll enjoy being around yourself more when you can forgive yourself for messing up. You may even get a strut in your step. Forgiving yourself is even better at your work or your personal decisions. Hey… this is life. And you’re better for your mistakes. Who is perfect? Ah ha. No one…

There’s obviously a ton more self-love tips I could give as I live them daily such as Find Gratitude, Be grateful, Shop (Yes, I said it), Exfoliate, Eat healthy, Aromatherapy, Buy yourself A Gift, Enjoy Icecream, Get yourself a Coffee, Listen to your favourite song, Enjoy music, Sit in a garden, throw a rock in a pond, Enjoy a spa day, watch your favourite movie, express love, Sleep when needed and many more things can be done that make you feel happy. All of these things can equate to greater self-love and it’s so valuable that you find the time to nurture your soul. You’ll be even better in your personal and professional life, when you take the time to do the above and more.

Making resolutions is something we have been doing since years, keeping them or breaking them has also been a part of it ( yes we all break them) But, The Power of SELF LOVE is something which we all should start as its the only way to find a positive approach to love others too.

Lots of love and Happy New year

How Self Care Can Actually Boost Your Professional Life🌷🌷

How Self Care Can Actually Boost Your Professional Life

 By Anika Khara

In recent years, mental health has been getting the attention it deserves. Unsurprisingly, this trend has been followed by a multitude of discussions that have looked into the importance of mental health in all other aspects of human life, especially work. After all, a article by the World Health Organisation underlined that while work is good for the mind, a negative working environment can potentially lead to a number of physical and mental health problems. Let’s see how self-care effects one’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being can help boost your professional life.

Self-care and professional life

A lot of people would agree that work takes center stage in the lives of most people and it’s easy to see why this is the case. A stable professional life not only translates to financial security but also to an established personal identity. These are the reasons why a lot of people care so much about their professional life, even up to a point where it can be detrimental for their overall well-being. However, it’s important to note that spending hours and hours on end doing work doesn’t always mean you are more productive, effective, and efficient. In reality, it can be quite the opposite. Taking the time to rest, pursuing a healthy work-life balance, and setting aside time for one’s self will do more to improve your professional life.

Practicing self-care

As tempting as it may be to work from your couch or your bed, it is something you should stop doing if you want to take better care of yourself. Such a habit not only negatively affects your sleep quality but also harms your posture and can cause pain. All of these things can make you gravely uncomfortable, thereby making it harder for you to focus and stay productive throughout your workday. To ensure that you are able to work comfortably without compromising your posture, it would be a good idea to invest in an ergonomic chair.

Healthy mindset

During these trying times, it is becoming even more important to have a positive mindset. Such an attitude will help you cope with the unique stresses related to the current circumstances. A positive mindset can also free professionals of self-limiting thoughts, help them take failures better, increase their resilience and eventually open up new doors and opportunities for them.

Knowing when to say no

Many of us believe that passing up on a chance to impress or get on the good side of a work superior is a step away from promotion. However, not knowing when to say no can actually do more damage to your overall work, which will have a direct impact on your career progression. Apart from ensuring a better quality of work, saying no can also help you set healthy boundaries and afford you time to focus on other things that are more significant for improving your work performance. If you are feeling that your professional life needs a boost, we hope you consider the above tips.

Feeling good about ourselves helps us to create a positive attitude and mindset. Creating a positive mindset helps us look at the bight side of any situation.
