My stress management techniques


stress management techniques
The number of jobs, responsibilities, and problems faced daily can make us feel stressed. Can we not feel stress in one day? Plus, many people underestimate mental health. Stress may affect our mental health, stress might affect a lot of things that we actually didn't realize.

In fact, disturbing mental conditions can also cause illness and may lead to depression. Just because of this "stress", it already makes our life feel miserable.

However, thank god that stress management exists. Although it doesn't eliminate our stress forever, at least we can release the tension little by little.

How do I manage my stress? 

stress management techniques

1. Interact with Pets 

I have a cat and a dog. Both pets are also used as therapy animals to meet basic human needs. Seeing my cat running around actively always hype me and my dog always seems happy whenever he sees me. I left home for 3 hours, and my dog greets me as if he hasn't met me in 3 years.

Caring for animals is one way to relieve stress. Not only relieving stress, but also a good companion for us. Having a pet never makes me feel lonely. I always have something to look forward to them. 

Interacting not only by petting their head but also by talking to them. They do understand you! Except for my cat, I know she understands me, but most of the time she ignores me. Unlike my dog, he listened to me and always follow me around. It's like my guardian angel.

Everyone of course has their different option for raising their pets. Some are birds, turtles, or fish. It's up to you, all animals are loved.

2. Talk to someone

I am lucky to have few friends that I can trust because when I feel unbearable stress I usually tell my friends about how I felt. Some might give me support, try to help, some make jokes about my stress. It's okay to make jokes, as long as it makes me laugh.

However, the internet is easy to access. Why don't we try to talk with strangers, or someone from other regions, someone you met online? Just think like this, you join into a Facebook group that talk about stress, and find someone there that are looking for a friend to chat.

There are tons of people there, that are looking for someone to talk to. Why talking to strangers on the internet? Because, why not? Because you don't know me and I also do not know anything about you. Well, we couldn't judge each other. We are here to talk, not for judging.

That is why sometimes it's good talking with strangers rather than with someone we knew. That someone we knew might bring up our past as if we never changed. Believe me or not, people on the internet will build each other up rather than crashing us down. Why don't you give it a try?

stress management techniques

3. Playing Games

Another way to relieve stress that I do is playing games. I used to play online RPG games with my sister, but playing games took a lot of my time. Then I had to stop. Games are a good way to relieve your stress, but you need to choose the right game. Just play a chill game, that doesn't make you stress.

Maybe a board game? It's your call, choosing a game that is not easy for you to lose. At least you can forget about your stress while playing games, right?

Referring to number two, you can also play online games; where you can talk to someone while completing an in-game quest. Whoever said that gamers are "forever alone" person, has probably never played an online game before. Oh, and sometimes, the friends you met in online games, might become your real-life friends too!

4. Rest and sleep

I usually took my rest more time than the other. I lay on my bed from 7pm until I fell asleep at 10pm. That's me laying down for 3 hours. But, I actually do a lot of other stuff rather than sleeping. I mostly arrange cloth to sell online through social media.

I have an online thrift store clothing, so I have a lot of stuff to think about rather than my problem. So resting would really help me, to be more productive the next day, in addition to my mind being fresher. 

When you feel stress, try to rest. Stress leads to tiredness, that's why we feel like sleeping. If we think too much, then the stress will overpower us. You in control of your body, not the emotion. 

stress management techniques

5. Avoid Smartphones and Social Media

It's okay to not playing smartphones or social media, we can enjoy nature stuff out there. Most of us feel stress due to our insecurity. How does social media make you feel insecure? Maybe you see your friend traveling around the world, some friend updates their photo eating at a 5-star restaurant. Then you suddenly have a thought, why can't I be like them?

Why are there seem so happy? Why they have a lot of money? They look happy in the photo. We sometimes update some of our photos for memory purposes on social media. We show you, what we wanted you all to see. But did you see our feeling by looking through those photos?

As an example, she was eating at a 5-star restaurant, but she was also thinking about how all the food is not that good and she wastes a lot of money there. 

We will never be happy if we always compare ourselves with other people. I always told myself this, "Be easy on yourself". Sometimes I treat myself too hard, that I begin to feel stress because

6. Make a habit of smiling and being grateful

The attitude of gratitude will change our way of thinking. 

Even if you could not smile, just smile. Fake it, until you make it. Smiling can trick your brain into happiness. Try to think of 3 stuff that you thought you should be happy and grateful for; do this more often it helps your mind to remain calm and the body release stress naturally.

There are a lot of things we can be grateful for; such as we woke up this morning. We still have a healthy body and a peaceful mind. Think of all the little things that we do today, smile, and be grateful that we are still alive.

stress management techniques

7. Do activities that may eliminate overthinking

After I begin my online thrift store cloth, my mind focuses on business more rather than my own problem. I need to sell this, I need to promote my business daily, I need to do this and do that.

It feels stressful a bit, but feedback from a happy customer is really worth it. It is a reward for my hard work. 

Maybe you love to write, then you can express your feeling through writing. It will release your tension little by little. My point is, never sitting, and thinking about stressful stuff.

Here are 7 ways on my stress management techniques. Try the above tips for better mental health and lifestyle. However, if you felt like your mental health getting worse, do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist to get proper treatment, and avoid the impact of more serious mental disorders. You matter and you are loved.

The best solution for someone who hates eating vegetable

I remember the first blog post I wrote about the health benefits or pros and cons of consuming Liquid Chlorophyll. If I'm not mistaken, I published it in 2019? It's been a year apart, and you will never know how much I miss drinking Liquid Chlorophyll.

green drink liqiud chlorophyll

No, it is not delicious. It just tastes like the green color. Hmm, or like the green raw vegetable taste. Can you imagine how it tastes like? However, drinking it ice cold is so refreshing! Never drink it with hot water as it was not recommended. Always drink in cold/ice or room temperature. I bought it at an online shop Shopee. Plus, I fulfilled the requirement to earn a free shipping voucher for buying one bottle of liquid chlorophyll. Of course, it is a good deal for me.

The reason why I didn't buy it earlier is that I thought the price is high. Because the last thing I remember, someone sells it at MYR60. However, I only bought it online for MYR22 + Free Shipping! Both have the same bottle type, the same amount of liquid but different brands. Sounds like a good deal right? It is a great deal! 

Once I received my parcel, I directly mix a bottle cap of liquid chlorophyll into my 250ml of cold water—a bottle cap of liquid chlorophyll equivalence with 2 kilos of vegetables. I mean, like, can you eat 2kilos of vegetables in a day? For someone like me who hates to eats green, this might be the best way to deal with this problem.

healthy green drink liquid chlorophyll

So if you know anyone who hates to eat a vegetable, try to introduce them to Liquid Chlorophyll. Although it doesn't have good taste, we can always be creative to add it to our dessert or drink. Just try to make sure that the chlorophyll taste goes well with your dessert/drink. As an example, try adding it to an Ice blend fruit drink. You can add half of the bottle cap is good enough. 

Do not add too much of it, as we don't want the chlorophyll taste to overpower the dessert's deliciousness. Me daily, I drank almost 3 liters of water. First bottle 1500ml, I add 1 1/2 bottle caps of chlorophyll and mix well. Then I will do the same for my second bottle, which is another 1500ml. If you already made that drink in the morning, try to finish it before evening as drink fresh is always better. 

Also, do not let your drink expose to heat or direct sunlight.

The reason I said this is because, last time, I made this chlorophyll drink and forgot to keep it in the fridge. It was exposed to direct sunlight and heat, causing my chlorophyll to turn into greyish or yellowish-green. Fresh chlorophyll color is dark green, just like vegetables, when the vegetables are exposed to sunlight or direct heat for a long time, causing it to turn color. So once you open the bottle caps of Liquid Chlorophyll, always keep it cool in the fridge to maintain the product's quality.

healthy green drink liquid chlorophyll

Okay, but if you have a friend who likes to eat vegetables. Do you think that he or she can drink chlorophyll and fall in love with the taste? Of course not... I give my friend a try, and she hates it. She said that it tastes like green or moss. Not sure if she ever tries to eat a moss before, but, okay.

So, if you know someone who hates vegetables or this green color stuff. Let them try this healthy green drink liquid chlorophyll. Do let me know the result if she/he would drink it rather than eating the vegetable.

L-CAR9000 Review / Testimonial / What I ate in a week (PART 2)


As per my previous blog post. I decided to try L-CAR9000 for a week. Even the product description says that the result can be seen in 1 -3 days, so I give it a shot.

Based on the product description, eat 1 capsule 15 - 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 capsule 15 - 30 minutes before bed. 

Per capsules contain 9000mg of L-Carnitine, consuming 2 of them is 1800mg. The daily dosage is 3g per day. But as for me, I only took 1 in the morning 15 minutes before breakfast. I didn't eat it at night since I really didn't feel any hunger. 

As I promised!

Day 1

Breakfast: Instant noodles
Lunch: A bag of chip
Dinner: 2 slices of fruit cake

I had to eat that cake tho, cause it's my brother's birthday.

To be honest, I did not feel really hungry. It really helps me suppressing my appetite! I think I drink almost 2 liters that day.

Day 2

Breakfast: Fried rice, an egg, and 3 fishball
Lunch: I ate the remaining fried rice that I didn't finish earlier. #earlysatiety
Dinner: 2 slices of cake, again...

I was feeling early satiety on my breakfast time which is a good thing for me tho. Cause I know I can eat a lot, but after consuming this it really controls my hunger.

However, at night time, I slept at 11 PM and I woke up at 1 AM feeling fresh. I tried to sleep back but I really can't. So I scroll on my social media hoping that I get bored and sleepy from it and then I fell asleep at 3 AM.

Rarely encounter this problem, usually, I had a really good sleep before. Maybe it's because of the product?

Day 3

Breakfast: Instant noodles
Lunch: 1 boiled egg
Dinner: Another 1 boiled egg

Before consuming this, I usually eat rice with some side dishes. But eating 1 boiled egg really satisfies my hunger.

However, I really feel thirsty and a dry throat. That day maybe I drink 2.5 liters I guess.

Day 4

Breakfast: Rice + Chicken and Pork fried noodles
Lunch: -
Dinner: Rice and onion scallion chicken

I had breakfast twice, my Manager is too kind that he bought me another breakfast. He's the best tho!

Since I had twice breakfast, I didn't eat anything on my lunch break cause I didn't feel hungry. But I do feel thirsty.

Day 5

Breakfast: -
Lunch: 1 packet of fried banana chips
Dinner: Rice and chicken

Not skipping breakfast purposely, was rushing to the office. Also, I do not feel really hungry, so most of the time I drink water.

Day 6

Breakfast: -
Lunch: Instant noodle and egg
Dinner: -
Snack: Banana

I didn't have breakfast again, got some personal thing to do. 

Still feeling thirsty, so I still drink a lot of water.

Day 7

Breakfast: -
Lunch: Fried rice
Dinner: Rice + Chicken

Again skipping breakfast cause some personal things. 




New product for me, a new review for you! My sister bought a bottle (Thailand Product) of this for MYR55 = USD 13.24, but she gave me cause she wanted me to try this. She told me to read more about L-Carnitine because I think everyone should know what we're eating right?

So, I found a lot of information on the internet about L-Carnitine (L-CAR9000). I'm not gonna copy-paste all the info here, I will try to explain it from what I understood and do a little comparison.

L-CAR9000 SUPER DIET SLIMMING, L-Carnitine Review

  • L-Carnitine helps with weight loss, by moving your fatty acids into your cells to be burned for energy.

  • The daily dosage for L-Carnitine approximately is 3g per day. But, this product contains 9g per capsule. It might have a stronger effect on us and per day we eat 2 capsules which means 18g of L-Carnitine. 

  • What happens when you took more than the recommended daily dosage? It may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizure and fishy body odor.

  • L-Carnitine is LIKELY SAFE to be consumed for up to 12 months. BUT, with the right dosage. 

  • It helps with suppressing appetite

Knowing this info is enough for me since I really wanted to try it!


Product Description

  • Excessive fat burning
  • Burn carbohydrates
  • Burn excess sugar

Commonly for L-Carnitine capsules only contain 500-2500mg, but with L-CAR9000, L-Carnitine content has a very high dose of 9000mg, It is best suited to treat obesity.

The effect can be seen in as little as 1 - 3 days. Be sure to drink plain water at least 3 liters a day as L-CAR9000 products are very strong.


Consume 1 capsule 15-30 minutes before breakfast and 1 capsule 15-30 minutes before bedtime.

Sounds convincing to you? I said yes, it convinced me!

Oh wait, I will write this in my next post. I will try this for a week first, then I will write some reviews. 

Since in the product description it said that the result can be seen in 1 - 3 days. I will give it a week if it really does help with the weight issues. I mean, I'm not saying that I will lose 10kg in a week, but if it can suppressing my appetite than I believe this product really helps!

Part 2 of this post will be up next week! Which is 24 November 2019!

I always knew she had a hair-fall problem because I noticed her hair is getting thin. She tried other product such as B-Vitamin before, sadly the product didn't suit her.


Luckily, after a few reading on the internet and advertising that she saw, she decided to buy this and didn't even regret it. She even said she's going to buy this more since she really loves this product. 

Maybe I should give it a shot too right?

Since it is kinda hard to find some product review these days. I hope this might help you to consider to buy it or not.

 For me, it's a big YES if you want to try this. 

I wrote this review after my sister consumed it for a month. Maybe I will write more about this. Since the product is also for skin and joint. 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng and White Fungus


Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

Bird nest has been consumed by many people and it is one of the delicacies in Chinese cuisine. It contains protein, anti-aging properties, collagen, amino acid and minerals which is essential for our health. So, I decided to try it since it is also good for the skin. I mean, it has a lot more benefits than this, that is why the price is also expensive! 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

There are many types of Bird Nest's has been sold out there. Raw or clean bird nest and birds nest drink. Honestly, it is hard to tell how many percentages of birds nest contains in a drink. I bought mine a 70ml bird nest, brand Ecolite which contains below 7% of birds nest. 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

Honestly, if you're going to eat it raw, it tastes like nothing (unflavored jelly) and cleaning a raw bird nest is not a fun thing to do. Maybe that is also one of the reasons why the cleaned bird nest is kinda expensive than the raw nest. 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

By the way, I bought this while on sales so it didn't cost me a lot of money. Per box has 6 bottle 70ml and sorry for the bad photo background. I was just so excited when I received it and directly took a photo without thinking about the background. As you can see, the product is well packed by the supplier! Receive it in a really good condition, worth the money. 

It is not fair to write a review if I only consume 1 box. So I decided I will buy a box or more depending on my budget. If you really wanna have a firm skin you can try Bird Nest. BUT, this is a long term drink. You can't drink it for a month and expect a good result.

As I said earlier, it contains collagen and anti-aging properties. If you have a skin problem surely this can help you solve it. Since I have a box here, I will drink it 2 bottles per week. In a year I guess, I will write another review.

Noted to everyone here, smoking can damage our skin and caused more than a wrinkle. Don't ever smoke and drink Bird Nest, but expecting a good result. Also, NO alcohol. 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

There are 2 types of Bird Nest that I bought from this supplier. Bird nest without ginseng and with ginseng. This product sold out real fast, I wanted the Birds Nest original but I missed the chance. Believe me, a lot of people drink this because of its benefits. 

I bought the Birds nest with ginseng, but I didn't regret it at all. It tastes really good! It is sweet, but not a sweet juice. I can't really explain it, but it tastes damn good. So do not worry if you're going to try this for the first time. Whether with ginseng or without ginseng both have the same benefits.

The ginseng didn't overpower the taste. Because that's what I thought at first. But no, it tastes good and even better if you drink it cold. 

The goodness of the swallow's nest - Ecolite Birds Nest With American Ginseng

Benefits of Birds Nest

  • Improve the kidney system.
  • Anti-wrinkle/aging
  • Eliminate facial wrinkles 
  • Asthma (tired)
  • Treat chronic cough
  • Young people (men and women)

There's a lot more benefit than this! My purpose in consuming Ecolite Birds Nest is for the collagen contains which is good for my skin and anti-aging properties. Oh, and this product is 100% organic and natural. 

Part 2 from this post will be up in a year or a few months, I guess? This is a long term drink, so drinking a box of this and make a review afterward is kinda wrong... 

9 Effective Ways to help a friend or family member with depression


9 Effective Ways to help a friend or family member with depression

Many cases of suicide are not reported, because there are still many who think that suicide is a very taboo thing to talk about in the community and also the family. This thinking makes it difficult for psychologists, psychiatrists, and researchers to gather data and also find solutions to this problem.

In addition to helping ourselves, we need to help those closest to us. Here are some things we can do for them:

9 Effective Ways to help a friend or family member with depression

1. Be a Good Listener

The mistake that often happens is that we hear to respond, not to understand. People who are depressed often don't need our advice, they just want to be heard.

Sympathize with the current situation, be patient, calm and try to accept all the stories they share. Our friends or family are doing the right thing by sharing their stories with us.

We can respond to their stories with "what can I help you with?", "Yes, I understand," or "I'm always here if you need". Tell them that we really care about their condition, and they are not alone.

2. Do not judge

One reason many people are reluctant to talk about their mental state is the fear of being judged. Whatever they have experienced in the past, no matter how bad it is, even though it does not correspond to the moral values ​​that we profess, don't judge them ever.

Take the time to listen to what they are feeling. It is not a matter of what they have done, but rather about how they feel about it and also what they think of themselves.

It has often been proven that bullies can greatly trigger suicide. The effects of bullying on the feelings and qualities of the victim are very destructive. They will feel worthless, unloved, undesirable.

Put ourselves in their position. Do we want to be embarrassed in public? If not, then don't do it to other people.

4. Don't Comparison with Others

Saying that you know how people feel depressed will not help at all. It's the same as making comparisons with other people. "If she can, why you can't?" This will only make people with depression more desperate. 

The reason is, people have their own capacity in controlling emotions and solving problems, so you can't equate one problem with another.

If you think being tough will scare depressed people, this just won't work. For example, you threaten to leave because you are impatient with your depressed friend's condition. This is not useful because it will only make them feel worse and depressed.

6. Be patient

The key to assisting depressed people is patience. By being patient, you indirectly tell that whatever happens, you will always be on the side of a friend or family member who is depressed.

Accompanying people with depression is like walking on eggs, one wrong step will certainly make things worse. As a solution, being patient with that person is the best gift for them.

If your friend is aware of expert help as a psychologist or psychiatrist, that's a good sign. If something happens, make them feel comfortable so that they will not reluctant to meet with experts, such as to consult directly. Also, make sure you become a person who can be relied on if he tries to hurt yourself or someone else. You need to know emergency numbers, like hospitals.

When someone struggles with depression, he will not just tell stories and then forget the problem. Try to empathize or fully understand their feelings. Maybe you do not experience firsthand what they experienced, but try to position yourself if you experience it.

Even so, try not to be carried away with emotions, such as crying or howling. Remember, you are there to calm, not just make the atmosphere worse. In addition, with you to follow emotions are the same as the health of your soul disturbed.

9. Take good care of yourself because dealing with depressed people is not easy

Unlike your friends who are easily cheerful and happy, people with depression sometimes make you tired and frustrated. In essence, make sure you are safe and sound physically and mentally before helping your friend. If you feel tired, give yourself time to be alone and improve your mood. You should know that you can't be by their side all the time. 

You also need to live your life and make yourself happy.

You definitely want your depressed friend to feel happiness and laughter again. However, you need to know that it won't all happen instantly. Need consistent and slow effort. You need to be sincere in doing this business. Let's just say you are doing charity for humanity.
