If you love beauty and fashion, you may already have or are considering pursuing a career in this industry. One such option is modelling- and why not? As a model, you can be one of the first to debut a new makeup product, accessories, clothes, shoes, hair products, and so on. Likewise, some modelling jobs require you to travel to new places, which can be exciting. With hard work and perseverance, you can land gigs that could boost your financial stability. However, modelling goes beyond the runways, magazines, and photoshoots. It can be stressful sometimes, which can jeopardise your health. The key is to prioritise your well-being while navigating your career. Here are some helpful ways you can consider. 

  • You need sleep to rejuvenate yourself 

Granted, the cosmetic industry has released several beauty products that could give you a flawless look. And while they can cover up a tired face, they can’t give you the energy you need to take on the day. This is why you should not underestimate the importance of good sleep. You should note that having an adequate night’s rest can help you maintain a healthy weight. This is because your body reduces the production of ghrelin, an appetite stimulant. While at it, it increases leptin production, suppressing the need to overeat. Moreover, your brain can relax, allowing you to be in a good mood. This is especially beneficial when you have to be on your feet for a long period. Perhaps you want the best sleep but struggle to do so. If this is the case, consider creating an enduring set of bedtime rituals to help your body adjust to sleep. Skincare routine, regular evening baths, journaling, and so on can work well. Your room’s ambience can also promote sleep, so invest in comfortable bedding, dim your lights, and keep your smart devices away from your room. 

  • Your nutrition is also essential 

Your meals are a non-negotiable part of your health, making it important to prioritise whatever you eat. The goal is to consume a balanced diet of healthy carbs, lean proteins, lots of green veggies, and healthy fats. Combining these meals can give you the energy to power through the day. Likewise, eating well can reduce your desire to eat unhealthy meals, as these can affect your skin by causing premature ageing, inflammation, and acne breakouts. You should also note that knowing how to eat is equally important. Eating three balanced meals daily is what doctors recommend, so keep this in mind. You can also include healthy supplements in addition to your meals; however, ensure you choose the right brands. For instance, products like vegan b12 supplement tablets can increase your vitamin b12 intake while boosting energy. Plus, they are excellent for vegans. 

  • Make time for your social circle 

Like every career, modelling can be tough and sometimes overwhelm you. If this continues for a prolonged period, you may find yourself dealing with mental health issues. Thankfully, your social circle can support you through these times. Hanging out with your friends and sharing your thoughts can provide an outlet for your emotions, improving your mood. Moreover, their encouragement can boost your confidence, which can reflect in your work.

  • Align your life with your values

The first step in living a more purposeful life is to align your life with your values. That way you will find yourself naturally focusing more on the important things. It is easy to follow this step once you have your values and beliefs set because you will naturally flow with what you believe in and repel what you don’t, which would eventually lead to more purpose in your life.

  • Stay true to yourself

It can so easy to find yourself living for the wrong people and things. Staying true to yourself will help you out of toxic fog filled with codependency and people pleasing  patterns, and instead keep you on the right path to self actualisation. When you are true to yourself and your beliefs, there’s no room for anything, and that keeps you living a more purposeful life.

  • Focus on what matters

Like the image says, purpose fuels passion, and focusing on what matters helps you live a life of purpose with clear goals. It is super easy to get distracted in this noisy world thanks to endless interactions online with others. However, focusing more on the important things helps you stay on top of your goals and aspirations, and keeps you ticking things off your to-do list, which is an amazing feeling.

Once you awaken and you get a grip on life, living a purposeful life is relatively easy. You just need to remember balance is key and to stay focused on the things that really matter. Everything else would fall in place in the end naturally. Then, you will start experience a full life filled with passion and purpose.

*Collaborative post.

It is important to communicate effectively in every relationship. Being able to express your thoughts and feelings without getting overly emotional is a superpower that is largely underestimated.

5 Communication Tips for Couples

With daily struggles and life adversities, it has now become even more crucial to communicate properly. If you are dealing with highly emotive issues like trying to have a baby, you will need to be able to communicate properly with your partner to avoid confusion and added stress. Here are 5 tips that may help you communicate effectively –

Stay Calm

For you to express yourself properly, you have to ensure you stay calm. If you are having a conversation and things are beginning to escalate, it is best to step away and have the conversation at a later time when you are both less emotionally charged. When both parties are calm, a productive conversation can be had.

Pick the Right Time

It is best to discuss certain sensitive conversations when you are both in a relaxed state. If you are both struggling to conceive and you want to talk about fertility issues and how to go about trying for a baby, for example, you would not want to discuss that when either party is in a bad mood. This is why the best way to ensure communication lines stay open is to stay calm and pick the right time for certain conversations.

Be Gentle

This links in with the first tip of staying calm but it deserves its own slot because it is super important to be gentle. Being gentle as you communicate reminds you to stay calm and keeps the conversation less emotionally charged which helps communication lines stay open.  Having a gentle tone means your partner would feel less attacked which would help the dialogue stay productive. If you are trying to have a baby and becomes overwhelming, you need to remember to be gentle with yourself and with each other, and express your thoughts and feelings in a gentle manner.

Speak Directly

It is always a good idea to communicate directly. Many people struggle in this area because they have grown up communicating with people indirectly and the thought of being direct with anyone scares them. However, if you want to have healthy communication, you need to learn how to speak directly and politely. Once you make a conscious effort to do this, you would find it gradually becomes your default setting, and you would also notice that you no longer feel any kind of resistance when you do speak honestly.


If you notice that you easily get upset in general, you may benefit from some self-soothing. Conversations are more effective when emotions are balanced. You can self-soothe by having some quality time for yourself, going for a run/walk, reading, soaking yourself in a bathtub, and the like. Focusing on your needs from time to time keeps you balanced enough to communicate with others properly.
