Be Kind to Yourself

Overwork, overextending yourself with obligations and a busy family life can lead to stress. It can also deprive you of some much-needed personal time. Setting aside time to relax or to do something enjoyable and nice for yourself can ease stress, make you more productive at work and improve your general mood.

Quiet Time

One reason for writing appointments on your calendar or setting reminders on your phone is to assure that you don’t forget obligations. To assure that you don’t neglect yourself, write quiet time on your schedule. Try making it a daily occurrence. Use that time to read, nap, write, draw, color, take a walk alone or with the dog or do something that is mentally and physically relaxing.

Fun Days

You can be kind to yourself by scheduling in fun days. These days can be used to do whatever makes you happy. A shopping trip, a visit to a local art gallery, attending a concert or movie or any other enjoyable activity can be considered a fun day activity. You might want to use this day to visit someone you haven’t seen in a while. Taking a gift such as an angel wing hoop earrings, a plant, flowers or a special food item to them could be something that makes both of you happy.

Pamper Yourself
There're lots of acts of kindness you can do for yourself to brighten your day, ease your stress or make you feel special. Wearing a piece of jewelry that symbolizes hope, love and faith can inspire and encourage you throughout the day. Picking up some flowers for yourself on your way home can make your house more cheerful and brighten your day. Order a gift basket for yourself. When it arrives, you’ll feel as special as any gift recipient would.

There’s nothing heroic about staying so busy you never have time for yourself. There’s nothing selfish about claiming a portion of a day or week as personal time. Being kind to yourself can have a positive impact on your daily life.

Gaining Empowerment

Whenever like-minded people of good faith come together, good things are sure to follow. This is the thinking behind an ongoing christian women's fellowship group, as these types of groups offer real support and the possibility for inspiration and healing to the women who join them.

Women are wired to nurture and give love to others, it’s part of their innate makeup. Giving all you've got to others can be wearing over time, however, which is why it is so important for women to have a place to share their stories and concerns with others in a place of love and support. A faith-based group for women is especially valuable, as this kind of group can give the ongoing support that is so needed for women in their daily lives.

Support That Continues On Forever

It’s truly amazing how valuable a faith-bases support group can be. A good support group is one that offers nurturing to every person who walks in the door, and offers that support on a long, ongoing basis, without judgement. The truth is that every person has challenges and concerns in their life that they must deal with continually. By having a group to share these concerns with, the person who enters a group will be able to gain support for their own life’s challenges, and offer support to others. All of this is absolutely win-win for all involved. A successful group is an example of the way that positive energy keeps reverberating through the universe, adding strength and positivity the more it is shared.

 If you are a woman who is facing challenges and who needs support in staying in your Christian walk, consider joining an expowerment support group. The love and support you receive there will pay you incredible lifelong dividends.

Launch of Soapful @Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa


 Good day to dear reader and visitor, it's been raining these few days. How are you doing? Yesterday, I attended the launch of Soapful at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa. Everyone has got a busy lifestyle, and do you remembered the last time you stayed at the hotel? Do you bring back the soap that you have used in the hotel room? Usually we left behind the used soap in the hotel room, imagine how many used soaps are left in the hotels and where do the end up, read on to find out. While most hotel soaps - used once or twice - usually end up in landfills.

Sunway Hotels & Resorts has now found a more sustainable way to repurpose used soaps to help communities in need. Yesterday, the hospitality group presented 1,000 bars of repurposed soap to Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Darul Ehsan Malaysia (PKAYDEM), under Yayasan Islam Darul Ehsan (YIDE), to kick start the home's social enterprise project. The Soapful project is a collaboration with various project partners - Ecolab Sdn Bhd, Kinder Soaps Sdn Bhd and the Selangor Youth Community (SAY).
Station 1: Hand Washing Procedure
 At the launch there were set up of demonstration on proper hand washing procedure by Ecolab and experience the method of soap repurposing with Kinder Soaps, together with His Highness Tengku Amir Shah Ibni Sultan Shurafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj, The Crown Prince of Selangor and children from PKAYDEM.

Ecolab demonstarted the proper hand washing procedures during the event, which is an important step before starting the soap making process to ensure no bacteria is passed on, making it safe for personal use. Kinder Soaps Founder, Michelle Ho, then taught PKAYDEM's children the five-step soap repurposing in station set within the hotel. The five-step process involves grating, mashing, melting, molding, cutting and packaging.

Station 1: Hand Washing Procedure
Station 2: Grating the used soap bars in smaller & finer pieces
Station 3: Grated soap is mixed with water and mashed together to form a thick mass
Station 4: Mixture is melted / heated to remove excess water
Station 5: Molding
Station 6: Cutting and Packaging

The repurposed soaps were made from some 100 kgs of leftover soaps from Sunway Hotels & Resort's located in Sunway City - Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Pyramid Hotel and Sunway Clio Hotel, which were collected since July this year. This is good as not only cut down the waste but go green recycle. In this year, this project will include the other five (5) hotels nationwide namely Sunway Putra Hotel, Sunway Velocity Hotel, Sunway Hotel Georgetown, Sunway Hotel Seberng Jaya and The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat.

Ecolab will facilitate the collection of used soaps bars from the hotels, which are then delivered to Kinder Soaps' processing lab to be repurposed into new bars of soap, following stringent standard operating procedures that adhere to safety and environment standards. Kinder Soaps will also be teaching and guiding selected homes on the processes of repurposing used soaps. At the end of the year one-year project, the aim is for the home to be able to produce their own repurposed soaps for personal use and to be sold as part of their social enterprise programmes at charity sales, community markets and other social platforms.

#SunwayForGood #SunwaySoapful project was conceptualised to deliver benefits to the enivronment, society, and the economy in alignment with the hospitality group's commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which aims to drive sustainable progress that leaves no one behind.


The community programme are in line with Sunway's pledge to create a positive and far-reaching impact on the nation under the banner of #SunwayForGood , aligned with Sunway's commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
