Theme for IWD 2019
8 March is International Women's Day. The theme for International Women's Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter. This theme is a call-to-action to drive gender balance across the world.
In this modern day, everyone has a part to play -- from grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history. The world is expecting balance. We are celebrating gender equality. Balance helps drive a better world for all.
Let's Build a Gender-Balanced World
Balance is not a women's issue. It's a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, a gender-balance of employees....
Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
Wellaholic Supports IWD and Gender Balance
At Wellaholic, we make it a point to recruit both females and males into our workforce. Opportunity is given to both genders, and we are happy to have Joyce, our Head of Services, leading the charge since we were founded in 2016.
March Brings IWD Wellaholic Promotions
Wellaholic has been supporting IWD on an annual basis. As part of the IWD celebrations centered on the theme #BalanceforBetter, Wellaholic will be running our IWD promotions all through March. As aligned with the theme #BalanceforBetter, the promotions are open to both genders. Let's work together to ensure gender balance, equality and diversity.
Adapted from The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss, this article is for people who has a desire to lose weight, to sleep better, and of course, to have great sex!
Learn from the research of others
Instead of testing and trying new methods, you can rely on research that has been done by medical pratitioners and the world's best athletes.
Start with the Minimum Effective Dose (MED)
The first thing to learn is the importance of the Minimum Effective Dose. Created by Arthur Jones, a leading specialist in exercise science. Based on his research, he identified the minimum amount of effort required to produce the desired outcome. Interestingly, anything more than the MED would be affect the end result in a negative way.
Based on this, Brian MacKenzie, a triathlete and Ironman competitor, changed his training schedule. Using the MED method, he switched from his usual 30 hours-per-week routine to a 6.5 hours-per week routine. Result? He was placed fourth in the most intense race in the world.
Losing Weight the Harajuku Moment
One of the proven methods to lose weight is the slow-carb diet. Within 30 days of using it, the author was able to drop 9kg without any exercise. There are a few rules to abide by:
1. Stop eating white carbohydrates. This includes all kinds of rice, bread, noodles, potatoes, pasta, cereal, etc.
2. Keep eating the same meals. There is a small selection including main proteins (eggs, beef, pork, chicken breast or thigh), legumes (beans and lentils). Included too are vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, peas, green beans, etc.)
3. Avoid drinking calories. Avoid milk, soy milk, fruit juices and soft drinks. Instead, drink water, including unsweetened tea or coffee. Red wine is okay in moderation, but always keep away from beer.
4. No fruits. This is because fruits contain fructose, which is a type of sugar.
5. Give yourself a cheat day. This is because binge-eating once a week increases your metabolism and stimulates fat loss. (!!)
To recall the Harajuku Moment, read this excerpt. Here’s how Chad recounts the psychological shift that empowered his impressive physical transformation :
“I was in Tokyo with a group of friends. We all went down to Harajuku to see if we could see some artistically dressed youngsters and also to shop for fabulous clothing, which the area is famous for. A couple of the people with us were pretty fashionable dressers and had some specific things in mind they wanted to buy.
After walking into shops several times and leaving without seriously considering buying anything, one of my friends and I gave up and just waited outside while the others continued shopping. We both lamented how unfashionable we were. I then found myself saying the following to him: ‘For me, it doesn’t even matter what I wear; I’m not going to look good anyway.’ I think he agreed with me. I can’t remember, but that’s not the point.
The point was that, as I said those words, they hung in the air like when you say something super-embarrassing in a loud room but happen to catch the one randomly occurring slice of silence that happens all night long. Everyone looks at you like you’re an idiot. But this time, it was me looking at myself critically. I heard myself say those words and I recognized them not for their content, but for their tone of helplessness. I am, in most of my endeavors, a solidly successful person.
I decide I want things to be a certain way, and I make it happen. I’ve done it with my career, my learning of music, understanding of foreign languages, and basically everything I’ve tried to do. For a long time, I’ve known that the key to getting started down the path of being remarkable in anything is to simply act with the intention of being remarkable. If I want a better-than-average career, I can’t simply ‘go with the flow’ and get it.
Most people do just that: they wish for an outcome but make no intention-driven actions toward that outcome. If they would just do something most people would find that they get some version of the outcome they’re looking for. That’s been my secret.
Stop wishing and start doing. Yet here I was, talking about arguably the most important part of my life— my health— as if it was something I had no control over. I had been going with the flow for years. Wishing for an outcome and waiting to see if it would come. I was the limp, powerless ego I detest in other people. But somehow, as the school nerd who always got picked last for everything, I had allowed ‘not being good at sports’ or ‘not being fit’ to enter what I considered to be inherent attributes of myself.
The net result is that I was left with an understanding of myself as an incomplete person. And though I had (perhaps) overcompensated for that incompleteness by kicking ass in every other way I could, I was still carrying this powerlessness around with me and it was very slowly and subtly gnawing away at me from the inside.
Advanced Occam's Protocol Method
An advanced form involves weightlifting exercises. This includes the overhead squat, where you perform ten squats and lift a barbell at the same time. To do so, you need to position both of your feet further apart than shoulder width. Make sure your knees are bent about 45 degrees and your thighs are parallel to the floor.
You can refer to this guide by the "fourhourbodycouple".
The secret to the workout is in the 5/5 cadence. This means in every workout you do, you move in a 5 seconds up, 5 seconds down motion. This ensure constant maximum load on your muscles at all times. This will eliminate momentum that most weight lifters use to help them finish their sets. The reward of doing 5/5 cadence? You only do ONE set. That's right. One set. In that one set, you must hit 7 repititions, but if you can do more, do more. It's one set to failure. 10 minutes after each workout, you'll want to do more. Don't do more. Just stick to the same two exercises in each workout.
WORKOUT A: (Machine Option)
Workout (A) consists of two primary lifts + (optional) abdominal exercises from “six minute Abs”
I. Close-Grip Supinated (palms facing you) Pull Down x 7 reps (5/5 count)
II. Machine Shoulder Press x 7 reps (5/5 count)
III. Two Abdominal Exercises from “Six-Minute Abs”Movement #1: Thy Myotatic Crunch
1.Start with your arms stretched overhead as high as you can. Keep your arms next to your ears for the entirety of the exercise.
2. Lower your arms under control 4 seconds until your fingers touch the floor.
3. Pause at the bottom for 2 seconds.
4. Rise under control and pause in the upper fully contracted position for 2 seconds.
5. Repeat for a total of 10 repetitions.
Movement # 2: The Cat Vomit Exercise (Optional)
1. Get on all fours (arms and legs) and focus your gaze either directly under your head or slightly in front of you. Do not arch your back or strain your neck, as this will cause undue stress.
2. Forcefully exhale from your mouth until air is fully expelled.
3. Hold your breath and pull your belly button upward toward your spine as hard as you can, for a target of 8-12 seconds.
4. Inhale fully through the nose after the 8-12 second hold.
We have reached the end of Part I. We will cover Part II and Part III next.

Excerpts from Serene's blog entry
Who doesn’t want to have smooth, hair-free skin? The last I checked, even men want it too. I, on the other hand belong to the category of individuals who have an abundance of hair growing in places I rather not have them growing and a lack of hair in places I wish they’ll sprout. I’ll leave that to your imagination. And despite the fact that the ‘let your hairy armpits be’ and all campaigns related seems to be trending of late, I’m nowhere ready for that yet. Moving on…
As far as getting rid of bodily hair is concerned, I’ve tried it all. Shaving, waxing and even Intense Pulse Light (IPL) . But it was only a matter of time before I lost patience with each of them for one reason or the either. It took just too many cuts and bled into my schedule and pocket literally - especially the IPL which isn’t the most affordable of options.
I resorted to a combination of shaving and waxing for the longest of time, but recently grew impatient with it again the longer my appointment list grew. So I searched for alternate options online and came across the Wellaholic Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology. I’ve not looked back since and here’s why :
The Super Hair Removal uses ‘in-motion’ technology that massages and gently heat the skin gently using low energy, high frequency waves that significantly reduces the pain of traditional IPL/waxing methods. In fact, I’ve never felt any pain in any of the sessions.
2. Suitable For All Skin Types Tones
While traditional IPL with relatively small amounts of melanin can remain relatively unharmed with IPL, research is increasingly indicating that the traditional IPL can damage darker skin tones by causing temporary/permanent skin darkening or lightening. This is something I definitely pay attention to being brown skinned as it will be tragic to end up looking like a spotted hyena - especially when in the pursuit of beauty. Since the Super Hair Removal treats the stem cells through low energy, high frequency waves, damage to the integrity of the skin tone is avoided altogether.
3. Affordability & Flexibility
One of greatest plus points of the Wellaholic SHR is it’s affordability. By giving customers the option of purchasing unlimited packages, they have the leeway to go for as many sessions as they need and also treat as many body parts as they desire. Wellaholic even has a Lifetime Maintain Mode for members to receive for maintenance treatments after their package has expired, if needed, at low price points to make it sustainable for them. How thoughtful!
Does Your Face Spark Joy?
People all over the world are now decluttering their lives, thanks to Netflix series "Tidying up with Marie Kondo." Marie, a bestselling author from Japan, helps to get different families to sort out and declutter. This includes clearing and sorting out their piles of clothing, books and even treasured items.
"Sparking Joy" is an often repeated term on the series, as Marie proclaims her mission using her konmari method to help spark joy in the world.
As we move from sorting out our homes, it is time to take a look at the mirror; have a close look at your face under bright light. Ask yourself, does your face spark joy? Are you truly satisfied with your appearance? Or are there lines and blemishes that you can clear away instead?
Let us help! In this article, we will share 7 methods to help you take great care of your skin, on a daily basis. It's time to spark joy with your face!
7 Methods to Help Your Face Spark Joy
1. Alway Take Specific Care for Each Skin Type
To take the best care for your skin, always make sure to choose products specially designed for your skin type. Dry skin requires different care from oily skin. A wrong match will cause either flaking (from over drying) or pimples (from oil build-up and thereafter bacterial infection).
So what are the best products for the various skin types?
Combination Skin - choose a gentle, balancing formula that prevents both irritating and dryness. Use a hydrating serum, and quench your skin with a lightweight liquid or gel lotion.
Oily Skin - choose a gentle and soft-free cleanser as harsh formulas can cause oil overproduction. An exfoliator helps dissolve pore-clogging sebum and wash away dead cells. We recommend our Retinol Serum in this case. Oily skin still needs to be hydrated, hence choose a lightweight, water-grabbing cream or gel.
Dry Skin - choose cleansing oils and lotsion which help to remove dirt and make up without stripping away moisture. Apply a hydrating serum or essence to quench skin with a boost of water. We recommend our Royal Jelly Essence in this case. For moisturising, a cream with protective ingredients like oils or shea butter will help to keep the water locked in.
Normal Skin - Remove dirt and makeup with a mild cleanser that will not disrupt the skin's pH balance. Exfoliate 2 or 3 times a week with a AHA, BHA or retinoid for a fresh, glowing complexion. We recommend our 100% concentrate of Retinol Serum. A light or medium weight lotion with emollients like almond oil will help to retain hydration.
2. Always Pay Special Attention to the Fragile Areas
Certain parts of the face are usually more fragile, such as the areas around the eyes (eyelids, eyebags, etc.), lips, as well as the forehead. They need special care. Treat these areas with a rich moisturiser and also specific serums.
3. Pay Even More Attention to the Eyes
A point to note is that the eye contour skin is about ten times finer and more fragile than the rest of the skin on the face. Hence, never over-exfoliate. When removing make-up, always choose a specific routine that will not damage this sensitive area.
From your 30s onwards, you may begin to see some signs of aging around your eyes. This includes fine lines and textual changes. A retinol-based treatment will help to increase the cell-turnover adn resurface your skin overnight.
4. Make-up Removal before Gentle Cleansing
Consider using a pH-neutral make-up remover so as not to overstres your skin. Due to the sensitive skin area, gently cleanse your skin surface to remove the make-up.
5. Exfoliation is Necessary
Exfoliation is always recommended at least once (or twice) a week. This can be done via a facial scrub, though Wellaholic would recommend using both a Diamond Peel. This microdermabrasion procedure will help physically exfoliate the skin. This can be further augmented by a regular Retinol regime. The vitamin-A derivative can do wonders by chemically exofoliating the skin. This helps to keep the complexion clear.
6. Moisturising is also Essential
Keeping the skin moisturised and supple is also essential. This is because the dermis is 15% epidermis and 70% water. With the appropriate daily moisturing skin care, you can then balance the level of water within the skin.
7. Don't Forget Sun Protection!
Use sunscreen every day, even if it is a cloudy day. This is because the UVA and UVB rays can do damage to your skin whether it is a sunny day or a cloudy day. If you are going to be out in the hot sun, apply enough sunscreen at least 15 to 30 minutes in advance. If you are in doubt of which sunscreen to use, try our easy-to-apply Daily Sunscreen.
There you have it! As long as you stick to these 7 key tips and keep to them on a daily basis, we guarantee that your improved appearance will have you smiling from cheek to cheek!
While proteins such as whey are naturally high in BCAAs, it is not the most effective strategy for muscle growth or fat loss. Other reports found that the proteins involved in muscle catabolism ( muscle breakdown caused by exercise ) seemed to be suppressed after BCAA supplementation.
Foods with a high BCAA content, such as whey protein, have been shown to produce higher muscle gains with resistance training.
The combination of BCAAs and resistance exercises results in maximum protein synthesis, because they both trigger what is called the mtorc1 signal path necessary for muscle building.
In addition, since bcaa triggers protein synthesis even in the absence of movement, maintaining lean muscle tissue can maintain metabolism and help prevent fat gain when it is inactive.
People with low protein intake may take BCAA supplements to promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth.
Amino acids are the cornerstones of protein and can be used to prevent fatigue from beginners. Valine is the essential amino acid anathorn for muscle metabolism, tissue repair and proper balance of nitrogen in the body.
In order to maximize your effor and recovery after training for good results, the answer is essential amino acids.
The use of BCAA supplements may prevent protein degradation in some populations where muscle is lost. It is more advantageous to obtain BCAA from complete protein sources because they contain all the essential amino acids.
Hmb, a leucine derivative, prevents muscle damage and increases muscle strength by reducing proteolysis caused by exercises in the muscles and also helps to increase lean body mass.
In a study, female athletes who supplement the arginine had a significant reduction in body fat percentage and an equally significant increase in lean mass, presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine.
Leucine, which is one of the three b. c. ( together with isoleucine and valine ), is particularly responsible for the development of muscle protein synthesis, a process by which muscle tissue is formed.
In addition to maintaining the existing muscle tissue, BCAAs are unique among the amino ones because they can serve as muscle fuel.

BCAA 3000 supports lean muscle building and protein synthesis.
In recent years, branched-chain amino acid supplements have made a comeback in the bodybuilding and fitness communities, and with good reason. There’s more research that supports the use of BCAAs than most other supplements in the market.
BCAA 3000contains Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
Suggested Use: One tablet, taken preferably with water before and/or after training.
Bcaas should also be used as a supplement during any fat loss plan because of the muscle retention effect.
In recent years, BCAAs, in particular leucine, have been found to send signals to the body, informing it of muscle building.
Recent studies have shown that oral lucine activates the mtor, which activates protein synthesis ( muscle growth ) and increases the ability of a cell to produce new proteins ( muscle tissue ).
It is also important to note that, although BCAAs can be used to signal muscle growth, there must be a whole spectrum of amino acids as a basis for muscle growth.
New and exciting research continues to be carried out on BCAAs and their applications for muscle growth, fat loss and performance.
While BCAAs have proven to be beneficial as a muscle tissue building block, their benefits as a signal molecules are only understood.

Concurrently Retinol has the following benefits:
The exfoliation process also works very well with the Elight Facial Collagen Boost process. The radio-frequency and infra-red AfterGlow treatments helps to generate collagen while the Diamond Peel cum Retinol exfoliation helps to remove the outer layer of the skin more quickly, then helping to wear away the lines and spots, thereby accelerating the exposure of the newly created skin.
