The Benefits of Amla

Want to look and feel healthy inside and out? Here is the secret to my optimum health…..

I’ve been using the amla powder for a while now. I just wanted to make sure this is actually a ‘supper food’ as it claims to be before recommending to anyone else.

What is Amla?

Amla is called an ‘Indian gooseberry’ in English, but widely known as amla or amlaki in Urdu and Hindi as the it’s grown mainly in India and Pakistan. Amla is known as the powerhouse of nutrients.

Here are some of the benefits of amla:

  • Cure anaemia due to high iron content
  • Amazing for colds and flu because it is loaded with vitamin C
  • Super tonic for your scalp and hair
  • It stabilises you blood sugar
  • High in fibre

Best way to consume Amla

The best way to consume the amla is to have it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It is better to have it as fresh amla juice to get the maximum benefits.

However, it is not always possible to get the fresh fruit, so the next best thing is the amla powder. I tend to buy the amla powder and take a full teaspoon first thing in the morning with a glass of water.

It is an uncommon balance of sweet, sour, pungent and bitter flavours but nothing unbearable. I actually quite like the after sweet taste. You can also buy it as a dry amla from any Indian/Pakistani grocery store.

As the fruit is very hard to grind at home and doing so, I had broken my grinder once! Therefore, I tend to buy it in a powder form. You just need to make sure it’s the pure amla powder; no other ingredients are added to it.

If you are unable to find it in powder form, I’d get the dry amla and soak it overnight. I’d take the stones out in the morning before blending it in the smoothies.

For those who are not too keen in its strong sour taste, you can consume it this way. I used to have it like that when I first started to consume it.

End of the day the choice is yours.

Skin, hair and nails is flawless

My skin looks flawless and vibrant from within. I truly believe that the consumption of amla powder has really enabled my even skin tone.

The amla fruit is really good for the nails as its high is calcium.

I also apply the amla paste to my hair roots which enables the hair growth, stops the hair falling, keeps the original colour, conditions and moisturises the scalp.

I hope this amazing super fruit is also beneficial for you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have in the section below.

Now go get some Amlas and try it out 🙂

How to Self-Motivate Yourself to Achieve ANY Goals in Life

We can spend up to half of our working day going through our email inbox, making to-do lists, feeling frustrated and unproductive.

Self Motivation is the Key

A key part to achieving anything in life is building a self-motivation AND the only thing, which contributes to achieving your goals is the self motivation.

Self motivation is the first stepping stone to achieving any goal in life. In order to build the self motivation, we first need to consider how big and significant our goal is.

The goal has to be big and powerful enough to create self-assurance and self-confidence to go after it and smash every bit of the success out of it!

If you have a clear vision about where you are heading. The process itself will motivate you to stay consistent and fulfill your desired vision.

Once you have established that the goal is clear and achievable. It is important to be aware of any set backs you may encounter through the process.

Therefore, being resilient, believing in yourself and in your qualities and positive self talking often to yourself that;

“This one hurdle is not going to stop me from achieving my goals and dreams.”

When planning to achieve a specific goal, consider the following 5 steps:

1. How specific is my goal? Did I consider even the smaller steps?

As taking every tiny detail into consideration will enable to plan the process at every small step, which consequently will help you get closer to your goals and dreams.

2. How important is it?

Your goal has to be bigger than yourself in some cases to create that burning desire which will enable to move forward leaps and bounds. Remember to make it fun and interesting as this will help you keep going.

3. How committed are you?

You need to be very honest with yourself and giving yourself a regular feedback will help you analyse the situation and modify the process if needed.

4. How practical is it to achieve this?

Always be aware of the complexity of it – break down the process even further if required. Remember the smaller the steps the more likely they are achievable, rather than bombarding yourself with a massive chunk of work and get bog down with it.

5. What is the time limit of achieving it?

As you plan the process, it is useful to set time limit to each step and set a deadline for the over all achievements. Go with your intuition but remember to make it exciting. You can even visualise your outcome of how you would feel and how your life would be like once you have achieved this goal!

Urgent/important Matrix tool

When planning for the process, it may be useful to use tools like urgent/important matrix to help you plan even further by prioritising your tasks.

The urgent/important matrix will enable you to see the bigger picture of your overall objectives. It’s totally your choice if you want to hand write it or do it digitally.

One of the benefits of this matrix is that it enable you to focus on a single step at a time. This helps reduce stress and anxiety and enables you to focus on the most important objective at a time.

The urgent/important matrix will also help you to see if you need to outsource any of the tasks.

I hope this post has opened your eyes to your true potential
– GET SELF-MOTIVATING 🙂
