HOW MINDFUL MUSLIM APPLICATION HAS HELPED TO ALLEVIATE MY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS 
THIS IS MY STORY!

Hey All ๐Ÿ’•

While writing and sharing this entry for you today, I must admit that this is the most difficult entry I have had to experience throughout my blogging days. But why, you ask? Because I have to genuinely open up and show my true self to all of you something that I've kept by myself and to my loved ones. 

My own mental health issues. I rarely speak or discuss or openly admitting to the public that I have this glitch of imperfection in my life. Writing this is hard, truly unimaginative for me to be reckless, showing my flaws to others. 

When it comes to this unforgiving world, full of judgemental eyes and disapproving society even in the modern age. I, who though people see as brave, strong or tough as nails woman, deep inside feels so petitely, petrified and reluctant to share my frequent frantic, out of control absence of mind to even the closes people in my life, let alone sharing it with the rest of the world. 

I feel naked. I feel ashamed. I feel as if I have wronged everyone in my life. And I am crying, bursting into tears forcing myself to continue with this writing even though struggling to think of words to make sentences for.

But I have to do this. Not because it's supposedly a job for me and I am obliged to do so. I can just skip my feelings and just write whatever simple disconnecting characteristic review. But NO! I had made up my mind and I chose to pour my heart out. I believe that it is TIME for me to share my true self. 

People may distance themselves from me when they discovered this and I will not force anyone to stay if they feel the need to leave. I have made a point in my life that I will no longer hide nor stay afraid in the shadows just because people do not want to educate themselves or associate with a person who has mental health issues. 

WHAT IS MENTAL ILLNESS?

Having mental health doesn't mean a person is straight-jacket crazy. 

Mental illnesses are health conditions that may impact a person's thoughts, perceptions, feelings and behaviours. or a combination of these. Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities. 

Mental illness is common. 

Mental illnesses are most generally associated with stress. The relationship between stress and mental illness is complex, but it is known that stress can worsen an episode of mental illness. Most people can manage their mental illness with medication, counselling or both.
Mohd Akhtaar - Founder of Mindful Muslim App - Review

LISTS OF MOST COMMON MENTAL ILLNESS 

There are lists of common mental health issues and mental illnesses such as Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Paranoia, Schizophrenia, Eating Disorder, Obsessive-compulsive disorder, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Dissociation and dissociative disorders, Bipolar affective disorder and more. 

Do you know that children can suffer from mental illness too? Its called  Behavioural and Emotional disorders in children. Common behaviour disorders in children include oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
====================================================

MY UNPREDICTED LIFE

I am suffering 3 out of the above lists. Depression, Anxiety and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.  I've suffered this since I was a teenager. Life wasn't colourful rainbows but I've made do to survive my youth. I've managed to cope and hide my mental health, just because I didn't want to be treated differently by family and society at that time. The stigma of mental health. 

Throughout my young adult life, I've suffered a lot from sexual harassment, physical and mental abuse but after the passing of my loved ones. 4 people in consecutive years. That really hit me hard but yet, I've swallowed my pride and tried to move on. But not until a year that struck the core in me when I've experienced a bad relationship with my previous partner. I've had bad, dark thoughts to harm myself. 

I have checked myself to the nearest hospital for a mental diagnosis from professional help and that, resulting in me having PTSD that lead to mild depression and anxiety at that time. I've had to take medicine and had to forgo counselling for quite some time.  I've had to endure all this by myself with no help and no resources other than my counselling session.  All these happened without anyone knowing. You see how good I am at keeping secrets? ๐Ÿ˜
Mohd Akhtaar - Founder of Mindful Muslim App - Review
Story cut short. I was off med after 2 years as I was showing good signs and improvement. I've stopped counselling too. I got busy with my career and got married. Had my 1st born and life was wonderful even though there's still ups and downs. 

But to my dismay, after giving birth to my 2nd born. I've suffered Post-Partum Depression that led up to my Anxiety coming back again.  It wasn't easy but I have persevered it against all odds. And now, finally, my family knew I've suffered mental illness since I was young. though some are still ignorant, at least they now know the reason why I've been so distant and rebel in my younger years. I wasn't in a good place. 

I've consulted a physiatrist and I was told that my illness is still manageable and was not needed to be prescribed any medication. I'll have my episodes, at odds time but I can still successfully emerge from it within a day or two. 

I'll try to listen to music, read some motivational books, busy myself with anything like house chores or playing with the kids or just sleep it off. But it's really hard to fall asleep or take a rest when your mind is taking over your emotion. You try to shut your eyes but your brain is still working. 

Over-thinking. Repeating things over and over again. The 'what-ifs, should have been' dilemma will circle around your head repetitively.  You can't help but keep on thinking. Not until your mind let you go according to its time. Tired but can't sleep. Which leads to insomnia and sleep deprivation. 

Nothing helps actually. I've secluded, sheltered
 and retreated myself every single time I hit an episode and hoping that I will not succumb to my inner demons.  

And with the current pandemic and MCO situation arising, my stress level has been increasing day by day.  As much as my husband helps around with the house chores and kids whenever he can, I am still suffocating and barely making it every single day. 
Mohd Akhtaar - Founder of Mindful Muslim App - Review
Therefore, as I am still searching for my inner peace and wishing that something can help me ease my sleepless nights. And thankfully, someone had shared with me a mobile application that can help me through the night without feeling unpleasant and without the help of medications. It's called MINDFUL MUSLIM APPS

Fighting the stigma of mental health issues.


Have you heard these phrases before or were you the one who spew these words to someone who has had mental health issues before? 

'If you have mental health, you are a bad Muslim. You don't pray enough. You don't worship Allah enough. You don't Du'a or zikir enough'

Mashallah. Whatever it is, It is now the time for all of us to educate ourselves and be supportive to the ones that we know are struggling with their own self. 

Mental Health is overlooked in Malaysia, it's taken a toll on Malaysians because of Covid and the numbers are awfully increasing daily.

My impression of Mindful Muslim? I wish this had come early in my younger years to help me cope with these anxieties but Alhamdulilah good things will eventually come and it's time for me to indulge, enjoy and recuperate myself with a better inner peace and better guidance.

Thank you Mindful Muslim Apps. Thank You Mr Mohd Akhtaar. This is definitely a lifesaver.  Keep up the great work and continue supporting people with Mental Health Issues. I hope this can help my fellow Muslim Mental Health survivors out there as much as it has helped me.

nur farahana dengan ibunya, zarina zakaria

Bimbang dengan keadaan ibu berdepan dengan dua masalah kulit seperti kayap dan kulit melecur sejak beberapa bulan lalu, pelajar di sebuah politeknik ibu negara jadi tidak senang duduk.

Itulah yang dirasai anak bongsu enam beradik, Nur Farahana Arshat, 22, terhadap situasi tidak menyenangkan dialami ibunya,

Zarina Zakaria yang kini berusia 57 tahun.

Sebagai anak, Nur Farahana yang berasal dari Kedah sampai tahap buntu memikirkan solusi yang boleh dicari demi menyenangkan hati ibunya.

Hinggalah dia tidak semena mena melihat iklan produk Saapuu keluaran Mawar Shazni Sdn Bhd di Facebook yang didakwanya penuh dengan mukjizat dan keajaiban dengan izin-Nya.

"Insiden tertumpah kuah laksa yang panas menggelegak di bahagian kakinya. Ini antara pengalaman memeritkan ibu saya kerana sampai tak senang duduk dan meraung.

"Ketika insiden itu terjadi, ibu saya menjerit dan seperti tak tentu arah. Solusi pantas, saya ambil minyak masak dan disapu di bahagian yang terkena kuah laksa itu. Bagaimanapun sakit yang ditanggung beransur seketika.


"Lama kelamaan, bahagia melecur itu jadi seperti gelembung besar. Kalau terkena air masa mandi contohnya memang terasa pedih. Lama juga ibu menanggung kesakitan. 

Tapi sejak mencuba Saapuu, perubahan ketara mula kelihatan dalam tempoh masa 10 hari penggunaannya," katanya.

Kata Nur Farahana lagi, selepas hilang sengsara kulit melecur, ibunya tiba tiba diserang kayap di bahagian perut pula.

5 EFFECTIVE DIGITAL MARKETING TACTICS FOR A HANDICRAFTS BUSINESS

 5 Effective Digital Marketing Tactics for a Handicrafts Business

Hey all ๐Ÿ’œ

Do your friends keep saying how great your homemade jewellery is? It is time you thought of making good money from your hobby. Many handicraft makers miss out on good opportunities because they lack effective digital marketing strategies.


It is no longer enough to post your pieces on Instagram and expect your DMs to start pinging with order inquiries. You must actively expand your audience using a mix of effective digital marketing tactics.

What are some of these workable tactics you can use to make your handicrafts business more profitable?

Start With Beautiful Photography 

Today’s social media spaces are heavy with visual content. Your handicrafts must stand out with high-quality photos and videos. The key to setting yourself apart is showing your quality craftsmanship. High-resolution photos allow your audience to pick out details.  

It is also a good idea to generate content that tells a story. People looking for handicrafts also look for items that are sustainable for the environment. For example, someone looking at granite cemetery vases will want to know if the quarrying process leaves gaping holes or stone miner refills and rehabilitates exhausted quarries. Showing a sustainable process sets you apart.

Use  Facebook  Collection Ads 

Just like the name says, Facebook’s collection ads are good for showcasing a collection of items. They are good for grabbing attention in a fast-swiping environment like Instagram. You have one primary video or photo and three smaller ones.  

Facebook makes it easy to create a collection with templates for different purposes. You can make ads that are easier to convert your audience. There is a template for showing your catalogue and a template to help you tell your brand’s story. You can create  Facebook and Instagram ads on the same platform.

Sell on Google Shopping 

Google shopping is an underutilized gem because of its great search intent. Unlike social media platforms where people ‘accidentally’ come across items,  someone searching for a ‘Quilted bedspread’ is likely to take a high interest if one shows up in the results. 

Google shopping offers very competitive costs, which translates to higher ROIs in your marketing campaigns. The advantage of using Google shopping is the boost your webpage gets in- visibility and rank. 


social media platform to boost homemade business

Become Active on Pinterest 

Pinterest is the most active platform for people in the art and hobbies space. It is also a powerful search engine. Therefore, any serious handicrafts seller should invest space in establishing a vibrant presence on this platform. 

Pinterest users are in a demographic of active online shoppers for handicrafts and fashion items.  34% of Pinterest users are 30-49 years old, and 38% are 50-64 years old. You cannot reach this demographic group very well on other social media platforms. 


social media platform to boost homemade business

Use Micro-Influencers 

Influence marketing is very effective in marketing fashion items. But influence marketing is gradually leaning toward the use of micro-influencers, people who have  500- 3,000  connections. These influencers are more effective because most of the people in their circles are personally known to them. Their endorsement does not come out like outright marketing. Instead, they can nudge their audiences more subtly. 

There is a large market for high-quality handicrafts. But craftspeople have to embrace effective digital marketing tactics. Getting your digital strategy right is the hard part. After that, your handicrafts business takes off in leaps and bounds. 


    Well, that's all for now! Thanks for reading my blog !! I hope you've enjoyed it!

Have a wonderful day and always be happy!!
