Product of the Week:
Before we say anything, let’s hear what Momina has to say.
I am totally in love with this product. I take it every day after my workout, and it helps me so much in restoring my energy levels and alertness. I also don’t have to worry about my daily protein intake. The herbs in this malt are supposed to provide me with added benefits, as I am only on the first pack of it. I don’t know how that is helping yet, but I do feel that my skin has improved with this and my acne problems have reduced. It is definitely one of the tastiest jams I have ever had. Give it a go!Momina Mathur

PoSH with Amrutam:
Supporting the cause of working women in India, lawyers and women’s rights activists filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court under the banner of Vishaka. The Supreme Court, considering such grave concern, acknowledged the serious legislative shortcoming and acknowledged workplace sexual harassment as a human rights violation under the Constitution of India.
The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal) Act and Rules, 2013 (the PoSH Act) mandates every employer to “provide a safe working environment at the workplace which shall include safety from the persons coming into contact at the workplace”.
Rediscovering Ayurveda x Maria Jose Perez
Speaking for herself, the health crisis Maria had was not because she wasn’t trying to be healthy. It is quite literally the opposite of that! She was intently fasting, detoxing, and eating “healthy”. However, the most important part of the process was missing – being aware of her “self”. While it was Maria’s teachers who helped her come back to her true nature and self, she hopes to do that for others. She is also working to make Ayurveda a more accessible alternative because where she’s living right now, practices like Yoga, Pranayama, and Ayurveda are quite expensive and heavy on the pocket.

We’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like. There are people out there who are struggling, and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with the fact that it’s going to be a bit of a journey.Chrissy Teigen
