5 Tips to 'Move On' from Emotional Distress

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 Sofia Naznim 0 Comments

All of us gone through heartbreak, at least once in our life time. Heartbreak is always not necessarily about when a guy broke your heart because the guy don’t love you anymore or vice versa. You can suffer a heartbreak because of your mom, father, siblings, boss, friends or to make it simple, anyone. 

It is an emotional pain in your heart which happened when you suffer loss or experienced sadness with your loved ones or someone that you care about. It can happen to anyone, man or woman. 

The one thing about heartbreak is the pain really hurts and it is real. Definitely, it is one of the hardest things in life that you have to go through. It is completely normal to undergo this situation at any point of your life. What to do when you encountered such painful feelings? 

Here are some tips that I hope might lessen the pain and make you feel better day by day, and hope time heals the pain.

1) Be pissed (if you are), Cry and Chill
If you are mad, you have the right to be mad, so does when you feel terribly sad, you have the right to cry and let all the sadness out. But just remember to do it good and never harm anyone while you are managing your anger or sadness. 

Try to do it in your room, house, or somewhere that is safe and make you feel comfortable. Don’t do it outside, in public, or while you are driving. You can cry all you want in your room and if you can, take a shower, meditate and sleep. You will feel slightly better when you wake up. In a way, it will help you a little, not much, but little is all you need for a start.

2) It’s the time for your best person in life to show you that they actually care
If you have a best friend, talk to that bestie of yours. Obviously it depends who actually gave you the heartbreak. So if it’s not your bestie, then that is okay. 

Just ensure that you look out for that important person or group of people that really cares for you and nurture you, not try to make you more angry or sad. They should be able to encourage you, not demotivate you. 

Spend quality time with them. Talk and do great activities that can cheer you and make you feel lot better. Go and have some good fun. Treat yourself once in a while. Do what you love the most. Explore and get to know yourself better.

3) Only if your heartbreak involves your ‘ex’
Do not contact your ex again. Once it’s over, it’s over. Rarely, exes can become friends. Even if you keep it professional and ‘just friends’, probably that one party still have feelings for another party. Although they are some instances where people can really do it professionally, it's just rare. 

Once you leave/break up, try to erase all memories (photos, message, emails, etc) related to your ex. The tendency for you to look at your ex/ex’s pictures/messages is high if you keep them. No point in looking back if you already make up your mind to move on, really move on, no turning back.

4) Forgive and forget
Easy said than done, I know. It is never easy to work on this point. Forgiving someone is not easy, especially if that someone really do bad things to you or ruin your life in any way. 

All I can say is try. The more you hold your grudges, the more you remember, the less peaceful you are. The best thing is to erase that person and all memories from your head. Ignore. There are people who can actually do this. Just great.

5) Move on, embrace the present and the future, learn from the past
There’s always a reason why we meet someone in our life. There’s always things to learn from everyone you meet. Sometimes you know the reason tomorrow or when the times come. Sometimes you will never know why. 

Take one step at a time to get to know people. Don’t do bad things that you don’t want others to do unto you. Learn from your past experiences so it will build a better you. Always appreciate your present, enjoy every moment. Think about the future, but never overthink - it kills. We can only predict and prepare for the future. Embrace happiness, be positive and keep positive people in your life.

These 5 important tips are just some guidelines if you faced any relationship problems. I am no expert, these are things that I have learned in life through experiences personally, from others, professionals and good friends. Take the things that you think can help you to be better. 

Hopefully, this article helps any of you to move on towards greatness in life. =)

The Lady in Qipao

Monday, January 30, 2017 Sofia Naznim 2 Comments




Dajia hao ~ Hello everyone ^.^

According to Chinese Zodiac, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the cycle. What's your zodiac animal? Mine is pretty close with the name of my website. Take a smart guess. :)



My husband and I went for a Chinese New Year (CNY) outing and he took some photos of me below, wearing qipao (chipao) in Mandarin, also famously known as cheongsam in Cantonese. The ladies usually wear cheongsam during their Chinese New Year gathering which symbolize as their traditional dress and iconic symbol of Chinese beauty.   

I have shared the photographs in my FB page, however, I find that the resolution in FB is very low for RAW images. I shared the pictures here in hope for better resolutions and probably I will start my 500px journey soon so I can upload our photographs with better resolution and quality. Any suggestion and feedback are most welcome. :)

My wish to all my beloved readers and amazing followers a year of prosperity and happiness. May we have a great journey with abundance of joy and unforgettable memories. See ya again in my next post! :D

Exploring The Haven Resort Ipoh!

Saturday, January 28, 2017 Sofia Naznim 0 Comments


Let me bring you guys to Haven...

The Haven Ipoh is a tranquil place to chill around and unwind from the busy city life. My company had our business conference here and it was a great experience to be part of the working committee to handle the conference with the rest of my teammates while enjoying the beautiful scenic place. The only thing that I felt missing was because I didn't have my husband by my side as we always travel together. 

There are few things I like about this place. The workers at Haven are generally nice, including the security guard and the cleaner. They respect their guests, considerate and helpful. The food is nice as well. 

Their seahorse-shaped swimming pool is awesome, they have infinity pool which faces the ever flowing beautiful lake and a 280-million-year-old limestone rock. They also have Jacuzzi and slide for children. The view is magnificent, you just wanna be there forever. 

I went to the swimming pool to swim for both days. Just ensure that you have proper swimming attire, then only you can swim. I always swim everywhere I go, especially if they have a nice pool. That's the time when you can somehow exercise and chill at the same time. :P 

For those who want to keep fit no matter where you go, worry not. There's a gym and a great jogging track around the lake. There is also an outdoor playground and indoor playroom for children.

I stayed with four of my housemates. We had a three-bedroom suite. The suite is clean, spacious with a beautiful view. The master bedroom is beautiful with a Jacuzzi tub. Our room is nice, but I think the smallest room is too small, quite empty and not that nice. 

One of the things I think it’s missing is not having enough mirrors. They only have mirrors in the bathroom which if you have many ladies in a house, you would know how difficult it can be to dress up, make up and do your hair. :P 

Overall, Haven is heavenly nice. Recommended for families and close friends getaway. If you are a couple, it’s nice, just that the price is on the high side. But if money is never an issue, it's a great place to lazing around with a stunning view and private surrounding. You can take the suites if you want all the place for you and your hubby. You can choose from their one-bedroom apartment, up to three-bedroom suites which can accommodate couples and families alike.

4.5/ 5 star rating for me. ★★★★♥

Enjoy my photo journey at The Haven. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. : )
