The last two years have been crazy. We’ve never experienced anything like it in our lifetimes. We never experienced such an effect on our mental wellbeing. Unfortunately, a lot of us have been beaten down by anxiety, stress, and poor sleep due to all the uncertainty in the world. And if you’re a working parent, you’ve had the extra difficulty of keeping your kids occupied 24/7 while trying to work from home… not an easy task. So if you feel exhausted and burnt out, you’re not alone. There are tens of thousands of people in a similar place right now. The question is, what can we do to enhance our mental wellness and recapture our zest for life?

One critical thing I’m advising all of my family and friends to do is take Magnesium Breakthrough daily. Here’s why…

Stress and anxiety deplete your magnesium levels. Low magnesium levels then contribute to more anxiety! It’s a vicious cycle. By supplementing with Magnesium Breakthrough, you can break that cycle. Because you’ll be getting 7 unique forms of organic full-spectrum magnesium for stress relief and better sleep, all in one bottle. Taking Magnesium Breakthrough will help you to experience: more energy, stronger bones, healthy blood pressure, less irritability, a calmer mood, reduced muscle cramping, even fewer migraines. And because it supports mental wellness, Magnesium Breakthrough can help you to finally feel yourself again. Simply take two capsules before you go to bed and you’ll be amazed by the improvements in your mood and energy levels. And how much more rested you feel when you wake up!

What people often miss on their websites

A common thing missing [from websites] is [a person’s] unique look of their brand and having a cohesiveness to it. (Keshia White)

Common mistakes that people make when it comes to making their websites are:

  • Using common templates which make their websites look cookie-cutter and a bit like everybody else’s
  • Not utilizing design and letting it remain plain
  • Not utilizing design and creating a website that lacks cohesiveness and common design principles

When your design is a bit more elevated, more cohesive, and more unique, it helps people to stand out and professionally elevate what they do … that cohesiveness and uniqueness is something that I [often] see missing. (Keshia White)

Branding principles

A brand is much more than your logo. A successful brand portrays you and what you are known for, like a digital reputation.

  • Get clear on the messaging of your brand
  • What values do you want to exude through your messages?
  • Which tone of voice do you want to use in your branding?

Here again, cohesiveness becomes important.

That cohesive look comes into play again because there’s the visual brand piece with the colors, imagery, and how your website looks and how any marketing items that you have … have their own unique [and] cohesive look. (Keshia Write)

Your message, your brand, and your design all work together. What is your visual reputation? How does your messaging help describe the nature of your brand to your audience?

Questions to ask yourself

  • Which song would you use to describe your brand?
  • Who is your ideal client?
  • What differentiates you in your industry from others who do similar work to you?
  • Which tone of voice would you use in your messaging to get the true essence of the brand across to your audience?
  • How would you describe your brand essence in a personality?

What’s the personality of your brand?

What do you want to give off [through your branding]? That’s important because when people log on they want to be able to see that. (LaToya Smith)

Think about creating a personality around your brand.

It does not have to become a real person. But, thinking about the personality that best suits your brand can help you to connect with the personalities of your ideal clients and target audience.

How can you show – through the personality and brand of your company – that your business can help someone?
