New Year's Revolutions
...because New Year's resolutions are so last year!
Resolutions are so 2015, and many people don’t even stick by them. Plus we live in a fast paced world, where everyone rarely has enough time on their hands. What you need is a revolution, and here are three easy, time saving and fun-to-do ones that will help to make you, a better you!
It’s already 2016! Time sure does fly; and to think you’d need to waste precious moments by running 20 minutes on a treadmill, then spend another 20 or so on weights, and not get the desired results quick enough. Thankfully, there is now a smarter, timelier way to get your exercise done.
If you’ve not heard about it yet, the latest buzz in the realm of fitness is Electric Muscle Simulation (EMS) fitness training. Jinie Kamal and Dirk Schmellenkamp, are the duo that brings this cutting edge German technology to Kuala Lumpur, through Impulse Studio. Dubbed a ‘gym without weights’ the EMS machine generates impulses which pass through your skin, directly above the muscles to be worked out.
The EMS training has different functions that focus on cardio, shaping, muscle building, rehabilitation, preventative, beautifying – anti-cellulite and skin tightening tools. The best thing about it is that you only need to spend 20 minutes on your entire workout! Allowing you to get home with time to spare for your loved ones, pets or video games.

The times have brought about a lot of change. The older generation have seen things once only possible on film become a reality in the lives of the younger – such as FaceTime, space travel, and characters coming out of screens (now known as 3D movies). Another thing that has been revolutionised, are vegetables.
You can now, and also tell your children to, drink your vegetables! The main founder and managing director of La Juiceria, Anabelle Co-Martinent is a loving and caring mother; which is the main reason the brand began producing cold pressed juices. She wanted a healthy and easy solution during her pregnancy, and began juicing. In the process, it dawned upon her that “Malaysians are ready for something healthy.”
Now, the brand which mixes both fruits and vegetables into their healthy concoctions, and hires nutritionists on-board to cater for the specific needs of customers, has gained a strong presence in the nation. Proving that Malaysians do want to be healthy. Grab your healthy cocktail at any one of the 12 outlets in the vicinity of KL or save time and have them delivered to you. Find out more here.
Healthy stuff, that is. George Bernard Shaw once said, “There’s no love sincerer than the love of food.” And who are we to stand in the way of true love? However, one should never love blindly, and just stuff your face with any kind of junk. Instead, do your body right, and choose healthier options.
One such option to choose from is the services of Food Matters. Certified nutritionist, Alexandra Prabaharan’s main mission is to cast away the negativity surrounding healthy eating. Thus creating affordable and delicious meals that are accessible to most. Replacing unhealthy ingredients with similar tasting nutritious ones is among their open secrets to creating local favourites like Nasi Lemak; in which, virgin coconut oil is used to replace santan.
Living in this food driven nation, in where people tend to think about what’s for dinner while having their lunch, it’s good to know that Food Matters offers a more body sustainable solution. It is even better to know that they also have the food driven to you. Making it all the more convenient and time saving. To place your orders and learn more, visit their site here.
