Whether you’re a hard working career woman, student or entrepreneur, it’s often easy to forget that a whole other world exists outside your everyday routine. A world that perhaps involves sleep-ins, self-indulgence, and dare we say it – “me” time.
At Raw Sugar we are one of the few, rare companies that are transparent with our products and company. We make pure, healthy and beneficial products that are safe for everyone to use! Here are a few things you may not already know about us:
Founded on the belief that everyone deserves to love the skin they’re in and wake up with a smile on their face, we are always looking for ways to positively contribute to the planet and its people.
We believe that the smallest acts of kindness can make a real impact…which is why we’re always striving to give back to the community and to those in need.
One of the ways we give back is through our mission, where for every product that you buy we donate a bar of soap to a family in need. Back in May we partnered with DirectRelief.org and were able to make a donation 1,000,000 fresh bars of soap to people in need, as well as hosting an event at the Union Rescue Mission to celebrate this milestone while giving back to the families who lived there.

Ladies, we need to talk.
You know all those times you compare yourself to others, criticize your own reflection, or tell yourself you can’t do something because you’re not good enough, strong enough, or smart enough? It needs to stop… like now. In 2018, we’re throwing negative self-talk out the window – and so are you.
It’s time for a shift – we’re moving from self-criticism to self-empowerment. Because hell hath no fury like a woman reborn! The good news is, all the tools you need to feel more empowered are already inside of you – you just need to learn how to harness and nurture them. And once you do? You’re gonna be a force to be reckoned with.
To help you along, here are the top tips on self-empowerment we’ve heard – and yep, they work.
Firstly, challenge negative thoughts.
When you tell yourself you’re not capable of achieving something, you believe it. So when negative thoughts about your own self-worth creep into your mind, challenge them instead of just accepting them as fact. Ask yourself, is this REALLY true? Because chances are – it’s not. Very few things are impossible – and a positive attitude the first step toward achieving your goals. Talk to yourself like you would to a very dear friend – with kindness… and just watch the transformation.

Take responsibility for yourself.
Here’s a little tough love: sometimes we just need to step up and put our big-girl pants on. Creating excuses gets us nowhere, and neither does placing blame on others. When we start to accept responsibility for ourselves and our lives – we start to gain more and more control. And with control comes power, and with power comes achievement.
To totally accept yourself, it helps to really know yourself – inside and out. Whatever type of meditation you choose, it’s a great way of bringing you back to earth and connecting you back to yourself – and revealing to you sides of yourself you may have forgotten. Meditation also helps with energy levels – it rejuvenates body and mind, which helps you feel more stimulated, motivated and confident within yourself.
Learn to say ‘no’
Sometimes, the simplest solution can be the hardest. Women especially find it difficult to say ‘no’, particularly when they feel like they’re letting someone down. Many of us feel obliged to agree to every request, and would rather juggle a an overwhelming amount of balls than refuse to help – even if it means we end up with no time or energy for ourselves. But saying ‘no’ when you genuinely don’t want to or can’t do something will give you back your power – and even earn the respect of those around you. It will liberate you from the weight on your shoulders and give you more control over your time. ‘No’ is a very powerful tool, indeed.
Trust the process
Whatever you do, don’t give up on you. Be aware of the growth that is happening within you every day. The process of our growth is ongoing and sometimes not visible to the naked eye – keep going with your journey and you’ll see the results.
