The Story of Ehalo's Founder
Becoming a Single Parent
Today single-parent families have become more common than the "traditional family" consisting of a mother, father, and children. Maintaining a balanced family relationship is difficult; it takes time and maturity to find the formula that fits the family!
All marriages are different and have their own unique stories. First comes love, then comes marriage, followed by kids, then comes the crushing realization that happily-ever-after takes a lot of effort! The hard truth is that many people find that children create significant stress in their relationships. Needless to say, the couple's problems have already existed before the children. Many times, going a separate way is the best solution.
If a couple raising a child is challenging, can you imagine single parenting? Becoming a single parent is a journey of self-acceptance. It is an important journey that I want to grab onto and create a story of my own. When life gives you a lemon, make a lemonade.
The Creation of Ehalo & Nanani World
Anxiety and stress often take place in the world of single parents. Parenting stress is common yet damaging to our well-being and may alter a child's development. Burn-out parents find it much harder to stay calm, set boundaries, and provide a loving environment for children to thrive.
Ehalo was created to help parents to be their best selves. Our goal is to make you calmer, allow you to be a communicator to people around you, stay relaxed but focused in critical moments, and complete the over-demanding tasks with a positive state of mind. Ehalo wants you to enjoy parenthood through calmness.
Nanani World is a website I initially created to document my journey as a single parent. Healing through journaling and hoping to help others possibly going through the same situations. Nanani World is a wellness journey for single parents.
Stay Calm and Strive
Single parenting can be stressful and demanding. Handling relationships with the ex-partner can be complex. Child custody arrangements and the financial burden can lead to late payment or debt. Some single parents sacrifice quality time with children due to long working hours.
Self-care is heavily promoted but as a single parent! I often think, where do I find time to do self-maintenance with all that burdens on my shoulders? The answer is "100% Yes! We SHOULD find time," Even just 5 to 10 minutes of the day. Self-care is essential to keep things around you in good shape.
Stress and long-term sleep deprivation are common issues for many single parents. There are a few ways to help you improve your overall well-being in stressful moments:
A friend recommended CBD while I was going through severe anxiety and suggested it could be an effective organic remedy to reduce my stress. Since then, I have tried many CBD products such as hemp, CBD gummies, CBD softgels, and CBD tinctures. Nano is the most effective option that works the best for me; nano CBD has significantly improved my sleeping quality after suffering from long-term sleep deprivation and disruption.
Before trying CBD, I often felt tired throughout the day and could not think clearly. CBD products have brought my focus back during the day and quality sleep at night. Today, I incorporated CBD into my daily wellness routine. It is part of my wellness journey.
Why Ehalo CBD products?
Ehalo was created because I have experience in the stress-relieving benefits of CBD products for wellness and anxiety. I intend to help you enjoy parenthood more, but I also aim to produce premium organic CBD products with the finest ingredients for women, new and single parents. Ehalo cares about your health!

Not only can yoga improve your cardiovascular health and physical flexibility, but it can also improve mental strength and keep you balanced. Yoga is a form of exercise that includes stretching, breathing, relaxation, and meditation, and it has proven to positively affect people with mental health conditions, such as reducing anxiety.
There are several benefits of practicing yoga with CBD. CBD works in harmony with yoga practice. It calms your mind and allows you to stay focused during the practice, go deeper in your stretch, and minimize muscle recovery time.
Begin your day with a calm and focused mind that can set the right tone for the rest of the day. Practicing mindfulness can release emotions that may have been causing the stress. Use 10 minutes of meditation to center yourself; you will be in a better place when the challenges and opportunities arrive.
CBD oil has been shown to improve concentration, focus, and attention. It limits the random thoughts and allows you to sit for more extended periods with fewer distractions. CBD tincture also helps to stabilize mood and mind to receive the day.
Incorporating CBD oil with breathing exercises is my immediate calming aid when facing challenges. The slow and deep breathing shifts my focus away from the "drama," with the help of CBD allows me to recenter again.
One of the breathing exercises I practice regularly is sitting in a quiet and comfortable place, closing my eyes, and shoulder relax. Slowly breathe in through the nose, breathe out through the mouth. Repeat this process until the feeling of anxiety decreases.
Take a walk
Research has shown that walking releases brain chemicals called endorphins that stimulate relaxation and improve our mood. Walking does not have to be done at a fast pace or in a perfect big park to receive the stress-relieve benefits. Walk around the neighborhood, or park near you, breathe fresh air and feel the positive energy that can make you feel better.
Being a single-parent will make you experience the process of demolishing what you have built around you, entering a healing stage, rebuilding the support system, and more. I hope Nanani World is a space where you can find strength, while Ehalo can help you get through some of the most frustrating moments with a calming mind and positive attitude.
