I Felt So Stressed Today! Then I did This


Today, was not an easy day for me... there was a lot of stress at work, after picking up myself and making my way home, I had to return home to face a barrage of work..

It was like my day was planning to cause a strain on my mental health.. I was beginning to think differently, think about everything, the stress, the work and I wasn't able to concentrate.

Looking around at the just cleaned house, which has worked some calories (energy) out of me, and then my stressed up self, it was like today wasn't my day.

If you have gone through this you will know what I am talking about, after being stressed out at work, you might come back home to a no food situation and you have to cook, or you might come back to no power (light) situation and you don't have the energy to turn on the generator or the tolerance to bear the noise of the generator.

You might say I should take a pillow and go to sleep and I will wake up better and fine.. or I should just get some food, maybe hunger has been registered in my brain that is why I am feeling this way..

Or maybe that was what you did!

But here is what I did



If you love watching action movies you should know this trick, I saw it and picked it up and found it to be very relaxing... It was from Season 3 of the Movie Arrow.

I sat down on my bed, and crossed my legs, placed my hands on the side of my knees, closed my eyes, and then.....

I inhaled through my nose and out through my mouth, continuously, normally I do this while keeping my mind blank, but if you feel so stressed, you can just concentrate on the positive things that happened that day or any positive thing you can think of..

This is one of the ways I reduce stress and keep myself mentally healthy.

Remember to relax, take a breather, worrying wouldn't take that stress/problems away, but clearing up the emotions will give you a better chance at thinking to how to create a solution to the problem bothering you..

Do You Know How Healthy You Are Eating?


I am sure most of you just finished breakfast, which may be warmed leftovers from yesterday or freshly cooked food...

Whichever it is... today I am going to be discussing about food, but I am not going to be talking about food in detail.. that is like talking about nutrients and calories and other stuff, but I am going to talk about the process of preparing food...

I mean you cannot be talking about taking enough nutrients when you might just be taking those nutrients with so many germs due to your unhygienic ways..

So what am I talking about here?

I am talking about the way we prepare our food, the things we do, before, during and after cooking, is the food still healthy for eating after cooking it...

For better understanding on this lets get down to some unhygienic things we do while preparing food...

We already know how important it is to wash the hands before cooking, if you don't know this in detail, which many of us don't just follow the articles below

Read Here:

The Most Dangerous and Dirtiest Part of Your Body

So other than that, here are some things you do in the kitchen which makes this question worth asking

Clean Your Head from sweat

Yes temperatures get high in the kitchen, and you sweat, and then you just decide to do a quick wipe with your hand, and return back to cooking..

I have seen this a lot and it is thoroughly unhygienic, as there are a lot of bacteria on your skin, which you may have just transferred to your fingers and unto your food.

Read This:

Here is Why Your Sweat Smell

Taking a Break

I believe most of the germs comes from here, when things become too hot in the kitchen or when we decide to give the foodstuffs sometime to boil, we take a break to go watch some tv, or do something else.

Your hands get in contact with surfaces, transferring germs and when you return to the kitchen, you just open the pot and continue with your cooking.

Instead of doing this we should first re-wash our hands to reduce the amount germs we have come in contact with on our break, to help us eat a completely healthy food.

Completely Unhygienic Habits We do once in a while

Sneezing: Sneezing into a corner and continue cooking, seriously, do you know how many germs you just released from your nose and worse you released them into the air and into the kitchen and not very far from what you are cooking.

Nose Picking: I have said severally that this should be cut off from our list of bad habits, but once in a while, it seems to take a hold on us... but it should be completely let off in the kitchen..

Cough: Just like sneezing this should be avoided near the food, when you are cooking meals.

Bathroom Breaks: I might have left this one out, but the fact that most still forget to wash our hands after using the bathroom, still leaves this one hanging as a bad habit we should avoid..

Scratching: Your head, hair or any part of your body near foodstuff or the pot can actually send germs flying into your food, please keep a distance when scratching to keep your meal as healthy as possible.


We should try as much as possible to practice hygienic habits to make sure we are eating nourishing meals and germ packed meals.. As for sneezing, if you are unable to hold it, at least have a towel handy and always wash your hands after that...


Don't go anywhere, I will be sharing an article which talks about the nutrients in food we are eating, and how healthy is it for us, this will help a lot for those who get sick easily, or those who want to reduce belly fat, or for those who want to just do what I do (i.e. eating just to stay fit).

Dear Readers! Why Do you Exercise Mostly on Saturdays


Yes, many of us do this, you exercise mostly on Saturdays, you only get the strength on this day to move your body to a healthy rhythm, and wait for the coming weekend where ypu return to your unhygienic ways.

Dear Readers! Why do you Exercise mostly on Saturdays?

By now you are wondering what I mean by exercise mostly on Saturdays, well I mean for those of us who attend parties (weddings, birthdays, clubs), when you shake your body to the rhythm of the music..I call that exercising.

When you move your waist, and shake off some calories, when you move your body, making yourself more flexible just to the beat of some tunes.

And during the week you tell me you are too lazy to exercise?

Far from it!

Or are you telling me that you don't dance, you want to tell me that you don't tap your feet on the ground or that you don't follow Olamide's shakiti Bobo or Kiss Daniel's Mama or Calvin Harris' My Way  or even on Sunday's that you don't follow the rhyme of religious tunes, you don't whine, shake, bend, twist your waist effortlessly to the those tunes..

Ah I can see you smiling!

So in the end you are not so lazy to exercise, because exercise is all about keeping fit which includes losing excess calories (which is what dancing does)...

So Dear Reader, why do you exercise mostly on Saturdays, is a jog too hard, is some pull ups or crunches or even skipping or even jumping too hard when you do that every Saturday or even on Sunday.

Remember exercising is for your benefit it keeps you healthy, (Remember that having a flat stomach doesn't mean you are healthy, it might mean that you are underfeeding and even though you are not feeling anything now, some months, years from now will show)..

So you see, it is so easy and so beneficial to exercise, if you are interested in moving to your body to a healthy rhythm, not just because you love the music but because you know the countless benefits can give to you.

I exercise as much as I can, (ranging from weightlifting to some little yoga, meditation and so on)

Did You Know: Caring About Your Health Makes You More Intelligent


You think you care about your health, right, well think again,


You are one of those people who only visit health websites when you are sick, or just feel like or when you want to inquire about something for a friend.

You might be one of those people who just fell stomach pain, and say it might be because I didn't sit well, then you stumble upon the answers in a website and; 

ah this makes sense" you say

And that's it, no more inquiry, no more in depth research and months later you forget and fall into other problems.

Caring about your health is understanding your health, and if you do so you will barely pick your nose, chew your fingernails, sneeze into the air or on your hand or eat anything without washing your hands.

So How does Caring about (a.k.a understanding) your health make your more intelligent. 

How does doing things because I understand them not because I think so make me more intelligent.. 

How does brushing my mouth before bed to prevent food particles which invite bacteria into mouth from causing me oral problems make me more intelligent.

Well, here goes

You will have a free mind

Caring about your health makes you more interesting in things that could boost your immune system reduce stress levels and relax your mind.

This gives you time to think, focus and react. and we all know those who think before they talk are wise huh!

Academic Boost

Staying all night reading and in the end just to get a manageable degree. And you sit down wondering how Bill Gates, Mark Zuckeberg or even your friends do it... 

Let Health give you a boost an intelligence boost with its very promising nutrients through health foods e.g fish which gives brain power


More Alert and Agile:

With a sharp brain, you have a sharp body, leading to a whole complete intelligent being, I mean it wouldn't be complete if you were just a mass of fat who knows how to meditate and keep his head a straight. 

How could you make intelligent physical decisions? 

According to a research published on Business Insider, which concludes that; 

Obese people are generally seen as less productive, more prone to interpersonal problems, lazy, and less intelligent than their thinner counterparts.  

One Step Ahead of Others

Intelligent people are always one step ahead of their competition or people around them, that is why they are so influential and sought out for, and caring about your health can do this for you..

Remember the Ebola Outbreak,
So  many died, but did you know that those with strong, healthy immune systems had a high chance of survival and most of those who survived were with such immune systems.

They were one step ahead and when it came they were protected.. I call that intelligence..

Less Worries

Everyone has worries, either it is about a partner, friend, family relative or finances, even the Kardashians do have worries.

With an upgraded mind (better thinking or perception) and healthy body we can eliminate worries, concentrate on our problems instead and get solutions more easily..

Because caring (understanding) about your health makes you exposes to meditation tips, self improvement tips, and so many other mind comforting tips.. Now wouldn't you want that.

Rather than doing things because any website or because of your doctor, do it because of your doctor and because you completely understand it. 

You might not be able to completely understand you body (but that is why we have doctors) but you can completely understand what happens around you and in you.

Here are the 5 Reasons Why I Eat Fruits


Fruits are succulent , juicy and very beneficial in so many way. I just love to crunch, suck, lick or just chew their deliciousness into my every inviting mouth and send them down my digestive system to do justice to and release their nutrients into my body.

But wait.. There is more..........

I don't just like to eat fruit because it is juicy, sweet or succulent or just because it is in season, like most of us do, I have many other reasons why I eat fruit and I hope to enlighten you on the benefits of eating fruits (Note: You might have just found the fountain of youth).

Eating fruits is more than just for just because it is sweet or just because a website or your doctor says so, for me it is because I understand the benefits.

Eating food for the juiciness alone and because of doctors and websites, is like eating rice only because you like rice, or because it is a type of food and not because it contains carbohydrates which give energy we require for work..


Have you been eating rice for any other reason than the nutrients it provides?

You need to improve on that... I will be sharing an article on food and what it entails soon, so you can just subscribe, below so that you wouldn't miss the article.

So here are the 5 reasons why I eat fruits.

But before we get down to that you must know this:

Consuming too much fruits its actually not good for you health as fruits contain a sugar known as fructose which will have a dire impact on your health (you see the difference between understanding something and just reading and believing).


Okay so here they are:

1. It is how I say Bye Bye and No No to Infections

Yes, I eat fruits just to prevent infection, my body gets a boost of nutrition just from taking fruits, remember the saying

An apple a day keep the doctor away

Well, I don't joke with that, Bacteria is everywhere, and I got to step up my game (immune system). So I don't wait for season to define my intake of fruits, I calculate the nutrients...

They are like a power packed nutritious strongman, with the combination of nutrients such as powerful flavonoids, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, phytochemicals and the countless micro- and macronutrients which are very advantageous for my health. 

2. Because Natural Vitamin C is the Best

You might have heard of vitamin C and also you might have taken the one in tablet (medicine).. But I prefer the ones that comes from fruits, nature is quite easier to preserve than medicines and not all pharmacies are 100% clean, so give me Vitamin C from a fruit everyday.

3. Fruits can do so much more

It's not just only about fighting infections and being safer than medicines which can be found in the pharmacy, it is also about boosting energy, boosting my immune system and also improve my eyesight, (I take carrots for the eye sight part and if you do you should know this).

4. And Much More

Fruits help me stay healthy by cutting my chances of having heat stroke, high blood pressure (although you have to slow down on intake to make this one possible), cancer, heart diseases and diabetes, while promoting a healthy skin by fighting skin disorders and healthy hair growth..

5. Because Prevention is Better than Treatment

Buying and eating fruits is much more cheaper, than curing a disease and staying in hospital for weeks, there are some things I can prevent like I said above in No. 3 and 4. and I love to save my money. Thank you.

So why do you eat fruits or why will you start eating fruit.

9 things you must know before you start your week

Its a new week, seriously I wish resting weekends were more than just Saturdays and Sundays...

Did you just agree with that? If you did then you should seriously memorize this article

You already have plans, how this week will go and what you hope you gain, what you hope to drop and so much more..

But this week should be more promising than the last right? and this is how you are going to do it

By following this simple directive you can get more out of your week 

Okay, Here are 9 things you must know before you start your week

1. You are not going to do everything all over again 

Like seriously, this almost always happens to me, whether it is to break a bad habit or to gain something..

I just flip up and do the same thing all over again for the following week..


For you it might be being stressed out at work, inability to fulfill promises, break bad habits or wasteful spending, whatever it is this week is going to be different from the others because you are going to take a pen and paper and plan your week carefully,

Your spending, and profit, everything, will be in a step by step plan

As for being stressed out at work Read this article below on meditation

What Meditation Can Do for You That You Show Know

This week will be different because you will sit and plan rather than what you did last week.

2. You are going to exercise

Seriously many of us don't know our own strengths, some say they are too lazy to exercise and that may just be the reason why you are easily stressed out..


This week you are going to set an exercise plan, maybe you are doing so for weight control, weight loss, or just to stay fit, the thing is that you are going to stop telling yourself that you are lazy or that you will fall ill due to exercise, but that you will stay strong and carefully collect all the benefits of exercise which are normally yours.

3. You are going to eat healthy

I am sure that last week you cooked one of your favorite meals, you love the taste, the way it takes a little amount of effort to cook, or maybe you just eat because someone else is cooking..

This week you are trying something different, you are going to eat and cook because you know what you are eating contains enough nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, minerals etc) to give you energy, growth and help you perform your activities adequately..

You are going to eat fish not because it is so tasty, but because it is brain food and help you think better...

So first you are going to get an education on what nutrients certain food stuffs contain and how you can take all those nutrients into yourself for your benefit.

4. You are going to break some bad habits

We can't do everything in a minute and so we can't break all habits at once, so this week you will list, where you will write down all your bad habits (like, chewing nails, late night browsing, sleeping beside your phone, watching late night television nose picking, refusal to exercise etc) starting with the most embarrassing to the least and we are going to take down as many as possible this week and leave the rest for the next week and so on

5.You are going to Inspire People

What is life without you sitting and knowing you are responsible for the progress and knowledge of others

What is life without you seeing people looking at you to inspire them, So this week isn't going to be like last week.

You are going to be more than just an island, or more than just a friend to that friend, you are going to be something more.

6. You are going to achieve all you plan to achieve

Ever felt like you have worked too hard and decide to push it to the next day, well that is not what you are going to do this week..
Things you can do today are better done today than tomorrow to avoid any unexpected distractions

We can't control time/events, so we have to do well with what is in our control, so whatever that is, you can actually finish it today, if you say you want to ..

That is how much power you have, you have a brain to control your body, so if you are feeling tired and say no I can do this today, your brain sends signals to your body and they become alert, but if you succumb then gbam your body just went from tired to completely weak.

So stop giving on and stop pushing it further do it now, because you can.
7. You are going to get more Inspiration/Motivation

Remember I said that you are going to motivate people for this week, well you are also going to motivate yourself to go for your dreams


Because if you don't go for your dreams, people will employ you to work for them to achieve theirs, so if you are getting a little low on the motivation gauge, there is something you can do about that,

Stop thinking about the negativity around, and start focusing on the positive things in you, head for your dreams, using your skills and abilities rather than sitting in an office working for a company which is after its dreams.

8. You are going to get more out of this week / life

Seriously, you can do all that above if you have not planned to get more out of this week, if you have not planned to do so much more.

So you say to yourself that you are going to get more out of this week, more than you have ever done, and simply that's it.

We first need the faith before we can do the work.

9. You are going to Subscribe to Newsphases Newsletter

What is reading all this and still refusing to subscribe by mail below..

Want to get more out of your week and I tell you that you can get so much more by practically having the latest on health, self improvement, lifestyle, fitness in your mail from

3 Parts of Your Body You Always Forget to Wash


Good Morning ...

If you are just getting out of bed, that's good, if you are just getting out of the bathroom go back in...

I am going to talk about the 3 parts, locations (you can call it destinations if you like it) that we normally don't bathe...

You might think you are scrubbing and keeping clean, but these places are filled with germs and bacteria which can actually cause you series of unauthorized problems..

Okay remember to remain in the bathroom if you were just leaving there.

Here are the three parts of your body you forget to wash..

Behind Your Ears

Ladies, ladies ladies, and for those of you that are wearing hair that does not belong to you (well you bought it so, it can actually be yours).

But my point is, ladies who normally wear wigs and all sorts of hair extensions, have never touched this area since they always cover their hair during a bath.

As for this guys, many of you barely know that this place exist..

Now take a finger with a long fingernail, place it behind your ear and scrub down, now look at your finger, what do you see,

If you see some black substance on your finger then you need to start being more hygienic.


If you haven't heard the navel is a sweet spot for pleasure, but actually how can you place your lips or hands on someplace filled with germs,

This is so because many guys and maybe girls barely scrub their navel area which tends to accumulate dirt and germs.

If you are one of them who normally forget to scrub your navel area, learn this for a change..

and finally this part of the body which is so visible to everyone and so many of us forget to scrub it, well ladies are vindicated from this one, because their makeup normally cleans this place for them...

Beside the Nostrils

There is the bridge of the nose, and there is the nostrils and then there is beside the nostrils.

Go to your mirror and look beside your nostrils, if you see some whitish stuff, or any thing other than normal then you have to be more hygienic.

What I Do Every Morning and Why I do It

I woke up this morning...checked the time.... looked at my face in the mirror and my eyes to know what up with those high class camera... I exercised ... did all necessary home cleaning.. brushed my teeth... had my bath...

Ate some proteins as breakfast, wore my clothes and straight to work...

Lets Break Down Why I do all these things, because the reason you do the things you do is what makes you different and almost perfect..


Checked the time..

Sleeping for long is not something I fancy, but really, sleeping too long will cause eating disorders, as you will be likely to eat more, due to such sleep methods, for me who check how fit I am most times.. I don't need any extra weight or lose my flexibility due to accumulation of fat.


Look at my face in the Mirror. and My Eyes

I heard its apollo season, (Conjunctivitis or Pink Eye) and I am feeling a bit of pain at my eyelashes so it's just to check whatsup... same goes for checking my eyes and also I check my eyes to see if they are red or white.. Red means I seriously didn't sleep well.


I Exercised...

I already have the six packs and muscles, so I exercise to keep fit, to keep my muscles flexible and not just muscly and hardly movable, exercise helps to keep me alert, sharper and that is what I want...

Also exercises make you better at sex, there are some sex positions you will never dare if you are too lazy to exercise .....and here a secret..... those positions are a bomb.


Home Cleaning..

A dirty home, does not defines me, the billions of germs that live in an unkempt home can kill you, cause you stomach problems as they are transferred from our hands into our body and also keeping your home clean is also a show of kindness to your neighbours..


If yo have a dirty home filled with rats and cockroaches, one day they will migrate to your neighbour's house and cause him problems.

Brushed my Teeth

I brush my teeth for many reasons and not just to keep a clean mouth to prevent mouth odour, but to keep a clean mouth free from bacteria which causes mouth odour, tooth decay, tooth sensitivity and other series of oral problems which may lead to other forms of bodily harm..

Recommended Article 

Have my Bath

I bathe to keep myself clean like most of us do... I also bathe to reduce the amount of bacteria on my skin and its this bacteria that cause body odour and not sweat itself...

Recommended Articles

Here is Why  Your Sweat Smells

Why you should be careful when bathing yourself or a child 

Ate Proteins for Breakfast

I don't believe in skipping breakfast, although I have done it, to escape debiting my salary due to lateness.

Proteins are known as body building foods and that is what you need to start your day, energy and a built mind and body.. So instead of going on an empty stomach, build your body for the day and you will live longer, healthier and as handsome as I look..

Wore My Clothes..

Because I can't walk naked to work... lol

Went to Work

Every man needs some sort of occupation to start up with before he moves up to his dreams.. and I am no different..

So what do you do every morning and why do you do them?..

No Bra Day! What It Really Means


Today there is a National Celebration, actually its an awareness campaign, but the title seems to say  otherwise.. 

Its No Bra day ..

Please ladies keep your bras on, it is an awareness campaign and not an excuse for you to show more cleavage, it is something more serious and something many women are ignoring..

It is a Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide, with nearly 1.7 million new cases diagnosed in 2012. Statistics estimate that worldwide over 508 000 women died in 2011 due to breast cancer.

There are so many estimates and fore telling, and they are not good, all point at increasing chances of women worldwide getting cancer.

But Why is This Cancer so Deadly

Here is What the Doctor in the House had to Say

“Breast cancer is not fatal in and of itself,  What makes it fatal is if it goes into other parts of the body and gets into the lymph nodes, lungs and other organs,  Also if it gets into the blood or the bones, it can kill a person. That's the risk of metastasized cancer".

So now we understand how deadly and serious this is, I am sure you are looking for preventive measure and more information on this disease.

The Most Dangerous and Dirtiest Part of Your Body


We all have that specific part of our body which we know oozes during any laborious activity or due to the lack of some TLC..

It may be the armpits (for most people) the reproductive area, the mouth or the feet..

But which of this is the most dangerous and dirtiest... 

Now by dangerous I mean which can easily transfer diseases to us and other people,..

No it isn't your mouth, bad breath isn't communicable, it isn't your feet either..

It's your hands


The human hands are the most dangerous and dirtiest part of the human body and specifically I am referring to your palms and fingers. We frequently touch our face, mouth, eyes and other parts of our body even without realizing it.

They may look so innocent and beautiful and hairless, but alias they may be packed to capacity with germs


Our hands do so many things and many of us barely wash, mainly due to ignorance of where and what we touched

For example

Bathroom Breaks

50 - 90% of Nigerians don't wash after going to the bathroom. You.... yes am talking to you, you might be one of them..

When we go to pee, it is very easy for us to skip washing our hands, especially when we are in the office or maybe we took a quick pee break in the bush or even when there is no water in the toilet...

We do not know in reality the no of germs that are contracted just by visiting the bathroom alone..

The germs we contract from touching the handle of the door to the bathroom,

The germs we contract from touching the cover of the toilet seat,

and so many other activities we do in the bathroom.

All these lead to transfer of tons of germs between people...



Lately I published a post which will make you have a rethink about shaking or sharing anything with someone who normally picks his/her nose.

Missed that article? well take a rewind here: Why You Should Wash Your Hand Before Anything

Our hands are the tools and equipments given the official task of picking of our nose, this hand remains unwashed in most of us and then we use the same hands to mount on food and throw a spoonful of nutrients and germs down our digestive system.

Others like touching surfaces, scratching armpits and even touching other people which we do most of times and later this hand ends up touching our own face or any part of our body, thereby transferring tons of germs to ourselves. 

Note: Germs get into our bodies and cause diseases through openings such as Mouth, Nose, Cuts etc

Here is Why Your Sweat Smells


Why does sweat smell, why do I smell like dustbin just minutes after sweating, it reeks..

You might be asking this or you might be wondering why Johnny who just left your house smells worse than anything you have ever encountered..

Well you can keep this answer in mind for research purposes or just to for understanding..

Sweat itself does not smell


You are like gini? what? Is my nose deceiving me?

it doesn't, it seriously doesn't smell... Stop doubting and read on


The familiar smell of body odour, comes from normal skin bacteria breaking down the sweat secretions released from the sweat glands.

I practically research this information, so don't worry you can actually put your life on it.


Body odour mainly originates from the apocrine glands in the armpits, which release a thick, oily sweat rich in proteins and lipids which bacteria on the skin feed on.

So in real sense it is those bacteria that live on the skin that cause body odour, meaning

more sweat more body odour

more bacteria more body odour

More Posts: 

Now that is why we are advised to bathe at least twice a day to reduce the number of bacteria on the skin,

Most things are all about bacteria and we are full of them.


Body odour occurs during exercise and when we feel strong emotions, because these are the triggers for the apocrine gland to secrete sweat. 

The warm, damp conditions of the armpit are also a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive in and create smelly odours.

13-year-old girl dies after fasting for 68 days, Parents get arrested


A 13-year-old girl died in Hyderabad, India after her family allegedly compelled her to undertake a 68-day fast as part of a community ritual.

Aradhna, a class 8 student, died on October 3, a day after she completed the fastas per Jain rituals during the holy period of Chaumasa in the belief that it will bring profits to her father's business. The girl was taking only water and that too during a specific period during the day.

Her parents Laksgmichand Samdhariya and his wife Manisha were booked for culpable homicide [causing death by negligence] and Juvenile Justice Act [cruelty against minors], under Section 304(ii) of the Indian Penal Code.

According to B Sumathi, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North Zone), a case would be filed after a preliminary inquiry into the incident.

    "As of now, we have made an entry in the general dairy," she said.

The hospital where she was taken after she collapsed said she was brought dead. According to doctors, at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KMIS) she may have died of cardiac arrest and renal failure.They said the long fast led to dehydration and affected her kidneys and other vital organs.

More Posts 
A local NGO Balala Hakkula Sangham (Child Rights Association) had on Frirday wrote a letter to Hyderabad Police Commissioner seeking an inquiry into the girl's death earlier this week. The NGO had alleged that the minor's family members and other community elders made her undertake a fast for over 60 days as part of a ritual.

The family claimed that she voluntarily took up the fast and refused to give up when advised after 50 days. It is reported the girl had once successfully completed a 34-day fast
Source: Press Trust of India/Khaleej Times..


I believe the parents should be tried justly if it is truly a case of death by negligence, sometimes the hunger pangs of poverty can make us make decisions that may result in dire effects.


I believe a we should have adequate knowledge about how the human body works, before going on any religious pursuits, this is not the first case of death due to fasting in the world, but if we try to acquire more knowledge about ourselves and body, this could be completely reduced.

Know This One Thing Before You Start Your Personal Business


BYOB (Be Your Own Boss), I heard that saying from a popular blogger. Practically gone are the days when we work tirelessly under someone and hope to be settled with something at the end, also soon to go are the days when we spend years in school only to hope to get a job someday in some form of establishment. Now we are establishing our own empires. We are our own Boss. 

Although, it sounds exciting to be your own Boss, start your own personal business, a clothing line, an artist shop, a hair saloon, an insurance company and a blog, there are some ups and downs involved in starting your own business like there is in everything. 

P.S: although am not yet a well-established business man, rising, but I believe my little experience has taught me this one thing.. 

Which is: 

Personal Businesses Are Not for the Soft at Heart 

I don't mean BYOB are not for those who are physically impaired, or unintelligent, I mean personal business are not for those who are quick to react to losses, those who burst into anger, get a stroke, heart attack, break down completely or commit suicide, when a loss comes knocking on their door. 

I say this because when I started my blog, I was practically without reliable source of network connection, I had to do most things in cyber cafes which ate my money faster than I regained it. I was practically timed whenever I made any adjustment to my blog and sometime when I have 2 minutes left on my ticket and I make a major mistake on the blog without applying backup, I could almost break  down because I knew that there were no available funds to purchase more time.. But hey, am strong at heart and that is why am here now..

Now lets switch to businesses which contain a more psychologically impacting effect... Like when you order for goods from Europe or America, paid for them, and then you heard that your ship or crate got lost in the sea or those who heavily invested in a certain business and later found out it was fraud.

This would make someone go crazy, losing life's worth in just a short time, but great business men are not nurtured that way. Businesses consist of losses and gains and we have the power to influence both of them, and we need a healthy body to do so (a healthy body equals a healthy mind needed to tackle tight situations).

I wouldn't tell you to quit if you are trying to go for your own business, if you have a soft heart. I would tell you to build yourself, think, act and react like a real business man.

Scared of Needles? Here is How to Deal With It


Hate Needles? I don't like them either, they still feel ever painful even if you know that its coming,

At the sight of its pointy end, I start sweating profusely,


"be a man" my mom could say.
Then I will squeeze my face into a frown so hard to get this over with.

But that didn't prevent me from screaming  even though it wasn't the most painful thing I had ever experienced .

So What is Really Happening?


If you had gone through this what you are experiencing is called a vasovagal response, a reflex (reflex action are actions we can't control) that occurs when your body overreacts (actually I don't think I am overacting, that needle is about to pierce my soft skin, but well scientists have said so) to certain triggers, like blood or needles. 

The triggers stimulate a nerve that then causes your heart rate to slow down and your blood pressure to drop. As a result, you may suddenly feel warm or light-headed, turn pale, or lose consciousness.


So How do I behave Like a Man When a Doctor is About to Draw Blood


Squeezing your face wouldn't work 

Its quite simple and you have to deal with that fear you have, I mean our doctors are trustworthy aren't they.

To get through a blood draw when you feel dizziness coming on, try the applied tension technique: Tense the muscles in your body for 10 to 15 seconds, then release for 20 to 30 seconds, and continue. 

This helps raise your blood pressure, making you less likely to faint. Ask to lie down, too—then look away so you can’t see the needle entering your arm or the blood flowing.

So Why Does This Happen in the First Place


Scientists have been unable to completely understand why some people have vasovagal responses and others simply don't, although I think its due to the fact that some have gotten over fear of needles.

But reassuringly if you have vasovagal responses there is nothing to be worried about, they are harmless and you don't need treatment of any sort, (you might just be a softie).

But if your reaction is constant and so bad that you dread getting immunizations, medical tests, or surgeries, consider seeing a psychologist who can help you work through your fear using a therapy method known as exposure therapy (in which you are practically put in the presence of needles, until you are not longer sensitive towards them i.e. you get used to them)..

Woman dies of sepsis just days after gardening scratch in UK


A scratch while gardening spiraled into a fatal bout of sepsis for a mother of two from the United Kingdom, her family says.

Lucinda Smith’s family, reported The Telegraph, said the 43-year-old went to see her doctor earlier this year due to pain in her shoulder that occurred shortly after she suffered a minor hand scrape while gardening.

The doctor diagnosed a trapped nerve and prescribed anti-depressants to relax her and she was also told to see a physiotherapist to help with rehabilitation of the so-called trapped nerve.

Within three days, Smith’s fingers and arm became red and swollen, The Telegraph said. She also was vomiting and had increased pain. She saw a second doctor who thought she might have a blood clot and sent her to Basildon Hospital where a blood test revealed within 30 minutes that she had sepsis.

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection, according to Mayo Clinic experts. It happens when chemicals released into the bloodstream to fight the infection trigger inflammatory responses throughout the body. That process can lead to organ damage and failure.

Septic shock occurs when the person’s blood pressure drops dramatically, which may lead to death.

Smith, a lawyer from Billericay, Essex, immediately received intravenous antibiotics and was moved to a critical care unit, but she suffered organ failure and died.

A CDC report released in August showed that in the U.S., for nearly 80 percent of patients, sepsis begins outside of the hospital. But it is also linked to exposure to medical environments -- 7 in 10 patients with sepsis had recently used health care services or had chronic diseases requiring frequent medical care.

Anyone can develop sepsis but seniors and people with weaker immune systems are more vulnerable, say Mayo Clinic experts. Early treatment of sepsis, usually with antibiotics and large amounts of intravenous fluids, improves chances for survival.

People should know the signs and immediately seek medical care if they notice these symptoms after developing an infection:

·      Shivering, fever, or very cold

·      Extreme pain or discomfort

·      Clammy or sweaty skin

·      Confusion or disorientation

·      Shortness of breath

·      High heart rate

At the CDC press briefing in August, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden, said his own son survived sepsis more than two decades ago.

“Helping patients to know to ask ‘Could this be sepsis?’ empowers them to potentially save their own or family members’ lives,” he said. “Recognition and treatment against sepsis is a race against time.”

The most common infections that can lead to sepsis include lung infections, such as pneumonia, urinary tract infection, gut infection, and skin infection.
