10 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Health And Well-Being

Our health has a lot to do with managing our level of stress. In particular, we tend to spend a lot of time and energy stressing over money and material possessions. We need money in order to survive, and some stress is normal (even healthy), but where we get into trouble is when we spend too much time and energy trying to obtain things that we don’t actually need. We end up sacrificing some of the more important things we have (health, relationships, etc.) to obtain things we think will make us happier, but usually don’t.

Our health (physical, mental, and spiritual) is our greatest source of wealth. If we have our health, and the bills are paid, we’re rich.
Here are 10 things you can do every day to improve your health and well-being:

Spend time alone in silence ie; meditation/prayer.

Be thankful for what you have.

Keep a journal of your thoughts.

Write down whatever comes to mind.

Eat healthy food and drink clean water.

Get 30 to 60 minutes of exercise.

Mix it up throughout the week, lots of walking, some strength training, joint mobility exercises, and other activities that you enjoy, such as running, swimming, yoga, etc.

Go to bed early and try to wake up naturally, without an alarm. Most people need around 8 hours. Some high-performance people sleep as much as 10 hours a day (Einstein supposedly slept 10 hours). Some people only need about 5 or 6 hours, but they are by far the minority, only about 4% of the population is in this category.

Try to live in the moment.

 Don’t dwell on the past or the future too much.

Focus on your breathing, this will help to bring you back to the present.

 Avoid holding conversations in your mind.

Turn off distractions, especially when talking to people, working, meditating, etc.

 Keep background noise and entertainment to a minimum.

 Read, listen, or watch something funny. Or be around people who make you laugh.

Spend time with someone important to you, your spouse, children, parents, etc.

Read something interesting/educational, preferably a book that makes you see things from a new perspective or causes you to contemplate your purpose in life.

How To Stay Happy Forever

A lot of people have been feeling sad about how things have gone from bad to worse in their lives. Because of this, they are not always happy. Perhaps, they felt they could had been much more better with this or that.

The truth is, you can never be happy if you always attach your happiness to one thing or the other because human need is insatiable according to economics. That's why we all have mood swings at various levels or point.

Get this right now, nobody can make you happy. You choose to be happy. Until you understand your life is centered around you alone. Till you see that things are not enough to make you happy, you will always be sad.

Here are tips to help you stay happy forever...

Accept human being for who they are. He who makes you cry today, can make you smile tomorrow. Human beings are bound to change anytime. Learn to accept them the way they are.

Never demand too much from anything. When you are free from that, nothing will always affect your mood. Try expect little or nothing from anything. That will always make you have a plan B.

Live with what have and don't plan on what you don't have. The joy of life is appreciating what you have and being satisfied with them. The more you only think about what you don't have, happiness will be far from you. True happiness is being seen with what we say we own and we are contented with them rather than being seen as what we are but we are not.

Always know that good and bad things happen to everyone. Don't always see yourself as a victim of casualty. Everyone has tough times as well. The difference between you and them is they don't show you they have bad days. You are always quick to show them how your day had been so bad.

Live a debt free life. Ensure you know how to manage during scarcity. That's the key aspect of life. Your attitude when you don't have, really show your maturity. Most people becomes sad at any slight in change.

Plant the seed of happiness in people around you. Life is always evolving, so if it turns to the good side for you. Try to raise people and make them happy. One of them will definitely be there for you when things turn sour.

Let go every fight with your friends or partner. Learn to forgive and move on in life. We will always have misunderstanding because we all want to exhibit our own right and freedom. Whenever there's a rift between you and someone, ensure you let go easily.

Life is too short to be sad. We are not promised eternity. Make your happiness with everything around you. Don't make too enemies especially where you stay for so long. Because you can never be happy.

Feel free to add more in the comment box. Am always open to learning everyday.

Strength of a Woman

Never underestimate the power of a Woman. If you want to be happy, make a woman happy. They are the medicine for your sorrow. The light of your path.

If you are lucky to find a soft hearted one, you are a king. You don't need much money to make her love you. She sees the future in you. She makes your wealth for you. She's part of your history.

She has no power but can pull down a home. She fights you without laying a finger on you. She decides the theme of your movie. She holds the key to your happiness. Your pace in life is determined by her pace.

If you want to move faster, work on her pace. If you want to be the finest, beautify her life. You don't need prayer and fasting, just make her happy. Her joy is your blessing. Her smile is your strength. Her beauty is your glory. Herssatisfactionbbringsaanswertto your prayers.

She gave up her beauty to carry your children. She went through hell to push them out in the labor room. She exposed her breast in public to feed your children. She doesn't go on leave even though all workers go on leave. She has no excuse for not making your food.

She stay in bed with you even when she's weak. She is after your joy. She's your favorite fan. She sees the but in you but accepted you without doubt. She's ready to ride in hell with you. Their type are rare. Some said they are in extinction.

If you are lucky to find one, keep her tight. She's every man's Dream. If you want progress faster, make her happy cuz that the strength of a Woman..... Dedicated to all women in the World.

Things We Got Wrong In Life

I was sitting on my couch thinking about the past. I looked into what have done wrong in the past. My past experience in life. I had the privilege to meet some people some times ago. They shared various lessons  they had learnt as well.

After much dialogue I was able to highlight these few points about life. What we actually got wrong while we were growing.

Sometimes we fall in love thinking it would make us happy forever but we got it all wrong. People with such mindset end up being frustrated. Falling in love is not the medicine for your sadness. Except you understand that only one person decides your happiness and the person is you.

Another thinking we got wrong was thinking marriage is the antidote to sadness. Marriage is a game of two bosses where one must act like subordinate for the other else it is the beginning of the Third World War.

What about money. More money more problems. Going into rituals or kidnapping just to get Money, thinking that's the only means you could be happy. That's a very wrong motive about being happy. You got it all wrong if you think your money will wipe away your sorrow. Life itself is sorrowful. Today we smile and tomorrow we frown.

Going into a business and expecting a very huge profit. Naaa. It doesn't work that way. Hell no. You have to build the business to a certain height and mind you no guaranteed time. You have to keep working. Get your thinking right. If you must run a big business, you must build it big. A millionaire can run a millionaire business, so if you ain't one, forget about it.

Graduating from school with good grades and expecting a very big managerial role or position. Well maybe, it is your family's company. You have to let go of your pride and probably drop your certificate to explore other opportunities if the job ain't coming. Use your head and knowledge to build your dreams.
Life comes to people who believe and work hard. Believe in yourself and stay grounded.

If you want to be happy, make your mindset independent of anything. Trust in yourself. Only you decides when you are happy. Thanks and have a nice day.

God bless the World.

Ways To Inculcate Manners And Moral Values Into Your Children.

A child's brain is like a recording machine, fill it with the right message. You are the reflection of your child(ren)'s attitude. Whatever they do out there is down to what you have inculcated into them. 

Children quickly pick up whatsoever they see in the society. That is why it is important we give them the best of our character when they are growing up. Here I will show you tips you can use to inculcate moral values and manners into your children. Trust me they work well.... 

How to inspire manners in your children

1. When entering the house greet your children or even hug them. This should help develop their sense of love and self worth.

2. Be good to your neighbours and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children listen, absorb and emulate.

3. When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take your children with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.

4. When driving them say to school, don't always play albums or cds (even if my cds!). Rather, tell them the stories yourself. This will have a greater impact - trust me!

5. Read to them a short story and  even a scripture a day – it doesn't take much time, but very impactful in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories. 

6. Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable cloths even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out! 

7. Try not to blame or comment on every word or action they say or do. Learn to overlook and let go sometimes. This certainly builds their self-confidence.

8. Ask your children's permission before entering their rooms. Don't just knock and enter, but then wait for a verbal permission. They will learn to do the same when wanting to enter your room.

9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Apologizing teaches them to be humble and polite.

10. Don't be sarcastic or make fun of their views or feelings, even if you "didn't mean it" and was "only joking". It really hurts.

11. Show respect to your children's privacy. Its important for their sense of value and self-esteem.

12. Don't expect that they will listen or understand the first time. Don't take it personal. But be patient and consistent.

13.Pray with them. Show them how to pray. Lead by example.

*Please share with other parents.

Thanks for your time...

Don't Look Back... That is Your Storm

Maybe if we knew how close we were to success, we wouldn't have stopped. Maybe if we knew life doesn't go without a storm, we would be undisturbed by slight change in situations.

I am talking to someone out there, you have been going through a turbulent moment and you felt like quitting. You have to continue. When you feel tired, it means you are almost there. Think about the past stress, will you let them die off like that? 

I am talking to an entrepreneur, your business is not moving the way you thought it would, despite the fact you had put more passion and resources. If you close it down now, you still have to start afresh with another. You still need same passion, resources and perseverance to start a new one. Meaning you have to hold on.

I am talking to a pastor reading this, your ministry is frustrating you and you are wondering if it was God that actually called you or you had chosen the wrong career. I tell you the truth, working for God is the most difficult thing in life. You need perseverance but the grace is available for you. Only if you would hold on. 

I am talking to a wife or husband reading this article, your home is not the way it started. Marriage has its rigors, you have to endure it. Maybe one day, things will work well.  You have to learn to grow in love. There are storms on the way, don't look back.

What about the students reading this, you have failed over times and you want to quit. Failure is never the opposite of Success but it is part of Success. Quitting is only the easiest way to fail. You have to examine your methods anyway. 

I am talking to an unemployed person, you have been jobless since you graduated. Why wait for so long? Explore new opportunities, create from new ideas. If life doesn't give you bread,  buy cheese. What's important is you have eaten.

I am talking to a sick person, you have been bedridden or carrying a sickness for a while. Tell yourself now that you are strong. Carry yourself up and exercise that hope, faith and believe. Say I Am Strong Through Christ That Strengthens me.

I am talking to a bachelor or spinster, you are fed up because no one is coming right now. Check your attitude. Check yourself and let go of your pride. Stop being harsh, life ain't what it seems. Attitude is everything. 

I am talking to an orphan now, life unbearable for you. You are like a rough Diamond that must go through fire before the beauty can be seen. Stay stronger and bolder, channel your pains on your passion. Everything good will come. 

Talking to everybody, you are like an athlete running, if you stop to answer the crowd. You will never go far. Don't look back, its your Storm. Believe is the key to life. Perseverance makes you enjoy the Dream ahead and Hard Work gives a platform for breakthrough.

 Hold on, God bless you.

7 Basic Principles To Live...

Until you understand that what matters most in life is you, you will always live for others. I keep telling people to live for yourself but care for others. What I mean care for others is showing compassion to people who are down and weary, people who are depressed.

But remember, putting your happiness at the expense of others' need is complete malady. Yes I mean malady. Okay maybe you will agree with me, a man died on struggle because he wants to make the wife happy. The wife gets married to another man or start sleeping with another in few weeks. 

Parents died for the sake of children, the children eventually make it years after and even without the late parents. So what's the difference? A lady drank poison because her boyfriend cheated or broke up with her. It still doesn't stop the guy from marrying another girl. That's life. 

A worker died today and tomorrow, the boss displays vacancy. So nobody is irreplaceable. You are only remembered or treasured because you are alive and we are still seeing you. One day when the worst happens, it doesn't end the world automatically. 

Here are basic principles to living a peaceful life. 

Stay debt free. The best way to deal with frustration in life is by staying debt free. To do that, you must be willing to cut your coat according to your cloth. Nothing compares to living a debt free life. 

Forgive people for their wrongs. The moment you hold grudges against people, the more your happiness is at stake. Try create an environment of peaceful coexistence. Yes I mean peaceful coexistence with people around you. You can't live in isolation, so if people around you are your enemies, then it's a problem. 

Take everything easy. Once you understand living is not forever, everything becomes useless to you. A man worked hard and died, someone else took over the property left. What's the essence of overworking for title, post or position that doesn't stop man from dying. 

Rest well. Take time to rest because you are getting older every second. The older the year, the nearer to grave. Maybe when people say happy birthday to you, they should also remind you that happy death preparation as well. It is not a curse. 

Never worry about tomorrow or the future. You need to do one basic thing, work hard and believe in tomorrow. Just have that feeling it will be good. Even when it seems like it is not going on well with you, just believe. That's the key. 

Plan your life with what you have. Don't live on waiting for that big thing. It could only make your life miserable. Develop your happiness or joy with what you have. Life starts with you, the present and not the future. Start now. Live your dream. 

Do what you love. Nothing gives more joy than doing what you love doing. It brings that satisfaction and joy. Forget the Six figures, do it. Even if it pays little, do it. Is better to be happy doing what you love than doing something else for the bucks. It still leads to frustration. 

Hope someone has been touched by this piece. Share with others out there. The world needs encouragement. 

I love you.
