OCTOBER - BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH


As we close up on October - breast cancer awareness month, the most common cancer in women of all races, with over a hundred thousand cases diagnosed per year in Nigeria.
We ain't stopping the campaign! , but to go on reminding you of how to take proactive measures to win and maintain a healthy breast.

Be reminded of:
1. The risk factors: 
~ Females are more at risk but be informed that breast cancer can also be found in men
~ Your family history and age
~ Lack of physical activity and obesity
~ Women who smoke and drink immoderately
~ Frequent exposure to radiation from radiotherapeutic treatments

2. Signs and symptoms to watch out for:
~ A change in the shape and size of the breast
~ Growth of mass called lumps from the breast tissue
~ Inversion of the #nipples
~ Pigmentation and scarring of the breast skin
~ Discharge of blood or mucosal fluids from the nipples.

🎉 The good news is ~  breast cancer survival rates are rising as screening methods and treatments offered are being improved; 

~ As a lifeline in your community, support cancer fighters in your environment, celebrate the survivors and be sure to show respect to those lost.

~ Wellness Cues: Eat plant-based diet limit intake of alcohol, sodas, sugars, smoked and canned foods, quit smoking 🚭, exercise 🏊‍♂ , and maintain a healthy body mass index ⚖.

~ As a female, check for any change in the shape or look of your breasts on a bi-monthly basis via self-examination (during your ovulation or after your monthly menstrual flow); If you observe any, do see a doctor.

~ Make a biannual mammogram screening part of your yearly schedule.

➡️ Prevention is Primal, and Early Detection is Life Saving 💯⛑

THRIVE BY LEARNING IN DISCIPLINE

Months ago, I bore on to be trained by a successful senior colleague. As an oldie, I sometimes am tempted to skip training by telling myself that I know and have done these things before. After a month, I realized newbies were delivering results I had yet to have. I mustered courage and went to meet my trainer! to access me. IToas confident he would give me the needed spanking and motivational alignment, but lo😭, he said_ hosanna be more disciplined. It took me weeks to readjust, humble myself, and start doing what was needed to cause a shift in my mental attitude; the results I got were changing for the better. I am excited to share these transformational life cues with you today : 1. Be OPEN! Be CURIOUS:  You have to become like a child in any learning sphere. Learn to watch, talk less & do more than average. 2. HUMILITY: This will take you to places and help you learn from nobody and everybody to be Somebody. 3. DISCIPLINE: without this, no man can be truly su

Don't Say! “Why Were The Old Days Better Than These?

Now you hide your face. - Good times you had with your ex-partner! Now you are emotionally broken. - Afford the car of your choice; now you enter standing! Or trek!

DON'T SHRINK! QUALITY REQUIRES PATIENCE

Over last weekend, while uploading contents to my social media handles, a valuable lesson was gained from trying to upload to my blog. I had successfully published the post and shared the link to my social media handles when I realized the image quality was poor. I was disturbed and went back to re-upload the images. For over an hour and a half, the same quality of images was given even after refreshing the web page repeatedly, switching networks, and sitting positions. I finally succumbed to the thought of leaving the image like that, I had logged out of blogger and as I stood up to go about other activities I felt disappointed with myself. The inner me said why would you settle for that, will you or your audience enjoy content with such image quality? I sat back and decided to log in again and delete and upload the images again! And boom, I had my eureka moment; image resolution was perfectly loaded. I sighed in joy and in retrospective, I understood that t
