REFRESHING HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHERRY

If you were born in Nigeria like me, at a point in your childhood, you would have sung the song! agbalumo sweet o! Sweet o sweet o!
If you haven't, now is the time.

Cherry, the African star apple also know as agbalumo, udara in yoruba, and Igbo dialect respectively.

It is both delicious and nutrient-packed fruit offered to us by nature.

Here are some of its fantastic health benefits.

1. Rich in vitamin C: Cherry contains high Vitamin C content, an important vitamin need to maintain your body optimal function.
A 100g of the fruit gives about 25mg of vitamin C.

2. Bone & Cartilage Health: From the prevention of mouth gum disease to the tackling of toothache as well as sore throat, vitamin C prevents scurvy and arthritis.

3. Anticancer Agent and Immune Booster: a readily available source of anti-oxidants, which help strengthen the immune system and prevent the damages caused by free radicals that can lead to cancer.

4. Good for expecting mothers: The acidic taste of cherry help balance stomach acid and prevent the urge of vomiting during pregnancy.

5. Weight Management: A good source of fructose. Studies have shown that a fruit serving gives 67 calorie, and thus aid in maintaining weight to prevent obesity and diabetes.

6. Improves your Digestive Health: It's rich ascorbic acid and fibre content, is a natural remedy for health conditions such as constipation, sore throat, and indigestion.

My dear client, So when next you come across the African star apple screaming eat me🍒 make sure you don't just pass it by, rather get some to nourish you; as It blooms between December and April. 🍑

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

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.

And boom, I had my eureka moment; image resolution was perfectly loaded. I sighed in joy and in retrospective, I understood that t
