DID YOU SLEEP WELL?

I HOPE YOU SLEPT WELL?

When you wake up in the morning and take a scroll through your social media feeds, you will observe that the basic greetings from almost everyone are:
Good morning; how are you? I hope you slept well?
Many times, we reply yes, knowing you barely had a 3-hour sleep after having a work, movie, or prayer vigil.

✅ In today's Wellness Wednesday, I share with you cues on how to enjoy your sleep better.


💤SLEEP is the Golden Link that binds our body processes together.

Research has shown that there is a specific cell possess that will not function maximally unless your body gets adequate sleep. As an Adult, you need 8 hours of sleep to replenish your body cycle at Maxim.

Here are cues that will help you get good sleep

1. SET A SLEEPING TIME
Depending on the nature of your work, set a time to shut down all activities and go to bed and a time to wake up.
Your time frame could be:  from 10 p.m - 5 a.m or  11pm - 6 a.m) But let it be at least 6 to 8 hours.

2. TURN OFF EXPOSURE TO LIGHT
Light-giving objects, like bulbs, lamps, TVs, and Phones, should be switched off. Once your eyes are still focused on light, you will not be able to concentrate your mind and body to sleep.

3. YOUR DIET
Keep track of what you eat before going to bed.
Heavy calorie or sugary meals, excessive fluid intake, or alcohol distorts your sleep cycles; you want to eat more and urinate frequently.

4. YOUR ENVIRONMENT
How comfortable the place you sleep in matters; if it's noisy, poorly ventilated, bed type☺️, positions do matter in you getting good sleep.

5. YOUR THOUGHTS
What you think before going to bed matters! no wonder the Bible says don't let your anger go down the sun. My friends, think about things that make you happy and full of virtues before going to bed.

6. EXERCISE
Have a few body stretches before jumping on that bed to sleep. This increases blood flow around the body and improves your sleep.

    Don't say, "who sleep helps o" No matter how busy you want to get, you are only putting your wellness at risk of:

1. Poor mental functioning
2. High blood pressure
3. Frequent headaches
4. Low body energy level
5. Depression and emotional instability.
6. Low Immune System
7. Weight Loss

A LITTLE SLUMBER YOU AVOID! IT CAN WEAKEN YOUR WELLNESS! SO SLEEP😴



Best,

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.

DISCIPLINE: without this, no man can be truly su

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

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.

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