STAYING BALANCED IN YOUR BODY ELECTROLYTES LEVELS

Ever wondered why you are advised to drink fluids to keep the body functional and hydrated?

Have you ever wondered if the saving tip for people with diarrhea or vomiting is to drink more fluids?

Have you ever asked why your nutritionist says to take fresh fruit juices rather than additives-packed juice?

Ever wondered why persons who have high sweating rates are advised to drink adequate fluids?

If you have ever asked or never wondered why? I got great news for you; In today's Tuesday tips, I will share with you what body electrolytes are? And why you must stay full of it.


WHAT ARE BODY ELECTROLYTES?


Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals and compounds that help your body do much of its work.

We get them from what we eat and drink, including sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, etc.

Their balance in the body is controlled mainly by hormones manufactured in the kidney and the adrenal glands.


WHY STAY FULL OF BODY ELECTROLYTES


1. They oversee your body's energy production and muscle contraction.

2. Transmission of nerve signals from heart, muscle, and nerve cells to other body cells.

3. They stimulate the thirst mechanism to make you drink more fluids when the body dehydrates.

4. Keep the pH (acid/alkaline) of your blood in the normal range

5. They regulate the fluid levels in your blood plasma and body, as the body is made of about 70% fluid.

6. They facilitate blood clotting in hemorrhage and serve as a building block for cell tissues.


WELLNESS CUES

Electrolyte levels can be measured in blood tests, and their stories must stay within a balanced range. Too much or too little of these electrolytes can cause grave health conditions (Heart failure, Kidney disease, Eating&Sleep disorders, Liver cirrhosis, Thyroid disease, etc.)

Cells malfunctioning symptoms include Lethargy, Numbness, Confusion, Cramps, Weakness, Swelling, Coma, High blood pressure, constipation, etc.

Here are TIPS for you to STAY BALANCED

1. Drink up and stay hydrated.

2. Eat foods rich in electrolytes, e.g., spinach, turkey, potatoes, beans, avocados, oranges, soybeans, strawberries, and bananas.

3. Cut down on consuming refined foods high in sodium, whose high intake poses a threat to your health.

4. Quit Alcoholism and smoking

5. Reduce your intake of green tea, as it is a diuretic (a substance that causes you to urinate more frequently), and increase the washing out of your body's electrolytes.

6. Avoid abusing medications such as steroids, diuretics, and laxatives.

7. Depending on your electrolyte disorder, consult your healthcare provider on the proper medications or supplements.


You have received clarity on the need to stay full and balanced of your body electrolytes, do have a refreshing night's rest.

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

THE 10X RULE - Grant Cardone

Hi guys, I have been on diet with this book: The 10X Rule , authored by Grant Cardone, an entrepreneur, and sales motivation coach; and want to share the value I got with you. The book is a must-read if you seek to achieve success in your personal life and business. It comprises 23 Chapters built around a discipline called the "10X Rule; which is about pure domination mentality. You never do what others do, you must be willing to take actions and do what you or others might deem unreasonable.

Thus to be an extremely successful person you must know that your efforts must continue in order for them to realize new achievements. ~ In life or business, many people make mistakes of underestimating the time, energy, and effort required to achieving their set goals.

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
