If you cherish creativity, then this is your vision, your goal. Stick to your vision and have the confidence in whatever that you want to do. Your work will always speak for you and if you like your work surely many people will like it too and does not mean everybody will like it, because it is human nature to like and dislike.  Put commitment and focus into your work, work hard and find those who share the same interest in your work and network with them.

YOUR SKILLS AND CHARACTERISTICS WILL SPEAK FOR YOU

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME NECESSITY:

Necessity is the mother of invention as the saying goes, but what does this mean in a simple language.  Well, it is right to say that it means putting your mind, body, love and soul into your passion and achieving extraordinary positive results.  A necessity in demand to break free of a situation in need.

Today, it is clear that if we want something different in our lives, we will have to do something different too.  Change our styles of thinking to experiment that fundamental skills. Everyone has a skill beneath called passion.  We all have a passion, such as hobbies and what else that we love doing outside our normal duty of responsibility.  Many people excel in life with their passionate hobbies instead of what they studied in school, vocational training or trade.

Everyone has possession of one or more passionate skills.  These skills come as a gift or developed knowledge of creativity. It is what we love doing, singing, sports, dancing, drawing, pottering, writing and acting. Others include communicators, caregivers, engineering, mathematicians, poetry, comedian, to mention a few.  A must skill to break through a circumstance.

UTILISE YOUR POTENTIAL

Utilise your potential to connect with the force that drives your determination, ambition,  vision, energy and ability to identify that inner confidence, an unshakable belief in yourself, to fulfil that potential.

Life is a journey. There are occasions when things become too hard, too much, or even too big to apprehend, and then we want to give up.  Don’t give up instead show empowerment over the situation and aim to achieve your goal, come what may.

Here at SaintAlexandra, many at times we wanted to give up.  But, when it comes to potential and passion, we realise everything is possible if we want it enough, and if we put in the hard work, and unleash the passion and power to achieve our goals, we may make it.  We also recognise the fact that we must take acknowledgement, the success of taking the first step, here we find the energy to carry on.  We know success will come at some point but to keep trying.

SUCCESS OR PASSION

Success does not come in one day, it takes time and planning.  Overall, the starting point is self willingness to go the extra mile, confidence, determination, focus and commitment.  You can always say to yourself, yes, l can do this by taking a chance.  Listen to the inspiration of your inner mind, seek Wisdom and share opinion.  Sharing of opinion, many will say don’t sell out your ideas, but how will the idea be put into the test to ascertain if the public will accept your idea or not.  It also encourages verbal research among people when we share ideas, you only need to find those who share the same interest as yours, and it is cost-effective compared to actual ideological research.

Necessity is the mother of invention.  However, it is hard work, but with determination, the sky will be the limit no matter how long it takes.  A little prayer also helps to find Wisdom, inspiration and goals: the strength, motivational tools, and all people to help where necessary.  When there is no godfather or godmother, no pillar to lean on, then you must find your pillar by yourself.  Networking is a good source of a pillar, practice your skills most often and find a mentor. Success does not mean it has to be a one-day breakthrough.  It takes steps, and each step is an accomplishment leading to the next level.  Patience is also a virtue between self passion and success.

Ensure to find your necessity and fulfil your dreams.  Take courage and attempt.  It is positive to try and fail instead of not trying at all. When we try and fail, we learn, we look back and find realisation, then make an amendment, and try again, surely we will make it.  You can be whatever that you wish to be, for the future is in your own hands.   May we find the course to rejoice and enjoy life with the fruits of our labour.

HANDWASHING IS PARAMOUNT

 HAND WASHING IS IMPORTANT:  

Hand washing is not a new word it has existed for many years right from creation. Guess we first learn how to wash our hands at home and then school.  In health, Nurses talk about handwashing and even attend courses on this subject “The handwashing technique”, but, little said about educating the public under health promotion.

HAND WASHING FOR EVERYONE

Male doctor examining intensive care patient

The hands touch all parts of our body and material things, the hair when scratching and the entire body. We sneeze, toileting, touching clothes, both clean and dirty. One fascinating observation is the railway station’s stair rails, escalators, we all hold these rails and how many of us ever think to wash our hands afterwards, even before eating or touching other things that are already clean.  We spread the dirtiness from our hands, to clean environments.  We must wash our hands always.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HANDWASHING

Handwashing is critical because through the hands we get food poisoning, allergic reactions, flu and infections, among others.  Our nails should be kept clean, short and presentable.  There are many nail file package in the market that need not break the purse, and there is no need to visit the nail technician every week but at least once a month or as recommended by your technician, moreover, as finance allow us to do so.  However, remember to check if you have high blood sugar (Diabetes).  And if yes, there are many measures to prevent skin cut as healing does take time with diabetic clients.

Handwashing is part of the activities of daily living.  We must wash our hands, but the fact remains that how many washing facilities are available.  Take for instance, at the train station you only see washing sink in the ladies and gents facilities and nowhere else.  The restaurants have no sinks for customers, and shops have no implementation of washing hands or cleansers before touching selling clothes and shoes.  Food supermarkets equally share the same attitude, etc.

However, we need to improve this area of health care for all.  Bus stations the same thing, no facilities.  At the hospitals, almost the same except that few Wards have hallway sinks for everyone to wash their hands, but generally, the answer is no.  Moreover, l have seen a few healthcare professionals not washing clients hands and serving them food, and not given them hand towels to clean their hands after using the commode, they argue, but we the Nurses have done the cleaning.  Well, this group of clients are used to washing hands at home after using facilities, and such a habit should continue irrespective.

Intensive care unit, and trauma care unit

Similarly, in Intensive Care Units, there are sinks availabilities but not at the door entrance or hallways.  Hospitals should show good examples by providing handwashing sinks right at the primary access to the hospitals because staff and visitors have just come off their cars, trains, buses and touched objects, hands need washing but no accessibilities.

TEACH THE YOUNG GENERATION

We should teach the young generation the importance of handwashing before and after activities, and it is paramount in health promotion.  Hand washing is part of preventive measures from becoming ill.  Everyone irrespective of age or health condition.  Both sick and sound minds should endeavour to wash their hands or carry good hand cleansers in their work bags, school bags and business bags.  A healthy lifestyle includes regular hand washing, do this most often and enjoy a good quality of life.

HANDWASHING A KEY TO GOOD HEALTH

THE LAW OF THE ROAD

THE LAW OF THE ROAD:

The law of the road must be adhered to and obey.  Many occasions l have observed rough drivers and intimidations, especially when there is opposite sex on the wheel.

WHAT IS THE POINT

The point is that it is not how good or how bad we are on the road.  We must think of other road users and yourself.  I work across Intensive Care Units and have treated and caring for trauma clients.  It is not fun when this happens, and any family will agree that it is not fun.

Male doctor examining intensive care patient

 

There are many reasons and factors why there are rules, dos and don’ts on the major roads, streets and rural villages.  If we obey, then, everyone is safe.  Had l  known is not always the best outcome of any situation, because at such point, perhaps too late?  Prevention is still the best policy.  Eat well, sleep well, exercise and have fun, look fresh in the morning and start the day with gladness.  Happiness comes from within, and with gifted joy, the sky is the limit in doing what is right and just.

RECOMMENDATION

Follow the law of the road. Know your left from right, obey the recommended miles in any Country roads, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and you the driver and your passengers will be safe as well as other road users.  We all know what l am talking about, and it is not new to anyone, especially drivers.  Drive safe and keep safe.  Check the DVLA site regularly to see updated articles and recommendations.

It is crucial to think of actions, responsibilities and consequences.  Do not drink-drive or under the influence of some form of drugs and is hyperactive.  Check your medication side effects, that it does not contain drowsiness.  If feeling unwell, do not drive and also listen to your instinct, sometimes we have this strange feeling like “l don’t feel like driving” best to listen to oneself.  We are accountable for our actions, and ignorance is no excuse, they said.  Therefore, we should take responsibility at all cost.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO DRIVE

It is a pleasure to drive.  Keep your driving particulars updated, ensure your driving license is up to date.  Respect the roads and the road users, drive like a professional. How you drive presents your personality to other drivers and all the roads users.  The mannerism of the road demands respect, control, focus, attention and obedient. No matter how late we are to a destination, there is no need to disobey the law of the streets and highway, because when unexpected happens, then, we are unable to continue the journey anyway. Therefore, organise your time, go to bed early, early to bed and early to rise. Take a walk, get some fresh air and have holidays booked to enhance relaxation, eat well and keep fit.   Avoid rushing by all means and stay safe.  Let us show our young ones the best practice.  Obedience is the beginning of Wisdom.

 

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR ACTIONS:  DRIVE SAFE!

 

 

ELECTROLYTES

THE FUNCTIONS OF ELECTROLYTES:


The functions of electrolytes in the body system are amazing and how to get it balanced is by having a healthy diet.  Firstly, electrolytes in human beings consist of sodium, calcium, potassium.  Also, magnesium, bicarbonate, chloride and phosphate.  Proper maintenance has its functional roles in our body system, and yet individual electrolyte works together to compensate each other.  The simple fact is that electrolytes are good for us because it helps with regulations of nerves and muscles.  Also, it balances the blood acidity and improves hydration. 

Electrolytes serve as a maintenance to the cardiovascular system, respiratory, neurology, renal system.  The kidneys play a significant role and electrolyte help as a building block of cells for clinical normality. These are like a substance that controls electricity once dissolve in water. This area of health-care should be looked into for individuals, to achieve a healthier living and preventive effects of signs and symptoms of severe low maintenance.

SOURCES OF ELECTROLYTES

Several factors lead to gaining and losing these maintenances in our body system. Similarly, there are supplements specifically made to boost our electrolytes, and some people are medically in need of such supplements.  Firstly, we get all of the maintenance through food and vegetables. Yes, the food that we freshly cook in our kitchens, mainly none process vegetables and fruits, where possible, are very active.  Homemade food is always the best and a better outcome.

A balanced diet can give us adequate support such as spinach, kale, avocados and broccoli — also, potatoes, beans, almonds, peanuts and tomatoes — besides, olives, raisins and fruits, in general, are good sources.  The tubers (potatoes), white-beans and banana are good sources of potassium consumption. Avocado, vegetables and fruits, experts suggest. Chicken, turkey, fish such as flounder, soybeans, buttermilk and yoghurt too, are inclusive.  Best to have a balanced diet, keep up with the five fruits a day and all electrolytes should be up to clinical parameters.

Speak to your doctor should there be any concerns or a Nutritionist.  It is paramount to maintain a balanced diet and to keep electrolytes up to the level required for individuals.

WHY DO WE LOSE OUR MAINTAINANCE

We lose these maintenances due to medical instability, and electrolytes need balancing.  However, because of some medical conditions, such as poor diet, a prolonged period of vomiting and diarrhoea.  And, also polyuric episodes, dehydration after exercises, as a result of insensible loss through sweat. Some medication also causes loss of electrolytes, take diuretics, for instance.  Age is also a factor; severe dehydration and malnourishment also drop electrolytes level.

HOSPITAL NURSING CARE

Hospital-based care and the community Nurses and Doctors will monitor the maintenance level.  A blood sample to the laboratory and the results will tell the concentration level.  If the results show a low level, the Nurses will replace the particular maintenance and bring it up to the standard required.  Also, if the electrolytes become high such as potassium, for instance, this is reversible to bring it down to the average level and prevent the effects of cardiac instability.  Sodium, calcium and magnesium should not be too high or, too low either. It is recommendable that everyone knows about electrolytes and its functions, and what to do in the event of imbalances.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND EFFECTS ON STROKE:  

Health Fit Treatment Wellness Concept

High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it is the most significant risk factor for stroke.  Both lifestyle changes and medication can help to lower your blood pressure and so reduce the risk of stroke.  Both lifestyle changes and medication can help to lower blood pressure and thus reduce the risks associated with strokes.

THE BLOOD PRESSURE

Doctor and nurse talking to a patient in a hospital ward

The heart pumps blood all around the body through arteries.  Blood pressure is a measure of how strongly the blood passes against the walls of the arteries.  If this pressure is too high, it puts a strain on the highways and the heart, which makes it more likely that individual will suffer health problems such as stroke, a heart attack, or kidney disease.

High blood pressure varies throughout the day.  It can go down if you are asleep or sitting quietly and can go up if you are rushing about or stressed.  High blood pressure develops when the strength of the blood running through the arteries is consistently too high.  The medical term for high blood pressure is hypertension.

High blood pressure is a common problem, affecting millions of people throughout the world.  It often has no symptoms; so having it measured is the only way to tell if blood pressure is high.

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND STROKE

If you have high blood pressure untreated to keep it under control, it increases the risk of having a stroke.  High blood pressure is the single most significant risk factor for stroke, causing about 50 per cent of strokes due to a blockage (Ischaemic strokes).  It also increases the risk of bleeding in the brain (called a haemorrhagic stroke).

Young man taking the blood pressure of an older lady

High blood pressure puts a strain on all the blood vessels throughout the body, including the ones leading to the brain.  As a result, the heart has to work much harder to keep the blood circulation going.  This strain can damage the blood vessels, causing them to become harder and narrower, a condition called atherosclerosis.  It makes a blockage more likely to occur, which could cause a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA, sometimes called a mini-stroke).

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE 

High blood pressure can develop for a variety of reasons.  Lifestyle factors such as being overweight, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not exercising and eating an unhealthy diet can all lead to high blood pressure.  Blood pressure tends to rise as we get older, so the pressure is more common in middle-aged and older people.  Underlining medical conditions leads to high blood pressure in some cases.  Some people are also more at risk than others.  Blood pressure problems can run in families and certain ethnic groups, such as South Asian and African-Caribbean.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE BLOOD PRESSURE

Measuring blood pressure is quick, painless and straightforward.  Measurement is carried out at the doctor’s surgery in the community and in-patient at the hospitals. Individuals can take their blood measurement at home with blood pressure monitors. A cuff is placed around your arm and then inflated, while a machine records your blood pressure. Sometimes the doctor will use a stethoscope to listen to the blood flow more significant if irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation is present.

 DIAGNOSES AND TREATMENT

Before being diagnosed with high blood pressure, doctors may take a few readings over days or weeks to make sure that the top results are consistent, and it’s not a reaction to being at the surgery or in the hospital.  Some people feel anxious about having their blood pressure taken and have a high reading then when at other times the blood pressure is normal. The condition is called white coat hypertension. Check with your doctor for diagnoses.

Most people with high blood pressure will need to take medication to reduce it.  Changing lifestyle can also help to bring it down. The doctor will usually aim to reduce the upper figure of blood pressure to lower numbers.  If diabetes, strokes or heart attack is present, the aim will be to reduce the blood pressure even further.  To achieve this target is not always possible, but small reductions in the blood pressure can significantly reduce the risk of having a stroke.

THE KEY TO SUCCESS

The key to success, they said, “We become what we think about”. A man’s life is what he makes of it.

The mind is powerful and should not be taking for granted. Think positive, and it will all become a success.  Do the things you enjoy most and make it become your goal. However, first, know your potential and believe in yourself.  A Doctor pays the price to become a doctor by studying for many years and become successful — an architect study to grow that he wants to represent following his goal. The Facebook owner knows what he wanted, and he invested time on his goal, concentration, focus, and so are other professions and businesses.  A President of a Nation wishes to become a President before finally becoming a President or a Prime Minister. Know your goal, stick to it, pursue it and invest time on it and success will come, however, not in one day but over time, surely and definitely.

THE KEY TO SUCCESS

The key to your success begins by creating a goal and follow it up as long as it takes.  Keep thinking about your plan, and an answer will come to you.  A greater Force will guide you in the right direction, but first, you must believe in yourself and your goal.  If you think positive, you will achieve positive.  Be determined for nothing is impossible. Ask, and you Shall Receive!

To be successful, it is not one day’s job. Some creativity and plans take years to accomplish. Therefore, it will require time, concentration, determination and confidence. Above all, patience and commitment is an essential skill, plus charismatic are most needed.  Some people talk about circumstances that they find themselves, but, those who wish for success do not blame circumstances; instead, they look for a way to break free, and if unable to find a way out, they make a way out of the situation.

SUCCESS OR FAILURE

If you have a goal, then you know where you are going, without a goal making a living is difficult.  Nothing can defeat a Will and a Goal. Because, where there is a Will and a Goal, there is a success. The most significant discovery is that a human being can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind.  If you only care about positive result certainly almost successful.  People always blame circumstances; if you cannot find answers, then make them.

If you think in negative terms, you will achieve negative, and if you believe in positivity, you will achieve positive results, it is that simple. Ask, and you shall receive. They said, your goal will surely come true if you persevere and believe.

BALANCE DIET

food pyramid turn into pie chart against the white background

A balanced diet is an essential factor that improves the building block of cells in the human body.  A balanced diet is utmostly necessary for our activities of daily living.

Similarly, our organs and tissues need adequate nutrition to work effectively. Therefore, without proper food, our health is prone to many types of infections, diseases, fatigue — also, tiredness, sleepiness, disorientation and poor performance.  However, balance diet comes with discipline, knowledge and cost.

DIET AND HOMEOSTASIS

Vegetable salad with broiled salmon and pine nuts

Although, knowing about the different food types makes it easier to make choices about our daily diet.  Protein from meat, a fish type that has oil, helps our body cells to grow and repair.  Fish oil is good for the functions of the brain.  Similarly, a proper diet maintains functioning homeostasis, and homeostasis is responsible for maintaining the healthy functioning of the body.  A healthy human body should have a body temperature of 36-37-C, the optimum temperature for enzymes to function.

Also, the functions of homeostasis are to maintain a healthy cell balance within internal organs and the environment.  And, overall balance within the body regarding its temperature, water concentration, salt concentration, and food intake.  Generally, living organisms need to maintain homeostasis regularly to grow correctly, work, and survive.

WHAT IS YOUR BALANCE DIET

A diet consisting of different types of food, and providing adequate amounts of the nutrients that are necessary for good health is essential.  Therefore, speak to your Nutritionist to recommend Eatwell guide for you. Look out for food allergens, ensure you know what you are allergic to regarding ingredients when cooking and buying food from a restaurant.

The advantage of BMI calculation is to find out whether we have a healthy weight for our height and what to do about it, if overweight or obese. Firstly, a healthy weight means not being underweight or overweight.  A BMI of 20-25 is considered healthy for most adults between 18-65 years of age.  Putting on weight and trying to lose weight is hard work.  Therefore, do not be disheartened or demotivated if progress is slow while trying to lose weight.  It is essential to decide on small practical changes that you feel comfortable with, and that you can stick to, that enhances the weight loss process.  It is very much quicker to add weight, and that’s why it is paramount to measure the type of diet, organise timetable for eating and cut off unhealthy food habits.

Eating a healthy balanced diet accompanied by a regular exercise is essential in maintaining physical, mental health and well-being.  Moreover, a daily practice not only useful in preventing excess weight gain or in maintaining weight loss but a healthier lifestyle that is also associated with improved sleep and mood.  Overall, regular exercise will burn off excessive calories leaving body weight healthy and reducing belly fat, arms, thigh and face fats.

Drink enough water to retain balance hydration.  Water is good, and it regulates blood pressure and renal function. Full hydration will prevent dryness of the skin and nourish your skin.  It prevents dizziness, tiredness, headaches, dry, cracked lips and tongue.

In Summary, a balanced diet is a necessity for a healthy life.  Concentrate on a healthy diet, exercises, be disciplined with good eating habits, avoid stress and manage your working hours to allow “There is life outside work”.
