And the likelihood of people coming down with heat exhaustion, heat stress or even developing heatstroke is high. What is Heat Exhaustion? Heat exhaustion according to Mayo Clinic is a condition induced by high exposure to a combination of high temperature, high humidity, and strenuous physical activity. It is expressed in the form of heavy sweating, and a rapid pulse; a result of your body’s overheating. What is heat stress? Heat stress on the other hand is a condition where the body overheats and puts stress on the body. This could lead to heat cramps or heat stroke in more severe cases. We cannot deny that nature is God’s gift to mankind to enjoy. Practically everyone talks about trying to eat, live or be more in tune with nature, but there are

Hello everyone, it’s been awhile since I last posted any article. I took out time to attend to some pressing personal issues.  It feels good to be back. So here is a post to help you position yourself on the right track this year and reach for your dreams. I hope you succeed in your endeavors’ this year. Enjoy!

Starting out in a new year can be quite challenging for anyone without any pre planned activities or schedule to follow. 

Just knowing that there’s a lot that can be done within the year is not enough if you do not have a concise list of activities, or ideas to follow through with.

Even if that’s the case with you, you can still achieve so much without having to stress yourself mentally with what you can do. 

You do not have to come up with this list or ideas; all you need to do is look at what has worked with others and simply copy such.

So let’s get down to business

Break free from fear of failure: It is normal to want to remain in a certain job because it pays the bills, maintain a routine, and avoid certain paths because you are scared to shake tables. 

It is often said that what you’re afraid of may just be the route to your remarkable growth.

Why not take courage and break all past beliefs that seem to hold you back from reaching your dreams and try your hands on something new.  I have a full post on breaking free from fear here. 

You could start by making a list of what you would never dare to attempt. The answer to why you would not step into these areas will throw more light on the things you fear the most.

Forgive all who hurt you even if they don’t deserve it: With the year just starting, it would be nice to free yourself from all the excess load that piled up grievances adds to your life. 

Forgiveness is usually hard and feels like you are such a fool to let go. But when you do, it makes you happier, more relaxed to focus on more important tasks and better placed to achieve all your dreams. 

This act should be extended to those who went all out to break and cause you great harm and as such should not deserve your forgiveness.

Invest time to learn how money works: Having a good financial education should be high in your list of priorities. You must not dwell on how much you stand to earn, or how much you save per month. 

Neither should the focus be on how much you want to invest or the different investment possible.

Instead, you should spend time to get a good financial education as this will be the basis on which to properly put aside what to save, invest, and which investment portfolio to take up. 

When you spend time to learn more about money, you will be forced to have a meaningful outlook to how money can work for you.

In the midst of the recession that the on going pandemic has thrown many nations into, you will have a clear perspective on how to increase your wins instead of idly watching while others take money away from your based on your wrong choices. 

So, change your financial future by spending time to properly educate yourself about how money works. The best part is that you can learn this easily online.


Learn an unconventional online course: With the rise in the demand for work from home jobs, where you get paid simply for your skills, it becomes pertinent to get new skills. 

The good part is the fact that these courses come at a cheap cost and can be found on several platforms like Khan Academy, Teachable and Udemy.

Search through these platforms and choose a skill that will allow you find work online as more and more work happen online,

Take ownership of your life: Taking responsibility and accepting ownership for your shortfalls helps you move forward and improve your life. Whether you accept it or not, the events and outcomes of your life is dependent on your ability to identify your weaknesses and owning up to your faults instead of blaming others for your failures and shortcomings.

If you have been following my posts, you would have noticed that I did not post any article for December and it was no body’s fault. Owning up to one’s faults helps you improve and do better.

Write down your thoughts: Put your thoughts on paper. While this may seem burdensome and childish to some people, it is a way to pull together your thoughts to create a clear picture. 

This picture can easily be followed through to create a more tangible product. 

This is possible because you get to see the direction your thoughts are pointing towards. And so makes putting your thoughts on paper an activity that should not be overlooked for its ability to change your life for good.  

Say no to huge asks without feeling guilty: This year you must take a firmer stand against allowing others to exploit you by learning to say no to huge favors from people who eat up your time and energy. 

Time is of essence and should be treasured and not wasted in a bid to satisfy people who would never return such favors.

Invest such time into your business and grow your business into a more profitable venture.

Map out a new career path: If you do not draw any form of satisfaction from your current job or career then why not try out a different career path that will give you the much desired satisfaction. 

You may need to take a few courses to fit in the new career path, but by all means if this new path is what you need do not let fear hold you back. Plunge in and give yourself the satisfaction and peace you desire. 

Watch the books you read: Having read a lot of books in the last 3 months, I’ve come to realize that most books are not worth the space they take on your device. I spent so much time reading books that I just couldn’t get the heck of the storyline.

Declutter and clear out old junk: Create space for new things and clear out all old junk that is taking up space in your home. This will allow you see things from a new perspective and give you courage to take on new tasks. You could even make a little cash if you sell off your old unused items.

Clear out unnecessary phone apps: There are lots of phone apps that take up the storage space of our devices without being used at all or frequently. These tend to slow your device and consume data especially if they update frequently or run in the background. Only keep useful and relevant apps on your phones.
