Risk of Cancer

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread.

Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death, but fortunately about 33% cases can be prevented, according to the World Health Organization. There’s no magic pill to keep you from getting cancer, but you can do some things to improve your odds.

Wear Sunscreen

Harmful rays from the sun can give you more than a sunburn. Ultraviolet radiation can cause skin cancer, the most common kind of cancer in the U.S. Most cases are curable if they’re found and treated early. Sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher can help protect you.

Risk of CancerEat More Vegetables

Vegetables and fruits can help lower your risk of a range of cancers in your mouth, throat, windpipe, and esophagus. These foods have things that help your cells prevent damage that may lead to cancer later. You should get at least 2 1/2 cups of fruits and vegetables a day.

Get cancer screenings

Different types of cancer screenings and tests can check for different types, like breast, colon, prostate, or skin. Consult your doctor to know which of these screenings you really need.

Don’t Reckon With Supplements

It’s better to get nutrients from whole foods than supplements.
A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains is better than nutritional supplements to lower your risk of cancer. Supplements may help with certain conditions, but don’t bet on them to prevent cancer.

Reduce Your Intake of Sugar

Too much of sugar consumption enhances the risk of obesity and cancer.
Foods or drinks with a lot of sugar tend to have more calories per ounce. You don’t have to avoid the sugar entirely, but watch out for food and drinks with added sweeteners.

Get Vaccinated for HPV

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI).
Many people with HPV don’t develop any symptoms but can still infect others through sexual contact. Symptoms may include warts on the genitals or surrounding skin.
There’s no cure for the virus and warts may go away on their own. Treatment focuses on removing the warts. A vaccine that prevents the HPV strains most likely to cause genital warts and cervical cancer is recommended for boys and girls.Girls can get the vaccine between the ages of 9 and 26, and boys from 9 to 21. Using condoms can also lower your chances of getting HPV.

Exercise a Lot

Exercise reduces your risk of several cancers and other health problems.
People who a lot exercise are less likely to get cancer of the colon, breast, or uterus. Being active also can help head off other health problems like heart disease or diabetes.

Avoid Using Tobacco

Do you smoke? It causes various kinds of cancer, as well as heart and lung disease. Tobacco use remains a major preventable cause of cancer.

Drop the Weight

Obesity is a preventable risk factor for cancer.
Nearly 70% of Americans are overweight or obese — and those extra pounds drive up your chances of several types of cancer, including in your esophagus, pancreas, colon, kidneys, and thyroid gland.

Eat Less of Red Meat

Reduce your consumption of red meat along with cured meats like bacon, hot dogs, and lunchmeat, to reduce your risk of colon and stomach cancers.

Reduce Your Intake of Alcohol

Excess alcohol consumption can raise your risk of cancers of the digestive system — your stomach, liver, and colon, among others — as well as breast and throat cancer. It can hurt tissues in your body, damage your liver, and mix with other chemicals to harm your cells.

People living with HIV with advanced disease, those with low CD4 and high viral load and those who are not taking antiretroviral treatment have an increased risk of infections and related complications in general.  It is unknown if the immunosuppression of HIV will put a person at greater risk for COVID-19, thus, until more is known, additional precautions for all people with advanced HIV or poorly controlled HIV, should be employed

At present there is no evidence that the risk of infection or complications of COVID-19 is different among people living with HIV who are clinically and immunologically stable on antiretroviral treatment when compared with the general population.  Some people living with HIV may have known risk factors for COVID-19 complications, such as diabetes, hypertension and other noncommunicable diseases and as such may have increased risk of COVID-19 unrelated to HIV.  We know that during the SARS and MERS outbreaks there were only a few case reports of mild disease among people living with HIV.

To date, there is a case report of a person living with HIV who had COVID-19 and recovered and a small study on risk factors and antiretrovirals used among people living with HIV with COVID-19 from China.  This study reported similar rates of COVID-19 disease as compared to the entire population and increased risk with older age, but not with low CD4, high viral load level or antiretroviral regimen[4]. Current clinical data suggest the main mortality risk factors are linked to older age and other comorbidities including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and hypertension. Some very healthy people have also developed severe disease from the coronavirus infection

PLHIV are advised to take the same precautions as the general population

  • wash hands often
  • cough etiquette
  • physical distancing
  • seek medical care if symptomatic
  • self-isolation if in contact with someone with COVID-19 and
  • other actions per the government response

People living with HIV who are taking antiretroviral drugs should ensure that they have at least 30 days and up to 6-month supply of medicines and ensure that their vaccinations are up to date (influenza and pneumococcal vaccines). Adequate supplies of medicines to treat co-infections and comorbidities and addiction should also be ensured.

1. Fellow Nigerians,

2. From the first signs that Coronavirus, or COVID-19 was turning into an epidemic and was officially declared a world-wide emergency, the Federal Government started planning preventive, containment and curative measures in the event the disease hits Nigeria.

3. The whole instruments of government are now mobilized to confront what has now become both a health emergency and an economic crisis.

4. Nigeria, unfortunately, confirmed its first case on 27th February 2020. Since then, we have seen the number of confirmed cases rise slowly.

5. By the morning of March 29th, 2020, the total confirmed cases within Nigeria had risen to ninety-seven.

6. Regrettably, we also had our first fatality, a former employee of PPMC, who died on 23rd March 2020. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this very difficult time. We also pray for quick recovery for those infected and undergoing treatment.

7. As of today, COVID-19 has no cure. Scientists around the world are working very hard to develop a vaccine.

8. We are in touch with these institutions as they work towards a solution that will be certified by international and local medical authorities within the shortest possible time.

9. For now, the best and most efficient way to avoid getting infected is through regular hygienic and sanitary practices as well as social distancing.

10. As individuals, we remain the greatest weapon to fight this pandemic. By washing our hands regularly with clean water and soap, disinfecting frequently used surfaces and areas, coughing into a tissue or elbow and strictly adhering to infection prevention control measures in health facilities, we can contain this virus.

11. Since the outbreak was reported in China, our Government has been monitoring the situation closely and studying the various responses adopted by other countries.

12. Indeed, the Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) was one of ten global health leaders invited by the World Health Organisation to visit China and understudy their response approach. I am personally very proud of Dr Ihekweazu for doing this on behalf of all Nigerians.

13. Since his return, the NCDC has been implementing numerous strategies and programs in Nigeria to ensure that the adverse impact of this virus on our country is minimized. We ask all Nigerians to support the work the Federal Ministry of Health and NCDC are doing, led by the Presidential Task Force.

14. Although we have adopted strategies used globally, our implementation programs have been tailored to reflect our local realities.

15. In Nigeria, we are taking a two step approach.

16. First, to protect the lives of our fellow Nigerians and residents living here and second, to preserve the livelihoods of workers and business owners to ensure their families get through this very difficult time in dignity and with hope and peace of mind.

17. To date, we have introduced healthcare measures, border security, fiscal and monetary policies in our response. We shall continue to do so as the situation unfolds.

18. Some of these measures will surely cause major inconveniences to many citizens. But these are sacrifices we should all be willing and ready to make for the greater good of our country.

19. In Nigeria’s fight against COVID-19, there is no such thing as an overreaction or an under reaction. It is all about the right reaction by the right agencies and trained experts.

20. Accordingly, as a Government, we will continue to rely on guidance of our medical professionals and experts at the Ministry of Health, NCDC and other relevant agencies through this difficult time.

21. I therefore urge all citizens to adhere to their guidelines as they are released from time to time.

22. As we are all aware, Lagos and Abuja have the majority of confirmed cases in Nigeria. Our focus therefore remains to urgently and drastically contain these cases, and to support other states and regions in the best way we can.

23. This is why we provided an initial intervention of fifteen billion Naira (N15b) to support the national response as we fight to contain and control the spread.

24. We also created a Presidential Task Force (PTF) to develop a workable National Response Strategy that is being reviewed on a daily basis as the requirements change. This strategy takes international best practices but adopts them to suit our unique local circumstances.

25. Our goal is to ensure all States have the right support and manpower to respond immediately.

26. So far, in Lagos and Abuja, we have recruited hundreds of ad-hoc staff to man our call centers and support our tracing and testing efforts.

27. I also requested, through the Nigeria Governors Forum, for all State Governments to nominate Doctors and Nurses who will be trained by the NCDC and Lagos State Government on tactical and operational response to the virus in case it spreads to other states.

28. This training will also include medical representatives from our armed forces, paramilitary and security and intelligence agencies.

29. As a nation, our response must be guided, systematic and professional. There is a need for consistency across the nation. All inconsistencies in policy guidelines between Federal and State agencies will be eliminated.

30. As I mentioned earlier, as at this morning we had ninety-seven confirmed cases. Majority of these are in Lagos and Abuja. All the confirmed cases are getting the necessary medical care.

31. Our agencies are currently working hard to identify cases and people these patients have been in contact with.

32. The few confirmed cases outside Lagos and Abuja are linked to persons who have travelled from these centres.

33. We are therefore working to ensure such inter state and intercity movements are restricted to prevent further spread.

34. Based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, I am directing the cessation of all movements in Lagos and the FCT for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11pm on Monday, 30th March 2020. This restriction will also apply to Ogun State due to its close proximity to Lagos and the high traffic between the two States.

35. All citizens in these areas are to stay in their homes. Travel to or from other states should be postponed. All businesses and offices within these locations should be fully closed during this period.

36. The Governors of Lagos and Ogun States as well as the Minister of the FCT have been notified. Furthermore, heads of security and intelligence agencies have also been briefed.

37. We will use this containment period to identify, trace and isolate all individuals that have come into contact with confirmed cases. We will ensure the treatment of confirmed cases while restricting further spread to other States.

38. This order does not apply to hospitals and all related medical establishments as well as organizations in health care related manufacturing and distribution.

39. Furthermore, commercial establishments such as;

a. food processing, distribution and retail companies;

b. petroleum distribution and retail entities,

c. power generation, transmission and distribution companies; and

d. private security companies are also exempted.

40. Although these establishments are exempted, access will be restricted and monitored.

41. Workers in telecommunication companies, broadcasters, print and electronic media staff who can prove they are unable to work from home are also exempted.

42. All seaports in Lagos shall remain operational in accordance with the guidelines I issued earlier. Vehicles and drivers conveying essential cargoes from these Ports to other parts of the country will be screened thoroughly before departure by the Ports Health Authority.

43. Furthermore, all vehicles conveying food and other essential humanitarian items into these locations from other parts of the country will also be screened thoroughly before they are allowed to enter these restricted areas.

44. Accordingly, the Hon. Minister of Health is hereby directed to redeploy all Port Health Authority employees previously stationed in the Lagos and Abuja Airports to key roads that serve as entry and exit points to these restricted zones.

45. Movements of all passenger aircraft, both commercial and private jets, are hereby suspended. Special permits will be issued on a needs basis.

46. We are fully aware that such measures will cause much hardship and inconvenience to many citizens. But this is a matter of life and death, if we look at the dreadful daily toll of deaths in Italy, France and Spain.

47. However, we must all see this as our national and patriotic duty to control and contain the spread of this virus. I will therefore ask all of us affected by this order to put aside our personal comfort to safeguard ourselves and fellow human beings. This common enemy can only be controlled if we all come together and obey scientific and medical advice.

48. As we remain ready to enforce these measures, we should see this as our individual contribution in the war against COVID-19. Many other countries have taken far stricter measures in a bid to control the spread of the virus with positive results.

49. For residents of satellite and commuter towns and communities around Lagos and Abuja whose livelihoods will surely be affected by some of these restrictive measures, we shall deploy relief materials to ease their pains in the coming weeks.

50. Furthermore, although schools are closed, I have instructed the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to work with State Governments in developing a strategy on how to sustain the school feeding program during this period without compromising our social distancing policies. The Minister will be contacting the affected States and agree on detailed next steps.

51. Furthermore, I have directed that a three month repayment moratorium for all TraderMoni, MarketMoni and FarmerMoni loans be implemented with immediate effect.

52. I have also directed that a similar moratorium be given to all Federal Government funded loans issued by the Bank of Industry, Bank of Agriculture and the Nigeria Export Import Bank.

53. For on-lending facilities using capital from international and multilateral development partners, I have directed our development financial institutions to engage these development partners and negotiate concessions to ease the pains of the borrowers.

54. For the most vulnerable in our society, I have directed that the conditional cash transfers for the next two months be paid immediately. Our Internally displaced persons will also receive two months of food rations in the coming weeks.

55. We also call on all Nigerians to take personal responsibility to support those who are vulnerable within their communities, helping them with whatever they may need.

56. As we all pray for the best possible outcome, we shall continue planning for all eventualities.

57. This is why I directed that all Federal Government Stadia, Pilgrims camps and other facilities be converted to isolation centers and makeshift hospitals.

58. My fellow Nigerians, as a Government, we will avail all necessary resources to support the response and recovery. We remain committed to do whatever it takes to confront COVID-19 in our country.

59. We are very grateful to see the emerging support of the private sector and individuals to the response as well as our development partners.

60. At this point, I will ask that all contributions and donations be coordinated and centralized to ensure efficient and impactful spending. The Presidential Task Force remains the central coordinating body on the COVID-19 response.

61. I want to assure you all that Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies with a role to play in the outbreak response are working hard to bring this virus under control.

62. Every nation in the world is challenged at this time. But we have seen countries where citizens have come together to reduce the spread of the virus.

63. I will therefore implore you again to strictly comply with the guidelines issued and also do your bit to support Government and the most vulnerable in your communities.

64. I will take this opportunity to thank all our public health workforce, health care workers, port health authorities and other essential staff on the frontlines of the response for their dedication and commitment. You are true heroes.

65. I thank you all for listening. May God continue to bless and protect us all.

President Muhammadu Buhari

Pubic lice. Crabs. Genital parasites. Whatever one calls them, they all mean one thing: an embarrassingly itchy penis that necessitates refraining from sexual congress. As penis health issues go, pubic lice are more of a n annoyance than a crisis. Aside from the itchy penis, they may bring about a fever and a feeling of fatigue; and as with any itch situation, scratching too much and too intensely can result in an infection. But otherwise, pubic lice are just a pest.


Some men recommend shaving the pubic hair as a way of getting rid of pubic lice. But is this really the best approach?

On one hand, shaving the hair around the penis and balls does make sense. Pubic lice get their name because they tend to live in pubic hair, so getting rid of their “habitat” would seem a good way to get rid of the little buggers themselves. But looking further into the matter reveals this isn’t really the best treatment.

About pubic lice

As the name implies, pubic lice are similar to the lice commonly found on the head. They too are tiny parasites, but pubic lice generally stick to the pubic area – although they can very occasionally migrate to other hairy parts of the body, such as the chest or armpits.

Pubic lice are also called crabs because – well, because they look like crabs. However, they are very small – about one-tenth of an inch, and smaller when young – so it may be difficult to see their crablike shape in some cases. They start out as eggs (called nits), develop into a nymph phase and then transform into adults.

These parasites like to attach themselves to the skin and start feeding. An intense itch often follows.


If a person already has lice and they shave their pubic hair, it is possible that some of the lice will be caught up by the razor and disposed of. However, shaving alone is unlikely to catch the majority of the lice, and so shaving by itself is not an effective way to get rid of crabs. (By the way, if a person does shave his crotch while crabs are present, he needs to thoroughly wash the razor with very hot water to help kill the lice and send them down the drain. He should then dispose of the razor, in the event that any lice have remained on it.)

While shaving is not an effective way of killing pubic lice, it can be helpful in preventing crabs from infesting. With no pubic hair, they are easier to spot and to target for treatment. And less hair also makes it easier to apply medications aimed at killing the parasites.

Fortunately, there are several over-the-counter remedies for pubic lice that can be purchased at most drug stores. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends either a lotion with an ingredient called permethrin or a mousse with pyrethins and piperonyl butoxide. There are also prescription lotions and shampoos which a doctor can recommend.

Often eggs may be left after treatment and may need to be removed manually.

Clothing, bedsheets and towels should be washed thoroughly to kill any lice which may have fallen off the body.

Even after ridding the body of pubic lice, a guy may still have an itchy penis for a while. Utilizing a top drawer penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) may be helpful. The best cremes help to moisturize delicate penis skin, which can ease the itchy feelings. Look for a crème with both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). Strengthening the skin can also help, so the crème should also include a powerful antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid. This helps fight free radicals that can otherwise cause oxidative damage to the skin.

When it pertains to weight loss, a one-size-fit-all diet plan does not have great results. This is far more important considering that although some could be fine and also wholesome, they can on the other hand be detrimental for several individuals.

However, you will find lots of individuals who assume that since a food item is considered "healthy" and "good" suggests that they are totally free to eat just as much of it as they would like while not having any sort of consequence.

The argument regarding which food is good or not will possibly remain a never-ending one. There seem to be lots of divisive beliefs cropping up now and again. Having said that, there are particular things which just about everyone accept are not ideal whenever you might be looking to reduce weight as well as live a healthy life.

Exactly how bad any particular food item may be thought to be is debatable considering that any food item could be eaten in moderation without it having any kind of negative effect upon the individual.

It's thus essential to take into account the overall quality as well as effects of some of the foodstuffs that you are eating just as much as you like right now while you may be reasoning that they would have zero influence upon your weight loss endeavors.

It is quite astonishing to notice many individuals eat so much highly processed foods thinking that they are truly nutritious for them.

Below are a number of common foods men and women are eating trusting that they're eating wholesome foods.

Salad Dressings

Whereas the salad by itself is known as a way of consuming a healthy and balanced food, the dressing applied can nevertheless make it totally "harmful." Plenty of the regular salad dressings contain a whole lot of sugar and used primarily vegetable oils including canola or soy oil. These kinds of toppings easily help to make the salad as harmful as the other foods the individual could be avoiding.

You could as an alternative dress your salads by using olive or vinegar oil. You could also look for a number of the far healthier salad dressings that don't have added preservatives, vegetable oils and sweeteners.

Conventional Soy

All soy contains high quantities of phytoestrogens which many experts dispute to be either wholesome or unhealthy. At the same time, most conventional soy is mostly genetically improved and therefore raises a whole lot of wellness and safety questions. Try and keep soy intake to a minimum and also opt for the organic and whole food variants.


The majority of classic yogurts tend to be filled with lots of artificial sweeteners and / or sugar. The homemade yogurt or the ones that you are able to get from fresh milk from a local ranch are often very nourishing. Make use of Greek yogurt or get a very good high-quality organic plain yogurt then include your own preferred toppings.

Whole Wheat Bread

Thinking about it, wheat isn't truly that much of a wholesome meal. So, including the "whole" to it isn't going to essentially make it any better. Many of these kinds of food items include added quantities of sugar, oils, and also other unnatural ingredients. However, you can minimize the amount of the gluten or wheat which you consume in your diet.

Diet Drinks

This is yet another hugely controversial topic seeing that a number of people claim that the synthetic sweeteners they possess are usually worse compared to sugar. Then again, there are some data that are suggesting that they do have an indirect impact on weight addition. Drinking them in moderation is okay but remember that they will be replacing several much better beverage options including coffee, tea, or even pure water. Therefore think twice.

Is hypnosis addictive? It's deeply meaningful and pleasurable, so kind of. It's generally about as addictive as amazing art. There are people who lose themselves in galleries and museums – most people simply enjoy the experience, though.

I say "generally" for a reason. It can be much more compelling than that.

I'm a self-described trance junky. The hypnotic state is sublime and I can't get enough of it. I'm the same about all the wholesome pleasures – good food, good company, good sleep. I get "withdrawals" from those too.

Anything can be addictive to the right mind. And cravings come from your unconscious mind (it's not as if you can choose to stop a craving, after all), so I'm not saying it doesn't happen.

In fact, some nefarious individuals engineer their hypnosis to be addictive. And once you start talking about that, you're talking about a completely different sort of trance. Most hypnosis isn't addictive … unless the hypnotist makes it so.

Hypnosis breaks addictions. In the hands of a loser looking for a cheap thrill, it can certainly form them.

Yeah, it turns out you need to be careful who you let hypnotise you. I hear horror stories all the time. People find random audios on the internet, listen to them, then regret it.

They can't stop listening to them.

They start questioning their reality and identity. So many of these victims freak out, thinking the audio turned them gay / straight or made them a sex slave or something. It probably didn't, but the thought of it is enough to make them miserable.

Suggestions tend to fade over time. If it's an addictive audio, though, that doesn't help so much. At the extreme end, they can ruin lives. People spend all their time and money just trying to get another hit.

It's almost as if inviting lunatics into your unconscious isn't a great idea.

What's the best cure for hypnosis addictions?

Hypnosis is.

I know, I know, it sounds like a bad joke. Hypnosis curing hypnosis addiction? It's like a hipster thinking kale cures everything, including kale overdoses.


But it's not as weird as it sounds. Remember, hypnosis is a vast and complex discipline. No one agrees on what it is because it's as complex as thought itself. It covers thousands of distant ideas, concepts and techniques.

"Physical activity" can strain a muscle. It can also repair a strained muscle. It's only a question of doing the right physical activity for the job.

So too with the mind. The right hypnosis can fix anything in there, including hypnosis addiction.

You can trust another hypnotist to clean up your mess. And, honestly, you should. You wouldn't trust your car with an amateur mechanic, so who do you entrust your mind to? A professional, that's who.

After that, you should learn self-hypnosis.

If people are toying with your mind, (and they are, whether you touch hypnosis or not,) then you need to know how to undo their damage. Nothing is as important as learning to defend yourself.

1. Strengths/ stronger; symptoms; solutions: We can either, proceed, in a proactive manner, or wait, to get sick, and then, try to cure what ails us!

2. Motivated: Smarter health comes from, proceeding, in a motivated manner, and the persistence, to maintain, a system, which addressed needs, goals, and priorities, in order to, proceed through life, with a better chance for health and happiness!

3. Attitude; attention; alternatives: Each of us, must control our mindsets! We choose, to proceed, either with a positive, can – do, attitude, or a negative, problems – focused, one! When we commit to paying keen attention, to what makes us happiest, healthiest, and most prepared, we generally enhance our personal possibilities. Never proceed with a closed – mind, but, rather, consider, options, alternatives, and alternative medicine, as part of a well – considered, strategic and action plan!

4. Relevant; reliable; research: Learn as much as possible, about all your options and alternatives. Read the relevant research, thoroughly, and ensure, there has been, time – tested examination, of any particular treatment, and/ or, approach! Discuss every option, with a trusted, health professional, to ensure, the potential approach, is a realistic, reliable one!

5, Timely: The enemy of optimizing the healthiest life, is procrastination! After doing your research, and consulting, with a professional, proceed, in a well – considered, timely manner!

6. Enduring; emphasis; excellence: Overall, healthy living, is an enduring process, instead of a sprint! Determine your personal emphasis, and always proceed with the utmost focus on personal excellence, in your decisions!

7. Responsive; responsible; reasoning: Be responsive to your needs, and take a responsible approach. Examine your reasoning, ensure it’s based on a thorough consideration, and evaluation, and proceed, accordingly!

If you commit to being, SMARTER, with your health, you have a better chance of living a healthier existence! Are you up to the task, and taking personal responsibility?

How TRAVEL Helps Your Health?

by Abdul-Qadir


From time, to time, nearly everyone, occasionally, feels, their routine, has become a rut, and need, to escape, a little, in order to reduce stress, anxiety, and, thus, enhance their personal health, and well – being. One great way, to do so, is commit, to regularly, TRAVEL, and, escape, in a positive way. It’s more about, enjoying life, to its fullest, instead of constantly, focusing, and being concerned about, one’s work schedule, and routine. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what the opportunities, and advantage, of this mind – set, and behavior, might be, in terms of making you happier, and healthier.

1. Thoughts: Begin with your personal thought processes. When one travels, and gets away, from the stresses and strains, of every – day experiences, and responsibilities, he must first, do all he can, to clear his mind, and live, in the moment. When one does this, it generally, invigorates, and vitalizes him, in a positive, refreshing way!

2. Reasoning; rationale: Adjusting your attitude, and attention, and transforming your reasoning, to making yourself, more relaxed, and comforted, your rationale, becomes your friend, instead of a potential enemy!

3. Attitude; attention: What we pay attention to, and prioritize, often, determines, whether, we will proceed, with a positive, can – do, attitude, instead of a negative, problems – oriented one! Our focus, often needs, some adjustments, and taking some time off, generally, is beneficial!

4. Views; value; values; vitality: Examine your personal views, and strive for greater vitality. Will you commit to maintaining attention to your finest values, rather than taking, some path, of least resistance? We often tend, to take ourselves, for – granted, and, it is important to value, what we are, and/ or, our personal potential. This often becomes challenging, because, we get so, tied – up, with our every – day stresses, and struggles. Occasionally, getting away, helps relieve these discomforts! Traveling should enhance our personal vitality, in a personally, fulfilling, motivating manner!

5. Enjoyment: Wouldn’t it be more beneficial to you, if you strove for personal enjoyment, instead of, merely, getting into a rut, which makes you less fulfilled?

6. Levels you: In order to handle, the obstacles and challenges, which may, create a degree of less than optimal balance, it means, focusing on doing things, which level, you, and make you feel better, and more personally fulfilled!

Commit to self – help, by taking the time to TRAVEL. Wouldn’t you want, to become, the best, you can possibly, be?
