Happy new month people( I hope that’s not late?), I have missed writing to you 😚

I made a video recently, I decided to upload it last week(on my blog) about checking your blood pressure even as a young adult, in case you have not seen it, kindly check it here πŸ™

OK! A lot of people have asked me if there is/are a way(s) to stay healthy, I have always said, well given a normal circumstance void of any family/hereditary disease one can be at a place of wellness.

Although, according to W.H.O (World Health Organization), health is defined as State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

It is not just the absence of an actual disease or infirmity but a place of balance

In a nutshell, one can be at a place of balance by making some lifestyle changes, such as;

  • Eat a healthy diet: images (13).jpegI heard someone said there is nothing like a balanced diet since we can’t measure the nutrients and only adequate diet is what we can have. Well, a healthy diet should include vegetables, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, essential minerals, and fruits. Not skipping breakfast (if you must skip any meal.

  • Stay hydrated:Drink Enough Water By now you should know that water is life and we need it to run, as a matter of fact, you can decide to skip meals for days and run with water only. When you are starting your day, you are supposed to open your bowel with water first.
  • Be physically active:images (14).jpeg the reason for exercise cannot be overemphasized really, do exercise especially in the morning, and you can read more here πŸƒπŸ’ͺ
  • Avoid/limit the use of alcohol:images (15).jpeg well, if you can, please try to avoid the use of alcohol but if you can’t just take it slow. Excess and prolonged use of alcohol is one of the causes of liver cirrhosis(a chronic liver disease), read more about it here πŸ‘‰
  • Avoid the use of any form of tobacco: smokers are liable to die young an inscription that is boldly written on tobacco packs yet there are plenty of people getting high on it. Your lungs, your heart and your kidneys are at high risk with tobacco use. As a matter of fact, tobacco use accounts for some cancers e.g cancer of the lungs, esophagus, mouth, liver, bladder, stomach pancreas etc take it easy on tobacco
  • Get Vaccinated:download (2)-1.jpeg vaccines help in the prevention of infectious diseases hence the need tonne vaccinated. Most vaccination takes place during early childhood but there are ones one can take even as an adult, you can contact me to find out πŸ€—
  • Practice good hygiene:images (12).jpeg the importance of good personal/environmental hygiene can’t be overemphasized… Check here to see the benefits of good hygiene, especially good hand washing!
  • Good stress management; stressYou know when you are stressed, you need to also know what can help you relieve your stress ( mine is listening to music, gist with loved ones, food and 8 hours long sleep 😴😴 ) read more here.
  • Practice safe sex:images (16).jpeg if you are single and you can’t abstain, having just one faithful partner and using condoms are ways to go about it. If you are married, staying faithful is the best you can do for yourself and your partner. Sexually transmitted diseases are also ways to jeopardize one’s good health.
  • Go for a regular checkup: images (17).jpegA lot of people especially young adult feels the only people that need to go for checkup are the older ones, married or those with obvious health issues. As minor as checking Blood pressure and blood sugar regularly is, people still take it with levity hands.

If you think it is hard to maintain good health, try and ask people trying to manage a chronic disease such as high blood pressure…

Peace ✌

I am The Sent Nurse,My real name is Adenike Oladmeji. I refer to myself as β€œthe sent nurse” because I strongly believe I have an assignment not just as a regular nurse but to care for people in their lowest state beyond the physical needs. Also most of my patients fondly call me "the sent nurse"because of the way I have cared for them. The peculiarity of my profession for me is that it has moved beyond being just a nurse that takes care of the body, but one that takes care of the soul/mind and spirit of a human being. I care for the threefold man – the body, the soul/mind and the spirit. I am a very proud and enthusiastic registered nurse, and I currently practice with Roding Healthcare in Lagos, Nigeria. Added to my skill and expertise in taking care of your soul / mind, I am also a certified emotional intelligence, health/wellness and life coach. To further carry my message and passion for both my calling/profession and the three-fold man, I own a blog (www.thesentnurse.com) that focuses on faith and health related topics and discussions. I also speak at events, conferences and seminars, both Nationwide and Internationally. As an entrepreneur, I manage the operations of Ewaade beauty store (@ewaadebeautystore) , a beauty store that operates majorly via social media, providing quality cosmetics and beauty products to every female of all levels. At Ewaade beauty store, enhancing your true beauty is our goal because we believe there is no flaw in you (you are altogether beautiful). We provide you a balance of the best quality and cheapest prices.
