NEW BEGINNING

Towards the end of last year, I seriously started nursing the thoughts of going natural. I didn't just wake up and decide to join the bandwagon, no, over the years I've had a love hate relationship with relaxers, I changed  brands in the bid to get the best but no matter what brand I used, I suffered from terrible headache from my relaxed date till 2 weeks post relaxer.
During my service year, I relaxed only once and though my hair is thick, it is quite soft so I didn't have issues managing my "due" hair. It was then I thought to chop off the hair but as usual, I had the nay sayers discouraging me.


The truth though is I'm not easy to discourage especially if I have my mind set on doing something, I just bid my time... So after halting between two opinions, I woke up this morning and did the BC myself, and no, I didn't feel any emotion chopping my hair off.
So here is me cheering to the new journey I'm about to embark on.. I'll try to share my regimen (I only have edge control now) and pictures too. I managed to take some shots with my front camera in a not so bright room.

HOW TO RELIEVE STRESS

Una doh oh, how have we been?? I've been fine but stressed so I figured I should do a blog post on how to manage stress because truly it's not easy to be an adult.
Image source
Virtually every day, we come across things that put pressure on us. It could be family life ( wake up by 4am, prepare breakfast, clean the house and still get to work by 7am. Shout out to all the mothers in the house and shout out to me, they never told me being a grown up isn't fun), the office wahala, relationship, you name it, the concept of stress is familiar but I have good news for you! Stress can be managed. As usual I visited my good friend google and came up with the following tips. Enjoy

1. All office work ends in the office. Don’t take office work home.  The time meant for family shouldn’t be an extension of office hour (guilty).
2. Exercise: exercise is one of the most effective stress relievers. Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly are in good shape and don’t have as many problems with stress that is because exercise releases endorphins, chemicals that promote good moods and positive thinking. Exercise also provides a good physical outlet for releasing the energy that stress builds up inside you.
3. Massage: massages can also significantly reduce stress by releasing tension in your muscles. Not only can a massage help with stress, it can help boost your immune system which may have been weakened by stress.
4. You don’t even have to go to the big massage parlours to get a massage, you can massage your hands, feet, face, arms, legs and shoulders yourself or get bobo to do it for you
5. Meditation: it is a useful method to relieve stress regardless of your belief. You can use your imaginations as a place of escape, think of a place where you felt relaxed, try to imagine the place in the greatest detail possible, etc
6. Avoid your stressors: stay away from what is stressing you. Infact this is the first step to relieving your stress. End that toxic relationship today and save you some stress, ignore that annoying colleague at work and your life will be better.
7. Reframe your problems: if it is an issue bugging you that is stressing you, you can change your perspective of it. Instead of focusing on the negatives and the problems, you can concentrate on the positives. Do your best to see things in a positive light
8. Be better organized: most times, the chief cause of stress arises from feeling overwhelmed. Use a planner to keep track of your “to do list”. You can buy sticky notes and write things to do in an organized manner stick them on the fridge, on the dressing table, above the wall on your desk and follow the schedule strictly. This is me because I forget a lot so I learnt to make sticky notes my friend.
9. Learn to say no: you cannot do everything you are asked to do, so why keep pretending that you can? Be assertive and learn to say no politely but firmly and always when you know there isn’t a chance at all that you’ll get the thing done.
10. Learn how to delegate: learn to let go by giving more credence to the abilities of others. Giving up tasks may seem stressful in theory, but will free up more personal time. Find reliable people In your life that you can trust with tasks that you are too stressed or anxious to manage
11. Listen to some music: music has shown to have a very strong effect on mood and mental state. Cal yourself down by listening to your favourite soothing music
12. Try out a new activity: learning a new activity forces your mind off your stressors, making it easier for you to relax

LOVE COMPLETES EACH OTHER

DAY 32

LOVE MEETS SEXUAL NEEDS

THE DARE
Initiate sex with your spouse today. Do it in a way that honours what your spouse needs from you.  Ask God to make this enjoyable for both of you.

There is this misconception that sex is strictly for procreation... I don't know where that originated from but for married couples, sex is a way of showing love because each time you have sex with your spouse, you deposit a part of you in them.
I once came across a video where a pastor said only missionary with the man on top is acceptable, that is very wrong because even the Bible said we should drink water from our own cistern,it also talked about eating pleasant fruits from your garden. Garden here is your spouse.
Men, be patient with her if she's a green horn, women, tell him where you liked to be touched, husband and wife, be willing to try new things and always aim to satisfy each other. There is nothing to be ashamed of in marriage, it is meant to be consummated!
One more area I'll touch is people that have time table for sex. Really?? Why must it be only at night or once a month?? This is why most people cheat but some people will open their mouth and be asking if sex is food. Oh well, if you must know, in marriage, sex is food!
One more thing, this is for the ladies especially, never use sex as a form of punishment by withholding it, never please. Instead look for ways of aiming to please instead of sending your husband outside.

Day 31

LOVE AND MARRIAGE


THE DARE
If there is an issue about the biblical command to leave your parents, confess it to your spouse and resolve to make it right . Follow this with a commitment to your spouse and to God to make your marriage your priority over any other human relationship.

You see ehn, I don't understand it when a supposedly married man will still be living with his parents, really?? The Bible clearly states that a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife but how many couples are really cleaving today??
How often do you invite your relatives to come and mess up your spouse?? Mummy's boy, daddy's girl, when will you cut off that soul tie?? I'm not saying you shouldn't be close to your family but in marriage, your spouse should be top priority! 

2016!

Wow, so we made it finally?? I'm so sorry I'm just posting, I'm still in Nigeria oh, I've not changed time zone  yet but I've been very busy all day. Right now I'm dead tired but I said I'll muster all the energy I  have to post.
Welcome to 2016, the year of unlimited possibilities, forget about the unfinished projects or bad times you had in 2015, today is the first day of the rest of your life, I pray we shall climb from height to height.
So I was supposed to do this yesterday but I forgot, kindly mail me your digits (amakahundeyin@gmail.com), I need to call every one of you to thank you for coming through in 2015.
Happy new year guys!
