THE HEALTH HUB-- COLD REMEDIES




COLD REMEDIES






Happy New Year my wonderful readers!
Hope you enjoyed the holidays and are all in good health. This time of year comes with its own problems, because of the Harmattan, so we need to be mindful. One of such issues is the stubborn “common cold” which can prevent you from springing back from the holiday and back to work/school.

Here are a few remedies you can use in order to get back on your feet in no time. 


Stay hydrated. Water,orange juice, or warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration. Warm Ginger water also does the trick.


Avoid alcohol, coffee and caffeinated sodas,They make the dehydration worse.



Soothe your sore throat with a saltwater gargle. Put 1/2 a teaspoon of  salt in a glass of warm water and Gargle. It can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. Lozenges are also very effective for a sore throat.



Get rid of the stuffiness in your nose with Over-the-counter nasal drops and sprays which help relieve the nasal congestion.



Relieve any pain with paracetamol or ibuprofen or variants like Panadol or Tylenol etc.


Sip warm liquids. Taking in warm liquids, such as light soup, tea, or warmed juice, is soothing and can ease congestion by increasing mucus flow


Over-the-counter cold and cough medications can be resorted to if all else fails. Nasal decongestants, antihistamines and pain relievers offer some symptom relief. However, they won’t prevent the cold or shorten its duration, and most have some side effects.They simply ease the discomfort.



There’s no excuse to let a stubborn cold hold you back this NewYear. Share with others as well!

VIBES WITH NKS-- BEWARE OF HARMING YOUR 'PERSONAL BRAND' ON SOCIAL MEDIA




BEWARE OF HARMING YOUR 'PERSONAL BRAND' ON SOCIAL MEDIA 






Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that on August 27th, “1 in 7 people on earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family” -- which means about 1 billion people in a single day.
It's a startling statistic and it means human connectivity is evolving at an exponential rate. It also means that when we are online someone, somewhere is watching what we’re doing, what were saying and what we’re posting.




Because of the higher level of visibility social media brings to our lives, it’s important to apply the golden rules of etiquette, manners and respect to your online life just as you do in real life, helping ensure you build and maintain your personal and professional brand now and into the future.
TMI – too much information?: Social media is the perfect vehicle for the narcissist in all of us, with many users believing that we are the stars of our own little movie.


But that doesn’t mean we are and not everyone is interested in the minutiae of our daily lives. Whether lamenting about missing out on the perfect parking space at the grocery store or sharing intimate secrets of a broken relationship, the simple fact of the matter is, no one really cares to read the constant details of your daily life.

So do yourself a favor and edit your postings before updating by asking yourself, “Is this an important detail that my friends and family (and their friends and family) really need to know or is it TMI?”




Negativity: No one likes a 'Debbie Downer' and online negativity can adversely influence both your personal and professional relationships.
On personal social networks like Facebook and Twitter, posting negative comments online can be viewed as passive aggressive or simply mean-spirited.



On professional platforms like LinkedIn, any postings that portray you as anything less than calm, cool and collected should never see the light of day.
Further, more and more companies routinely search personal and professional social sites as part of background checks for prospective employees (and to check up on current ones). You don’t want any negative posting that could brand you as uncooperative, uncollaborative or simply uncool.


Picture Imperfect: If a picture is worth a thousand words, an unflattering upload could paint you into a corner. Whether you’re chugging a bottle of champagne at your sister’s wedding or showing a bit too much skin in a party dress, an inappropriate photo can come back to haunt you.

So before you hit upload in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat, think hard about what a particular photo can do to enhance or detract from your image.

We live in a culturally diverse world and social media puts us into contact with a host of people who may not share our same views on religion, social issues, politics or intellectual interests.

Variety is truly the spice of life, but not everyone has the same tastes. So even if you have a strong opinion about a particular issue or belief, you may want to consider saving your thoughts for the appropriate audience in real time to ensure they do not come across online as discriminatory or inflammatory, particularly in regards to race, gender, religion, sexuality and other hot button issues.


By showing cross-cultural respect and tempering your comments, you can leave an impression that extends way beyond an ill-conceived, reactive rant.

LIFESTYLE WITH BERNYS-- RESOLUTIONS AND MAKING THEM WORK





CRUMBLING RESOLUTIONS?



RESOLUTIONS AND MAKING THEM WORK






Some resolutions have probably begun to crumble already. By the 8th day of the year, “okay maybe this isn’t my year after all, I’ll begin well next year”, someone says already.
January, which begins every year is known for the rush and the ‘excitement to do’ it comes with. January lights up the ‘to do’ spirit. Nothing seems impossible in January especially during the first week.However, this fire seems to get extinguished with time and people just get back to their old way of life.

There’s nothing magical about a calendar flip. A new year changes nothing unless you do. Resolutions have become known for inability to stick till the end. These 4 points should help them stick.




·         BE SPECIFIC

Vague goals are much more likely to fail. Set a well-defined goal and layout plans to achieve it. Your goal should include methods for achieving them. You should have specific actions that will be carried out in the process of reaching the larger goal.



·         FIND SUPPORT

You could share your goals a loved one so they can remind you about them, check in on you every now and then and cheer you on or collaborate with a friend with a common goal so you can share tips and support one another in your quest to reach the goal. Talking to others about some goals makes them more likely to be accomplished.





·         DON’T QUIT OVER A SLIP

What defines us isn’t how we fall but how we get back up. Made a mistake of some sort already, just dust it off and get back to your resolution. Don’t let one shortfall take a toll on an entire journey ahead. Get back to your resolution right away. Begin again if you slip up.




·         FOCUS
Comparison doesn’t only steal joy but focus as well. Focus less on what others are doing and more on your own goals and making each day better than the previous.
 Just in case you missed the opportunity to begin on the first day of 2018, miss a Monday or a first day of any of the months ahead, you need not wait to begin. Every day you wait is another day you won’t get back. Keep going, remember why you started.
Plan and aim for the goal. Stay motivated. You can do it.  Do not let comfort zones talk you out of where you’re headed.

SOMETHING POSITIVE FROM MUSIGA -- launches ‘Play More GH’ campaign



The Musicians Union of Ghana has launched the Play More Gh campaign at the MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball held on Friday December 22, 2017 at the Accra International Conference Centre. The launch was performed by the President of the Union, Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour. The Presidential Grand Ball was attended by President Akufo-Addo who extolled the prowess of Ghanaian musicians.
The Play More Gh campaign is an advocacy campaign by the Union to encourage more Ghanaian content on radio and television. The campaign involves the use of direct engagements with presenters and media organizations, social media activations and other platforms.
The campaign comes in the wake of calls for more Ghanaian content on our airwaves. It is to support steps being taken by the Ministry of Communications to pass an appropriate Broadcasting Bill that seeks to ensure over 70% of programming on our airwaves is Ghanaian content.
Another project of the Union that was launched at the Grand Ball was the Future Project or Youth Incubation Programme. This involves a select number of over 150 budding musicians from around the country who receive coaching and mentoring in addition to other support from the Union and selected leading artistes who engage with the youth.
The MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball is annual fundraising gala event to support specific projects being undertaken by the Union. This year, the Ball is to support the establishment of an Endowment Fund for the Ageing Musicians Welfare Fund (AMWeF) and the MUSIGA Academy which is a collaboration between the Union and the National Film and Television Institute.
A number of musical equipment and artifacts belonging to leading musicians like Agya Koo Nimo, Paapa Yankson and Ewurama Badu were auditioned at the gala event.
In attendance were the Chief of Staff, Madam Frema Opare; Minister of Information, Dr. Mustapha Hamid; former First, Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings and business magnate, Dr. Kofi Amoah.
