  • Over one-third population have suppressed their thirst mechanism to the point where it is often misinterpreted as hunger.
  • The number one reason for daytime sleepiness and low energy is water loss.
  • By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost 1-3% of its total water amount, which can affect memory and the ability to concentrate.

You and Your Friends

portrait-828398_960_720

In everyday life, we meet hundreds of people. Some come with common grounds, and others arrive with an entirely different background. We do tend to choose who we stay with and who we leave. It gets harder every time we have a choice.  These decisions can make us or break us.

 

People affect us in every possible way. They can change us both negatively and positively. What is quite evident is that whoever we choose to stay with determining the rest of our life.  They can easily shape our future and mold it in whatever way possible to them. It is hard or probably impossible to read the future. We can only judge our past and present which can help us shape our future.

 

I believe our future is ten times how our present is looking like. Choosing the right future starts with the right present.

 

I often stumble across people who don’t know what they want from their lives.  They seem clueless and helpless. And all of a sudden, you witness them take an entirely different turning point in which they become more aware and conscious of what their future may bring.  When I take a closer look, I find them making new friends and connections with those who know clearly what they aspire toward.

 

Simply put, we can not reach our dreams if we stay close to those who don’t have one.  We can not reach great heights if those we know only look down their feet.  We can not be sophisticated enough if we only stay with those shallow minded. It is those who we keep their company who influence us the most.

 

It’s no magic, but the people we tend to stay with determining the way our life and future may bring to us. It’s so important that we carefully take the time to choose who we keep in our circles and who we stay away of.

LIVE TO EARN | EARN TO LIVE

Many people work hard every day to save money to cover their future expenses, yet, some prefer to use their income to live the present moment with no regard to what the future may have in store for them.  I believe both are valid views but always need to be measured and balanced. In fact, I have my own strategy in defining a balanced lifestyle, and it might help you to enjoy the present and plan for the future.

 

High life demands on families and individuals can prevent them from enjoying life and be much preoccupied about the future. Parents are always striving hard to save more money to help their kids get good education and receive medical treatment when needed. Moreover, single adults work hard every day just so they are able to provide for their future families. For just those reasons, and perhaps many others, people find it hard to enjoy life at the present moment, plan for trips abroad to spend a family vacation or simply have a nice dinner gathering.

I struggle with the same; I have been working for the past ten years so that I can provide for my future family. I know some – if not the majority – share with me the same endeavor. However, in recent years, I started to look into ways of balancing my life so that I can live the present moment, and yet be able to plan for my future. In the following, I lay out some ideas I have come across to help you change the way you look at life and generate more income streams aside from your current job so that you can make the best out of the present and plan for a better future:

 

  • Use Web Marketing to Promote Your Services

Never underestimate the power of the internet and the social media platforms. Use web marketing to sell any product or service by targeting potential customers. Make sure your product or service has something that distinguishes it from what is available in the market, then start taking the right steps towards branding it online and addressing the right audience.

 

  • Enter the Stock Market

The stock market is another hub for those seeking to make money, but have both patience and wit to enjoy good returns on their investment on the long run. Be careful, examine the market thoroughly and start investing small amounts of money before taking big moves. Remember! The stock market may require some financial background so you are able to assess intrinsic value of companies before investing, so it is better to take your time before taking any action.

 

  • Start Your Own Website or Blog:

This has been lately one of the easy and free ways to establish online presence. Choose one of the free online platforms that allow internet users to create a website or a blog, or simply consider creating your own page on the social media. Before that, you need to think carefully about what you want to write about and what would make people interested in what you post. You will then be one step away from making money; such online presence can simply be used to have ads run on your website or page.

 

If you are looking for a good start to generate passive income, sign up for my FREE webinar at (http://www.inviteto.alkalinedoha.com/) which will pullback the curtains to a very unique opportunity which can possibly change your life.  You can also check out my website at (http://www.alkalinedoha.com/) for more details on the products and services offered.

 

In conclusion, I am only suggesting ways I find useful and thought you as well can look into. This may help you discover what you can do for yourself to generate some passive income streams. It can be a paradigm shift if taken seriously. Furthermore, with life demands, another source of income (if not many) is necessary in today’s world.

 

Get Ready to Sleep Faster!

sleepingman-568ae96b3df78ccc15406767

All we need every day is to be fresh and ready to carry on. Every one of us has a different goal that they live for achieving. Whether that to run a business, build a family, get more marks on your next test, train for the next Olympic goal, or just maybe to carry on to the next day. We all have goals to meet, and all we need is to be just ready to start the day fresh and bright.

From my humble experience, I’d typically need 7-8 hours of sleep to help me recover for the next day and below is usually what I do to reach there.

Here, I like to share with you some tips I find very useful after researching best ways to get better and faster sleeping time. Thanks to Health.com for sharing their insights in such a beautiful way.  You can also watch their one minute video right here!

First and for most, avoid afternoon CAFFEINE. Coffee or tea can mess with your sleep even if we drink them hours before sleep. I like to get my last coffee drink, if ever, right before noon time. That way I make sure to get it off my system by the time I wind down to go to bed to get some rest.

Second, take a HOT BATH. Cooling down your body temperature can dramatically help you to fall asleep so much faster. I like to do that an hour before bedtime so that I can set the mood right before I dive into sleep.

Third, bring the LIGHTS down. It is quite important to bring light down as you set the mood right before bed time. I like just to put off all electronic equipment I have in the house including but not limited to (TV, phones, WiFi system, microwave). I only turn a very dimmed light of my table lamp next to the bed just to help read a little before I get ready to sleep.

Fourth, keep the ROOM temperature cool enough. A lot of people I know including myself sleep much faster when the room temperature is cold enough. I usually keep it between 18-20 Celsius depending on the weather condition.

Fifth, wear SOCKS to bed. It improves the blood circulation in the extremities, which can help you sleep more quickly. I usually try to be fully covered because I know from experience I’d wake up if am not covered well due to getting cold, and that can affect my quiet period on a greater level.

Sixth and last, relax the right way. Make sure to try different progressions until you find your best position and stay there until you completely fall asleep.

Hope you like the content, and please leave comments on how do you get better and faster to sleep.

 

 

Pokémon Go Privacy and Security Matters!

Pokemon Go

Pokémon Go game has become so popular in the past few weeks after being launched early this month. According to Recode, technology, and media news website, Pokémon Go has an average of 9.5 million users actively using the game on the daily basis.

With that said in mind and the growing demand on the mobile app, privacy and security of the users have to be considered heavily. Here we’d like to share with you few tips on how to use the game while keeping you safe and secure with the least minimal impact.

 

Make sure that you’re downloading the app from a trusted source and not a third party to ensure your safety and security i.e. Google Play

With the high demand on the application many third party sources have made the application downloadable from their sites. This could introduce malware and viruses without the users’ knowledge.

 

Protect your privacy while playing the Pokémon Go

As the application requires access to your GPS location along with your data connection, privacy can be easily invaded.  However, below are few things you could adjust while playing to minimize the risk.

  • Don’t use your personal Gmail account to log in. This links your personal information on the account including your location and the game activity. Instead, you can use a fake account for that matter.
  • Make sure your application is always updated with all the security patches on a regular basis.

 

Beware of the Pokémon Go-themed Scams

Beware of malicious apps on Google Play store. Researchers from popular firm ESET have spotted at least three fake Pokémon Go apps.  One of which titled “Pokémon Go Ultimate” has posed the biggest threat to Android users according to the research.

Beware of Pokécoins phishing scams. Several sites have been available requesting personal information from individuals in return for gaining Pokécoins and other powerups.

 

Don’t play the game while biking, driving or even walking

Some accidents have been recently reported and all over the Internet due to people getting distracted with the game while driving.

Getting distracted by the game while driving, biking or even walking could put others’ lives in danger.

Note that if you are drawn to an area that is dangerous or restricted, you can report it to the game’s developer who will consider removing it from the game.

 

Keep others privacy into consideration

Don’t get carried away with your enthusiasm to Pokémon hunt. Such behavior may lead to several consequences such as privacy invasion i.e. consider your time and place while playing the game.

 

Review access permission while using the app

The application asks for permission to access your location data, photo library, media files on the device, contacts, and camera. Location data is the only thing you need to allow to play this game. This option will let you play without augmented reality. So if you want to have augmented reality, then you will need to allow the camera as well.

“Texting While Driving” Matters!

shutterstock_144889726

In today’s world, while people are constantly glued to their mobile devices, it ‘s hard to believe they communicate like the old days. In the world of technology and social media, people don’t often have face-to-face conversations with each other anymore. They use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, or any other medium that allows them to communicate behind the screen.

Communicating through means of technology doesn’t necessarily affect us negatively, it’s the way we use it.  Technology brings a lot of benefits to the users along with some unknown side effects that we perhaps need to be aware of.

In this blog, I’d like to touch base on how technology can lead someone to end his/ her life or the life of others through the “wrong” use of technology. Improper use can take place through different means such as bullying, addiction, gaming, and many more. But I’d like to shed the light in this blog on “mobile addition”.

“Mobile addiction is the constant use of mobiles despite the adverse effect it can have on a person or others around them.”

One of the very harmful effects mobile addiction can have on a person is “texting while driving”.   Texting while driving is the act of always looking out and replying to messages you receive on your phone while you’re on the road and behind the wheels.  People with this behaviour can lead to many incidents, out of which are the following;

  • getting distracted from driving
  • moving from one lane to another without noticing
  • suddenly finding yourself too close to break

Many of these events can cause harm to you and the life of others.  It only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen; like a person crossing the road,  another driver who happen to be in the next lane,  a huge truck that happened to be parking on the right way, and many more events.

We often need to remember that our lives are more important than the text messages we are replying to or even those we’re communicating with.  What also matters are the people behind us who love us the most in their lives. Our families, friends, and relatives.

Technology can always be an advantage, but we need to remind regularly ourselves of how we should use it to keep it on our side and not against us.

TED vs. Toastmasters

In TED, speakers talk about what they have written in books and magazines or about their work or contributions to the whole society. That is evident in the following two videos.

What explains the rise of humans? – By Yuval Noah Harari

Design and Destiny – By Philippe Starck

That is right, however, and especially in these two talks what is very evident is that no matter what you come from or what you have to offer, we all do think and believe it’s an added value to come and listen. And this is one thing TED and Toastmasters have in common.

When I think about the differences and similarities of both, I think of both as very similar in nature. Both platforms are for people to think and express their thoughts and ideas freely. You don’t get caught or jailed when you express unusual opinions or views.

From the many talks I’ve watched and listened to, I believe one thing is very uncommon, though. People use TED to share life accomplishments and anticipations of the future while, in Toastmasters, we share life experiences as we face it ( day-to-day ). In Toastmasters, we live the success experience with our audience step by step all the way while, in TED, we come to showcase our light.

Similarly, TED and Toastmasters offer a platform to be persuasive, courageous, funny, ingenious, inspiring, and beautiful.

On the contrary, you never get a proper evaluation in TED, rather you may get harsh criticism as the whole world is evaluating you and maybe that’s one thing that keeps putting them apart.

In conclusion, I think TED and Toastmasters are both there to help the billions bring out their thoughts, ideas, and emotions. They help them get heard.

Your thoughts, please.

Facebook | 5 Steps to Recover and Secure a Compromised Account!

Facebook Recovering Account

The dependency on Facebook and its data has become a vital part of our day to day life.  Most of the people in this generation can not easily live without Facebook ( myself included ).  It has played and is still playing a quite significant role in our businesses and personal lives.

We heavily use Facebook for many reasons, whether we want to talk to family members. Reach out to friends abroad.  Or even run businesses from home.

Facebook has made it quite easy for most of us to communicate with friends and family. Run businesses and advertise for companies. This connection has significantly affected how hackers see Facebook as it has become a significant source of information for millions around the world.

Millions of people provide personal data on their profile. This exposure has affected our security in many different ways and hackers are just looking out to see what we offer ( as a clue ) to hack in.  And we can never avoid hacking and security can never be 100% guaranteed, but we can take the following steps to help keep our account safe and secure on Facebook.

In some cases, however, accounts can be hacked, and a person may find out one day that they can no longer access their profile.  Many reasons could be part of why this can happen, and the consequences can be catastrophic.  They may find people sending out emails, posting pictures, sharing videos, and many other things on their behalf and without their knowledge.  And in some cases, it can be very dangerous and risky to a person’s life and business.

If you found that one day you can no longer access your account, don’t panic and follow the steps below to regain control back to your account.

Step 1:  go to https://www.facebook.com/hacked  and click on “My Account is Compromised”

Step 2: type in your email address, phone number, username or your full name and Facebook will try and match your information with its database to find the associated account.

Step 3: if your account has been hacked most probably the email has been already changed, and you don’t want to notify the hacker that you’re trying to regain control of your account, so click on “No longer have access to these?”

Step 4: now you’re almost there. Write your new email address or phone number which Facebook will use to let you regain control back to your account.

Step 5: Follow the instructions and you shall regain control back within 24 hours.

I hope to see your comments below. Also, you can let me know if you’d like me to write on a particular subject that may have more interest to you and your business.

Stay Safe. Keep Connected.

Sharing Life Learnings

shutterstock_110879309

Sharing and learning to share are great acts I think all should practice…

 

In childhood, we learn the act of sharing but we never really understand its benefit until we grow older and practice it further.  We start to realize the beauty of it. We learn along the way moments of compromise and compassion for one another.  Moments of kindness and gratefulness. This only happens when we start truly practicing LIFE.

 

Learning about life

In positive attitude &

Fairness

Everyday

 

Life has a lot to offer, and people come with different backgrounds and cultures.  This is how everyone has something unique to offer and share with the great public.  When we start sharing, we teach others different views on life. We help them discover areas of improvement. We let them decide on their path. This helps everyone appreciate every feedback and comment they get along their life-journey.

 

When we model good sharing in life, we give others a great example to follow.

Sharing has absolutely no restriction on age, color, gender, religion, or where you come from.  It has all to do with your background, experiences, knowledge in life, and your values and principles you stand by.  Hence, we all can.

In my last sharing experience, I had the pleasure of offering some advice to some stranger I met in a conference.  It was about succeeding in Toastmasters and life in general.  I had shared with her my personal view based on my experiences and knowledge.   I had summarized it in what I call the KEY to succeeding.

 

Keep independent in every step along your journey and don’t wait for someone to do it for you

Educate yourself on your values and principles and stick to them no matter what happens

You’re the most important person in your life so make sure to fight for what you want

 

Sharing is caring so start the first step and try to make a difference in someone else’s life.  Your experiences and knowledge will only value the moment you start sharing it with others. When we model good sharing in life, we give others a great example to follow.

My Online Reputation is Worth Checking Out

shutterstock_197079635The Internet offers a wide range of information some of which related to people you know, don’t know, relatives, friends, and some are related to you in particular.   This information can be news, events, gatherings, photos, or even personal posts.   It can have great positive impact on you and your beloved ones, but it can also have a great negative impact on your reputation.

In these days, with this great development in science and technology and particularly the Internet, it can take a few clicks to get to know more about an individual.  It can help build a picture of what he or she likes.  Help understand their habits, know their beloved ones or the places they like going to.   As though this could be very helpful to get to know someone easily and fast, it can also prevent an individual from being able to control and protect what people can do with their information online.  They can share it with strangers and people they didn’t want to share this with at the first place.  This can have a dramatic impact on someone’s present and future in some cases.

Though this may seem hard to control with the Internet being open wide for everyone to check at any given time,  yet it can be manageable in a way that put you up in a very good condition to help you build good healthy reputation online.  With a little research, I’ve discovered the following options to start off with in order to get your reputation and the reputation of those who you care about good and healthy on this medium called the “virtual world”.

Search Yourself

Search your name on Google and create “Google alert” on your name to keep track of any content related.  You can have it mailed back to you “automatically”.  This can be done “as it happens”, “once a day”, or even “once a week”.  Choose whatever you like that keeps you aware and doesn’t necessarily overwhelm your inbox with junk you don’t need as some information may not be related at all to you.

N.B.  this is how you can create and manage Google alerts. Follow this link at Salty Dog Interactive.

Get your Domain Name

This is something you may want to consider as buying a domain name that matches your identity online helps keep your profile branding both healthy and reachable as well.  You can have it from places like GoDaddy, JustHost, HostGator, and many more..  This can help you build and keep alive information that you precisely want the public to see.

Keep it All in One

Make sure all your content link back to one place so when people visit your profile on platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, or any other site they can be directed to your website “myname.com”.  This helps you control and manage what people see and learn about you.

Keep it Private If it’s Private

You really don’t want to share embarrassing photos, posts, or videos even if at some point they may bring laughter.  While moments in life are good to share with friends and family, it may also be as well good to consider thinking of how you’re going to share them before they go viral.
