New vitamin alert: Vitamin H




If you were undergoing mental stress and your doctor prescribed 'Vitamin H' as a drug, would you think he was crazy?

Vitamin H is the new vitamin on the block.


Helping means making it easier or possible for someone to do something by offering them one's services or resources.

This is the place of Altruism. Its not some mumbo-jumbo from the oxford dictionary. It is when we put other people’s needs before our own.

Some folks will put up arguments like if I had more, I will give more. You can actually give through:

  • Volunteering
  • Mentoring
  • Doing something for a good cause
  • Random acts of kindness


There is a constant and unending war of either crashing down or rising up. We are strong people however there are people who are not so strong, this is how they are wired but have refused to deactivate their default setting.

Everbody needs somebody. From the guy behind the counter at the bank, to the poor girl hawking grocery on the street, to the hundred billion dollar-worth boss in the boardroom, to the lady running that  'not-so' popular cafeteria down to that toddler being dragged to school.

We all need a support system no matter how strong you are. Trust issues abound but we can't afford to be an island.

All the eggs in a crate can't be all rotten and all the oranges on a tree can't be all sour.

Helping people makes the world a happier place – it’s contagious!

 The more you do for others, the more you do for yourself, it reduces stress, it helps yourself and recipient of your help feel good and it brings a sense of belonging and reduces isolation.

Personally, offering help increases your serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin hormonal levels too. Theses are your happiness, pleasure and love triggering hormones respectively.

So, if you need that blast of goodness.

You know just what to do.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

NEXT BIG THING: CREATING A NEW WORLD THROUGH MY LENS - KINGSLEY AGORUA

Jim Rohn had his opinion that "If you don't like where you, change it. You are not a tree." Kingsley Agorua had looked around where he found himself and decided to change it to suit his taste through his lens.

My earliest contact with Kingsley should have been in 2012 when I was a student at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. I spotted him at an event on campus where he was taking photographs.

Little did I know that I would bump into him again at my faculty - The School of Health as a student. I was curious as to what a photographer was doing in my faculty during lecture period. Time will reveal that he was a student too who was madly in love with his camera. This was all before the advent of traditional or nearly compulsory bridal showers, baby showers and pre-wedding shoots in the Nigerian Creative Industry.


Kingsley Agorua is a cinematographer with years of experience from Oguta in Imo state. He studied Dental Technology at the Federal University of Techno…

Valentine for all times

"He just had to go", I yelled inside of me. Dele was too bossy and proud,the rest of the staff looked up to me to ensure he was fired. All I had to do was pull the manager into my seductive web and by morning, Dele would get his termination letter. Anyone who stood in my way always got burnt, I loved to revenge passionately and Dele was certainly not a sacred cow.

The subsequent monday was my birthday, I was hoping there would be a suprise cake or party for me but no soul even wished me a happy birthday. Work went on as every other normal day.
I bent to open my drawer then I saw a parcel with a note attached to it:

I boss you because I want you to be the boss
I have admired you since the day I knew you
Work has to get better but don't ever try to change you.
Lots of love
Dele.

I wept like a baby, that was the only gift I got that day.
Dele was not sacked and they are now proud parents of three kids.

Don't you just love to love? #winks.
Love everyone, everyday!
Happy…
