Hello T-Fans, Stress is a form of negative energy exerted on the mind. Stress is also the feeling of being overwhelmed or unable to cope with Physical, mental or emotional pressure. Stress is our body's response to pressure and this pressure can arise from many different situations new, unexpected or entirely overwhelming for our capacity or is a threat to our sense of self. People respond and deal with stress differently. However, our individual ability to respond to stress depends on our genetic make makeup, early life events and experiences, personality, social and economic circumstances. Whenever we undergo stress, some hormones are produced which triggers either a fight or flight response and activate our immune system The hormones usually goes back to normal once the stressor(what causes the stress is removed). As stated earlier, stress can come from different things like work, relationships, academic, even health. Some signs of stress include: when under stress, some signs can be felt and they includes, anxiousness, fear, anger or aggression, sadness, irritability, frustration, depression, headaches, aches & pains, heart palpitations, withdrawal symptoms, insomnia, sexual problems, substance abuses as comfort.

USING YOUR VAR; SHOULD RONALDO HAVE BEEN SHOWN A RED CARD IN LIVERPOOL'S 5 - 0 LOSS?

Joshuaboy | 2021-11-112174

Football
Hello T-fans, Today, let's flashback to a perfect Sunday evening of 24th October, 2021. Manchester United was humiliated on its home turf by rival Liverpool in Matchday 9 of the Premier League. It was a flawless victory for Liverpool as the Reds defeated Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford. Mohamed Salah ended the game with a hat-trick as Naby Keita and Diogo Jota were also on the score sheet. As Liverpool destroyed Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team lost their discipline. Just before halftime with the scoreline at 3-0, Ronaldo was involved in a play that probably should have seen him sent off. Paul Pogba who had only been on the pitch for 15 minutes was sent off for a poor challenge on Keita. However, the talking point of the game was in the additional minutes of the first-half which resulted in a brawl between Manchester United and Liverpool's players. Cristiano Ronaldo was released on goal following a wonderful pass from Greenwood but his effort was kept out by Allison as Liverpool's midfielder, Curtis Jones went ahead of the five-time Balloon d'Or winner to prevent the ball from going out of play. While guiding the ball, Cristiano Ronaldo attempted to nick the ball away from him but it wasn't successful as Curtis Jones went to the ground. While Jones was on the ground, the referee's whistle sounded indicating a foul by Ronaldo. But simultaneously to the whistle, Ronaldo went in for a violent kick while the ball was tucked into Jones's midsection. Ronaldo made contact with the ball, but the impact was also felt by a helpless and defenseless Jones. The incident led to a melee with Jones' teammates clearly infuriated by the incident. Referee Anthony Taylor from Wythenshawe in Greater Manchester might have sent the 36-year-old off for violent conduct but instead chose only to show him the yellow card and no further action was taken after VAR review for Ronaldo's act of petulance. Should Ronaldo Have Seen Red? This was the action of a player clearly annoyed with his team's performance and letting his frustration manifest in the wrong way. There is no doubt that he knew what he was doing and used his experience to push the letter of the law as far as he possibly could. It was obvious that this incident had malicious intent and as a result in my opinion the player should have been given a red card. The reaction of the Liverpool players showed what they felt about the incident as they all ran over to remonstrate with Ronaldo. Instead of sticking blindly to the rules, the officials need to show courage to punish players clearly over stepping the mark and using their knowhow to cause harm to opponents. Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo was 'lucky' not to be sent off in Manchester United's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. " Ronaldo was lucky the ball was there, that is what saved him from being shown a red card," he told Sky Sports. What also helped was that he stopped when he did. It wasn't the wisest thing to do, there is force behind the kicks, but the fact that the ball was there has done him a great favour. Let's hear what you have to say, use your VAR and check if Ronaldo was supposed to be sent off. Read all >>

How To Get Accurate Auto Suggestions On TECNO Android Keyboards

CARLCARE NG | 2021-11-103127

Carlcare
Hello T-Fans, For any android device you use, you should have encountered the wonders of the autosuggestion which is characteristic of the Android keyboard. While this can speed up your messaging, it can also interfere with the message you want to pass when a word like ‘thank you’ ends up as ‘thanksgiving’ on the receiver’s device. However, this does not have to always be your situation. You can set up your android keyboard to get accurate autosuggestions, and it really does not involve rocket science. Another thing that makes typing on the Android Gboard a bit frustrating is the tendency for the keyboard to auto-correct words it perceives to be misspelled. The Android keyboard operates with its dictionary and the language you have preselected so you need to modify the auto-correct and other settings to choose the type of words and emojis you get to see so that you can get accurate auto suggestions. Most android phone users just go ahead to backspace the autocorrected word in order to get their desired message correctly, while others don’t even realize until the message has been sent and then they have to undo or send an apology. No need to go through all that troubles if you can get accurate auto-suggestions. HOW TO GET ACCURATE AUTO-SUGGESTIONS. ✓ Open any app that you type with, like your WhatsApp or Gmail. ✓ Tap where you can enter text but do not type in any character. ✓ At the top of the keyboard, you will see some icons. If there is no icon at the top of your keyboard then there should be an arrow pointing rightwards. Tap on it to reveal the other icons. ✓ Tap on the Settings icon (usually a round icon with rough edges). ✓ Navigate to Text correction and tap on it. It will give you a dropdown list of several options which generally inform your typing experience on your android phone. Depending on your smartphone type, the steps to get to Text correction might be different. ✓ Open your device's Settings > Scroll down to the bottom and select System ✓ Tap on Languages & input > tap on Virtual Keyboards > Select Gboard (or whichever is your active keyboard) ✓ This will take you to the keyboard's settings > Tap on Text correction. Once you have gotten to Text correction; ✓ Navigate down to Show emoji suggestions and turn it on. When this feature is on, your keyboard will suggest a matching emoji whenever you type a word; like suggesting a happy emoji when you type the word ‘happy. ✓ Navigate to Show sticker suggestions and turn it on. This feature also suggests matching stickers. ✓ To turn on/ off predictive text on Android, navigate to Next-word suggestions. You can turn it on depending on your preference. This feature helps to suggest the next likely words when you type in a word. It is quite helpful and does not get in the way as you can easily go ahead to type your preferred word if it is not among the options. (for instance, when you type ‘how’, your keyboard could suggest ‘are’ or ‘do’ or other words that usually follow ‘how’ in your previous messages. ✓ Navigate down to Auto-correction. Turn it off if you want the keyboard to stop correcting words perceived to be wrong. ✓ Navigate to Block offensive words and ensure that it is turned on. This feature does not restrict what you choose to type, but it prevents the keyboard from suggesting offensive words, foul or vulgar language. One of the ways to get accurate autosuggestions on your android keyboard is to set it to give you the exact words you need, or take out some words from the suggestion list. If you have the Gboard (simply means Google Keyboard) installed in your phone then you can apply these steps. HOW TO DELETE WORDS FROM YOUR KEYBOARD AUTO-SUGGESTIONS LIST. ✓ On your Android phone or tablet, open any app that you type with, like your WhatsApp or Gmail. ✓ Tap to enter text. Type the word you want to add, at the top of the keyboard, you’ll see suggestions. ✓ If you see the word you don’t want to be suggested to you subsequently, Tap on it and hold it and drag it into the trash icon that appears on top of it. HOW TO ADD WORDS TO GET ACCURATE AUTO-SUGGESTIONS. ✓ Open any app that you type with, like your WhatsApp or Gmail. ✓ Tap to enter text. Type the word you want to add, at the top of the keyboard, you’ll see suggestions. ✓ If the word you want to add is among the suggestions, then you don’t have to do anything. ✓ If the word you want to add is not in the suggestions, then type it in full and tap on the space button. ✓ The word will immediately underline red since it is not in your dictionary. ✓ Tap the word underlined in red. ✓ Tap Add to dictionary. ✓ Next time you are typing on any of your applications, this word will now be among your lists of autosuggestions. HOW TO ADD A LANGUAGE TO YOUR KEYBOARD TO GET ACCURATE AUTO-SUGGESTIONS. If you usually type in just one language, then you have likely set up your android keyboard to that language when you bought the phone. But if you regularly use words from another language, you can add the language keyboard to your options in order to get accurate autosuggestions in that language as well. ✓ Open any app that you type with, like your WhatsApp or Gmail. ✓ Tap where you can enter text but do not type in any character. ✓ At the top of the keyboard, you will see some icons. If there is no icon at the top of your keyboard then there should be an arrow pointing rightwards. Tap on it to reveal the other icons. ✓ Tap on the Settings icon (usually a round icon with rough edges). ✓ Tap on Languages > Tap on Add Keyboard > Navigate to the desired language and tap on it to add. Ensure that you choose a keyboard that is compatible with your current keyboard arrangement (QWERTY or AZERTY). After setting this up, your phone will give you suggestions in both languages and will not underline or autocorrect words from the second language. This will generally result in a better typing experience on your Android keyboard. SOURCE Read all >>

How To Know If Someone Blocked You On Facebook

CARLCARE NG | 2021-11-081451

Carlcare
Hello T-Fans, Facebook, one of the first successful social media platforms, has more than 50% of the total population as users. If you are one of the active users on social media, there are times when you get blocked from someone on Facebook. It won’t notify you but you won’t be able to see the person’s account. However, there can be other reasons behind it, as the account user can also delete their account. In such cases, it leaves a question mark to find if they have blocked you or they just need some time off social media. In this guide, we will find how to know if someone blocked you on Facebook in some simple steps. HOW TO KNOW IF SOMEONE HAS BLOCKED YOU ON FACEBOOK. One thing is for sure, you will stop seeing their posts on your timeline. Also, if you try searching their name, you won’t be able to find the same user in the search results. So, let’s get started with some useful techniques to tell if you’ve been blocked on Facebook. How To Tell If Someone Has Blocked You On Facebook. When someone blocks you on Facebook, the signs are similar to getting unfriended by any Facebook user. Here are a few things that you might notice on How to know if someone blocked you on Facebook: ✓ You Cannot Find Them On Your Friendlist. If you are friends with the person and somehow you can’t find them on your friend’s list. It either means that they have deleted their account or blocked you. It can also be that the person has unfriended you on Facebook. To check your friend’s list, you can click on your name on the bar at the top of the Facebook page to find a blocked or unfriended profile page. ✓ You Won't Be Able To Tag Them In Posts. People on Facebook often tag their friends in different posts. It can be a picture that has them or a post you want to dedicate to them. But if you can’t find the person in the search bar, it can be a sign that your friend on Facebook has blocked you ✓ You Can't Send Invites To Them Everyone gets excited about events and if you have decided to invite some person to an event, and you can’t find their name, that is a very strong signal. There are times when people just delete their accounts, but that’s a very rare case. ✓ There Are No Posts From The User In Your Facebook Feed. It is as per the algorithm of social media platforms like Facebook, where you see the most posts from the people you interact with the most. If somehow, you have stopped seeing someone’s post, it is better to find the person who blocked you on Facebook. ✓ Not Being Able To See The Person's Profile. If you try to navigate through to the person’s profile page, and you see this error on the Facebook profile page saying, "Sorry, this content is available right now", that’s a sign that they have blocked you. HOW DO YOU TELL IF SOMEONE HAS BLOCKED YOU ON FACEBOOK MESSENGER. You can easily find if you’ve been blocked on messenger by using the mobile application. Once you send the message, check if the message gets through. If they are still on Facebook and the message can’t get through messenger, there are chances that they blocked you on Facebook Messenger. Here are the steps to find out how: ✓ Open the messenger on your smartphone and go to the search bar to find the person you want to message. ✓ Open the chat with the person and write your message in it. ✓ If the message gets through, it means they haven’t blocked you. But if you get any messages like "Message Not Sent" and "This person isn't receiving messages at this time," then this means that they have blocked you on Facebook messenger and not on Facebook. It can also mean that the person has deactivated the account or blocked you on Facebook. You can easily check it by going to the top of the screen on messenger. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BLOCKED AND UNFRIENDED? The difference is huge, but the differences have a very thin line in between. When someone unfriends you or blocks you, you can’t see them in your friend list. On the other hand, when someone unfriends you, you can see their profile with an "add friend" option. But, when they block you, you cannot access the page and it will show "Sorry, this content can’t be reached right now". That’s the major difference between how you have to look for the answer to how to know if someone blocked you on Facebook. WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE BEEN BLOCKED ON FACEBOOK. If someone has blocked you on Facebook or any other social media platform, there are plenty of reasons behind them. If you personally know the person, it is better to just find a mutual friend to talk to and seek things. Other than that, there’s no way one can get unblocked by any person on Facebook. It is better to just talk things through and have yourself unblocked from their profile. SHOULD YOU BE WORRIED ABOUT BEING BLOCKED? It totally depends on the person who has blocked you and if it feels important, that should be a situation of worry. However, it is better to get issues sorted by talking them through with that person. There’s nothing to worry about it if you think you can solve the issue. The person that has blocked you doesn’t want you to see their social media. You shouldn’t be worried about it until and unless they are very close to you. WRAPPING UP. Facebook and other social media websites have added the option to block different accounts. It was initiated as a tool to remove unnecessary people from your account. However, this can also happen between you and people you know. It’s a person’s choice to block one person. We hope this guide helped you understand how to know if someone blocked you on Facebook and its signs. SOURCE Read all >>

Gaming and its effect (1)

ChukwudiNebo | 2021-11-062501

News
Hello T-fans, From a glance on the title, one must have concluded what the subject of gaming and its effect is. Conversely, do you have an in-dept knowledge of what gaming and its effect is? The term gaming originated as a synonym for gambling although most electronic games today do not involve gambling in the traditional sense. Well, Gaming is the running of specialized applications known as electronic games or video games on game consoles like X-box, PlayStation, personal computers, mobile phones etc. According to GameTrack (2016), 18 million people in the UK play games - this equates to around 38% of everyone in the 6-64 age bracket. Gamers are often imagined as adolescent males, but statistics show that this demographic (males ages 15-24) make up just 16% of the overall audience. In fact, 43% of UK gamers are female and audience is split fairly evenly across age groups. With that said, one can say that 'casual gaming' refers to intermittent gaming while 'hardcore gaming' is reserved for people who spend a lot of time gaming. Surprisingly, gaming has grown increasingly complex with enhanced graphics, full-motion video, 3-D effects and high-fidelity stereo sound. Even the biggest players in the console market which are Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo - whose current models are playStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch respectively utilize the use of specialized input devices such as joysticks and steering wheels to enhance the ability of the user to interact with the programs. In Recent times gaming has evolved into virtual reality gaming which gives the gamer a first-hand player immersion experience. As the name implies, virtual reality games are the application of a three-dimensional (3-D) artificial environment to computer games. Virtual reality environment is created using VR software and presented to the user in such a way that they supersede the real-world environment, creating suspension of disbelief and helping the user experience the VR environment as real (techtarget.com). virtual reality games have gained an increased popularity since its first lunch in 2012 by an American teenager Palmer luckey who later sold the company to Mark Zuckerberg for 2 billion dollars. With this technology, competitors like HTC vive and Sony's PlayStation VR evolved and the use of smart phone-powered headset such as Samsung's Gear VR and Google cardboard is more popular. what's more important is the virtual reality headset which can be connected using a cell phone attached to the front of the headset (usually cheaper to acquire) or to a gaming console or even to a gaming PC which runs apps and games (more expensive to acquire). Headphones, hand controllers, gaming joypads and treadmills are accessories that improves and replicate your real-world gestures into the game.

MANCHESTER DERBY PREVIEW

Joshuaboy | 2021-11-060285

Football
Hi T-fans, The Manchester Derby is one of the most anticipated fixtures each season in the Premier League. The Manchester derby takes place this weekend on Saturday by 1:30pm Nigerian time as one of the biggest clashes in the Premier League. Manchester United and Manchester City both need a win to move up in the standings, but also for bragging rights until next season.The two sides have been in unconvincing form as City occupy third and United fifth in the Premier League. The Reds go into the game on the back of a late 2-2 draw with Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League midweek, whilst City ran out 4-1 winners over Club Brugge at the Etihad. Having suffered a disastrous 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool only a few weeks ago, Solskjaer knows he cannot afford to have a repeat this time round against Manchester City if he is to turn the Reds season around. Victory over Spurs last weekend and rescuing a point midweek against Atalanta with Ronaldo coming to the rescue may have eased the pressure somewhat on Solskjaer, but that defeat to Liverpool is still very much fresh in the minds of many and in facing Manchester City on Saturday afternoon it gives the Norwegian a real opportunity to put the Liverpool defeat behind him and really kick start United’s season again. However, it wont be easy. Manchester City remain arguably the best team in the land and for United to beat them they will without doubt have to be at their very best. Manchester City, however are in poor domestic form after losing their last two matches. The Citizens were eliminated from the EFL Cup after a 0-0 draw with West Ham, which they lost on penalties. City were then stunned by a 2-0 home defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Pep Guardiola’s side responded with a 4-1 win against Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday. Away form has been an issue for the Citizens recently. They are winless in three of their last five in all competitions. Losses to Paris St Germain and West Ham have come away, and the Citizens were also held to a 2-2 stalemate against Liverpool, despite leading the game twice. Team News Paul Pogba is suspended, and defensive duo Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof are doubtful due to injury. City midfielder Fernan Torres is ruled out with an ankle injury. Centre back Aymeric Laporte was sent off against Palace and is unavailable. The points could be shared at Old Trafford, and goals are expected as the sides have struggled for clean sheets this season and it will be a close affair. What are your predictions for this match? Will Ronaldo rescue Manchester United once again? Or will Manchester City run roit at Old Trafford? Read all >>

DOES ORAIMO FREEPODS 3 BEATS APPLE AIRPODS PRO?

ts09017441524 | 2021-11-050220

Buds 1
Hello T-Fans, With the recent release of the oraimo 2baba FreePods 3, the features herein are so sophisticated like the Apple AirPods Pro; that you may not be missing out on any functionality going for either of the two-power gadgets. In more ways than one, the oraimo FreePods 3 is highly preferred among new generation content curators because it offers more freedom to explore their creativity, minimizing restrictions from device incompatibility. It is no more news that Apple’s buds have some restrictions on android users; as the best features of the device are available only when the AirPods Pro is paired with other Apple devices, including their noise cancellation feature. Some Apple accessories don’t sync with android phones. Nevertheless, having no restrictions for IOS or windows platforms; the newly launched oraimo FreePods 3 is the preferred choice for multiple phone users, because it pairs effortlessly with both Android and IOS devices, and has an environmental noise cancellation technology that is just as effective as the ones from the bitten Apple brand. Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) earbuds can shut out external noise so that users can have a better voice call regardless of the chatter or other noises in the environment. With this technology, game-playing geeks can communicate with each other more freely and phone calls are clearer than ever before. ENC technology is one of the important features that make the FreePods 3 stand out; especially in Nigeria where there are so many distracting sounds – from the noises in marketplaces and various conversations on commercial buses; to the noises that emanate from power-generating machines, no other feature best solves the reoccurring issue. The next-gen oraimo earbuds give users an awesome mode to go truly wireless; it has 2 modes in each pair. The bass mode blocks out ambient noise and stops air leakage to boost bass; the awareness mode will let you adapt to your surroundings.Unlike the AirPods, you can still listen to music and will hear clearly with the FreePods 3. In addition, the new power gadget from oraimo, is equipped with deep bass, 2Baba tuned sound and 4-Mic beamforming technology to track and provide high-quality signals. With the purchasing power of the average Nigerian constantly declining, the FreePods 3 is more affordable than the AirPods Pro; most mobile consumers believe that the Apple-branded earbuds are very expensive and, in most cases, overpriced. However, for earbuds users who are big on ENC technology and deep bass, choosing as to which of both brands ‘earbuds to buy, will depend on what matters more to them, love for ostentatious goods or the desire for functionality and affordability.

RESERVE AND WIN PHANTOM X WAS MASSIVE - See What The Winner Has To Say

CARLCARE NG | 2021-11-050192

Carlcare
Hello T-Fans, Last month, we threw out one of our greatest giveaways/activities of the year so far: the ‘Reserve & Win Phantom X’ activity. And guess what? It was massive! Over twenty thousand (20,000) of our customers and fans took part, of which more than 480 prizes—including TECNO's best smartphone: Phantom X—were up for grabs. Even with the "huge" prizes available to be snatched, we kept the activity simple that anyone could take part. The participants had to book a repair reservation with us, like our Facebook page, then join the Lucky Draw event to stand a winning chance after fulfilling the order. Simple? Now, the event has ended, and here's a summary of those who took home the bacon. The "Lucky Draw" was truly luck, yet many pulled through. For what seems like an eternity, the 'Reserve & Win' activity started on the 27th of September and ended on the 29th of October, summing up with the Lucky Draw event where participants received their lucky prizes. Though we had prizes slotted for over 480 winners, only 62 of them were lucky enough to win at least one of the prizes. Among those 62 lucky winners were the grand winner who snatched the Phantom X, six participants who hijacked new Power banks, seven participants who won a new TECNO Hipods-H3 (Bluetooth earphones), and forty-eight users who got for themselves recharge card tokens. Ranking Prize No of Winners Grand Prize Phantom X 1 Second Prize Power Banks 6 Third Prize Hipods-H3 7 Fourth Prize N300 Airtime 5 Fifth Prize N100 Airtime 43 Over the years, we’ve safeguarded our contests/events/giveaways from favouring only a set of people who "know the way," as you may call it, but virtually anyone who takes part. And yes, “Reserve to Win Phantom X” went like that. We opened the participation floor for anyone who came across the event to stand a chance of winning one of the prizes, including the TECNO Phantom X, Power banks, Bluetooth Earphones (Hipods-H3), and lots of Airtime. WHO WON THE TECNO PHANTOM X? Of all the prizes slotted for the ‘Reserve & Win Phantom X’ activity, the TECNO Phantom was the greatest, and of course, the most expensive. To be transparent enough and ensure the winner is a true participant, we made sure the winning chance is opened to only those who fulfilled their repair reservation order. With regards to that, we say a big shootout to Ojo Boluwatife Emmanuel, who emerged as the Phantom X winner‼! He must have been so lucky and favoured to win such a “hooooge” prize amongst thousands of participants. He was at Carlcare Lagos on Monday to receive his grand prize, after which he took to the Carlcare app to share how he’s always craved to have a Phantom X or the Infinix Zero X to assist him in his field. “I have always loved to have Phantom X or Infinix Zero so as to assist me with programming and web designing due to its specifications”, he acclaimed. He was also joyous to share his delightful experience with our services and staff and how he got a free screen replacement for his broken Infinix Note 10 within an hour, which led to the fulfilmnt of his reservation order, and eventually made him the Phantom X winner. "The staffs were all friendly and working with joy. I didn’t hesitate to get free screen replacement cards for both my NOTE 10 and my new Phantom X”, he added.

HOW TO BUILD STAMINA AND ENDURANCE

TSPOT HEALTH NG | 2021-11-05068

Tips and Tricks
Hello T-Fans, Remember the last post we made on building your desired body structure??? Well, this is an extension of that post. Go and read it in case you haven't read it. WHAT'S STAMINA? Stamina is the mental and physical ability to sustain an activity for a long period. When people talk about stamina, they often use it to refer to the feeling of being energetic while doing an activity. Endurance refers to your body’s physical capability to sustain an exercise for an extended period. It’s made up of two components: cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance. Cardiovascular Endurance:is the ability of your heart and lungs to fuel your body with oxygen. Muscular Endurance: is the ability of your muscles to work continuously without getting tired. Let's show you how to build your stamina and endurance: 1. THE SAID PRINCIPLE: One of the fundamental components of building an effective fitness program is the SAID principle. SAID means Specific adaptation to Imposed Demands. This ain't means engaging in exercises that will make your body adapt to it. So if you engage in activities that demand endurance and stamina, your body and muscles with time will adapt to it.Hence, consistency is the key. 2.AIM FOR MORE THAN 150 MINUTES PER WEEK:Exercising regularly can help boost your energy levels by helping you sleep better and increasing blood flow throughout your body. Getting about 150 minutes of aerobic exercises per week will greatly boost your stamina and endurance. 3.TRY HIIT TRAINING: High-intensityinterval training (HIIT) involves repetitive bouts of high-intensity intervals alternating with rest periods. An example would be 10-second sprints with a 30-second rest between each sprint. The exercises that falls under this category includes: push ups, pull ups, squat, riding a stationary bike, etc 4. FIND EXERCISES THAT YOU ENJOY: Many people associate getting fit with going to the gym, lifting weights, and running on a treadmill. However, even if you don’t enjoy these activities, there are plenty of ways to improve your fitness. Instead of forcing yourself to do an exercise you don’t like, think of activities you do enjoy.For example, if you hate running but love dancing, taking a dance class or Yoga. Don't allow peer pressure push you into taking an exercise you don't like or can't do. 5. STAY HYDRATED: This is one of the most important of them all. To avoid collapse or dehydration, you must stay hydrated whenever you engage in exercises. TECNO WISHES YOU A HAPPY WEEKEND. Read all >>
