Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading viruses and bacteria. If your immune system is strong, it should be able to fight off the virus if it does enter your body, but washing your hands provides a bit of extra protection.

Take your Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps strengthen our immune system. Citrus fruits and tomatoes are good sources of Vitamin C. You may also take Ascorbic Acid to supplement your Vitamin C needs - but ask your doctor before taking supplements.

Avoid Stress

It has been estimated that up to 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related. If you are stressed, your immune system weakens and does not work as it should.


Exercise improves the circulation and blood flow throughout your body. Exercising also helps your immune system to be more efficient in getting rid of viruses and diseases.

Get Enough Rest

Regular rest will keep you strong and ensure that your body has the strength to fight off any potential invaders.

Stay Indoors

If you start to feel the symptoms of flu – common cold, fever, cough, stay at home and rest. Drink plenty of liquids to keep you hydrated. Take your medicine as necessary.

The term feng shui (pronounced "fung schway") literally means "wind-water". It was originally used as a technique for choosing plots for palaces, as well as burial sites for the rich. Nowadays, people use feng shui as a technique of "working with nature", in the premise that the environment affects the way we feel and the way we act. Feng shui educates us on the importance of how positioning objects in the home or business can create a harmonious atmosphere.

Here are some basic and practical feng shui tips for your home.

1. Remove clutter. Keep your surroundings clean and orderly. Dispose of things that are no longer being used.

2. Choose items of regular shapes and sizes.

3. Wind chimes, bells and crystals dispel negative energy and attract and invigorate the "chi".

4. Choose plants with rounded tips instead of those that are edged or sharp.

5. Position mirros with care, as what you see doubles. Mirrors placed opposite walls or money pots is good, because it doubles your space or money. Never place a mirror opposite a toilet. A mirror placed opposite your bed could lead to infidelity.

6. Happy family photos should be placed on the south-west wall.

7. Fish tanks and fountains are good fortune enhancers.

8. Always display in pairs to ensure relationship success.

9. Never have your bed face the door. Lying in bed with your feet facing the door is known as the "coffin position".

10. If you need to have a fireplace, position it on the south wall, never on the north or north-west wall.

Take the time to look great!
Make an effort to wear something that will bring out your flattering features, and for ladies, do not be afraid to put makeup on. This will make you feel confident, and, as we all know, confident people attract attention.

Put a smile on your face
Smiling makes you look approachable and fun, qualities that will draw people close.

Make eye contact
Eye contact is a powerful form of non-verbal communication. Making eye contact shows that you are sincere and secure.

Go ahead and participate
If you are at a party, don’t just stay in one corner – mingle, chat or dance! If you’re in a meeting, participate! These seemingly simple actions will get people to notice you.

Use your sense of humor
People love to laugh. This makes us forget all the bad things and just relax.

1. Don’t be afraid to approach prominent people. Ask them about their success. Listen carefully to their answers, write them down for future reference and application in your own life.

2. Use motivators to help you succeed. Here are some examples:


3. First impressions are important. You are your own “best” or “worst” walking advertisement. Create an effective “hello”. Dress up your image so that others are impressed by you.

4. Select a hero or role model and emulate his or her outstanding attributes. Picture in your mind’s eye the strength of character and leadership qualities of your selected role model, then picture yourself as one possessing these desirable traits.
