Things Your Husband Wishes You Could Do Better

We spend much of our day running at full speed. It’s not surprising, therefore, that we might roll our eyes at the idea of adding more things to our to-do list, especially if it involves trying harder to please our mate. Are they doing enough for me, you might ask? While it’s important to have your own needs met, it’s also vital to see your marriage as a partnership.
Marriage requires hard work and sacrifice. It requires teamwork and remember, there is no “I” in teamwork. It is not about you alone or your husband too. It is about both of you. Therefore, don’t wait for him to send that flower first. You don’t have to wait for your husband to start doing the right things — be the one who sparks the change! So, in that spirit, here are some things that your husband wishes you’d do more often.

ENJOY LIFE, HAVE FUN
Life can be so hectic nowadays it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important. We are often juggling multiple obligations at once and, in order to keep up, we can become fixated on maintaining certain schedules and routines — but what if, once in a while, we got spontaneous and canceled plans in order to do something outlandish or fun?
Your husband would probably love it if you just let loose and decided to go with the flow for a change. It might be tough, at first, to buck with tradition but, ultimately, you will probably end up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Pro tip: Ditch the office during lunchtime and meet up with your hubby instead. You will both enjoy that extra time together in the middle of the day!

 

DITCH THE MAKE UP
When it comes to your own appearance, do what makes you feel happy and comfortable. If that means applying makeup every morning, then so be it! We all deserve to feel good in our own skin.
That being said, why not skip the beauty regimen once in a while? Despite what the magazines try to sell us, studies are showing that men actually prefer when women wear less makeup. Who would have thought?
Pro tip: On your next date night, try a more natural look, and see if he comments on the change. As long as you feel beautiful, and you’re up to it, why not experiment a little!

LET IT GO
No man likes a nagging wife. Men hate it! If you’ve had to repeat something multiple times or just happen to be having a bad day, it’s really tempting to just harp on some problem or mistake your husband has made. You might even be venting about a friend, family member, or coworker who has upset you in some way.
It’s definitely important that you continue to communicate with your husband — and you deserve to see him as a confidante — but once you have made your point, he might appreciate if you reel it in a little. Your blood might still be boiling but you will know when the opportunity arises, that this time, it’s best to drop it.

BE DOMINANT ONCE IN A WHILE
We like to make the first move and love the control of dominating things, making choices for others especially the family, taking the initiative to make things happen but we also love a woman who takes the initiative to make the first move. We don’t have to initiate sex, jokes or conversations. We all have our preferences about whether we are the pursuer or the pursued, and really, many women seem to prefer being chased. As long as your partner is fine with this dynamic, it’s no one’s business but your own. Deep down, though, he might really wish that — once in a while — you were the hunter. Of course, there are plenty of relationships where the wife takes on this role regularly but, if you traditionally haven’t, it could be a nice surprise.

PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE!
The age of snapchatting and instagramming every aspect of your life should have its limits. Not everything is for social media, especially your love life and family. Learn to micro-gatekeep the content of what you put out there.
Also, it’s pretty frustrating to try to have a conversation with someone when their face is buried into the screen of their phone. We’ve all been annoyed by this, yet, we still do it to others on a regular basis.
Your husband probably wishes you’d toss that thing aside more often and focus on him, especially if you are easily upset by things you see on social media (and, therefore, need to vent), or the glare keeps him up at night!
Pro tip: First thing in the morning and right before bed, try to have a “phone-free” chat with your husband so that you begin and end each day feeling connected.

BE MORE ADVENTUROUS
Do you find it hard to step out of your comfort zone? If so, you are not alone. It’s so much easier to stick with what we know than to strike out and engage in completely new (possibly scary) experiences.
It’s very possible, therefore, that your husband would love for you to try something he loves or is interested in but you aren’t too sure about.
Pro tip: Once a week, push yourself to delve into uncharted territory, even if it’s just making an unfamiliar meal or trying looking for another way to keep the kitchen cleaner. You’ll only grow stronger from the experience! In short, let him see you challenging yourself. It will challenge him and build trust between both of you.

APPRECIATE HIS EFFORTS
Too often in a relationship, we take our partner’s contributions for granted. Pay attention to the things your husband does to make you happy and let him know how much you appreciate it.
You could buy some sticky notes and randomly leave them around the house with encouraging words for your hubby. You will both probably get a boost from the positivity!

BE REALISTIC
Society, especially social media and television perpetuates a lot of myths about what a good marriage should look like.
What if your husband doesn’t bring you flowers, but always makes sure your car is gassed up, the toilet paper roll is replaced, and the air filters are changed on time? Are your unrealistic expectations about romance interfering with your ability to see the ways in which he shows you how much he loves you?
Learn to appreciate the little things. They make up the big things. Don’t live a social media life. It may be too expensive for your husband and to your marriage. Take a moment to really think about all of the ways in which your husband makes you a priority. You might be surprised by all of his small gestures

Artistes, HDI Join Forces To Promote Responsible Living Among The Youth In Covid-19 Times

Young people engage in ‘Amabara’ and sometimes parents or guardians will find out when there are consequences that can’t be hidden anymore such as pregnancy, addiction or other life-threatening conditions.

Amabara’ in Kinyarwanda can mean different colours but for young people ‘Amabara’ is a slang used by the youth to describe unexpected and undercover bad acts like getting too drunk, engaging in sexual activities, drug abuse and other acts that parents might not be aware of.

In a bid to sensitize young people to lead responsible lives and avoid the temptation of getting involved in engaging in nasty habits that could endanger their lives, 1k Entertainment and Health Development Initiative (HDI) joined forces to release a song to encourage young people to shun temptations and stay focused.

The song, which was released on Monday brought together musicians Amalon, Marina, Alyn Sano and rappers Bushali, and B-Threy was aimed at creating awareness among young people especially in this period of the new coronavirus outbreak which has exposed young people to more risks.

In this song, the boys are trying to seduce the girls at a party into sex, drinking and more but the girls want to take it slow and play it safe, a message to young people to avoid succumbing to peer pressure.

According to Pius Rukabuza, also known as Deejay Pius, the CEO of 1K Entertainment, the song encourages young people to remain cautious and stay safe during the period of the pandemic.

“During these hard times of the Covid pandemic, we, the youth, should also remember that there are other health issues that can limit or hinder our potential,”

“Unwanted pregnancies and other sexually transmitted diseases are still a threat to our health. As Musicians, we made a song to remind the youth to take care of their lives by taking right decisions.

Juliette Karitanyi, the Head of Communications at HDI Rwanda, the song raises issues such as abstinence, condom use and also in case of a mistake (Amabara), how one can seek help and support.

“HDI partnered with a group of young musicians to increase young people’s knowledge on their responsibility of their health especially during this time of the pandemic of Covid-19, where many are confined at home,”

“Through this song, they get to hear different messages on curbing teenage pregnancies, healthy relationships, complying with Covid-19 preventive measures and family planning,” Karitanyi said.

She mentioned that the best way was to communicate to young people during this time, it’s through a channel they are all familiar with and music is one them.

“It’s language that they can easily understand and relate to. There are so many general messages out there but this one is only about the youth, and we hope that young people will join force in taking responsible decisions concerning their sexual and reproductive health as well as their health in general during this time of the pandemic,” she added.

The song was produced by Madebeats and Li John, while the video was directed by Serge Girishya. By press time, it had been watched over 43, 000 on Youtube.

Sio wale wanaosema ‘wao’ a-a-ah. Nilimwona nikampitisha. Kwa hiyo Esma umetunfungulia njia, kakako anafuata,” Makonda said.

“Nina imani mwezi wa nane huu tukikamilisha. Tulikuwa na mpango tufanye mambo yaende haraka lakini tukasema baada ya kuchaguliwa kwa Dr Magufuli kwa awamu ya pili basi tutafanya sherehe ya harusi lakini mwezi huu (Agosti) tunaenda kutoa mahari,” Makonda added.

What Doctors Won’t Tell You: Find Out 6 Habits That Endanger Your Health

Health is wealth and should be taken paramount. No one loves to have the sickly feeling and anxieties over health matters.

Falling ill is a very odd thing as it could be very disadvantageous; hinders plans and actions – for a fact no one would boldly choose or love to be ill. In as much as we won’t want to encounter health disorders and illnesses; we most times happen to be the causes of these happenings.

The body is to be maintained in a lot of ways from diets to water in-takes, environmental control, exercises; all of these are usually important in holding our health together but oftentimes they are not adhered to as it ought to, hence resulting in abnormal health conditions that could have been avoided early enough.

Habits are routines and behaviors that are repeated regularly and even occurs in our subconscious. Habits affect us generally, it is not surprising that it can affect our health too.

Some constant routines that we engage in can be really damaging to our healths; some of these habits give life-time effects and some short term effects, as subtle as they may look they do go a long way in affecting our health. Some of these bad habits and how they impair on our health;

  • Skimping on sleep; Falling short on sleep is a no-no, but what is the huge impact. Research shows that not getting enough shut-eye can affect a whole slew of things. Being sleep deprived may fuel depression. Though there are no magic numbers as to what amount of sleep a person is supposed to get however it is thoroughly encouraged to always give your body good sleep
  • Not changing your kitchen sponge regularly; This right here is shocking to find, however, you won’t hear these things regularly from your doctors. Your kitchen sponge can harbor 150 times more bacteria, mold, and yeast more than a toothbrush. Yuck! According to research from NSF International, most of the germs found could make you sick while some won’t. Regardless it is discomforting to realize the habit of having an old sponge for long time usage can be this consequential.
  • Choosing foods because they ‘’sound healthier’’; Pretty sure when you got into this post you ‘’ musta been’ expecting a post on healthy food that one must eat to look healthier. LoL! Not all food labels with such claims are right. Many people consume a lot of food that is labeled ‘’fat-free’’ not knowing the majority of food like that deliver more sugary content to the individual’s body. Many full-fat meals are actually healthier options
  • Not getting enough exercise; Keeping fit is hugely needed to stay healthy. While excess fat is regarded as an enemy to the body; exercising daily eradicates excess cholesterol from the body which leaves the body in a good shape. This habit can lead to accommodating an excessive fat disorder called ‘’Obesity’’.
  • Eating late at Night; Shocked about this?! Lol,’’ I don’t think so. How do you feel when you consume fatty foods and other ‘’heavy’’ foods at night? “Heavy?? Yes right. With no proper room and activities to aid digestion by making it faster, it may sometimes lead to constipation and in long-term belly fat. It’s a terrible habit that seriously impairs one’s health
  • Poor intake of water; Water is a very important component of the human body, it is hugely advised to have lots of it. A short intake of water results in huge health disorders. One of the most common is indigestion’’ —the stomach needs lots of water to create body acids that are needed for digestion. Poor intake of water also causes dehydration, skin dryness, fatigue, and headache…headaches’’?? Emphatically yes! When you have a poor water intake routine and hence dehydrated the brain tissues loses water causing your brain to shrink and pull away from the skull, this triggers the pain receptors surrounding the brain, hence, giving you a headache. Clearly seen that not all headaches are actively caused by unusual factors, rather a simple habit that we haven’t let off.

Live healthily by changing the seemingly simple things, the simple most things in life cause the complexities. Keep refreshing another exciting post would be made again in seconds!!!

Sheebah Reveals What She Misses Most During Quarantine

Everyone is missing something about their normal lives as we stay home to avoid the spread of the deadly COVID-19. For performers like Sheebah Karungi, however, you can only imagine how much of their overly social lives was deprived of them.

In the new photos she shared on her social media platforms, it is evident that Sheebah Karungi is enjoying the quarantine period – thickness in the right places, which woman wouldn’t want that?

With the body goals being achieved, however, the Team No Sleep songstress is not entirely comfortable with the lockdown which still has until 5th May to end as per the guidelines issued by President Museveni a few weeks ago.

The Tevunya singer says that she has managed to get enough rest for her body which is contrary to what she gets normally because she always has studio sessions and performances on other days.

Sheebah has also given the makeup brushes a break and her skin is glowing. She plans to restructure her schedule when normal business resumes to afford her body enough rest because she has realized the importance in it.

Personally, I have gotten some rest, my skin is breathing more…no daily make up sessions. Am reflecting on the fact that any physical business needs a back up plan regardless on how good the business is.

Sheebah

During this lockdown period, Sheebah misses performing for her fans and she cannot wait to hit the stage yet again. She misses the freedom of movement which she used to take for granted before.

Can’t wait to get back on stage thou, I Miss performing. I miss the freedom which we use to take for granted. I pray you all stay safe. Take care of yourselves.” – Sheebah Karungi
