Before I start to yan….
Let’s take a look at what the book of Dictionary said about definition of hygiene below..
“conditions or practices conducive to maintaining health and preventing disease, especially through cleanliness.”
Efe about to yan in 3…2…1…. Go!
Okay, those at the back, can you hear me? [ taps mic..] 😅
Taking care of ourselves should be the top priority of our lives – for all genders – at all ages.
And while there are different ways we can care for ourselves like reading, exercising, eating good food/fruits, etc..
What we’re gonna focus on today is Hygiene.
But, before we begin,
Answer these questions:
Are you hygienic?
On a scale of 0 – 100, how hygienic are you?
Tell yourself the truth o, even if you shall lie, though shalt nor lie to thyself – cos na fuck up be dat. 😁
Thing is, our personal hygiene would tell more about us than words would.
…and this could be for our own advantage or disadvantage – depends on the level of our hygiene… whether good or bad.
Do you practice a hygienic lifestyle on a normal basis or otherwise…
It’s funny to note that some people only tend to care about their hygiene when…
– they want to step out or…
– when they’re expecting a visitor.
If you fall in this category, biko change cos it’s not cool… maybe anyone hasn’t told you yet, but…
… I’m here telling you cos – I care about you and have your best interest at heart.
You just have to prioritize your hygiene, for your own good [E Get Why] 😉
Let’s consider some basics things that count…
Answer the following questions by yourself – for yourself…
– What’s your bathing routine like? How many times do you take your bath in a day…
– How often do you change your underwear?
– How many times do you wash your mouth in a day?
– What is the condition of your finger/toe nails – are they nicely cut or unkempt..
– What is the condition of your hair? – Properly cut/packed or left unkempt.
– Your body smell – do you use deodorant?
– What’s the condition of your apartment.. how neat and tidy is it? – how often do you clean your apartment — daily or any day the spirit leads or only when you’re expecting a visitor? (O wrong nau) 🤦🏾♂️
– Your kitchen, how clean is it? Do keep pile of dirty plates in your sink… when was the last time you cleaned your stove/gas head?…
– Your toilet, how often do you wash it? Once in month, or any time the spirit leads?
How often do you remove cobwebs from your home?
Now rate yourself again, on a scale of 0 -100, how hygienic are you?
Mheen…. in this my young life, I’ve seen people (family, friends, acquaintances n neighbors) of different hygienic level… seems those with poor hygiene are winning the game.
It’s painful many people go about hygiene with the wrong mindset… like, they think being hygienic has to do with lots of cash. ( E dey weak me) 💔🤦🏾♂️
If you’ve got that mindset from the pit of ‘dirtyness’ n hell, please, discard it Now…
Even Bible talk say ” Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
You don’t need to have heaven and earth before you start taking care yourself.. C’mon!
You can start taking care of your hygiene now, from where you are – and with what you have.
Here are some few ways you can do so…
To smell nice – there’s always a nice body spray, roll on & perfume – for all pocket sizes.
I no say make you go buy perfume wey go make you dey smell bush-bush o.😅
Buy the perfume within your expense range. You can always upgrade as your finance increases.
The point is, you must use a good perfume.
I can’t understand how some people would leave their various houses with using a perfume. And when they start sweating… (Father Lord!) 🤧
Please, don’t be one of those heartless people that don’t care about themselves, without consideration for the people they’d be around as they step out.
Body odor wey fit choke!
You can always maintain your finger/toe nails by yourself- even if you can’t afford a pedicure/manicure session at the moment.
You can use a razor blade or nail cutter- you can always afford them.
Your apartment, please clean it daily.
For me, I believe your surrounding, the apartment you live in somehow affects the quality of your thoughts.
… like, if your room is tidy and smells nice, your brain would think sharp, and your productivity will increase.
But…. if your room is untidy – clothes littered everywhere, sand, dirty plates piled up and smelling in the kitchen… dirty clothes piled up and smelling from wardrobe….
Omo, I’ve been inside the apartment of some people (family, friend, acquaintances and neighbors), whose homes are like the description above – and they’re perfectly comfortable in it.
E dey choke me!
Mheeen, I’ve seen people- both guys and babes who looks fly and dope on the outside, but… on getting to their apartment, it’s nothing to write home about.
I mean from the hygienic point of view.
Yeah, their apartment is well furnished but the condition of the home is so so unTidy – Rough would be too nice to describe it!
Some, I try to voice my thoughts based on level of our closeness – sometimes I blast, other times go subtle.
There’re some people I’ve made a mental note not to enter their apartments again due to their poor hygiene.
I no go allow anybody use their bad hygiene tey affect mental health.
There was this babe that we were feeling ourselves then….
omo, the babe foiineee, and she dey intelligent with nice body too.
What made me lost interest in her was that, the few times I visited her apartment… I didn’t like what I saw.
And guys dey rush her o, hot girl for the net. She’s A model, actually.
I was like, if her apartment is always untidy, how would her inside be?
Mheen, I’m very picky with ladies I roll with, my standard is high when it comes to that. ( I no dey carry do) 😊
I can’t be with anyone that my unborn kids would pick dirtiness from. 😊
I don’t fuck with hygiene… It’s a priority and among the top 5 things I look for in a babe before we can get close…
My spec of babe? – Beauty, Brain, Good Character, Hygiene, Smartness is a must-have, other things could be added bonus.
No be to dey claim or form big boy or big girl o, question is -Are you hygienic both inside and outside?
I’ve seen some instances where some people don’t take their bath before stepping outside.
They’d just wear their clothes and baptize themselves with perfume and off they go… (I dun see tins o) 😑
take care of yourself o. Your hygiene is your life.
Take care of you and your environment, your surrounding reflects You.
…even if it’s a one room apartment you live in sef – tidy it and keep it neat for You, for your own good.
Do it for yourself, regularly – not only when you’re expecting a visitor or anytime your spirit leads…. or because you want to impress Anyone.
You can Always package yourself with What You Have at the moment, while you grind for an upgrade.
If your hygiene game is spot on… both inwardly and outwardly- you’d feel great always.
…. You’d feel comfortable with yourself. You’d find joy in being alone in your own company – trust me.
And the quality of your thoughts, life and productivity will increase tremendously.
If we really look some kine tins well ehn, we go discover say…
Life No Too Hard Laidat. 😉
Most times na we dey make things difficult for ourselves cos we dey live life with the wrong approach, attitude and mindset.
I’m not saying life is all rosy o, don’t get me wrong.
My point is, if we take care of the basic things,
If we prioritize the right things and do our best to achieve the them, everything will fall in place.
Las las – We Go Dey Alright! ✌🏾💯
