Banana and Cinnamon Beverage

Drink Banana And Cinnamon Beverage One Hour Before Going To Sleep And See What Will Happen! Incredible

Our overall health depends on our good night sleep. Sleep can determine the quality of life, as it can help in protecting your mental and physical health. It also supports proper brain function, keeps physical health and supports growth and development in children and teens.

On the other hand, chronic sleep deprivation can cause some serious health problems, as it affects people’s ability to react, think, work, learn and communicate. According to the Institute of Medicine in America, more than 50 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep deprivation or poor sleep.

This article will offer you the best solution in case of sleeping problems. Consume this homemade banana-cinnamon drink one hour before going to bed and you will solve any sleeping disorders!

Banana- cinnamon drink- Recipe
·         1 banana
·         ½ tablespoon cinnamon
·         1 liter of water
Method of preparation:
Boil the water in a small pot. Cut off the very ends of the banana and add it to the boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes. Pour water through the colander into a tea cup.
Add a pinch of cinnamon to improve the taste.

Consume this amazing drink an hour before going to bed.
Both ingredients of this drink are extremely beneficial. Cinnamon is rich in essential oils as eugenol, phenylpropanoids which are chemical compounds and are responsible for cinnamon’s sweet and aromatic scent.
It also improves blood circulation and digestion, which can affect your sleep. Moreover, it is the perfect ingredient for this recipe as it will improve its taste and will help your body to relax.
On the other hand, bananas are highly effective against insomnia as they are rich in amino acid known as tryptophan which raises serotonin levels that are proven to regulate sleep patterns. Furthermore, bananas will also improve your mood and control your appetite, and since they are  rich in potassium, iron and calcium, minerals, they can be of great help with insomnia.
Nevertheless, if you drink does not bring results and you continue to have problems with sleeping than you may have some serious problems as: anxiety, unhealthy diet, mineral deficiencies and your life style. Although some sleeping pills may help at times, they cannot solve the actual problem. Therefore, you need to try different techniques which will help your brain and body to relax, to consume healthy food, reduce anxiety, and exercise more.

18 Signs of High Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.”
When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70 per cent of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption that IQ was the sole source of success.
Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90 per cent of top performers have high emotional intelligence.
Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.
Despite the significance of EQ, its intangible nature makes it very difficult to know how much you have and what you can do to improve if you’re lacking. You can always take a scientifically validated test, such as the one that comes with the Emotional Intelligence 2.0 book.
Unfortunately, quality (scientifically valid) EQ tests aren’t free. So, I’ve analyzed the data from the million-plus people TalentSmart has tested in order to identify the behaviors that are the hallmarks of a high EQ. What follows are sure signs that you have a high EQ.
1. You have a robust emotional vocabulary
All people experience emotions, but it is a select few who can accurately identify them as they occur. Our research shows that only 36 per cent of people can do this, which is problematic because unlabeled emotions often go misunderstood, which leads to irrational choices and counterproductive actions.
People with high EQs master their emotions because they understand them, and they use an extensive vocabulary of feelings to do so. While many people might describe themselves as simply feeling “bad,” emotionally intelligent people can pinpoint whether they feel “irritable,” “frustrated,” “downtrodden,” or “anxious.” The more specific your word choice, the better insight you have into exactly how you are feeling, what caused it, and what you should do about it.
2. You’re curious about people
It doesn’t matter if they’re introverted or extroverted, emotionally intelligent people are curious about everyone around them. This curiosity is the product of empathy, one of the most significant gateways to a high EQ. The more you care about other people and what they’re going through, the more curiosity you’re going to have about them.
3. You embrace change
Emotionally intelligent people are flexible and are constantly adapting. They know that fear of change is paralyzing and a major threat to their success and happiness. They look for change that is lurking just around the corner, and they form a plan of action should these changes occur.
4. You know your strengths and weaknesses
Emotionally intelligent people don’t just understand emotions; they know what they’re good at and what they’re terrible at. They also know who pushes their buttons and the environments (both situations and people) that enable them to succeed. Having a high EQ means you know your strengths and you know how to lean into them and use them to your full advantage while keeping your weaknesses from holding you back.
5. You’re a good judge of character
Much of emotional intelligence comes down to social awareness; the ability to read other people, know what they’re about, and understand what they’re going through. Over time, this skill makes you an exceptional judge of character. People are no mystery to you. You know what they’re all about and understand their motivations, even those that lie hidden beneath the surface.
6. You are difficult to offend
If you have a firm grasp of whom you are, it’s difficult for someone to say or do something that gets your goat. Emotionally intelligent people are self-confident and open-minded, which creates a pretty thick skin. You may even poke fun at yourself or let other people make jokes about you because you are able to mentally draw the line between humor and degradation.
7. You know how to say no (to yourself and others)
Emotional intelligence means knowing how to exert self-control. You delay gratification, and you avoid impulsive action. Research conducted at the University of California, San Francisco, shows that the more difficulty that you have saying no, the more likely you are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression. Saying no is indeed a major self-control challenge for many people. “No” is a powerful word that you should not be afraid to wield. When it’s time to say no, emotionally intelligent people avoid phrases such as “I don’t think I can” or “I’m not certain.” Saying no to a new commitment honors your existing commitments and gives you the opportunity to successfully fulfill them.
8. You let go of mistakes
Emotionally intelligent people distance themselves from their mistakes, but do so without forgetting them. By keeping their mistakes at a safe distance, yet still handy enough to refer to, they are able to adapt and adjust for future success. It takes refined self-awareness to walk this tightrope between dwelling and remembering. Dwelling too long on your mistakes makes you anxious and gun shy, while forgetting about them completely makes you bound to repeat them. The key to balance lies in your ability to transform failures into nuggets of improvement. This creates the tendency to get right back up every time you fall down.
9. You give and expect nothing in return
When someone gives you something spontaneously, without expecting anything in return, this leaves a powerful impression. For example, you might have an interesting conversation with someone about a book, and when you see them again a month later, you show up with the book in hand. Emotionally intelligent people build strong relationships because they are constantly thinking about others.
10. You don’t hold grudges
The negative emotions that come with holding onto a grudge are actually a stress response. Just thinking about the event sends your body into fight-or-flight mode, a survival mechanism that forces you to stand up and fight or run for the hills when faced with a threat. When the threat is imminent, this reaction is essential to your survival, but when the threat is ancient history, holding onto that stress wreaks havoc on your body and can have devastating health consequences over time. In fact, researchers at Emory University have shown that holding onto stress contributes to high blood pressure and heart disease. Holding onto a grudge means you’re holding onto stress, and emotionally intelligent people know to avoid this at all costs. Letting go of a grudge not only makes you feel better now but can also improve your health.
11. You neutralize toxic people
Dealing with difficult people is frustrating and exhausting for most. High EQ individuals control their interactions with toxic people by keeping their feelings in check. When they need to confront a toxic person, they approach the situation rationally. They identify their own emotions and don’t allow anger or frustration to fuel the chaos. They also consider the difficult person’s standpoint and are able to find solutions and common ground. Even when things completely derail, emotionally intelligent people are able to take the toxic person with a grain of salt to avoid letting him or her bring them down.
12. You don’t seek perfection
Emotionally intelligent people won’t set perfection as their target because they know that it doesn’t exist. Human beings, by our very nature, are fallible. When perfection is your goal, you’re always left with a nagging sense of failure that makes you want to give up or reduce your effort. You end up spending your time lamenting what you failed to accomplish and what you should have done differently instead of moving forward, excited about what you’ve achieved and what you will accomplish in the future.
13. You appreciate what you have
Taking time to contemplate what you’re grateful for isn’t merely the right thing to do; it also improves your mood because it reduces the stress hormone cortisol by 23 per cent. Research conducted at the University of California, Davis, found that people who worked daily to cultivate an attitude of gratitude experienced improved mood, energy, and physical well-being. It’s likely that lower levels of cortisol played a major role in this.
14. You disconnect
Taking regular time off the grid is a sign of a high EQ because it helps you to keep your stress under control and to live in the moment. When you make yourself available to your work 24/7, you expose yourself to a constant barrage of stressors. Forcing yourself offline and even–gulp!–turning off your phone gives your body and mind a break. Studies have shown that something as simple as an e-mail break can lower stress levels. Technology enables constant communication and the expectation that you should be available 24/7. It is extremely difficult to enjoy a stress-free moment outside of work when an e-mail that will change your train of thought and get you thinking (read: stressing) about work can drop onto your phone at any moment.
15. You limit your caffeine intake
Drinking excessive amounts of caffeine triggers the release of adrenaline, and adrenaline is the source of the fight-or-flight response. The fight-or-flight mechanism sidesteps rational thinking in favor of a faster response to ensure survival. This is great when a bear is chasing you, but not so great when you’re responding to a curt e-mail. When caffeine puts your brain and body into this hyper-aroused state of stress, your emotions overrun your behavior. Caffeine’s long half-life ensures you stay this way as it takes its sweet time working its way out of your body. High-EQ individuals know that caffeine is trouble, and they don’t let it get the better of them.
16. You get enough sleep
It’s difficult to overstate the importance of sleep to increasing your emotional intelligence and managing your stress levels. When you sleep, your brain literally recharges, shuffling through the day’s memories and storing or discarding them (which causes dreams) so that you wake up alert and clearheaded. High-EQ individuals know that their self-control, attention, and memory are all reduced when they don’t get enough–or the right kind–of sleep. So, they make sleep a top priority.
17. You stop negative self-talk in its tracks
The more you ruminate on negative thoughts, the more power you give them. Most of our negative thoughts are just that–thoughts, not facts. When it feels like something always or never happens, this is just your brain’s natural tendency to perceive threats (inflating the frequency or severity of an event). Emotionally intelligent people separate their thoughts from the facts in order to escape the cycle of negativity and move toward a positive, new outlook.
18. You won’t let anyone limit your joy
When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from the opinions of other people, you are no longer the master of your own happiness. When emotionally intelligent people feel good about something that they’ve done, they won’t let anyone’s opinions or snide remarks take that away from them. While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to compare yourself to others, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within.

You are Welcome, Business Partner!

Mary Gumisiriza is my name and I am happy to have this opportunity to share with you how I came into the GNLD business and what has made me successful in it. I am an advisor on investments and finance and am in the business of helping people achieve financial freedom as well as starting businesses. 

Why did I join GNLD
Sixteen years ago, someone, a friend of my sister came to my office in the Bank where I was working and introduced to me wonderful products from USA and South Africa. He showed me the product brochure and gave a brief about  some of the products. I was attracted by a product called Super 10, a multipurpose cleaner. When he said it can help remove stains, I bought it to help clean my bath tub that had stains and other products on the market had failed to remove these stains. The product worked well and I started using it to clean my tiles, walls, cooker, fridge, car and car engine and other things. It is biodegradable with no toxins and therefore environment friendly. Whenever it got finished, I would order for another one from him. So I was his CUSTOMER.  In this business, the more customers you have, the better. I believe you have a lot of people around you whom you know, who would like good quality products to make their cleaning activities easier. These people include your friends, relatives, neighbours, office colleagues, and others. 

Then one day, a colleague of mine in the office called Sarah saw me with the product. She asked me how I got it. I told her a friend of mine sells it to me. She responded by saying, “ this product is from a company called GNLD International based in USA. When you become a member you will buy your product at a discount, you can sell to your friends and earn a profit and you will earn a bonus at the end of every month when you share the opportunity with others. “

Use the Product
I actually joined because I wanted to buy products at a lower price.  When I got my Business Kit, I read more about the products and discovered that I needed Aloe Vera Plus for my ulcers and stress. I needed the skin care products for my skin, Vita squares, Vita guard and Nutrishake for the children and Omega3, Garlic Allium complex and Formula Iv for my husband who had high blood pressure. For home care I added on LDC and G1 Laundry to wash my clothes. I started enjoying the whole range of GNLD products and the family was happy with their unique performance. I started to look younger because of the good skin and health care products. I was not comfortable sharing the opportunity because I was shy and not trained in people skills.

Then one day, I was invited for training at a nice hotel in Kampala. I loved the training on the business, the products and in particular the personal growth topics. Topics to do with attitude, talking to people, having goals and dreams, etc. I did more trainings and in the process I started changing as a person. I became more confident and more open to listening to other people’s challenges.

Sharing the Product
By listening to others, I was able to suggest solutions to people’s challenges. If someone had Children who lacked appetite, I would find it easy to recommend Vita Squares because it had worked for my children and my people relationship skills had improved. For a good car wash I would sell Wash and Wax, etc. On following up with my customers, I would be excited to hear about the positive testimonies about the products and that made me like the business more.
Sharing the Opportunity
As time went on, people started asking me about how the opportunity worked. I shared with them explaining how the business worked and how one could make money out of it. Some registered and became members for the sake of buying their products at a discount like I did, while others stayed as customers.

Financial Freedom
More and more people joined the network and I started receiving bonus cheques based on the marketing plan of the company. The cheques start small and keep growing as the network grows. I was able to retire early from formal employment in 2004 and I now do this business full time. The income received monthly covers my monthly expenses and I invest the surplus mainly in real estate businesses.

Travel Benefits
Courtesy of this business, I have travelled to various places in Uganda and many destinations around the world fulfilling one of my big dreams of having a holiday abroad every year.  I have been to Pretoria SA 1999, Johannesburg SA 2006, Nairobi 2007, London 2008, San Francisco USA 2009, Durban 2009, Nairobi 2010, Cape Town 2011, Victoria Falls Zambia 2012. In 2013 I will be going to Dubai for the GNLD World Team Conference.

Spending More time with Family
I do this business with my family which brings us closer as we spend more time together. We travel together and the company caters for both husband and wife. I work with my daughter and son in the business and they all earn their bonuses independently.

Business Skills
This business equips one with free business skills that can be applied to any other business. I have learnt to persevere, to be patient, to  stay focused, delayed gratification, teamwork, good relationships, time management, personal budgeting and saving, planning, writing my goals and dreams, etc. My relationships with my team, my family members, new people has greatly improved.

This is a lifetime business where you are assured of earning some income on a daily basis as long as you do the four basics. The more you do the basics, the more money you make. My retirement is now assured with a comfortable lifestyle for the rest of my life. I welcome you to be my business partner in this enjoyable journey.

Good Business

When people decide to start a business on their own, they always look for the following:-

  • One where you can start and learn at your own pace;
  • One where there are no financial pressures due to huge start-up costs, high stockholding & debtors/creditors problems;
  • One that is not limited to a specific location but can be operated anywhere in the world;
  • One that is not time consuming but that you can start on a part time basis and can ease into it;
  • One with little administrative costs;
  • One that keeps your full intellect and emotional energies challenged;
  • One where you can earn international currencies;
  • One that gives you time to be more with your family;
  • One where there are opportunities to travel and change of lifestyle; and
  • One where there is recognition and fun.

When you subtract out the sleeping time, travel time, working time and things you have to do daily in your life, most people don’t have more than one to two hours a day to do what they would like to do; and then, would they have the money to do it?

I discovered a way a person can be their own boss by building a home based business using a simple system that doesn't require selling, and the best part is, it won’t take much of your time.  The system is called Network Marketing or Multilevel Marketing and it is a wonderful opportunity that anyone can start part time or full time. One needs about 2hrs a day to work on it and can achieve financial freedom within 3 to 5 years. The more time you allocate to the business, the faster you grow. I started the business in 2006 and today in 2012 most of my  short and medium term dreams are achieved including having a holiday every year in 5 star facilities and resorts all over the world. Wouldn't you love annual holidays?

Operating a Business

Its exciting and tough to run businesses when you are used to working for someone else. You have to first work on your attitude and learn to work out solutions quickly as soon as challenges arise. If you keep crying and nagging about a challenge you will backslide in your work and no one is going to help you put food on the table. You are on your own!

Among the things one has to do to run a business successfully is to get organized. Plan on having the business registered so that you can open its own account. Money for business does not mix with your own money!! Make sure that you deposit all the money from the business on the account and manage it from there.

The words we speak into our lives can either bless or curse us. All that is good has its source in God. When a person speaks positively, God reinforces the words such that they bring blessings. On the other hand, if a person speaks negatively, Satan, who is usually behind negative proclamations, comes in to reinforce those words and they become curses.


There are many people who settle short of what God has in store for them.I hope you are not in this category. In case you are, the time has come to move on.God would love to do greater things to you and through you. God is not limited by anything. As long as you have breathe in you, you can do greater things in your life. You were created for excellence. Do not sell yourself short.

From Curses to Blessings by Rose Kifa

I am currently reading this book and will be posting information from it as it touches my life. Am on page 18 and I find it very educative on what blessings and curses are. I expect my thinking to change for the better after reading the book!

Have a Big Dream

I am called Mary Gumisiriza, a self employed business lady in Kampala, Uganda. I used to work for somebody else and during the time I was working, I had to look for ways of earning extra income to supplement our family needs. Since 2005, I have been self employed having taken early retirement end 2004. My objective in life is to help as many people as I can to be financially free by empowering them with financial and leadership skills. For those employed, I would like to help them learn how to make extra income so that they become debt free and lead a stress-less life. My values include Honesty, Integrity and Creativity.

All successful people started with a big dream to reach where they are today. For example Mulwana in Uganda had a big dream of selling Batteries, etc. The inventors of Dell had a bid dream of availing a computer in everyone's home. The woman who sells sweets on the streets has a big dream of taking her children to school. She starts small and eventually makes it!! Therefore, to earn extra income smartly and efficiently,you need to start dreaming if you have not yet done so. Have a big dream that gives you sleepless nights. When you wake up in the morning, jump out of bed knowing you are going to do something moving you closer to your big dreams.

My big dream was to be my own boss, and through learning the skills of earning extra income, I was able to attain it. My big dream now is to own a multistory building on Kampala Road giving me more than US$ 10,000 per month! Very big indeed! But I will make it!! One just has to start small and grow big progressively.

You can start now to earn extra income especially if you are employed by someone else. Start to DREAM now!
