Jay Z and Beyonce enjoy vacation amidst claims of pregnancy after Paris performance

Beyonce recently set fan’s tongues wagging that she is expecting her fourth child with husband Jay-Z, due to her outfit during their On The Run II tour.

And Beyoncé and Jay Z took a break amid the speculation and relaxed on a luxurious yacht off the Amalfi Coast in Italy, with their eldest Blue Ivy, 6, on Friday.

The couple have been wowing crowds with their world tour, causing fans to praise the songstress for continuing to perform if she is pregnant.

They are currently enjoying a breather from their tour, before starting the American leg next week, which they will continue until October.

Beyoncé and her beau relaxed in style on the stunning boat, taking time to lounge on the sun deck and document their trip with some snaps.

However their daughter managed to keep them busy as she offered a beach ball, no doubt to play some games aboard the vessel.

Cute: Blue Ivy seemed at ease with the family's company as she chatted away 

The If I Were A Boy hitmaker shaded her face from the rays in a floppy straw hat, which she teamed with colourful cover-up and a pair of thigh-skimming denim shorts.

The couple seemed in good spirits on the outing, amid claims they are expecting their fourth child together – rumours that were only accelerated when Beyonce took to the stage in Paris on Sunday clad in a skintight bodysuit.

She looked sensational as she wowed fans with another energetic performance, yet fans were convinced that she is expecting her fourth child with husband Jay-Z.

The most nominated woman in Grammy Award history gave birth to twins Rumi and Sir in June last year, and is also mother to daughter Blue Ivy, six.

Giving it her all for her performance in Paris, the Love On Top hitmaker dazzled in a figure-hugging white bodysuit that she teamed with denim hot pants and a colourful sequinned jacket.

Sharing clips of her performance on Twitter, fans weren’t bothered by the performance, however, but discussing whether or not she is pregnant again

They posted:

‘so when beyoncé gonna tell us she pregnant. i’m waiting …’; ‘Naw Beyoncé is really pregnant again omg. That’s so beautiful but damn sis MORE?’

‘Why would Beyoncé get pregnant when she’s on tour and already planning the next tour I can’t with y’all let her enjoy the European delicacies’; ‘Beyonce is pregnant’; ”Beyoncé’s pregnant again??!?!?!?!;’ ‘Beyoncé is pregnant again LMFAOOOOOOO’; ‘Beyoncé pregnant again?’

While already parents to Blue, six, and their one-year-old twins, the Beyhive has been quick to note that Beyoncé and Jay Z have quite an affinity for the number four.

Beyonce was born on September 4 while Jay Z (real name Shawn Carter) has a birthday on December 4. The couple were married on April 4, 2008.

He said

“You were a benefactor to the residents of this village, especially the children. The evidence showed the abject poverty of the inhabitants of the village. You chose the weakest of the girls in the village and preyed upon them,” 

Witty Comedian describes how slay queens talk to their old baes, how true is it?

The 72-year-old was found guilty of rape of a child under 16, three counts of sexual assault by penetration of a child under 16, two counts of sexual assault of a child under 16 and two counts of perverting the course of justice.

During a three-week trial in the UK, young victims gave evidence through a live video link from Mombasa.One of the victims told the court Morris, who was known to her as Mozzy, had done “bad things” to her when they stayed at a hotel.

‘My husband’s snoring leaves me tired and irritable’ Cries fed up wife

Excessive snoring can lead to interrupted sleep thus making one unproductive when a new day breaks, sometimes leading to divorce.

While couples try different remedies to help lessen the snoring, these measures may not always work hence a woman sought help to what she terms as irritable behaviour.

‘It felt so good not to care, for once I don’t feel guilty’ Confesses straying wife

She wrote

My husband’s snoring wakes me up at night and the lack of sleep is making my life hell, as I’m so tired and irritable the next day.

Even though I’ve recorded his snoring, he denies that he does it.

I thought I’d found the perfect solution in ear plugs and was getting the most wonderful deep sleep — until I developed painful blocked sinuses and my pharmacist said the ear plugs were to blame and to stop using them.

image-2018-07-03(28)(1)

I’m desperate for sleep, but please don’t suggest I move into the spare bedroom, as I love my husband dearly and fear this would ruin an otherwise very happy marriage.

According to Daily Mail, plugging on earplugs isn’t the solution, adding that an alternative way of achieving this without plugging the ear canals would be to wear comfortable, over-ear headphones. These can obliterate sound equally as well.

‘You are doing an amazing job,’ Kathy Kiuna praises single mums

Even better would be to use noise-cancelling headphones. Rather than simply blocking the noise, these use a technology that produces specific tones that cancel out external sound.

With some headphones, you can hear these tones, but with others, you don’t.Snoring soundwave effectively breaks down those from outside, making them useful on trains or planes when you need to sleep, read or concentrate.

‘Shame on you’ Jahmby Koikai slams fake account holder using her name

There are two disadvantages. One is the cost: these headphones are more expensive than ear plugs, though most are affordable.

More important is the problem of comfort because the use of these would preclude sleeping on your side.

Therefore, in the first instance, I would recommend that you revert to ear plugs, as I believe there must have been a different reason for your episode of sinus pain and it’s just a coincidence that the pain occurred when you were using ear plugs.

Ed Sheeran SUES musician after ban on royalties for his hit ‘Shape Of You’

Ed Sheeran was recently sued for $100 million for ‘ripping off parts of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let’s Get It On’ for his hit ‘Thinking Out Loud.’

According to Daily Mail, a report by The Sun suggests that Ed Sheeran, 27, has filed a lawsuit against musician Sam Chokri after losing royalties to his song The Shape Of You when the latter claimed the song ‘was a copy of his 2015 track ‘Oh Why.’

The singer’s lawyers submitted a writ to London’s High Court on Saturday against Chokri, 25, and songwriter Ross O’Donoghue for ‘damaging [Sheeran] reputationally’ and hitting his ‘revenue streams’.

Sheeran is said to have received no money for his 2017 hit – which is said to have  amassed £20million thus far – ever since May 10 after the Performing Rights Society put the song ‘into suspense.’

The PRS makes decisions on royalty payouts, and had blocked him from receiving royalties upon considering an expert report submitted by Chokri and O’Donoghue.

Sheeran’s lawyers are believed to be seeking confirmation from the court that the musician did not copy Chokri’s song, as well as compensation.

The singer’s lawsuit comes after legal documents filed in New York on Thursday claimed the Grammy-winning musician’s 2014 track Thinking Out Loud had been copied.

‘I have a soft spot for older women, they are easy to love’ admits Wazir Chacha

In the report, the ‘melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping’ of Gaye’s classic 1973 song were said to be used in Sheeran’s track.

The claim of the track being a ‘carbon copy’ has been brought by a company called Structured Asset Sales (SAS), which owns part of the copyright of Let’s Get It On.

SAS bought one third of the copyright after the death of Ed Townsend – who penned the track alongside Gaye – in 2003.  Sheeran was previously hit with a copyright suit in 2016 by Townsend’s family, who accused the star of ‘stealing’ musical elements for Thinking Out Loud.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Ed Sheeran for comment.

Surrender squats may be the best exercise to get a killer lower body in 15mins

We all love a toned lower body and according to Daily Mail incorporating surrender squats in your workouts can help you achieve that.

Begin by kneeling with both knees on the floor, then step into a kneel with one knee up, then follow with the other leg and stand up straight.

Now bend into a squat, keeping your legs at 90 degrees and hold for five seconds. Repeat five starting on the right leg, then on the left. This really gets the heart pumping, the legs and glutes working, as well as your core for balance.

‘Start your fitness journey now, be your own motivation’ tips Talia Oyando

WHAT TO EAT 

To strengthen and firm the muscles in your lower body, nutritionist Shona Wilkinson (shonawilkinson.com) recommends the following foods.

Brown rice is a great source of both protein and carbs — it will give your body the fuel it needs to sustain muscle mass. Always opt for brown over white, as it contains more fibre. Steak is a powerful source of protein — red meat isn’t bad for you, as long as you don’t eat too much. Serve with green vegetables such as broccoli for a healthy meal rich in fibre. If you’re vegetarian, black beans are also high in protein and fibre. Add to stews or casseroles — they taste delicious in a chilli.

‘She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine. S***, we only met two times.’

At the end of May, Pusha-T had stirred up a fire storm of rumors on his Drake diss track, The Story of Adidon, in which he alleged that Drake was hiding a son from the world.

The song also includes lyrics about the difficulties of being a single dad to a child who lives with his mother in a different country.

‘I’m out here on front lines just trying to make sure I see him sometimes. It’s breaking my spirit. “Single father” I hate when I hear it.’

‘I challenged my parents on every album, now I’m embarrassed to tell them I’m a co-parent.

‘Always promised a family unit. I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it,’ the Canadian recording artist rapped. Brussaux, a former porn star, was spotted with Drake in January 2017 following his split from Jennifer Lopez.

According to Daily Mail, Sophie claimed to be pregnant in May 2017, she claimed she was three-and-a-half months pregnant with Drake’s child and hired two major New York City attorneys to begin the proceedings to prove paternity and seek child support, TMZ reported at the time.

However, in May, a rep for Drake denied the child was his and asserted that the woman has a ‘very questionable background.’

The retired porn star released text messages between the two that reportedly shows Drake telling Sophie to have an abortion, although Drake’s rep says he cannot confirm the validity of the texts.

‘I can’t kill my baby simply to indulge you sorry,’ she allegedly responded. Drake purportedly asks her: ‘Do you know what you’re doing you think you’re going to get money?’She documented her pregnancy and has shared photos of her baby on her Instagram.

On her website, it claimed that: ‘Since her younger years she’s been travelling and studying abroad, which greatly influenced her art. She exhibited in cities like NYC, Milan, and London. Her style is a mix of surrealism and symbolism with influences of pop art.

Just hours before the album became available to stream and download, Drake had dropped a last minute bombshell by suggesting one of the tracks is, in fact, a previously unreleased song by Michael Jackson.

Wife and daughter hire hitmen to kill their dad over pension and tight rules

The wife and four daughters of an Indian policeman have been accused of hiring assassins to murder him for his £88,000 (Ksh10,635,320) pension.

Another reason for his killing was because he refused to let them wear trousers. The bloody corpse of Meharbaan Ali, a sub-inspector, was discovered dumped in a sewage canal in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, just 250 metres from the family home on Sunday.

According to Daily Mail, Police arrested Zahida Begum, 52, and her daughters Saba, 26, Zeenat, 22, Iram, 19, and Alia, 18, at their house in Shahjahanpur after the women confessed to hiring two contract killers to murder him.

After Ali’s body was found, an investigation was launched, with police saying that significant clues from close circuit cameras installed at the location helped them crack the case.

Daya Chand Sharma, Inspector at Sadar Bazaar police station, said the mother and daughters were upset with the strict restrictions Ali had imposed upon them, including banning them from wearing jeans.

He said: ‘Ever since the body of Ali was found, we suspected the involvement of family members, because the body was found just 250 metres from their house.

‘We took out the call detail records of all the family members and found that Ali’s wife, Zahida, was regularly calling a number.’

The police investigation established that the victim had arrived home at 10.45am, after leaving the police station at 10am on Saturday.

‘A massive investigation operation was launched and all the CCTV cameras were checked for the recordings. Important clues were found in the video recordings that helped us solving the case.

‘After that we confronted the women, who confessed to the crime.’

The women allegedly hired Tehseen and Qasim for £1,100. Half of the amount was paid from Ali’s salary that was kept in cash at home while the remainder was promised to be given after the ‘task’ was completed.

Police said Zahida was hoping to get £88,000 from the funds the dependents of policemen receive after their death.

They claim his daughters, who were unhappy with their father’s strict restrictions of not wearing jeans, connived in the crime in the hope one of them would secure a job replacing their father at the police station.

Additional superintendent of the city police, Dinesh Tripathi, said: ‘There were three benefits which the family would have got after Ali’s death.

‘First, one of his daughters would have got a job in his place in the department.’Second, his widow would have got the pension, which is half the salary.

‘Moreover, the family would have got the funds which dependents of policemen get on the demise of the latter.’

The contract killers, who police said were involved in many other serious crimes in nearby areas and were on the run, were arrested on Wednesday.

However, one of Meghan’s favourite dishes is Filipino-style chicken adobo, which contains the ingredient.

‘It’s so easy – combine garlic, soy (or Bragg Liquid Aminos), vinegar, maybe some lemon and let the chicken swim in that sauce until it falls off the bone in a Crock Pot,’ she said to Today.

According to Daily Mail, Meghan will be allowed to enjoy garlic in her meal when eating privately, however. Ahead of her Royal Wedding, pornstar Simon Rex revealed that she had dumped him because he had garlic breath when they kissed at the end of their date.

However, the Scary Movie actor also said that Meghan may have found out about his foray in the adult movie industry.

‘It’s possible that she found out afterwards. There’s so many questions I don’t know the answer to about why we never went on a second date.’

‘But I’m blaming it on the garlic noodles. To this day that’s like an ongoing joke — don’t order the ­garlic noodles that ruined my chances,’ he said.

The new Royal will also have to say goodbye to seafood now that Meghan has to abide by the many strict guidelines. Royal Butler Grant Harrold explained that this is a sensible choice.

‘We don’t want a member of the Royal family having a serious reaction to food poisoning, especially if she is on an overseas tour. As well as shellfish, it would also be quite appropriate for foods such as foie gras to be avoided,’ he said.

‘I was willing to sleep with my kidnapper to stay alive’ admits British model

British model Chloe Ayling has said she was willing to have sex with her kidnapper to stay alive during a kidnapping incident which many have blasted her for terming it as a publicity stunt.

The 20-year-old was lured to Milan by Lukasz Herba, 30, who promised her modelling work before drugging and kidnapping her. Herba was jailed for 16 years and nine months for abducting the British model and ordered to pay £6,000 in damages to Miss Ayling, earlier this month.

Speaking for the first time since her 30-year-old attacker was jailed in Italy, Chloe, now 21, told The Sun she is glad her ordeal was proven in court since she has been repeatedly accused of faking it.

According to Daily Mail, the damsel said that it’s a huge relief since her life had been put on hold.

‘It was six days of hell — and then I had to deal with all the disbelief once I got home. I feel happy now that everyone knows I was telling the truth.’

Miss Ayling, a mother-of-one from Coulsdon, South London, also bravely revealed she asked herself during her ordeal whether she would use sex to stay alive, eventually deciding if it came to it she would.

The model’s horrifying ordeal started in July 2017 when she arrived in Milan, after being lured there with the promise of modelling work.

But the photo shoot took a sinister turn when Miss Ayling was suddenly faced with a man with a syringe. She was then drugged with a horse tranquiliser called Ketamine and was taken to a remote house.

She said: ‘When I woke up I was so drugged. Slowly as I regained ­consciousness, I realised I was in the back of a car.I had no idea why they were ­taking me. Everything went through my head — are they going to rape me? Are they going to kill me?”

The men, led by Herba, said they were members of the Black Death group and were going to sell her on the dark web as a sex slave, but Chloe pleaded with them to keep her alive for her child’s sake.

Later, she was found inside a suitcase outside the British Consulate in Milan.

Italian police launched an investigation during which they discovered Chloe had been out shopping with her captor during the time she was being held.She was seen with Herba, a Polish man who lived in Birmingham.

Doubt was cast on Chloe’s story but she later revealed she was terrified of Herba who threatened her repeatedly and was doing as she was told.

Now fantasist Herba has been jailed, Miss Ayling revealed she had concocted a plan to stay alive.She told The Sun: ‘I thought I might have to sleep with him to survive.’My only move to get out of there alive was to get him to like me.

When he asked to kiss me I didn’t say no. I didn’t want to upset him. Instead I would say, “Maybe in the future.”‘I thought that if I gave him what he wanted that there would be no point in him releasing me.

‘I could see that he was happy about it so I continued to put it off.If he hadn’t reacted in that way, then maybe I would have gone through with it.”

Chloe was bewildered as to why she had become the main point of scrutiny, since Herba was a ‘crazy guy’ but his twisted lies were being spread.

Herba claimed it was Chloe who recruited him into the plot to make herself famous.  But Chloe has told of the things which were said to her at the farmhouse, about girls who have been captured by Black Death.

Herba told her women are used for sex and then ‘fed to tigers’.However, he developed feelings for the model and decided to let her go – meaning her plot for safety worked.

Herba later said: ‘I was in love and I was hoping that once her fame took off that she would repay me with feelings.’

Herba’s brother Michal, 37, who was extradited to Italy on Friday, will now face trial as an alleged accomplice.

The High Court ruled last month that there was enough evidence presented by the Italian authorities for Michal to be extradited and be put on trial.

Lawyers for Michael had claimed the Italian authorities had said he was ‘complicit’ with the kidnapping but had failed to show enough evidence to warrant his removal.

Lady Justice Sharp ruled the warrant was ‘adequate’ and outlined the allegations against him.

The body of British rapper Kenny Mukendi has been identified after DNA results were carried out on his already decomposed body found in Brazil.

Son to Beatrice and Ken Mukendi, the British rapper  had been missing since April 13  and his the body was discovered washed up on the shore on May 5, near Mirante do Rocandor, in the west zone of Rio de Janeiro.

According to investigators, the body was close to where he was said to have taken his life, but the result of the DNA test was only released yesterday. Identification of the body was delayed due to the advanced decomposition of the remains, police said.

Before his death, Mukendi is said to have deactivated his instagram page something which left his girlfriend worried about his safety

Confirmation that the corpse was that of the missing man was made using items submitted by the family, which included his razor, toothbrush, cap and underwear.

According to detectives at the missing persons department (DDPA), the rapper, who was also known as Kenny Vulcan, killed himself by throwing himself off a rock into the sea. He was said to have been depressed after leaving London.

He arrived in Brazil on 4 December with the hope of launching a music career in Rio and planned to start a new life, according to his 20-year-old Brazilian girlfriend, Renata Lima, who he had been living with for three months.

He disappeared on 13 April in the afternoon after taking an Uber from a recording studio to the tourist beauty spot. A credit card payment on his account registered the transaction.

Shortly after arriving at the location, he mysteriously deactivated all his social media accounts and apparently jumped of the rock into the sea.

Cops carried out extensive air and sea searches and his backpack containing his laptop, passport, bank cards, wallet, pen drives and headphones was found by surfers floating in off the coast and handed in.

The hunt was called off after two weeks, with DDPA chief Ellen Souto concluding the rapper had taken his ‘own life by throwing himself into the sea while suffering from depression’.

His family, however, challenged the conclusion and continued to hold out hope he could still be alive, but ‘for whatever reason… [didn’t] want to be found for now’.

At the time dad Kenny Mukendi said he did not believe his son would take his life and the family was ‘deeply disappointed with the result of the investigation by the Brazilian police’.

Relatives continued to search for the missing man and put out posters offering a reward of 1,000 reais (£200) for information about his whereabouts. They even heard from witnesses who claimed to have seen him.

However, Det Souto said: ‘This idea of taking his own life had already crossed (Kenny’s) mind in London, his girlfriend told us. His father knew this and feared that he would come alone to Brazil, where he could commit this unthinkable act.’

‘My midwife slapped me for being too noisy during delivery’ woman cries out

Child bearing is a process dreaded by most women,some go through it without any complications while some are left scarred for life.

A group of these mothers have spoken out online about the awful treatment they suffered at the hands of medical professionals when they entered the birthing suites.

According to Daily Mail, a new mum shared her sad experience on how a midwife slapped her for being too loud during child delivery on Kidspot. She said

“I had an easy start to the labour – the midwife’s were lovely, helpful and calm. Labour was going great, I was calm and happy,” she tells Kidspot.

But the serenity in the ward soon turned to horror when the shifts changed and a new midwife started.

‘I ran away from my responsibilities after our sixth child’ City man confesses during Maina Kageni’s morning show

“I was sitting in the shower on a chair with the gas machine when she came in and took the gas off me and tried to make me get up and walk to the bed. And that’s when the friction began,” the mother-of-three recalls about the birth of her son back in 2015.

“I would sort of moan through contractions, by this stage I wasn’t using the gas anymore, I was trying my own pain relief.

“When it came time to push I was on the bed. I told them I needed to push but she looked down and told me that I didn’t need to push and not to push, but I needed to, so I tried, it was horrible, so, so painful, not like my others.”

Considering Tracey has been through this twice before already – her maternal instinct quickly kicked in.

“I told her something was wrong and please check my cervix but she told me nothing was wrong and that I just didn’t need to push like I said I did. I begged her through pushes, to please check my cervix something was wrong – she still didn’t.”

It wasn’t until another midwife walked into the room and Tracey asked her to check her cervix – which was just as well as her cerix was lapped over baby’s head.

“He was coming but he couldn’t go any further, so she moved the lap and I began pushing again, grunting through the pain – keeping in mind I’ve had no pain relief except for the gas hours beforehand.”

This was when the unthinkable happened.

The original midwife, who had refused to listen to Tracey’s concerns, approached her in the most aggressive and inappropriate manner.

“She put her face against my face, and said ‘you’re being too noisy be quiet before you scare others’ and slapped me across the leg. It left a mark with a clear hand print – it wasn’t an ‘encouragement’ slap – it really hurt.”

Tracey’s experience made other women open up and here are a few experiences of what they went through

‘I had a face washer stuffed in my mouth to shut me up… It’s as vivid today as it was 34 years ago… Too bad the pethidine didn’t kick in… It would’ve helped a lot,’ one woman wrote on Facebook.

Another woman adds

‘I had a midwife that kept calling me a “princess” because I chose not to have a Vbac [vaginal birth],Turns out my scar tissue had thinned and we would have both likely died if I did. She made me feel horrible’.

Other women had been asked if they’d ‘always had a jelly belly’ when getting an ultrasound, told that things ‘would only get worse’ when they were 5 centimetres dilated and ‘yanked on their nipple’ to breastfeed at 3am.

One midwife in the comment thread spoke openly about why screaming the entire labour could actually prove to be problematic.

‘As a nurse that seen hundreds of births, screaming only exhausts you more and everyone’s ears around you,’ she said.

‘Breathing through it with some noises is fine, I’ve seen some hysterical women and it wasn’t until they calmed down and breathed through it that they could tolerate it more.

‘A midwife is trained to help you through the labour; how can she help when a person is screaming and hysterical?’

A man also jumped to the defence of the hundred or so women who had commented, saying being there for his daughter’s birth had given him clarity about how the experience should go.

‘I was there for my daughters birth. Her mother cried out and such so much she chose to go and have an epidural. But not once did they tell her to quieten down. Nope not one dared,’ he began.

‘If you feel you have to scream the house down to deal with it, rip off your other half’s hands with a vice like grip or tear apart a pillow with your teeth – do it, you are bringing new life into the world and that is a beautifully violent act and it is because of you.’

Indian woman accidentaly kills four by poisoning food meant to kill her husband and his family

An Indian woman is facing the death penalty after five people died when she allegedly poisoned food at a gathering in a bid to kill her husband and in-laws.

Pradnya Survase, 23, was arrested after mixing pesticide into dal that was served at a housewarming party attended by 120 people on June 18, police said.

Five guests – including four children – died after being served the poisoned dish at the party in Mahad village, in Raigad district, in the state of Maharashtra.

An indian dish

According to Hindustan Times the woman in question  had intended to kill her husband, her mother-in-law, two sisters-in-law as well as her mother-in-law’s sister and her husband.

Police said Survase claimed that since she was married two years ago, they had insulted her because of her dark complexion and criticised her cooking.

Survase, who is divorced from her first husband, believed the relatives had damaged her second marriage.

At the party, guests were served food that was prepared on site by a village maharaj (cook) between 2.30pm and 11.30pm.

Those who ate later in day began vomiting and complaining of stomach pain and around 88 people were hospitalised.

A jovial indian family

Four children, aged between seven and 13 died along with 53-year-old Gopinath Nakure. Two of them were related to Survase.

Vilash Thikrey, a 13-year-old who survived the poisoning said he remembered the dal tasting ‘bitter,’ according to the Times.

Senior police inspector Vishwajeet Kaingade said police determined that those who became ill had eaten between 4.30pm and 6pm and police discovered who had served the food then.

When everyone who served food during that period was questioned, Survase broken down and confessed to the crime, police said.

Kaingade said Survase took a powder that is used to kill snakes to the party because everyone she wanted dead was going to be there.

However, they ate before she could mix the poison into the food.

But when some of her intended victims’ children sat down to eat, she decided to mix the poison into a container of food, police said.

Forensic analysis of samples of food that was served at the party revealed pesticide was present and traces of the poison was also found near her relative’s house.

Survase was charged with murder, attempted murder and conspiracy under the Indian Penal Code because some of her victims included children as young as seven.

She faces the maximum punishment of the death penalty.

Easy and effective ways to effectively beat weekend blues ahead of reporting to work

Sunday’s are the best days for most Kenyans but with it comes weekend blues that make us wish that the weekend can last longer.

Thinking about going to work on Monday makes most people wish that Sundays would have extended hours but too bad that cannot happen even in our wildest imagination.

According to Daily Mail your Sunday does not have to be too gloomy and here a few ways to beat weekend blues

1. TALK IT OUT – EVEN TO YOURSELF 

Talking to yourself can be a very healthy way to debate, digest and process your thoughts and concerns. Once you have worked through the things that are on your mind it is often a healthy idea to then talk through your thoughts with someone who cares about you.

‘I slept with my principal and my teacher too after he caught us’confesses city girl

2. WIPE WORRIES AWAY 

Giving your home a good clean, wipe, mop and vacuum is a simple, accessible activity that allows your brain time to relax and think or exert some pent up stress.

As cleaning is often a solo activity, it affords you precious time to yourself, to collect and process thoughts. Plus, you’re killing two birds with one stone by doing housework, removing any stress and worry about ‘getting the cleaning done’.

3. GET CREATIVE 

Art and crafts can be a brilliant outlet for expressing emotions and relieving stress.

Whether it’s knitting in front of the TV, full on painting or sculpture, or simply doodling in a colouring book, these creative pursuits slow down time whilst we gently focus on using our hands to make something.

Repetitive actions, such as sewing or colouring can help to induce a relaxed state because they temporarily shut down the normally very active frontal lobes of the brain where decision making and planning take place.

4. KITCHEN THERAPY 

Preparing  dinner may seem more daunting than relaxing, but cooking can be very therapeutic. The planning and coordination required in cooking is positively distracting especially as you know there’s going to be something tasty at the end of it.

image-2018-06-24(26)(1)

Concentrating on tasks that require some precision, like cutting up vegetables and keeping pretty strict oven timings, is a great way of combating negative stress whilst giving us a sense of achievement.

5. SWITCH OFF  YOUR GADGETS

Our phones give us access to unlimited information, updates and data which can be incredible sources of entertainment and connection with others, but they’re also distracting and can be addictive.

6.GET OUTDOORS  

Weekends are the best times  to take gentle  strolls or more vigorous rambles for longer if you are feeling energetic. Walking outside gets you breathing in some fresh air which alongside getting your limbs moving is a great way of setting yourself up nicely for the week ahead.
