Photos from SheiFunmi’s #GetNaked HIV/AIDS awarness campaign

“This project applies to everybody because we are not focusing on HIV/AIDS awareness alone. One main aim of #GetNaked is to tell it all, breaking down the façade. Nothing is black and white; there are always different shades. Baring it all as youths, talking about sensitive issues in our society that affect our lives and us in general.” Founder, SheiFunmi dished about the project.

The #GetNaked Campaign is a global awareness campaign which will take place “in different cities, in different countries” with the first leg of the global tour kicking off in Nigeria.

Featured in the #GetNaked campaign preview photos are rapper Slim T, radio personality Kore Brown, comedian Owen Gee, 2013 Elite Model Look Winner Nneoma Anosike and Writer Kecy Anosike.

HANDBOOK 2012

 

So I just got this in the mail from my dad. He hardly forwards mails but when he does, it’s worth reading through. This was a first in 2012 and sure glad to have read it and now sharing it with you. Enjoy

Health

1. Drink plenty of water. 2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar. 3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants. 4. Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy. 5. Make time to pray. 6. Play safe or Zip Up. 7. Read more books than you did in 2011. 8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. 9. Sleep for 7 hours. 10. Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

Personality

11. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 12. Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment. 13. Don’t overdo it. Keep your limits. 14. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 15. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip. 16. Dream more while you are awake. 17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 18. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with His/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness. 19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Do not hate others. 20. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present. 21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you. 22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. 23. Smile and laugh more. 24. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree….

Society

25. Call your family often. 26. Each day give something good to others. 27. Forgive everyone for everything. 28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6. 29. Try to make at least three people smile each day. 30. What other people think of you is none of your business. 31. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

Life

32. Do the right thing! 33. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful. 34. GOD heals everything. 35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change… 36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 37. The best is yet to come.. 38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it. 39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
