As a car lover, you have to check your car’s battery to avoid failing you when running errands or doing your job. A fully functioning battery equals fun driving. Most of the time, your battery might still be fairly new but will still have you questioning its functionality as it does not retain its power. Here are the reasons that cause your car battery to fail.
When the charging system is not working correctly, your battery can drain; even when driving almost all the time, your car battery power plays music and other systems from the alternator. This practice can quickly drain your car faster, mainly because your vehicle has a charging problem.
Excess short Drives
Your battery is meant to drain before you use it. When you choose short drives, this is because the battery puts more power, especially when starting the car, and of course, with short drives, you shut off your alternator before it fully charges it, leading to the battery dying and not being long-lasting.
Once a battery is old, it equates to being weak; thus, not being able to hold for a full charge of an old battery would make starting your car difficult. It would be best if you replaced your battery when it has lasted like four years to avoid it dying on you when driving.
This is one as a car owner you are responsible for. Remember those few times you leave your headlights on, forget to close your boot, or forget internal lights on for long hours, which mainly results in your battery draining, and when you want to restart your car, it doesn’t restart.
When it’s scorching, like over 100 degrees, it can lead your car lead Sulphate crystals to build up.
Hot weather hinders chemicals inside car batteries as they make it hard for the battery to hold a charge and produce enough power.
Corroded Battery Cables
Check your battery cables; for signs of corrosion, buy new ones as with these corroded ones they always fall off the battery while driving for the dirty ones clean them using a cloth and check for loose ones they always make it hard for the engine to start as they hinder the transfer the electrical current correctly.
Ensure to replace the battery after four years of service and change the cables when corroded. And as a car owner, you have to be responsible. Don’t leave headlights and internal car lights on to void draining your car battery.
Ways to controll your anger
Anger control is important for helping you avoid saying or doing something you may regret. Before anger escalates, you can use specific strategies for controlling anger.
Go for a walk
Taking a walk can help calm your nerves and reduce anger. Go for a walk, ride your bike, or hit a few golf balls. Anything that gets your limbs pumping is good for your mind and body.
Slip into a quiet room, close your eyes, and practice visualizing yourself in a relaxing scene. Focus on details in the imaginary scene: What color is the water? How tall are the mountains? What do the chirping birds sound like? This practice can help you find calm amidst anger.
When you’re steamed, you may be tempted to let the angry words fly, but you’re more likely to do harm than good. Pretend your lips are glued shut, just like you did as a kid. This moment without speaking will give you time to collect your thoughts.
Imagine forgiving them
Finding the courage to forgive someone who has wronged you takes a lot of emotional skill. If you can’t go that far, you can at least pretend that you’re forgiving them, and you’ll feel your anger slip away.
Home remedies to relieve menstrual cramps
Cramps affect many people before and during their period. While some people only experience mild cramps, others aren’t quite as lucky. In some cases, the pain from period cramps can be extreme and make a serious dent in your daily life.
If period pain is cramping your style every month, there are steps you can take to gain back control.
Here are proven home remedies that may ease your discomfort, and help you get back on track with your busy life.
1. Drink more water
Bloating can cause discomfort and make menstrual cramps worse. Drinking water can reduce bloating during your period and alleviate some of the pain it causes.
Also, drinking hot water can increase blood flow throughout your body and relax your muscles. This can lessen cramps caused by uterine contractions.
2. Enjoy herbal teas
Herbal teas have anti-inflammatory properties and antispasmodic compounds that can reduce the muscle spasms in the uterus that cause cramping.
Drinking chamomile, fennel, or ginger tea is an easy, natural way to relieve menstrual cramps. Plus, herbal teas can have other benefits like stress relief and helping with insomnia.
3. Soak in a tub.
Soaking in a warm bathtub is another way to surround your pelvic muscles with the warmth they need to relax.
You can enhance the pain-relieving power of a good soak by adding a few drops of essential oils — like lavender, sage, or rose — to your bathwater.
4. Try dietary supplements
Vitamin D can help your body absorb calcium and reduce inflammation.
Other supplements, including omega-3, vitamin E, and magnesium, can help reduce inflammation and might even make your periods less painful.
For best results, take supplements every day, not just during your period. Also, because some supplements interact with medications, be sure to ask your doctor before taking anything new.
5. Reach for decaf
Caffeine causes your blood vessels to narrow. This can constrict your uterus, making cramps more painful.
If you need your coffee fixed, switch to decaf during your period. If you rely on caffeine to beat the afternoon slump, eat a snack high in protein or take a quick 10-minute walk to boost your energy.
6. Use a heat patch
Using a heated patch or wrap on your abdomen can help relax the muscles of your uterus. It’s these muscles that cause period cramps.
Heat can also boost circulation in your abdomen, which can reduce pain.
If you’re in pain, exercise might be the last thing on your mind. But even gentle exercise releases endorphins that make you feel happy, reduce pain and relax your muscles.
Fifteen minutes of yoga, light stretching, or walking might be all you need to feel better.
8. Reduce stress
Stress may make cramps worse. Use stress-relief techniques like meditation, deep breathing, yoga, or your own favorite way to relieve stress.
If you’re not sure how to relieve stress, try guided imagery. Simply close your eyes, take a deep breath and imagine a calm, safe place that’s significant to you.
Stay focused on this space for at least a few minutes while you take slow, deep breaths.
9. Massage therapy
Massages may reduce uterine spasms by relaxing the uterus. In order to most effectively manage period cramps, massage therapy should focus on the abdominal area.
But a full body massage that reduces your overall stress may also help to relieve menstrual cramps.
10. Eat anti-inflammatory foods
Some foods can offer natural relief for cramps and they taste great. Anti-inflammatory foods can help promote blood flow and relax your uterus.
Try eating berries, tomatoes, pineapples, and spices like turmeric, ginger, or garlic. Leafy green vegetables, almonds, walnuts, and fatty fish, like salmon, can also help reduce inflammation.
