How to have clean water at home

In a world where over 10,000 people die every year just drinking water. We have an urgent need for access to clean water in every home. While higher authorities might be doing their best to provide us with clean and safe drinking water, we too have a responsibility. We need to ensure that our homes and workplaces have a pure, safe and clean water.

In an emergency situation where regular water service is interrupted – like a hurricane, flood, or water pipe breakage – local authorities recommend using bottled water, boiled water, or disinfected water until regular water service is restored. However, boiling or disinfection will not destroy contaminants, such as heavy metals, salts, and other chemicals. 

Most people trust an RO Filter or an RO UV Water Purifier for their drinking water needs, but there are other alternative methods that you can try. In Mondosol learn some of the most effective methods on how to have clean water at home:

1. Boiling to have clean water at home

The simplest method to purify water is to boil it for a good amount of time. High temperatures cause the bacteria and virus to dissipate, removing all impurities from the water. In doing so, chemical additions cease to exist in the water as well. However, the dead micro-organisms and impurities settle at the bottom of the water, and boiling does not help eliminate all the impurities. You must strain the water through a microporous sieve to completely get rid of the impurities.

2. Water Purifier

An electric water purifier is the most trusted form of water purification that can be found in most houses today. A water purifier uses a multi-stage process that involves UV and UF filtration, carbon block, and modern water filtration technology that eliminates a majority of the chemicals and impurities making it the purest drinking water.

3. Reverse Osmosis

An RO Purifier proves to be one of the best methods of purifying water. Reverse Osmosis forces water through a semipermeable membrane and removes contaminants. The TDS Controller and Mineraliser Technology like the one found in an A. O. Smith RO UV Water Purifier help retain the necessary nutrients while doing away with harmful impurities.

4. Water Chlorination

This is an older technique used usually during an emergency, wherein a mild bleach with approximately 5% chlorine is added to the water. This mixture works as an oxidant and quickly kills microorganisms, making water safe for consumption.

5. Distillation

Distillation water purification

Distillation is a water purification process that involves collecting the condensed water after evaporation, which ensures that water is free of contaminants. However, this isn’t as effective as an RO filter because it is time-consuming and eliminates minerals as well.

6. Iodine Addition

Iodine is a red chemical that is easily available as a tablet or a liquid. It is extremely powerful as it kills bacteria and viruses. However, it adds an unpleasant taste and can be fatal if taken in high doses. Therefore, it should only be used if you don’t have access to a better method of purification like an electric water purifier.

7. Solar Purification

Solar Purification to kill bacteria and viruses present in the water

An alternative to the UV filtration is solar purification which involves treating water with the ultraviolet radiation of the sun. The process involves filling a plastic bottle with water, shaking it to activate the oxygen and leaving it horizontally in the sunlight. This effectively kills bacteria and viruses present in the water, making it safe for consumption.

8. Clay Vessel Filtration

Clay Vessel Filtration to clean water in rural regions

Way before people had access to an RO or UV Purifier, they used clay pots which purified muddy water, by blocking out the mud and allowing pure, potable water to pass through. This method is still used in some rural regions.

9. UV Radiation

Water is exposed to a UV Light that kills microorganisms, thereby preventing it from breeding further. But if not coupled with an RO Filter, UV Radiation alone cannot remove impurities and heavy metals.

10. Desalination

What to learn everyday

Here are the skills to master today in 2021, along with free online courses that can help you build upon them:

1. Futuristic thinking

Futurist thinking is the ability to predict events and trends, and how they might impact your industry and professional development.

While this is a skill that remarkably few people have developed, it’s important to note that futuristic thinking doesn’t require a Ph.D. At the very least, it’s about staying abreast of potential changes and thinking outside the box.

Recommended free courseReady, Set, Future! Introduction to Futures Thinking,
Highlights: Build your understanding of what futurist thinking is, how to collect and analyze signals of change, and identify historical shifts in the past to predict new changes in the future.

(Another course I highly recommend is The Future After Covid, which has received great reviews. Please note that it does charge a $495 fee.)

2. Courageous leadership

Even if you’re not in a managerial role, developing leadership skills has never been more important. In fact, studies show that those with such skills are more likely to get a raise, promoted, or selected to take on additional responsibilities.

It’s important to note that leadership isn’t just about managing a team. It’s also about having the courage to do things like:

  • Push past your comfort zone to take on new roles that will expand your experience.
  • Be honest; tell people what they should hear, not what they want to hear.
  • Take action when it’s needed and cut losses when they need to be cut.

Recommended free courseWhat Great Leaders Do
Cost: Free
Highlights: In this lecture that parallels his book, “Good Boss, Bad Boss,” Stanford professor Bob Sutton unpacks the best habits of beloved and effective managers, and details the worst practices of those who fail to lead.

 3. Emotional intelligence

With the emergence of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the ability to recognize, understand and manage not just your own emotions, but also those of others, has become one of the top skills employers look for.

Strong emotional intelligence skills allow us to understand and interact with our feelings in a way that helps us build quality relationships and make decisions effectively.

Recommended free courseDevelop Your Emotional Intelligence
Highlights: Taking a single online course won’t make you an EQ whiz overnight; it takes patience, practice and commitment. But this introductory program, which explores the components of emotional intelligence and how it can be applied at work, is a great place to start.

4. Interpersonal communication

In a world where communication is mostly taking place on digital platforms such as Slack or Zoom, knowing how to speak clearly and interact with others is key to maintaining interpersonal relationships, successful problem-solving and managing conversations.

Keep in mind that this skill isn’t just about what you say or type to one another, but it’s also about active listening and being attuned to feelings.

Recommended free courseImproving Communication Skills
Highlights: Taught by award-winning Wharton professor Maurice Schweitzer, you’ll build on key communication skills such as how to develop trust, be persuasive, ask thoughtful questions, engage in active listening, and choose the right medium (e.g., videoconferences, phone calls, or emails) for your messages.

5. Cognitive flexibility

According to a report from the World Economic Forum that looked at the future of jobs across nine different industries in 15 of the world’s largest economies, employers will soon be placing more emphasis on cognitive abilities like creativity and adaptability.

Those with cognitive flexibility skills are energized by change and adapt quickly and readily to the unknown. They enjoy experimenting with new things and are able to consider multiple concepts simultaneously.

Recommended free courseIntroduction to Cognitive Psychology: An Experimental Science
Highlights: Knowledge cannot be fully digested if the information is presented out of context. The exercises in this course will not only teach you how to understand complex concepts, but also how to apply them in different settings.

Scott Steinberg is a futurist, keynote speaker on business trends, and bestselling author of “Fast >> Forward,”“Think Like a Futurist,”“Make Change Work for You” and “Becoming Essential.” He is also an award-winning strategic consultant and has been named by Fortune magazine as a leading expert on innovation.

Correction: This article has been updated to show that the Future After Covid course charges a $495 fee.

What to eat everyday for health and wealth

Are you ready to learn what I eat every day to improve your health and energy?

If you’ve ever tried to do anything productive with low energy, you will know that it’s a constant struggle.

This is why I make my health a top priority. Research suggests that regular exercise and a healthy diet can lead to higher levels of productivity, happiness, and motivation.

When you have your health, you have everything. In the words of Jim Rohn, “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

Everyone can eat following this idea.

The nutritional pyramid is a graph that shows the food groups and the quantities needed for our daily needs of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins and minerals for a healthy and balanced diet.

The foods at the base of the pyramid are those to be consumed in larger quantities, while the quantity must be decreased as you go up. Even if water is not indicated in the pyramid, it is the fundamental basis of life and you must drink at least 2 liters of it a day.

First level: BREAD / CEREALS / RICE / PASTA
They provide carbohydrates and fiber. You need to ingest 7/12 portions * per day.

Second level: VEGETABLES
They provide carbohydrates, low biological level proteins and fibers. You have to ingest 5 or 6 portions * per day.

Third level: FRUIT
They provide carbohydrates and fiber. It is necessary to ingest 3 or 4 servings * a day and sugary fruit juices and canned fruit must be avoided.

Fourth level: MILK AND DERIVATIVES
They provide calcium, high biological value proteins and fats. Eat 2 or 3 servings * per day.

Fifth level: MEAT / FISH / LEGUMES / EGGS
They provide high biological value proteins (low value legumes), fats and iron, vitamin B12, iodine and zinc. 2 or 3 portions * per day should be taken.

Sixth level: OILS / FATS (butter, dried fruit …)
They bring calories and fat. Dried fruit also provides proteins, some vitamins and minerals. 1 or no serving * should be taken per day.

Seventh level: SUGAR / HONEY / PROCESSED FOODS
They bring a lot of calories. Ingest them a few times a week.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture that promotes overeating. An addiction to fast food, coupled with a lack of interest in physical activity has given rise to an epidemic of obese and unhappy people. Not surprisingly, this unhealthy way of life leads to lower levels of energy, productivity and an inability to achieve one’s goals. I believe that all of us have a responsibility to ourselves to take care of our bodies.

Before I share with you what I eat in a day, I first want to mention that I do intermittent fasting every single day. This means that I restrict food intake for 12-16 hours. There are so many incredible benefits to doing this, one of which is weight loss. A 2018 study found that following the 16:8 diet where dieters fasted for 16 hours and ate regular meals for 8 hours helped obese participants consume 350 fewer calories and lose 3% of their body weight over 12 weeks.

Digestion is one of my biggest problem.

I have problems to digest, I always did since I was little. My stomach produce too much acid and gas taking forever to digest. Every year, I go into a liquid diet with shakes that are fast to digest and allow the body to use its stored energy. I also focus on things like detoxing and fat burning. I consume more liquid nutrition that doesn’t have a lot of fiber that my body has to digest. One of the benefits of not putting so much fiber in your body right away is that you can extend your body’s ability to be in a detox mode.

I start my days with water, vitamins and cereals.

Once I open up the eyes in the morning I drink water, healthy tea (green) or juices with some lemon and ginger. I make sure to eat cereals and some vitamins in the food I eat like fruits or supplements. I actually focused on listening self positive affirmation that you can listen in my last course or on my YouTube channel, which I encourage you to check out.

I like to do a walk everyday.

If I’m staying inside or going outside, I always make sure to have a good walk. This ensures that my body is in movement. I have the Samsung Health app on my phone (or you can use another app) to track my steps that will give me the motivation that I need.

After my workout, I like to refuel my body. I’ll eat some cereal bars or make a shake in my Sports Bottle and Shaker with some mixed fruits and water. I avoid dairy altogether. I love to make salads with some sort of protein. My salads always have a variety of different greens. Instead of dressings, I like to put salt and olive oil in my salad. Consuming these foods ensure that I feel energized throughout my entire day.

This is what I eat everyday.

Anything that you want to achieve in life will require a tremendous amount of energy. This is why you master your health. Find what works best for you and commit to taking care of your mind, body, and soul. Your body is one of the greatest gifts that you’ve been given. Take amazing care of it so that you can do more, be more and give more. How will you take better care of your health this week?
