#EngTips: Preparation before Blood Donation

Hello, fellas! How was your day?

First of all, I would like to congratulate @realmadriden on their 11th @championsleague tittle.

Tonight, we’ll have #EngTips session about the preparation you should do before you donate your blood.

Let’s start!

  1. Check your schedule

You can donate your blood in a routine manner in every 3 months. For those that have never donate their blood, it’s easier because you can start tomorrow! After each donor, you must refrain from doing heavy activities at least for the next 24 hours. So, plan your schedule before you donate your blood.

  1. Maintain a good diet

It is obvious that you will lose a considerable amount of blood after every donation. To minimize the effect of blood loss, you need to eat healthy food before a blood donation. It is advisable to eat iron rich foods such as red meat, fish, and all kinds of beans. You must avoid bad foods such as hamburger, fries, and ice creams before donation. In fact, avoid bad foods ever.

  1. Get a good night’s sleep

Try to sleep before 10 PM the night before donation. It will keep you from the dizziness from blood loss.

  1. Have a breakfast

This is simple yet important. A good breakfast with iron rich foods will give you energy.

  1. External preparation

You should not forget to bring your donor card (if you have any). You should also wear clothes with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.

That’s all, fellas. I hope this session is useful for you. I personally encourage you to be a regular blood donor because it’s not only good for you but also for other people in need.

I end tonight’s session. Thank you for your attention. Good night.
