Facing the Challenge of PMS

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) — that is a challenge that a number of women go through, month after month. One article points out that the Mayo Clinic “estimates about 75 percent of women get at least some form of PMS.” WebMD also cites that in 30 percent to 40 percent of cases of PMS, “symptoms are so severe that they interfere with normal day-to-day functioning.”

Some common PMS Symptoms include: moodiness, depression, abdominal cramping, bloating, food cravings, headaches, muscle aches, breast tenderness, fatigue as well as acne. With all these range of symptoms, women would be happy to have something that will help alleviate these or even just minimize them, at least.

It is good news then when products like ATC Evening Primrose offer something that women who undergo PMS can find beneficial. ATC Evening Primrose offers to to relieve PMS including breast tenderness that also comes with the menstrual cycle. ATC Evening Primrose can also help alleviate hot flashes caused by menopause as well as reduces symptoms of eczema and dermatitis.

It’s just about the size of a closed fist really but this specialized muscle  works non-stop day and night. And so thanks to the heart, we wake up each day, ready to live a new, purposeful chapter of our lives.

The heart regularly and continuously contracts, pumping blood to the body and the lungs. And so thanks to the heart, oxygen and nutrients are supplied to our bodies. The heart then is unmistakably a vital organ in our body. We must know then how to take care of our heart for doing so means we are also taking care of our life.

Proper diet, exercise, sufficient rest – we need them all to take care of our heart.

Keeping Your Child Safe in Cyberworld

While we are glad with all the information and resources we are now able to access through the internet, we can not also deny the fact that those with criminal intent are also using the internet to target potential victims. Harmful material for young kids are also proliferating the net and can somehow land on these kids’ email addresses. But this bleak scenario need not mean that parents and family members can only stand helpless along the way. Parents and family members can and should do something about protecting the kids from any harm that may reach them even online.

All of us who love kids then (whether they are our very own or our neighbors) can be glad that there are services that can help us all care and watch over our kids’ safety online.

Going Positive: Crowdsource the BLISS of a #LiveFreePH

Reading the news can be quite disheartening at times. Sometimes, you feel like all that’s being reported are just the “bad things” going around, as if there are no positive developments happening. And so we are glad when there are initiatives to address our nation as well as our family and personal concerns. Read on then about “positive initiatives” for a change 🙂 

How do you feel about the future? Is your family doing okay? Are the people around you hopeful or gloomy? With the Brighter Life Index: Social Sentiment or BLISS, Sun Life will show how optimism, prosperity, and the bayanihan spirit can produce a positive ripple from ourselves to our loved ones and to the community where we live.

BLISS is a Facebook application that aims to get the pulse of Filipinos about their current financial situation as well as their outlook for the future.

“BLISS gives us the canvas to paint our #LiveFreePH campaign. Through crowdsourcing, we seek the brightest spots while also determining the areas that are in need of a bit more sunshine,” explained Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa. “Together with the Sun Life Foundation, we will help turn dim prospects to bright opportunities.”

How BLISS happens

Harnessing the power of crowdsourcing, BLISS gathers insights directly from consumers by asking Filipinos about their current state and their outlook for the future. Responses will be collected primarily via Facebook.

The results will be embodied by a map of the Philippines, where positive sentiments will be represented by sunny weather, while negative ones will be indicated by thunderstorms. This will be updated real time, with different aggregations available for viewing.

BLISS will also radiate warmth in real life, as the Sun Life Foundation pledges to match survey responses with a donation to help localities with bleak outlooks, as indicated by the stormy icons in the results map. Inspired by the practice of bayanihan (communal work), the initiative translates insight to action, via the information that will be shared by online users.

“Sun Life Foundation believes in action that is powered by insight, and we’re bringing that to the social media platform through BLISS,” said Sun Life Foundation Executive Director Anne Zillah Flores. “We’re taking it further by actually responding to the gaps that will be determined. We will fund projects to help communities with bleak prospects so they can adopt a brighter outlook.”

BLISS to #LiveFreePH

From the present to the future, BLISS narrates the changing story of Filipinos from multiple points of view: self, family, and community. Income, health, and work-life balance are identified as personal concerns; food, nutrition and financial security comprise the familial territory; while access to quality education, healthcare, and livelihood opportunities are the societal factors that impact the nation as a whole. When addressed properly, these concerns can become the building blocks of a nationwide movement towards financial independence.

“From BLISS, we lay down the blueprint of #LiveFreePH – to practice foresight by being conscious of our needs while sharing the benefits of living the brighter life,” Lopa said. “We hope that by working together towards financial freedom, we can create a story of a prosperous and optimistic nation, because in our journey to financial freedom, we can go far if we go together.”
