I think we would all agree that being a mom or a dad can be incredibly stressful. Mostly, you’ll be juggling three different roles in life at once. You will be aiming to succeed at work and elevate your career. At the same time, you want to make sure that your kids grow up that the right way. You need to be there when they need you and make sure they feel loved. On top of that, you need to consider your own private life too. Don’t forget you’re not just a mom, or a wife, or a working gal, you’re a woman. You need to have some time to spend on yourself to be happy. So, I guess the question here is can moms really have it all? The answer, I think you’ll find, is yes. But, this will only work if you are ready to deal with stress and eliminate it from your life.

Stress comes in many shapes and forms I find. There are also lots of different causes. If your kid fails a class in school, you’re going to be stressed. Was it your fault? Could you have helped him out more with that homework? A stressful workday could cause stress. Was your boss fair when they gave you that assignment with such a short deadline? What if you can’t get it done in time? You can even get stressed about trying to relax? I must book that holiday, I need to make sure that I raise enough money to go to…
You’ve made it out of your teen years and are looking forward to life as an adult. But then plenty of us still suffer from acne. How is that even fair? You think you’d have left that behind as a teenager, but that isn’t always the case. Though it is annoying and awkward, many people suffer from adult acne. So if you are looking for ways to deal with it, you’re in the right place. Read on, and your skin will be looking better in no time.

How do you go to work every day? Do you use your car or ride in public transportation? If you are living in the Metro, you'll probably experience the hassle of traffic every day. You must be one of the many people who hates traffic right? I feel you. Bad traffic jam is a typical site in the cities particularly in places where the shopping malls exist. 

Each year, we experience billions of losses to our economy due to traffic congestions, especially in Metro Manila. And the losses could have been used to build infrastructures like hospitals, school buildings perhaps we could have bought different types of equipment for the betterment of the Filipino lives. But why do we have traffic in the first place? What could be the causes of this situation in which our streets are completely congested? 

As the population increases, there will be more commuters and cars in the streets. Excessive numbers of vehicles are the primary factors that cause traffic congestions. Typical public transportation used by passengers are buses and jeepneys who occupies more road spaces that worsen the traffic. Some car owners take their cars even in just a short distance of travel just to show they have one. So what can you expect from these? Traffic jams can affect the productivity of an employee who commutes because they tend to arrive late at work that and gives them stress. You'll end up losing your personal time because of the long-time travel on the road. 
It’s never easy coping with change. But the changes that completely change your life are the ones that are the hardest to come to terms with. Accidents and ill health can be devastating physically and emotionally. How you manage your life after these changes could make a significant difference to how well you cope.

Living with a disability, even a temporary one, can take a lot of adjustment. You will probably need a lot of support and help at first. After years of independence, this might be the one change that knocks you the most. Some of us struggle to ask for help. Don’t let your pride get in the way. Loved ones and friends will be desperate to do something to make life easier for you. It will be beneficial to all of you to accept.

There may be a lot of physical discomfort and pain to deal with. There are many ways to help you cope with pain. You can borrow or buy a TENS machine, visit a special therapist, or take medication. Many people that live with chronic pain tend to need a few different approaches in combination to make it tolerable. The choices you make may have other repercussions, so it’s worth researching your options.

While your body may have gone through some tough changes, don’t neglect your mental or emotional health. You’re allowed to feel angry and sad about such enormous changes in life. You may feel like you need to do something about it to help you get to grips with what has occurred. This is natural. Sometimes it’s worth speaking to a disability attorney who can help you with your next course of action.


The Philippines has always been lagging in a lot of things. Fashion, infrastructure, and medicinal breakthrough. It is the main reason why a lot of rich people go abroad to have their pains and illness taken cared of. We don’t have the latest technology nor do we have an advanced know-how on what works and what doesn’t.

Dr. Ronald Samaniego realized this predicament and decided after over a decade of gaining experience and knowledge in Seattle that the Philippines is where he wants to practice what he has mastered when it comes to physical therapy. He is a doctor of physical therapy who has over ten years of experience. He also went through one of the most painful things that can happen to your muscle which is an ACL and so he knows what it is like to be on the other side of the fence.

This is why Active Life Chicago PT was put up. Dr. Ronald Samaniego believes that even when you are going through physical therapy, one can maintain an active lifestyle. He encourages movement and not just letting your muscles rot. He also believes that with the right program, almost anyone can recover from pain and bring back muscles that may have atrophied.
Colgate-Palmolive Philippines celebrates 90 years of operations in the country, providing generations of Filipinos with quality brands for oral care, personal care and home care such as Colgate, Palmolive, Tender Care, Gard, Axion, and Ajax.

The Palmolive Company Philippines was established in 1926 with an office in the Binondo district of Manila with just five employees. Products sold during those days included Pompeia cosmetics, Octagon laundry powder, and Crystal White Laundry bar.

It merged with Peet Brothers the following year and with Colgate Company in 1928. Popular products such as Colgate Ribbon Dental cream and Cashmere Bouquet toiletries were added to the product range along with Palmolive soaps, pushing accelerated growth for the next few years. Products at that time were delivered to stores by carabao or horse-drawn carts.

In 1941, during World War II, invading soldiers sealed the office and looted the warehouse. Loyal employees were instructed by their imprisoned manager to preserve company records. Two employees managed to enter the office but couldn't escape with the ledgers.

They ended up manually copying all entries, word for word, for over a week. With records intact, the company was able to collect all receivables from insurance after the war and resume business.

Soon after, Ajax powder cleanser was introduced to the market and, in 1949. The company was incorporated as Colgate-Palmolive Philippines, Inc.

While the company may have begun by importing products from the US, growing demand for its brands prompted it to inaugurate a manufacturing plant in Makati in 1951 and to establish a provincial warehouse in Cebu in 1959.

In the past, the medicine is used to be one of the most popular career paths for making money. If you watch medical dramas, you could be persuaded into thinking this is still true. After all, Derek Shepherd, world famous neurosurgeon makes millions a year. But that’s not how things work in reality.  If you work in medicine, in fact, you’ll typically be operating in the public sector. Here, income levels are controlled, and even top doctors don’t make more than the average physician. You only have one option if you want to be rolling in money working in the medical field. You have to set up your practice. So, where do we begin with this idea?

Students, mothers and even working women are now looking for alternatives to wearing clothes that are fashionable yet affordable. Now that commodity prices are rapidly increasing we need to be wise. But being thrifty doesn't mean you don't need to be in "trend" or look good with your clothes. Thankfully, most of us can now access the internet, and there is a retail company that sells products online. 

StyleWe is an online platform that features works of independent designers. They sell trendy clothing pieces in different styles, colors, and sizes. Aside from apparels, they also offer bags and other accessories. I have been searching for a dress I could wear for the coming holidays, and the two piece dresses caught my attention while browsing their page.

Most of us think that being young means that we're not prone to sickness and we have much stronger stamina and health than the elders. But because we are care-free and have much energy to do whatever we want to do, we end up having an unhealthy lifestyle. Smoking, drinking, lack of sleep, junk foods and other factors can have massive effects on our health. Blood clot and high blood cholesterol can be associated with a similar factor: Excess Sitting.

Just like our clothes, hairstyle, and possessions, our homes are an extension of our very selves. They are a way we express our identity and what matters to us most. For example, if you walk into the home of a full-time artist, you will probably be able to tell that they live there simply by looking around. On the same note, if you walk into the home of a successful business person, you should be able to see the outpourings of their success from the minute you get through the door. But making a house a home isn't just about showing off your material possessions. It's about investing in items that make a difference to you, and the way you and your family live in your home. It's also about doing things together that are unique to the way your family operates - things you wouldn't be able to do anywhere else. After all, a house is just an empty shell. It doesn't matter whether it's a brand new multi-million dollar apartment or an old converted barn house. It's still up to you and you alone to inject personality into it, so you feel as though it's yours. After all, how many times have you sat in a hotel room and despite the luxury, just felt a little....well, weird? It's unusual to bed down somewhere for the evening and not have any home comforts around. Humans are creatures inherently designed to build a 'nest' for themselves and their children. It is this deep-rooted instinct that could be the reason behind our desire to actually make our houses our homes.

Winter is a tough time of year for everyone, let alone people who are susceptible to illness. We all have a weaker part of our body – maybe you tend to roll your ankle when you’re out running, or you get ear infections easily. But there are other people who suffer badly with their chests, and winter is a particularly hard time for that. The cold air can affect people badly and there are also a lot of colds going round. Here are some common winter ailments and conditions that can get worse in the winter, and some ways you can prevent them getting worse to protect your chest all year round.

A little person's bedroom is their haven, their safe place that they can dream in and let their imagination go wild. You only need a little bit of money to truly make your child's bedroom dream come to life. You don't need to spend the earth on fancy furniture either. A child will appreciate something colorful, and you'll like something that keeps the toys hidden away at the end of the day.


Whether you’ve just moved house, or simply a fancy a change, a little renovation is always good for freshening your home. Large renovation projects can be a daunting prospect. When you have a whole house full of rooms to design and decorate, it can be hard to know where to start. Even so, getting your home perfect is worth the stress. Staying calm and developing a plan can be a great help in easing the stress. Here are some stress-free trips on how to tackle your massive renovation project.


When it comes to revamping your home, the bathroom is often left until last. Many people push it aside, as guests will rarely see it. It is much easier to ignore a room that a guest will often spend about five minutes in, as opposed to the place where they’ll spend most of their visit. But your bathroom needs a little TLC every now and again too. It should be a space that you can enjoy yourself. So, express yourself through your bathroom design. Here are a few ways to bring your bathroom design up to date.


Our homes are so important to us. They’re a place we can relax and recharge ready for whatever life brings, and allow us to feel comfortable and safe. And so to keep them well protected, home security should be an issue that every family considers carefully. Along with the devastation of having possessions that you have worked so hard for stolen, burglaries are also a massive invasion of privacy and can leave lasting panic and anxiety in its wake.

CCTV, sturdy locks and a burglar alarm are the most important defenses against thieves. To find the products that are best for you, you could research how to choose a home security system. However, there are a couple of other things you can do too which will make your property much less appealing to burglars. Check out these clever tricks

Use an Automatic Curtain Rail
One of the things thieves will look for when scoping out a house to burgle is whether it looks like anyone is home. While many are opportunistic and will simply hop through an open window if it seems like no-one is in, others will spend time checking out the property first. If you’re not home, and your curtains are left either open or closed that will be a big clue for them. Timed curtain rails are one solution to this problem. They can be either set on a timer or automatically open or close depending on the light levels.
