5 Ways To Enhance Family Wellness During Rainy Days


5 Ways To Enhance Family Wellness During Rainy Days

LAC, the leading health and wellness supplement retailer in the Philippines, shares tips and tricks to keep your family happy, dry, and healthy this upcoming rainy season.

 

As the weather turns wet and chilly, your family’s health and happiness is of utmost priority. From creating an inviting environment at home, to seeking ways to boost the family’s immunity, these tips will help you navigate the rainy season with ease and joy.

1. Create a Cozy Indoor Environment

There’s surely nothing better than being in a warm and inviting environment on a rainy day. Bring out some blankets and pillows and pair these up with fun activities that the whole family can enjoy at home. By creating a cozy ambiance, you’re sure to achieve a soothing atmosphere that promotes overall well-being and reduces stress.

Additionally, keeping your family’s beloved space clean and clutter-free helps reduce allergens and creates a healthier living environment. Keep in mind that a cozy indoor setting can transform rainy days into cherished moments of connections for a healthy and happy home.

2. Emphasize Quality Sleep


A full night’s rest is essential for good health. Set up  a bedtime routine for the family and ensure everyone gets sufficient sleep as this is vital for a strong immune system. Make the most out of the weather and let the soothing sounds of nature aid you in encouraging the entire family to bond over rest and relaxation.

With quality sleep comes a healthier immune function, regulated mood levels, and overall better mental health. This gives your family a natural defense against seasonal illnesses and stress.

3. Encourage Physical Activity

While outdoor activities are limited during this season, it is still important to keep the family active even inside the home. There are numerous indoor exercises and activities that the family can enjoy together, such as dancing to your favorite tunes, doing some light yoga, or engaging in indoor sports. Regular physical activity helps in releasing endorphins, reducing stress and uplifting spirits.

Moreover, having a healthy and active lifestyle promotes cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles, and supports weight management. By making time for physical activities, families can stay active, energized, and connected, even when the rain keeps them indoors, fostering a sense of well-being and togetherness all throughout the season.

4. Maintain a Nutritious Diet

Rainy weather usually leads to cravings for comfort foods Pinoys love. While it’s okay to give into cravings once in a while, be sure to balance these with healthy, nutrient-rich meals to support overall immune function.

Maintaining a nutritious diet is essential for boosting family wellness at this time of the year as well as providing the much-needed nutrients to support immune function and overall health. Incorporating a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins into meals helps strengthen the body's defenses against the common cold or cough. Nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits packed with vitamin C and leafy greens, are particularly beneficial for boosting immunity during colder months.

Also keep in mind that staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water helps flush out toxins and keeps the body functioning optimally. By prioritizing nutritious eating habits, the entire family can stay healthy, energized, and well-nourished, ensuring they can fully enjoy indoor activities and stay healthy throughout the rainy season.

5. Boost Immunity with Supplements

Rainy days usually come with the occasional cold and flu so be sure to strengthen your family’s immune system with high-quality supplements and multivitamins. Go for the ones that contain vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and probiotics to enhance overall health.

Supplements like LAC TriAction C1000 Timed-Release offers 3x the benefits of regular vitamin C and ensures continuous immune support and antioxidant protection while LAC ImmuGuard™ Junior with Probiotics helps maintain good resistance against common infections such as colds and flu and promotes fast recovery so children can quickly get back on their feet through its enjoyable jelly format and great tasting lychee flavour.

By offering a wide range of products tailored to each family member’s unique needs, LAC ensures that the entire family can maintain optimal health and vitality at every life stage.

Implementing these essential strategies will not only keep your family safe and dry but also foster a sense of togetherness and well-being during the rainy days. By prioritizing immunity, creating cozy indoor spaces, encouraging physical activity, maintaining a nutritious diet, and taking in immune-boosting supplements, you're equipping your family with the tools to thrive through whatever season.

Actress Dimple Romana with her son Elio in the new EQ Pants TVC

Dimples Romana finds the perfect diaper for her son Elio!

 

When moms achieve a milestone for their babies, it becomes a shining moment that’s remembered and even celebrated by fellow moms. It could be as simple as finding a hack for getting the baby to happily eat a nutritious snack, developing a trick to make the little one less fussy during bath time, or finding the perfect diaper that’s affordable but makes a huge improvement in baby’s protection and comfort. When a mom discovers any of these baby care hacks, fellow moms are quick to cheer her on with the words, “Ikaw na!”

This is the same expression of support that award-winning actress and in-demand host, Dimples Romana wants to share with fellow moms of toddlers. As a mom of three, whose youngest Elio is still a toddler, Dimples wants only the best for her kids so that they can have the freedom to move and be themselves.

Recently, Dimples and Elio were chosen as brand ambassadors of JS Unitrade for their number one brand, EQ Pants, one of the most trusted diaper brands in the country. Dimples and her son Elio are center in the new TV commercial (TVC) for EQ Pants, which is now airing on primetime TV.

Dimples Romana with fellow moms in the new EQ Pants TVC

 

This is a beautiful milestone for me and my family because this is Elio’s first brand family,” Dimples exclaimed during her recent launch as the new endorser during the JS Unitrade[MPA1]  Merchandise Inc., National Conference 2024. 

Whatever brand family we represent, that means we share the same values. So as soon as we found out about EQ Pants and the way they produce quality diapers while making them affordable and approachable for the Filipino family, of course I had to say yes.”

In the new EQ Pants TVC, Dimples and moms discuss EQ Pants' features, emphasizing its new Bubble Top Sheet that reduces contact with the baby's skin, helping prevent rashes. They highlight EQ Pants for its economy and quality, with Dimples showcasing her baby in the product. The commercial concludes with Dimples inviting viewers to choose EQ with the tagline, "Ikaw na!" or more fittingly, "EQaw na!" Check out the new EQ Pants TVC here https://www.facebook.com/EQDiapers/videos/1457498441573951   and here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=he0kjWd6Q40.

 

Like Dimples, moms can also have peace of mind with EQ Pants which delivers the best diaper quality. Aside from the new feature, the Bubble Top Sheet, EQ Pants also feature a Soft Cottony Cover with front to back Snug Fit to ensure a comfortable fit on the move, while its Super Absorbent Core keeps baby dry by drawing away urine. 

Thanks to these mommy-and-baby-friendly features, Dimples has more time to do other important tasks. She shared, “The best thing about the EQ Pants is that Elio doesn’t have to change his diaper often, which gives me a lot of time for more important things like bonding with my family.”

With Dimples and her fellow moms in mind, Michelle Acuña, JS Unitrade Marketing Director said, “We understand the struggles and worries of moms when it comes to the comfort and protection of their babies or toddlers. EQ Pants is carefully designed with that in mind so mom and baby can feel at ease knowing that their baby can happily move around without worries of rashes or leakage for long hours.”


New EQ Pants endorser Dimples Romana with  Karl Po, chief operating officer  and Samuel Po, chief executive officer of JS Unitrade Merchandise Inc.

 

Experience your own “EQaw na!” moment with the EQ Pants readily available in retail stores nationwide and online platforms so that moms can have convenient access for them to purchase whenever needed.

4 Ways to Give Mom the Gift of ‘Time’
LAC, the leading health and wellness supplement retailer in the Philippines, delves into a unique celebration of a mother’s love that extends beyond traditional gifts and flowers.

Mother's Day goes beyond showering our moms and the mother figures in our lives with gifts, it's about nurturing our connection with them and showing appreciation for the invaluable role they play in our lives.

The most priceless gift we can give them is time -- time well spent with their loved ones, time to show our appreciation for everything they do for us, and time spent on themselves and their passions as they age gracefully.

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, here are four heartfelt ways to give Mom the gift of time and honor her love, strength, and unwavering dedication.

1. Time to Say “Thank You”

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to overlook the countless sacrifices and selfless acts of love that our mothers make for us each day. This Mother's Day, let's take the time to express our heartfelt appreciation to them. Whether it's through a heartfelt card, a handwritten letter, or simply sending a text with a few words of gratitude and taking the time to acknowledge everything she has done and continues to do will mean the world to her.

2. Time to Treat Mom

As moms, they juggle a lot of responsibilities and obligations – keeping up with work, her family, her friends, and maintaining a household, just to name a few. There’s a tendency for mothers to neglect their own needs and well-being. On this special day, let's encourage Mom to carve out some much-deserved time to unwind. Whether it's booking her a spa appointment, indulging in her favorite hobby, or simply taking her to a nice cafe, giving Mom the gift of time to relax and decompress can work wonders for her overall well-being.

3. Time to Embrace Wellness Together

For mothers, who often prioritize the needs of their families above their own, their personal needs and even their health take a backseat. LAC (Leader in Antioxidative Control™), the leading health and wellness supplement retailer in the Philippines, believes we can also give our moms more time by supporting and encouraging them to maintain good health. So to celebrate Mother's Day a little differently this year, LAC encourages families to engage in activities that promote holistic wellness together, from going for a swim, to practicing yoga, or simply going on a nature walk. By doing an activity, you’re reminding moms to prioritize their health and how much you value their overall well-being.

4. Time to Revitalize Her Youth

In today's fast-paced world, mothers encounter challenges that may cause stress, accelerating the aging process. Aging impacts every aspect of well-being, from appearance to function. LAC believes incorporating high-quality supplements can support holistic well-being and slow down the aging process.

LAC StemC® is the perfect choice for mothers seeking rejuvenation. Derived from premium thoroughbred horse placenta and synergistic ingredients, it offers cellular regeneration and improves physiological health to support recovery from the demands of motherhood. Its potent blend developed in Japan promotes skin elasticity, elevating vitality and restoring strength, ensuring that mothers feel their best inside and out.

Additionally, incorporating supplements like LAC FullCal® which contains a Calcium Magnesium ratio 2:1 for optimum absorption with co-nutrients such as Vitamin D3 and more. This convenient on the go melt-in-the-mouth powder for strong bones and teeth helps ensure optimal nourishment, supports healthy muscle function, and aids muscle contraction and relaxation, making the journey smoother for experienced moms. LAC Joint Protec™ Glucosamine Chondroitin + Collagen, on the other hand, can provide daily relief with Glucosamine and Chondroitin, essential for managing the physical demands of daily motherhood activities and boosting mobility and flexibility crucial for active and agile mothers caring for their families. Its jelly form makes joint health support easy and enjoyable for busy mothers, offering a convenient alternative to caplets.

Our goal is for moms to feel their best every day, so what better gift to give them this Mother's Day than the gift of vitality?

This Mother's Day, let's celebrate the extraordinary women who have shaped our lives by offering more than just greetings or material gifts.  Let's take the time to remind them and show them how much we genuinely appreciate their strength and timeless love.

Ballet Manila stages a beloved Filipino children's classic in Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang


The country’s creative powerhouses bring to life: Ballet Manila’s Ang Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang


Ballet Manila once again unearths the magical baul of Lola Basyang as it transports its audience to a world of fantastic dance, music and spectacular visuals with Ang Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang set to happen at Aliw Theater from May 11, 2024 at 8PM and May 12 &18, 2024 at 5PM.

The second show among the repertoire for Ballet Manila’s 26th Performance Season aptly titled “Ballet Masterpieces,” Ang Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang is based on the retellings of Severino Reyes’ stories by Christine Bellen Ang.   Published by Anvil Publishing, the three stories are an engaging mix of romance, adventure and comedy, touching on such universal themes as loyalty and commitment to family, the power of humility and of course, love conquers all.  

“We chose three stories out of twelve (12) Lola Basyang books.  It was an interesting process because there were so many great tales that were worth sharing. But in the end, we felt that the themes we chose can truly resonate with an audience across many generations,” shared Lisa Macuja Elizalde, artistic director and chief executive officer of Ballet Manila. 

“As a publishing company that’s known for producing books about Philippine culture, we feel it is part of our duty to ensure that the magic of these stories is not lost among the younger generation.  “Ang Mga Kwento Ni Lola Basyang” is among the books that have mesmerized generations of Filipino children and we are confident they will love the ballet version,” shared Xandra Ramos Padilla, Anvil Publishing president.  ”We’re so thrilled that  these stories will once again be brought to life through compelling performances, thanks to our partnership with Ballet Manila.” 

Bringing life to the enduring character of Lola Basyang is Mitch Valdes – the acclaimed performance artist who has been active in the theater and entertainment industry for over 50 years. Best known for her award-winning roles in Lunes, Martes, Miyerkules, Huwebes, Biyernes, Sabado, Linggo where she won a Gawad Urian Award for Best Supporting Actress, Mitch has also starred in highly-acclaimed movies such as Oro, Plata, Mata; Manila by Night; and Bulaklak sa City Jail. 

The cast of Ballet Manila’s Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang standing from left: John Ralp Balago, Stephanie Santiago, Ris Camaclang, Gerardo Francisco,  Jessica Pearl Dames, Jasmine Pia Dames, and Romeo Peralta; along with (seated from left) Singer-actress and comedienne Mitch Valdes as Lola Basyang, Ballet Manila artistic director and CEO Lisa Macuja Elizalde and Anvil Publishing Inc. managing editor Jordan Santos 

Mitch’s captivating performance of Lola Basyang will open the production. Not surprisingly, the role has evoked a sense of patriotism in the actress. “We’re familiar with all the international classics but this one is a rare chance to see one of our beloved folklore come to life in classical ballet. It will be beautiful because the story is one of our own.” 

Ang Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang will then unfold with the first story, Ang Prinsipe ng mga Ibon which tells the tale of a princess who wishes to marry her beloved bird against her father’s disapproval. In the end, the princess decides to turn into a beautiful bird to join her beloved bird who happens to be a prince in his kingdom. 

Breathing life into the characters are principal dancers Jasmine Pia Dames/Shaira Comeros as Prinsesa Singsing and Romeo Peralta/Joshua Enciso as Prinsipe ng mga Ibon. Choreographed by the late Osias Barroso Jr., Ballet Manila’s co-artistic director until his passing in December 2023, the production hopes his legacy will live on through the choreographies he has created. 

Barroso once said, “I want Ang Prinsipe ng mga Ibon to be very romantic. I want people to fall in love after watching it.” Complementing his vision is the award-winning musical arranger Mon Faustino who arranged music for the production using compositions of national artists for music. 

From the soaring magic of enchanted birds, the production moves on to focus on the dark ramifications of greed in Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Maria which tells the story of a couple who are folk healers, thanks to the leaves of a magical tree that their three daughters would pick every morning. Because of the couple’s greed, they were punished by the serpent living in the tree, taking their three daughters to marry them off to beastly animals. The couple soon had another child, this time a son, and before the father’s death, he requested his son to look for his three sisters.

Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Maria is a collaborative partnership between Lisa Macuja Elizalde as the choreographer, and Filipino Music legend, Joey Ayala who composed the music for the entire ballet.

“For Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Marya, I wanted to merge the movements of the folk dances of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to represent the three worlds to show the cultural diversity and color of our nation,” explained Macuja Elizalde.

Apart from the magnificent ballet, the production is an auditory treat as it will feature a rare combination of raw sounds from kawayan and metal, complemented by orchestral synthesizer sounds to stimulate the imagination of the audience.  For this story, Anselmo Dictado/Sean Pelegrin will perform the role of Pedro, while the Tatlong Maria will be played by Rissa May Camaclang (Maria Trining), Stephanie Santiago (Maria Loleng) and Jessa Balote/Jessica Pearl Dames (Maria Upeng).

No less than National Artist Ryan Cayabyab composed the lively and catchy music that will accompany the dancers in  Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin.   The last installment in the trilogy, its tells the story of a young man named Rodrigo who is rewarded with a magical violin for his kindness to an old woman.

Completing the creative powerhouse for this final tale is the late award-winning Filipino ballet dancer Tony Fabella, whose amazing choreography reaffirms his belief that, while the story is easy enough to understand, audiences will have a deeper appreciation for the beautiful message of Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin if told through ballet. True enough, theater goers must prepare to be enthralled by the performances of Gerardo Francisco Jr./Anselmo Dictado as Rodrigo and John Ralp Balago/Junmark Sumaylo as Ahab.

From the brilliantly written word to the wonderful stage of  ballet, Ang Tatlong Kwento ni Lola Basyang is a production mounted with the heartfelt intention of  giving birth to a newfound appreciation for our vibrant Filipino culture: “We hope that they come out of the theaters having learned so many valuable life lessons,” said Macuja Elizalde. 

All performances will be staged at Aliw Theater, Pasay City. For tickets, visit www.ticketworld.com.ph. To know more about Ballet Manila and its shows, visit www.balletmanila.com.ph
