Relaxing: It's Good For Your Health

Thursday, October 12, 2017

A standard eight-hour work day isn’t just a standard day anymore. With commute times added on, most people spend up to twelve hours away from their homes and working in an office for someone else. Commuting, spending most days working away at the office and spending time with people who aren’t your friends and family- it’s stressful. We grow up from childhood and spend more time being busy and working than we do relaxing and taking time to unwind, and this can really creep up on us when we aren’t looking.

Health is one of the biggest topics out there that people talk about. Depression and anxiety are on the rise and if you aren’t taking the time to look after yourself and destress, you could be caught up in the same cycle of stress that a lot of people do. So, how can you take the time to relax after a long working day?

Playfulness in children and animals is interpreted as a sign of intelligence. While we rightly transfer the conclusion to the area of playfulness in adults, we are missing essential elements in this humoristic equation. Playful adults don’t only display intelligence and humor; but they can also reinterpret the situations in their lives in an entertaining way, which helps them to reduce stress. Playfulness is an independent personality trait that gives you a superpower in everyday life: It enables you to relax in the most challenging situations, whether your flight is delayed by several hours or you’re having a bad day at work. Naturally, there’s a balance to hold about playfulness. If you express too much of it in the wrong situation, people may not take you seriously. Too little, and you're struggling with stress and anxiety disorders. So the best way to introduce a controlled level of entertainment and fun in your life is to rely on your favorite gadgets.

5 Reasons to Stay at Hotel de Susana and Resort

Thursday, October 05, 2017 Valencia City, Bukidnon, Philippines

One of the many things I love about living in Cagayan de Oro is the fact that it's the gateway to many great places in Northern Mindanao, particularly Bukidnon. It's home to many tourist destinations and the famous Del Monte Pineapple Plantation. 

I've been to several parts of Bukidnon a lot of times already, but I usually just stay overnight and don't mind the hassle of traveling since it's roughly an hour or two away from CDO by private car. That's why in my recent trip to Bukidnon, I made sure to maximize my stay for a little weekend getaway at Hotel de Susana & Resort. I heard so many good things about it so I made sure to share it with some good friends. My quick stay at Hotel de Susana had one of those rare moments wherein I didn't want to leave. I promised myself to go back there for a longer stay!
