How often does one come across a drink product that not only truly refreshes and deliciously quenches one’s thirst, but is also uniquely packaged, wittingly named and supports the local community by giving back? Well, that is exactly what one of our local brands is doing through their amazing drinks called, LOCALLY!
I love iced tea. Especially since the time I quit taking all kinds of soda over 7 years ago. It has become my go-to refreshment during hot and humid days and whenever I need a quick pick-me-upper.
When it comes to bottled ice teas, Lipton Ice Tea has always been a top choice not only for its taste but also because it has the benefits of real tea.
Lipton Ice Tea represents positivity because its uniquely refreshing taste can certainly lighten up any situation. Apart from that, Lipton Ice Tea is made from real tea extracts which help uplift anyone’s mood.
But more than anything, I’m always for good health and staying fit. That’s why I’m very picky with the brands and products I depend on, like Lipton Ice Tea. That’s because it packs the known health benefits of tea with no artificial flavors and with low calories. The top-selling Red Tea variant is only (get this!) 30 calories per 100ml bottle. This makes it an ideal choice not only for me but also for today’s perennially on-the-go millennials who are always on the lookout for quality products to fuel their lifestyles and passions.
And since Lipton Ice Tea is the go-to drink for our health conscious youth who want better options, what better person to best represent Lipton than the country’s one and only Popstar Princess.
Sleeplessness or lack of sleep. Whichever of these two keeps you company at night, the negative effects to one’s body are the same such as advanced ageing and a weak immune system.
In my line of work, whether blogging until the wee hours of the morning, staying up from morning till next morning for a taping of a TV series episode, or traveling locally or out of the country with a tight itinerary, lack of sleep is a common (and very frequent) thing.
And as much as regular exercise and having an active lifestyle is important, it is critical to have enough sleep as well.
As much as I’d like to get ample rest in order to recover from a stressful and hectic day, sometimes that just isn’t possible. I’m sure a lot of you can relate – especially those who work late nights employed at call centers or BPOs. Some of you have probably even resorted to snacking on junk food and coffee, or worse, smoking, during the very late hours just to stay awake and alert.
Here’s the thing… I found out that the body’s immune system undergoes a natural cycle of rest and repair from 10pm-3am. This corresponds to the natural sleeping hours of the day. However, the nature of my work and probably yours, too, does not allow for much rest during these hours.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that a weak immune system easily leads to sickness.
Stress, among other things, can most certainly do a lot of damage to your skin. In fact, one of the most evident manifestations of stress and lack of rest can easily be seen on the face.
Given my constant traveling in and out of the country, plus the demands of my work and lifestyle, stress and lack of ample rest can never be avoided. And since having my photo taken every so often is part of the line of work that I’m in, I cannot allow myself to look tired and haggard. So, I try to find other ways to counter the negative effects of this kind of lifestyle.
Some people in the same industry (showbusiness/entertainment) look to moisturizers, lotions, and yes… even surgery. I, on the other hand, have found a means to counter these effects and improve my well-being in a much simpler and incredibly easier way.
My secret is Premium HyC 150.
I’ve always been an advocate of good health. Whenever there’s an opportunity to share valuable health tips with my readers, I jump on it.
I am very careful when it comes to supplements and the kind of vitamins I put inside my body. Hey, you only have yourself to blame in the long run if you aren’t cautious, right?
Recently, I learned more about a particular superfood that I’ve long been aware of. The superfood I am referring to is the Acai Berry. You may or may have not heard of Acai berries and the wonderful things it can do to your health. But for the benefit of those who aren’t aware of it, allow me to tell you more about these incredible fruits.
Acai (pronounced “ah-sah-ee”), is the tallest palm tree in the Amazon jungle and can grow as high as 80 feet. These palm trees produce small berries that are colored dark purple and are normally harvested from the Belem region of Para – a place in Brazil where the best of these little fruits are produced.
You’re probably curious as to why these Acai berries are considered a superfood. Well, that’s because these amazing fruits contain 10x the antioxidants found in red grapes and blueberries. Yes… 10x more.
Those who read my blog and follow me on Instagram and Twitter know that I am a fitness buff and a gym rat. I easily get paranoid when it comes to gaining weight and when I slightly veer off my usual diet.
The reason why I am extra cautious and extremely careful not to gain a significant amount of weight is because I was incredibly out of shape not too long ago.
It’s true! For the benefit of those who thought I was this fit my whole life, you’d probably be amused to know that sometime back in 2010 (more or less), I weighed 185 lbs! For someone who merely stands 5’6″ tall, 185 lbs. is not at all good… any way you look at it.
So, when I decided to hit the gym and dedicated myself to getting healthy and fit, I promised to press on and never look back.
In a span of 6 months, I achieved my goal and reached my ideal weight of 138 lbs.
But, anyone would be wise to know that fitness NOT a goal. It is a lifestyle… a way of life. And for some, the real struggle is not in the process of losing weight, but in the never ending battle of keeping the weight in check. This is usually the case for people like me who easily gain. That’s why being paranoid and extremely careful of my diet is more often a necessity.
And with this constant fight against the flab, I try to find new ways to help make the battle a little bit easier.
Luckily, I discovered something that effectively aides in maintaining my weight and allows me to indulge a little bit more in the kinds of food I would normally try to avoid on a regular basis.
I live in a household that adores coffee. My father, even back when I was a kid, could hardly function without starting his day with a steaming cup of hot coffee. Every morning, my wife would get up and jumpstart the day’s activities by enjoying a satisfying cup of delicious coffee.
In my line of work (showbusiness), coffee plays a vital part in every taping day and every single shoot. And rightfully so. How can cast and crew function, especially in the wee hours of the morning without a decent “pick-me-up” drink?
Coffee is arguably one of the most important beverages of society. It breaks the ice, soothes and comforts, improves work efficiency and, yes, promotes good health.
But not all coffee drinks are made equal. Some taste better, while some offer more health benefits than others. And with a family that lives for coffee, I am quite thrilled to discover the latter.
It’s called “Nice Day Coffee”.
What makes Nice Day Coffee different, you ask? Well, it comes three (3) different variants, each offering its own health benefit… while tasting oh so good.
The cold Christmas weather… can you feel it already? It’s coming. So, why not kick back, relax, soak in all the holiday goodness and just “be in the moment” with a cup of wonderfully made coffee to keep you company.
That’s the kind of Christmas Seattle’s Best Coffee wishes for you to experience. The kind that brings back childhood memories of days gone by… filled with the joy of Christmas morn, of toys and of carefree innocence. Wouldn’t you want to relive those moments when mom would whip up a cup of hot cocoa or maybe a cold chocolate drink for you in the wee hours of the morning and everything would suddenly just feel so comforting? I’m sure you would.
And Seattle’s Best wants to help bring back that feeling of Christmas warmth through their selections of holiday coffee offerings. Not to mention the complete makeover of every Seattle’s Best branch’s interior design in keeping with the Yuletide spirit.
Starting today (Yes, TODAY), Seattle’s Best will be making available to the public their various new coffee concoctions that uniquely tugs at our emotions, invoking feelings of child-like Christmas delight.
