Nowadays, phone apps allow us to know the current weather. It is in our advantage as we can plan ahead what to wear and we can prepare even more for extreme conditions.

In a very cold weather, we can control the temperature by wearing appropriate clothing. Thin warm layers are better than wearing a bug chunky clothing. For a more Cozy Winters , accessories like gloves, scarfs and hats are important.

Drinking hot drinks and eating hot meal as well as eating regularly can keep our energy high during winter. 

Maintaing a good 18 degrees celcius temperature at home can make us more comfortable. 

Keep warm, stay active at home and enjoy a very good cuddles with your loveones.

I love to travel. The thing that I don't want to happen is to get sick during certain trip. Long before I became a mother, I always pack my bag with medicines that can be of great ease when something goes wrong. Few items are added to my list for my baby, our little tag along.

Here's my list:

Traditionally, we go to places to unwind and clear our minds from worries or anything that keeps us stress for a day or week. That is still a good idea.

Different people are expose in different kinds of stressful events or circumstances. As we allow those things to occupy our minds, our bodies tend to react on them and keeps us down. We surely do not want that to happen.

In our work, for example, there are situations that we cannot avoid. These situations can either be good or bad. For good, well things can be brighter ahead of us. But when there are bad instances, everything else can fall apart. It is just right to face every situation with clear mind and appropriate actions. 

Facing different kinds of stress can sometimes be challenging. But with the right move, you will be alright. 

For me there are few things that we can do to fight stress. First, live a healthy and happy life by eating healthy and exercise regularly. Second, live one day at a time. You cannot solve all problems in a day.  Third, every problem has a solution. Giving up is not an option. Just focus and don't worry of not getting the solution right the first time. Fourth, include music in your life. Music is a known aid in releasing stress in our lives. Listen to a song you adore so much. Play an instrument like drums, guitar, fender jaguar bass , violin, saxophone or anything else you want. Finally, always find time to meditate, pray and love. These will rejuvinate us from inside to outside. 

We are created above all things. We have a God that is bigger than any of our problems. DO NOT let stress get you. Instead, remember that YOU GOT THIS.

Eventhough I am a Pharmacist by profession, I don't immediately advise someone to pop certain pill to relieve one from his complain.

Music heals, you know. There are plenty of conditions that can be turned to music for more effective or additional approach. For most of us, music is part of our daily lives. Just like when we're on a very bad mood after a very long day. Turning on your stereo and listening to a classical music can calm us down and relax us even more. When we are doing around the house like cooking or cleaning the house, we choose to listen to music as well to keep us more lively and energetic perhaps. Different genre have different neurological effect.

Nowadays, music is use as therapy in different cases and people like in autism, palliative care, bereavement, seniors, children, burn units and many more. Musical therapists are not only aware of devices and tools like cerwin vega ls-12 . They are well-trained to use music in order to provide beneficial effect to particular individual. 

I would love to think that your own choice of music makes you feel better even when you are under the weather.

Why not pause for a while. Think and make new and exciting goals.
