Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?
Good habits are ones that are formed early in life and make a lasting impact on an individual’s core values.
Such has been the idea behind Dole Philippines’ latest sustainability initiative, the Sunshine Heroes campaign—a CSR and sustainability drive centered on engaging the schoolchildren and instilling within them the passion for embracing sustainability, through recycling, as a lifestyle and a progressive movement.
“Recycling is a habit that needs to form early. We need to teach kids that all the trash they see laying around our streets and clogging our waterways is because we need more recycling and less trash,” says Ashvin Subramanyam, Vice President for Marketing and Innovations for Dole Asia.
Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.
But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.
Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.
To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.
Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.
As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.
All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

“Every strand of donated hair counts, and so we encourage everyone to join us on June 1,” said Ma. Felina Rosario P.

Best of all is that they can get a free haircut on us while making patients happy and bringing back their confidence.”
“People with cancer have to cope not only with the emotionally and physically taxing treatment and its side-effects, including hair loss,” said Victor K. Gozali, MD, Co-Director of the Cancer Center. “This hair donation drive is our small way of giving support to these brave patients.”

Summer season is upon us! This is the time to bask in the glorious rays of the sun and have fun- sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities.
However, with temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for:
Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.
There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care for the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.
No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Women all over the world are suffering from a health condition that they themselves may not even be aware of.
This silent burden is called female sexual dysfunction (FSD), which pertains to a persistent, recurrent problem with sexual response, desire or orgasm.
FSD is often overlooked or ignored, largely because society still frowns upon the idea of women being in tune and in touch with their own bodies, especially regarding reproductive and sexual health.
