Cover-19 and Philippine Start-ups

Working with SMEs and start-up founders has been invigorating. Young, bright, capable, and focused, they are out there to make the world a better place. As they put their own money into their dreams, the events of the pandemic sends them to freeze and wonder whether they should have taken the leap at all. In this video, I talk about the importance or hope and resilience in making it though the challenging time. Watch the full video here.


Kuwentuhan Covid

Online discussion on developing coping skills in light of Covid-19

Life in Manila has changed dramatically since the implementation of ECQ. Many are climbing up the walls with so much time and equal amounts of anxiety. Many complain that they have so much work and time to do it but remain in a ‘funk’ unable to do anything worth the paper it is written on. Such is the effect of anxiety and stress — the mind ruminates, imbalances of hormones rage, our moods are unpredictable.

Whist it looks like a runaway train, there are a few tricks we can use: create daily schedules, do activities that calm the nerves are some. For example, you know that bag of junk food is beckoning but it makes you feel ‘ugh’ after. Simply, keep the junk food in the cupboard and keep a basket of fruit nearby. The science shows that a simple change in environment can help create a change in habit.


Making Relationships Work during Covid-19

Relationships are on trial as Covid-19 rages. Family members snipe and gripe. Everyone tries to get understanding and support from the other, but somehow, it is thin in coming. It is unfair to judge your spouse or demand from them at such an unusual trying time. There are simply too many points of uncertainty. Work on your relationship by focusing on your inner growth. Develop listening skills, self-reflection, test your personal strengths. Be there for yourself, try to give, but take care of yourself first. Once the situation normalises, attitudes and loving gestures will return as well. Watch the full Webinar here.

Woman Up Episode 3: importance of meditation

Woman Up: Show for OFWs . Providing support during the Covid-19

The Philippines finds itself unable to do Easter Services celebrations as the Philippines is still in lockdown. To go with ritualistic prayers, meditation is a helpful tool that fosters well-being. Meditation helps because it helps us stay in the present situation. This helps us become grateful for what we do have. Deep breathing helps to centre the mind and calm the racing thoughts. Being still helps us retrain focus on on surroundings and helps our different senses attune to the goings-on without any judgement around it. A quick 5 minutes a day is all it takes. Build on this healthy habit. To view the webinar, click the link.


The Situation and not the Attitude that defines the actions of a person

Guesting with a group that provides support for OFWs

The government has just extended quarantine from April 15 to May 15. And, people are naturally anxious for their family and friends. In the homefront, family members are frequently at each other’s nerves as tensions then to escalate quickly. It is the collective anxiety that adds to our own tension. Many families ask me if their spouse is really the horrid person to bickered because of a minor ruffle on the table cloth; who became demanding when the veggies weren’t cooked well enough. The answer is ‘NO”. Everyone is reacting to the stress of the situation. Simply put, they are not nasty people. they are people placed in a nasty situation. Listen more on this topic at my webinar
