Stress is inevitable. I have embraced the fact that it is part of my life. In fact, according to a 2018 study conducted by CNN Philippines, things we encounter on a daily basis cause it: bosses, deadlines, schedules, colleagues, and traffic, just to name a few. But while stress is clearly unavoidable, letting it affect our health isn’t. Remember, our mind and body are inherently linked.
When stress starts to feel like it’s taking over your life, you have to try to do something about it before it ultimately wreaks havoc on your body. And while getting rid of all the things that stress you out isn’t easy; taking time out for yourself is.
As for me, before everything gets too overwhelming, I make sure that I set a day for some much needed me-time in my favorite place: Nailaholics. I swear, a simple mani-foot spa-pedi services make actual wonders.
Because of all the errands that I do, I always opt for a gel manicure because it stays longer and doesn’t chip off easily.
“The ultimate way to relieve stress is simply by taking the time to pamper yourself. Set aside a few moments out of the day to be alone with your thoughts as you indulge in a few moments of luxury and relaxation. Even for just a few hours, this takes you away from the worries of work, and traffic, and deadlines,” explains Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head.
