The week ahead will be so busy for me. Two days that I would be attending a seminar and that would mean more sitting than moving around all day long listening to lectures and doing the assigned workshops. This is not healthy for me because aside from the lack of moving about and lack of stretching of extremities, there is the abundance of food, in contrast. This has always been the case during seminars and trainings, fattening. The temptation to eat is high and risk of indulgence is most likely to happen. I know this can be remedied by shedding off of added calories, but nowadays the weather does not cooperate. It has been inclement for weeks now. I pray the weather would be fine next week for comfortable jogging.
I can count by my fingers the number of wedding occasions where I take part as a wedding sponsor. I can guess why. It is because most people who do not know me so well perceive me to be unapproachable. I have heard comments from people who were proven wrong with their misconceptions of me. Well, this misconception works fine for me for the very reason that I won't be saddled with having the compulsion of buying a new gown to wear for the wedding occasion, especially to blend with the wedding theme or color motif. I love attending weddings, though. It is my best party ever. I love reminiscing the feeling of being a bride in a church wedding, most especially. I also enjoy the challenge of having to find the best gift to the wedding couple, one that they would find useful and that would remind them of me. It is a hassle sometimes, though, especially when I do not have the luxury of time to find the best. Glad that there is now the internet world to shop for wedding gifts and favors like the wedding favors at Favor Warehouse. No hassle shopping because for just a click of the mouse or tap of the fingers, voila, you can find the best wedding favors you are looking for. Saves time and energy and most of all, it gives the best value of your money.

I am glad to be part of the Insurance company I am affiliated with for almost three years now. It is my extra job as a Financial Advisor. It gives me extra income. Being one was a work in progress in in this insurance industry. The first year was difficult. I only had few sign ups. In the second year, my first year sign ups doubled. On this third year I worked amazingly. I had to battle with the hours after my office even up to ten at night and also during weekends. It was a challenge and mission at the same time. I am glad to be part of the lives of the many people I have touched in preparing for their future and for ensuring the future of their loved ones. Through this post I hope to be able to find people who will invest in their future.

As far as national budgeting is concerned, there is now this budgeting process reform that has been going on for two years now. The approach is bottom up budgeting, as the name budgeting starts from the bottom or from the grassroots level. This is an approach in budgeting that enjoins people's participation in making a decision on what to plan for the municipality that would address the existing poverty situation at the barangay levels. As one of the members of the oversight agency for this bottom up budgeting program, I can say that this approach works well compared to the previous budgeting approaches in the national government. I am happy to be actively involved in facilitating this planning and budgeting process.

Happy Monday everyone. It will be a busy one for me. I woke up early now so I can start my day very early. I shall have to brace myself for a tiring and sweating speaking engagement in a warm auditorium. I hope it will rain to cool down the venue. I accepted the speaking invite last week related to disaster management. So, off I go and till then.

I was cleaning the house when I saw the recording of the songs of the choir group of my office where I was a member of. I played it. I noticed that our song recording was not so good. I noticed some popping noise over the recording. I wonder if the microphones used ever had pop-noise protection filter just like the function of ps101. The fast moving air causes mechanical impact over the microphone and this popping noise coudl have been filtered by the pop filter. Anyway, now that I know about it I will next time recommend it to recording studios whenever I have the chance to record again.
Happy Sunday everyone. I am watching a tv program where the topic of the discussion is anemia. It is a very informative tv program and I always watch it every Sunday. A specialist doctor is always invited as the resource person on a particular topic. Anemia according to the discussion can be caused by blood loss, iron deficiency and anemic of chronic disease or long term medical condition. The treatment of anemia starts with identifying the underlying cause. A doctor shall be consulted when the following symptoms of anemia occurs: anemia extreme fatigue, paleness, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pains, frequent infections, headache, dizziness or light headiness. It pays to know some information about body health issues. Makes me vigilant.

Exercise Your Brain
How many times have you walked into a room and forgotten why you headed there in the first place? Or met someone and forgotten their name within the first 15 minutes of talking to them? Maybe you’re one of those people who have to constantly refer back to past notes in lectures and presentations because you struggle to retain what you’ve heard a hundred times before. I am guilty of all of the above, in fact my family jokes that if it weren’t for the fact that my alarm is programmed to say ‘Name, it’s time to wake up’ I would forget my own name!
Fortunately I’m not the only scatterbrained ditz in the world so there are a load of solutions and techniques designed to improve my memory and get my brain to optimum operating levels!
Exercise body and mind
Everybody knows that exercise is good for keeping your body fit and healthy. But they may not know that there are studies that say a single 15 minute exercise session improves your memory and cognitive functions! But I’m not just talking about physical exercise here. There are a ton of online resources for activities and exercises that are designed to train your brain and improve not only how much you remember, but how quickly you read, learn and react to a variety of stimuli.
Repetition is key
When you are trying to learn something new then the best way to go about it is by repetition. When you’re learning about something new but you’re struggling to keep all the facts straight head online and find everything you can on that topic, including videos, articles and images. Most people have their own way of presenting facts and there are a hundred different ways to say the same thing, but by absorbing the same set of information in a multitude of ways your brain doesn’t get bored and stays engaged.
Learn new things
While you may be passionate about one particular thing your brain starts getting bored if you just keep doing the same activities and talking about the same things with the same people all the time. You could think of your brain as a young child that needs to be kept entertained everyday of your life. While they are perfectly happy to play with their action figures for hours, they will eventually get bored and then you better have something else to keep them occupied for a few more hours. So learn a new language, master a new game, learn a new dance, or teach yourself a new craft. Just keep your brain entertained! And when you need supplies for your new hobbies don't forget to look for profitable coupons and promo codes for Sears.com, which will help you get huge reductions on all your shopping.
Use brain training apps and resources
There are literally hundreds of online sources and apps that have brain training programs. And many of them have been developed using clinically proven methods and techniques. Someone else has done all the hard work of creating a program that actually does what it says and improves your memory or how fast you think, so why waste effort trying to figure it out on your own!
Eat chocolate (and other good foods!)
Now this tip is actually my favorite because I will use any excuse to eat chocolate, in fact I’ll eat through you to get to it! But there are a number of scientifically proven benefits to eating dark chocolate that make eating it more than just a guilty pleasure. When you eat chocolate your brain produces dopamine. And dopamine has the amazing side effect of helping you to learn faster and improve your memory. Plus it has flavonols and natural antioxidants that are also great for keeping your brain fit and healthy.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t just sit here reading this article, head out and start flexing your cerebral muscle!
