Stay Healthy, Stay Happy: 10 foolproof ways to lead a healthier lifestyle



As we enter the New Year, many of us promised to commit to a healthier lifestyle as part of our New Year’s Resolutions. Sticking to a resolution is easier said than done, but as long as we have a plan to fall back on, it shouldn’t be as daunting or as difficult as it seems. 

To help us out, here are 10 foolproof ways to ensure that we live a healthier and happier lifestyle.


1. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • The health benefits of eating a diet with generous servings of fruits and vegetables are endless. Not only are they dense sources of a variety of essential minerals and nutrients, they are generally high in fiber which will keep your digestive system happy and smooth-running. Pro-tip: fruits and veggies have unique antioxidant properties depending on their color. Eat the rainbow!

2. Go for regular check-ups. 
  • Don’t leave your body to take care of itself. We all need a little help sometimes, and your doctor’s job is to ensure that everything is in tip-top condition and to provide solutions when needed. 

3. Stay stress-free. 
  • While diet and exercise are very important in leading a healthy lifestyle, your mindset and attitude may be sabotaging their benefits. Stress can affect your sleep, your tendency to engage in unhealthy behaviors, and your productivity. Ensure that your lifestyle is as stress-free as possible by organizing your financial and work life; create a long-term financial plan to alleviate financial pressures and increase your financial security. 

4. Avoid foods high in saturated fat and simple sugars.
  • Swap out your white bread for wholegrain, and use canola or olive oil instead of butter in your cooking. Complex carbohydrates give you slow-release energy which will keep you energised throughout the day, and unsaturated fats will promote healthy cholesterol levels, keeping you trim and combating fatigue.

5. Find an exercise program you enjoy. 
  • It is no secret that exercise gives you more energy, helps keep your head clear, and keeps you in shape. Find what you enjoy and stick to it! If you hate jogging, try dancing. If you don’t like exercising alone, look to join a basketball or frisbee team. 

6. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
  • Give your body a well-deserved break, so that it can re-energize and prepare itself for a happy and productive day. 


7. Ditch your unhealthy vices. 
  • Smoking, drinking, or consuming too much caffeine is toxic to our bodies. Replace your unhealthy habits with healthier ones, such as exercise. If you are struggling to give up smoking, join a program that offers support and guidance.

8. Make time for friends and family. 
  • Social interaction is essential to human well-being. Appreciate the supportive people in your life and invest in the meaningful connections that will ultimately lead you to a happier lifestyle.  

9. Stay hydrated.
  • The common recommendation for water intake is eight 8-ounce glasses a day. Drinking a sufficient amount of water promotes healthy skin and will prevent headaches and other symptoms of dehydration. Additionally, for those of us trying to lose weight, a common sign of dehydration is the feeling of hunger despite having eaten adequately. Drink up!

10. Set and track fitness goals by using apps and devices.

  • Having fitness goals is a sure fire way of ensuring happiness; overcoming hurdles, whether small or big, can increase your confidence. One fitness app that helps you track your progress and remind you to hit some benchmarks is Philam Vitality Active, a free mobile app that allows you to enjoy immediate and free rewards such as free cinema ticket, free game of bowling to name a few, upon completion of your weekly goals. To experience a whole new journey to being fit and healthy, you may download the Philam Vitality Active app now available in Apple Store Phils or Google Play and sign-up using the promo code “liveactive”.

Following these simple steps will ensure that you can make the most of 2017 towards a healthier and happier you.

As a “thank you” to its customers, Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI) recently took them to South Korea’s Jeju Island, a place that is known in the travel industry as the “Island of the Gods,” for a four-day vacation. 

A total of 158 customers that included dealers, distributors, and mango contractors—and six JDI representatives—joined the trip that lasted from January 4 to 7.

Participants in the Jeju Island incentive trip of Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI)  listen attentively to the unique culture of Seoungeup Folk Village.

The fun getaway featured trekking on Mt. Halla, South Korea’s highest peak; a visit at the gravity-defying Mysterious Road; a look at one of the nation’s monuments—the Daepo Jusangjeolli Cliff; and a glimpse of Seongsan Ilchubong, the “Sunrise Peak” formed five thousand years ago by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed. 
Customers of Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI) take a photo in front of the Teddy Bear Museum during their Jeju Island incentive trip. 

The happy vacationers also enjoyed the attractions at Glass Castle, a glass art theme park; viewed the adorable displays at the Hello Kitty and Teddy Bear museums; strolled the gardens of, and checked out the zoo at, Hallim Park; visited the historic and cultural Seoungeup Folk Village; watched the classic Painters Show; and saw the famed sensual and erotic sculpture park, Love Land. 

During breaks from exploring tourist destinations, the travelers shopped and dined at Jeju Island’s shopping destinations: Ginseng Outlet, Duty Free, and Chilseongro Street. 

Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI) Jeju Island incentive trip participants enjoy delicious Korean cuisine. 
Kaye Aguilan, JDI product manager, said, “We at JDI believe that this incentive trip is a way to thank our loyal customers, and at the same time, strengthen our relationship with them.”

The trip was arranged to reciprocate the support of these customers in purchasing a package of JDI agro-products—insecticides, herbicides, molluscicides, fungicides, seeds and yield boosters. 

Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI), a member company of the Jardine Matheson Group, represents a number of leading brands in crop protection, local and foreign-made pesticides, plant growth regulators, plant nutrition, hybrid rice seeds, and vegetable seeds.

The Voice Season 12 exclusively premieres in the Philippines on February 28, 2017 (Tuesday) only on Star World

THE VOICE EXCLUSIVELY RETURNS TO STAR WORLD


Star World, FOX Networks Group (FNG) Philippines’ number one female-oriented general entertainment channel announced today the return of the well-loved and three-time Emmy winning talent show, The Voice. The Voice Season 12 exclusively premieres in the Philippines on February 28, 2017 (Tuesday) only on Star World with live telecasts every 2:00 PM and primetime replays at 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM respectively. 

Exciting turn of events are in-store for the viewers on the latest season of The Voice as we continue on the search for the next best voice that will shake the music industry to the core. The season premiere of The Voice marks the sweet return of Gwen Stefani as she once again secures her judging spot, rounding up the girl power action on the competition up against Adam Levine and once again reunited with her partner, Blake Shelton. 

The latest season of The Voice boosts a bigger, better and more engaging experience than it has on its previous season by bringing in the biggest and most recognizable names in the music industry as adviser to the coaches, making everything a match made in heaven; Celine Dion joins Gwen Stefani as an adviser taking the femme fatal action to high roads. On the other corner of music, five-time winner of show, Blake Shelton is joined by Luke Bryan — a tandem easy on the eyes and easy on dynamics as the two have worked together before to co-host the Academy of Country Music Awards. 

Adam Levine pairs up with a legend, John Legend that is. These swoon-worthy gents collaborate to take ordinary people to the next level while keeping their dapper in check. Running on her second season for The Voice, Alicia Keys, is all about winning as she teams up with award-winning hip hop artist DJ Khaled, and everyone sure knows, that all he does is win no matter what.

With all these great additions to The Voice stage, the stakes get even higher and better as the season presents extended Blind Auditions, making room for far more artists, far more voices and far more drama — leave it to host Carson Daly to make sure things don’t get out of hand. As the latest season steps up in more ways than one, Star World stays true to its promise of delivering only the best and premier content and immediately brings it fresh from the US!
