Choosing the right bedding can improve your respiration

Asthma is a medical conditions that obstructs the airways in the lungs. If you are an asthma sufferer, your airways are often inflamed and at risk. The numbers are growing with 315 Million cases worldwide and 8% of which is contributed by our country.

Determining what triggers your attacks will be helpful in managing this condition.Asthma attacks can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as allergens, illness, smoke, exercise, weather changes, drugs and even food we eat.

Asthma symptoms include Shortness of breath, Chest tightness or pain, difficulty in sleeping, coughing or wheezing.

Studies have revealed that our airways tend to limit its function at 4:00 in the morning, while most people are asleep. During slumber, our airways tend to restrict as resistance develops in both upper and lower airways. Most people continue to sleep without problem, but for asthmatics, the narrowing airways trigger an episode.

Our bodies could be reacting in real-time to allergens in the bedroom, such as dust mites, that may be in our mattress. Dust mites are microscopic insects that are found by the thousands in the average home. Any type of movement, like walking around in the bedroom, turning over in bed or shaking the bedding, can cause the allergens to be released into the air. It is these waste products that irritate your airways and cause an asthma attack.

In addition to regularly cleaning your sheets and blankets, you should also protect against dust mites with hypoallergenic bedding options.

“DonKiss Supporters are Unstoppable “

DonKiss is one of the strongest fandoms there is and they have proven their loyalty to their idols with a tremendous amount of support and love through various ways that you could ever think of. Twitter Parties? Donkiss fans loves to do that they even form hashtags such as this hashtag that blew the twitter world for it reached a thousand plus number of tweets and hashtag that is #DonkissFamilyIsLove that reached 827,000 tweets last December 12,2018 wow that’s crazy right?! and I believe that it is not the only hashtag that the fans trend they have a lot of hashtags that they try to trend every day. What they do is they always insert their hashtag of the day in all of their tweets just to support their favorite love team how amazing is that, and don’t even get me started with team live! I think half of the audience in ASAP (A noontime variety show) are DonKiss supporters that’s how the fans show their undying love to Kisses and Donny. Did you know that some DK fans in team live are professionals, students or even mothers but they still make it a point to see their idols and support them by screaming their names as their idols faces are flashed in the screen. Being a DonKiss fan is not just idolizing Donny and Kisses but it is also about being considerate of the members because for sure Donny and Kisses doesn’t want that their fans are not doing great. What’s good about DonKiss fans is when someone is feeling down or in the verge of giving up they help each other, they pull each other up instead of just not giving a damn. It’s just that they couldn’t take anyone for granted which I find unique about this fandom, some of them gives advice through social media, some even started vlogging about DonKiss which is a good idea to spread more positivity through YouTube. All I can say is that DK fans are stronger than you think, they are indestructible, whatever happens they’ll still stick together no matter what. Another example on how DonKiss fans are unstoppable is their recent project in Mall Of Asia yes you’ve read that right the only Mall of Asia in Pasay city. The fans flashed videos of Donny and Kisses in the famous Globemaze and we all know ( if you are living in the Philippines) that it is so big that a lot of people can see it. Did you know that DonKiss fans are the first ones to ever sponsored their idols to be in an

Add placed in the Globemaze? Imagine putting so much effort like that just to support your idol is really something, it requires a huge amount of passion and love for it to make a reality but for DonKiss fans it sure is an easy peasy. It seems like the Globe represents the fans of the love team, for it is so big that it even reached different countries, it defied different kinds of barriers such as age range, language and time frame. As we went over to the simplest down to the craziest amazing things that this fandom could do one thing is for sure their love and care for DonKiss is indestructible, loving Donkiss for them Is like breathing fresh air it is so refreshing that they don’t want to stop it, that amount of passion is something that should be treasured, even if there are times when they feel down or if something wrong they still manage to calm down and get a grip of themselves that they will not stop, they will never get tired and they will continue to be strong for one another and for their beloved loveteam Donny and Kisses. When times get rough they don’t give in, they don’t lose hope they won’t fall because Donkiss Fans are UNSTOPPABLE!

The Bamboo and the 21st Century Project Manager

The bamboo and its capacity to bend with the howling wind without breaking is quite possibly the best metaphor for what it would take to thrive in today’s VUCA world. Angela Duckworth refers to such capacity as grit. Dr. Paul Stoltz, on the other hand, introduced the concept of adversity quotient (AQ) to measure the latter. Interestingly, both researchers agree that grit and AQ could be learned. Such complements and reinforces the theme of the 2019 National Symposium on Project Management: “PMI @ 50: Building People, Developing Practice, Enabling Progress.” That is to say, the ideal project management practitioner can only enable progress to the extent that he/she invests in the basics of building people first by way of PM knowledge, skills and yes, grit and AQ! At the symposium, over a dozen world-renowned project management speakers and practitioners will be sharing their insights and best practices to enhance the capacity of project managers to be as agile and as resilient as the bamboo. The 2019 Symposium is extra-special as PMI celebrates its 50th anniversary of providing the global gold standard for managing projects effectively. All project managers across various industries, whether PMP-certified or not will definitely take away countless ideas and numerous best practices from the featured speakers.

The VUCA world isn’t going away anytime soon. So if you’re reading this and you’re serious about thriving instead of just surviving the 21st century, reserve your seat at the 2019 PMI National Symposium today.

Save the Children Philippines calls on mothers to breastfeed newborns as national nutrition survey reveals rising cases of malnutrition among babies and pre-schoolers

Save the Children Philippines urged mothers to exclusively breastfeed their newborns as malnutrition remains on steady rise among babies and pre-schoolers in the country. 

Lawyer Albert Muyot, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Save the Children Philippines said community health and nutrition workers should intensify campaigns on breastfeeding, complementary feeding and proper nutrition particularly among children of deprived families and marginalized communities.

He raised concern over the results of the 2018 Expanded National Nutrition Survey by the Department of Science and Technology-Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) presented last June 24 which showed increasing prevalence of malnutrition and anemia among babies and toddlers.

Atty. Muyot said the nutrition survey serves as “a wake-up call” in time for Nutrition Month being observed every July. 

Anemia cases among babies six to 11 months increased to 48.2 per cent in 2018 from 40.5 per cent in 2013, while anemia among toddlers aged one to two years old have increased to 35.4 per cent last year from 24.7 per cent in 2013.

Stunting, a life threatening condition due to chronic undernutrition remains high at 36.6 per cent for children two years old in 2018, from 36.2 per cent in 2013.

Malnutrition among pre-schoolers is also high particularly among three years old at 33.8 per cent in 2018 from 38.6 in 2013; and four years old at 30.2 per cent last year from 36.8 in 2013.

“Exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months and continued breastfeeding up to two years old will provide critical nutrients and protection to infants against life threatening diseases and improve their immune system,” said Muyot.

Globally, exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months prevents deaths of 1.3 million children below five years old every year.

Save the Children Philippines had been campaigning to eradicate malnutrition among children through maternal and child health and nutrition programs for children and pregnant and lactating mothers in deprived areas in the cities of Malabon, Navotas and Caloocan of Metro Manila as well as conflict affected areas of Mindanao.

Muyot urged local leaders to implement Republic Act 11148 or the First 1,000 Days Law that ensures optimum health and nutrition for children from conception up to two years old.

He said the first 1,000 days of a child’s life is considered a “critical window of opportunity” when physical growth and brain development are very crucial, and damage could be permanent or irreversible.

“We call on local government leaders to invest in safe motherhood and children’s health and well-being by providing more funds for maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition programs,” said Mr. Muyot.

He lauded the cities of Malabon, Navotas and Caloocan that have adopted the First 1,000 Days law into local city ordinances and allocated funds to improve the health and nutrition status of pregnant and lactating mothers and children below two years old.

Dr. Amado Parawan, Health and Nutrition Advisor of Save the Children Philippines said government programs on maternal and child health and nutrition should focus on priority areas with high malnutrition rates, mostly in conflict affected areas in Mindanao.

“We need to focus our nutrition programs in priority areas with high malnutrition rates to achieve the targets in the 2017 – 2022 Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition,” said Dr. Parawan who serves as private sector representative to the National Nutrition Council Governing Board. 

Save the Children Philippines advocated for the passage of Republic Act 11148, known as Kalusugan ng Mag-Nanay Act to implement maternal and child health and nutrition in the first 1,000 days of the child’s life using the Nurturing Care Framework developed by the World Health Organization, World Bank and UNICEF.

“Malnutrition is a very complex problem with long-term effects physically, mentally and socially. With the passage of RA 11148, now is the perfect time to mobilize collaborative actions from all sectors. We should always remember that takes a village to raise and nurture a child,” said Dr. Parawan.
