Master Of Multi-tasking (MOM) is how we describe most mothers. The job requires 24/7 undertaking for the family and this very reason is why we tend to overlook our own self.
“Every parent wants to give the best to their children”, we hear this statement all too many times to the point that we can already call it a cliché but can we deny that being a parent gets you ready to endure all sacrifices for your children?
My first encounter with Mommy Ichel was when she launched her book Family Goals during one of our Feast sessions at PICC (Feast is a weekly catholic gathering lead by Bro. Bo Sanchez). Her book teaches us how to embrace your family life in different circumstances.
Ichel also reiterated what most of us mothers already know but we are so engrossed with our daily routine to make changes. She pointed out that “Imbalance Brings an Internal Knot”, she further stated that areas in our body experiences tension or pain as well as stress whenever we experience hurtful infection, thus causes an internal knot. Therefore, it is necessary to understand what causes these emotions and do something about it.
A word to the wise is start investing for your kids’ education. I know this is easier said than done, but Ms. Segismundo showed us another chart where doing so is indeed achievable (I suggest that you talk to a Sun life financial advisor to be enlightened). This reminded me to call mine to schedule for a presentation.
It was stressed that in building an educational fund, 3 key components are to be addressed: Time, Money and Interest. Money and Interest can be earned as you go along but Time spent procrastinating will never be brought back, hence, the earlier you start, the better.
Sun Life’s My Future fund is a target date fund that invests primarily in high-quality stocks that promotes capital appreciation at the onset to maximize earning potential in the earlier years and shifts to wealth preservation to reduce exposure to risk as the maturity of the fund approaches. It offer target dates from 2020 onwards with five-year increment.
She Said, She Said
The second installment of #SunShorts 2 gives us a fishbowl insight on how single parents struggle to provide for their children, a task two parents are supposedly sharing. The film undeniably touched the hearts of many parents, giving them a time-lapse of events that they might have experience or are experiencing now.
Mom’s Day out
Sun Life wants to reach out to more mothers in the coming weeks and are encouraging them to register to join the next Mom’s Day out events happening on July 1 and 15, 2017 at I’M Hotel, Makati Ave, Makati City.
Aside from the meaningful lessons, the first batch of attendees were treated to a pampering session at the hotel’s I’m Onsen Spa. I particularly loved their Signature Massage which emphasized on the parts of my body that needed extra attention (You will be given a form beforehand to instruct which area you want to concentrate on).
As if all the above-mentioned aren’t enough, several other brands were inspired by this engagement and prepared several loots for you to take home. Thanks to I’M Hotel, I’M Onsen Spa, Working Mom, Belo Baby, Celeteque, Messy Bessy, TWG Tea, Pascual Creamy Delight, Sarah’s Home, Green Stevia and True Tea.
