Here are proven tips for losing weight using reliable methods that really work:

This campaign is promulgated by the Department of Health (Philippines) with full effort to stop Covid-19 (Corona Virus Disease -2019)
This is how to protect yourself and loved ones from this dreaded disease.
Do the FIVE!
1. Do Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
2. Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
3. Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
4. Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
5. Don’t Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean
Here are some infographics to help you understand this pandemic better.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommends frequent handwashing as one of measures to protect yourself from Covid-19 and stop the spread of it. This pandemic has been wrecking havoc across the globe.
But what if there’s no soap and water available and access seems impossible? Having rubbing alcohol or sanitizers are instant savers.
Here’s what you need to know about these two;
Variations: Ethanol/ Ethyl, Isopropyl, Propanol
Pros: It is a fast-acting disinfectant. Kills 99% of microbes, bacteria and viruses and has been the most popular first-aid or disinfectant in medical facilities such as hospitals
Cons: Flammable, drying and unfriendly to skin
Hand Sanitizer (alcohol based)
I am biased to this one and prefers bringing a tiny bottle in my purse.
Variations: Scented and unscented
Pros: Skin friendly because it’s partly gel & moisturizer, effective in killing most bacterias and viruses
Cons: Must contain at least 60% alcohol to be effective and must be used properly and with sufficient amount for effectivity
Hope this is helpful. Remember nothing beats handwashing. Let us fight Covid-19 together!
Stay Safe everyone!
Social Distancing – is one of the measures we are now using to stop or slow down the spread of Covid-19.
Since Covid-19 is a highly contagious disease that can be transferred via close droplet transmission. Measures include limiting large groups of people coming together and canceling events that would gather a crowd.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended against any gatherings of 50 or more people over the next eight weeks, in an effort to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
Many schools, libraries, universities, places of worship, and sporting and cultural institutions have also shut down for the next few weeks.
These measures are an attempt to enforce distance between people, a proven way to slow pandemics.
Experts have also been urging people to practice voluntary “social distancing.” And term is now trending all over Social Media.
Sharing is Caring. Let us do our part and fight Covid-19.
Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying? Leave the care of your affairs to me and everything will be peaceful.
I say to you in truth that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and resolves all difficult situations… A thousand prayers do not equal one act of abandonment; don’t ever forget it. There is no better novena than this:
O Jesus, I abandon myself to you. Jesus, you take over.

Former Senator Rene Espina, who authored the country’s first anti-illegal drugs law, died on Friday, his son Erik has confirmed in a social media post. The elder Espina was 89.CNN PHILIPPINES
“Another light dimmed in the passing of a good man who loved his country,” the Espina son said on his Facebook page.
The Senate on Wednesday, September 18, honored the late senator Rene Espina, author of the country’s first anti-drug law.
Espina was a member of the 7th Congress from 1969 to 1972. He died of kidney complications on September 13, 2019.
Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said Espina was ahead of his time as he sought to flag the effects of illegal drugs in the country. Espina authored Republic Act No. 6425 or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1972.RAPPLER
“Forty-seven years ago, Senator Espina had already identified the country’s illegal drug problem, although it was still at its incipient stage, as an emerging threat to human security,” Drilon said.
Senate President Vicente Sotto III said that Espina had demonstrated that “a life in public service is a life well-lived.” Espina’s anti-drug law was the precursor to Sotto’s Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
“That he was the author and sponsor of the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1972 again placed him as a co-warrior in the fight against illegal drugs,” Sotto said.
The Senate held necrological services to honor the late senator on Wednesday.

Got this special prayer from CrossWalk.com and I wept while praying. This is for all who is suffering and desperately need help and healing. Let’s believe in Him. ☝️
God, you know me so well.
You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I’ll live and serve you on earth.
I’m coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much I don’t understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.
I don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.
