Now that I’m in my 30s, it’s important for me to start taking care of my health. Yes, 31 is still young but I’ve noticed changes with my body already. In my teen years and twenties, I could go on a night out and easily attend to things in the morning. In my college years, I would go to a club and go straight to class. Now, I get grumpy and can’t function if I get less than six hours of sleep. Sometimes I need an entire day to recuperate if I am too tired or drunk from the night before.
The majority of us will experience UTI, or urinary tract infection, at some point or another in our lives. It is an infection that impacts any part of your urinary system – whether that’s your kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra.
The vast majority of UTIs will affect the lower urinary system, namely your bladder or urethra. Generally speaking, women are at a greater risk of developing a UTI than men. This condition can be uncomfortable or even painful at times, and if the infection spreads to your kidneys, you could find yourself with a more serious medical situation on your hands. It’s important that you know how to identify a UTI, how to treat a UTI, and how to prevent UTIs in the future. Here’s everything you need to know!
In times like these when COVID-19 is affecting all of us greatly in every way, it’s more important than ever to not only be safe from disease and healthy, but also to be resourceful and practical.

With the enhanced community quarantine due to the coronavirus or COVID-19, most of us are stuck at home, just waiting for the outbreak to finish. The thing is, even if we’re quarantined, we should still be careful since some of us still venture out to do the groceries or other important errands. We may also have direct contact with delivery drivers who are out the whole day. Even if we’re just at home, things can still happen.
Here are seven tips to keep yourself and your family safe during the quarantine period:

Ever since I turned 30 years old, I began to rethink the ways I see my health. I began to notice little signs: I can no longer function with little sleep, a night of drinking makes me useless the following day, and I don’t have the sprightly energy I used to have in my early 20s. While 30 is still young, I have not always made the best lifestyle choices.
So as I entered another decade, I promised myself I’d make better decisions. I took the gym more seriously, I am slowly improving my diet, and I’m taking more supplements to boost my health.

I have to be honest. I’ve hit a fitness slump. Ever since I got back from my trip to LEGOLAND Malaysia, I’ve hit a wall when it comes to my fitness. My workouts have been getting erratic and I’ve let myself go in terms of my diet. In fact, I can feel a paunch growing in my midsection. I try so hard to get myself back on track, but the first steps are always the hardest. I need motivation, something that will encourage me to start going to the gym again and care about what I put in my mouth. I’m considering a smartwatch.
