Coping with pregnancy Anxieties

Pregnancy is a new journey for every woman and whether it is meticulously planned or comes unexpectedly, one thing is definite – a woman’s life will never be the same. It is an experience that will reinvent your world for you.

Like any other journey, you tend to guess what lies ahead. The idea of uncertainty, added responsibility and pressure makes you start to reassess yourself and your competencies. And whether or not you think you are ready for motherhood, you are forced into this new, but wonderful world.

A grand adventure begins

The good thing is, pregnancy is designed to naturally prepare you for motherhood. While it is inevitable that you feel uncomfortable, anxious and scared about what comes next, there are moments you will be filled with joy.

Being apprehensive about the responsibility for another human life is normal, but know that this should not hinder you from enjoying the journey towards motherhood.

Someone once said “Motherhood is the only place where you can experience heaven and hell at the same time,” and so whenever you think of all the challenges of your pregnancy, know that it is worth it.

Redefining a spectrum of Fear

Fear originates from the sense of not being in control. One perspective of fear is life threatening while another spectrum is one that holds you back from living the life that you deserve. It is common to randomly worry about pregnancy and all the other aspects related to it but whenever you feel anxious towards those, its better to try to take control of things you can manage and channel your energy towards something positive. Indulge yourself in self-reflection and positive self-talk. Think of an empowering and convincing statement that will oppose your limiting belief.

The secret to coping with your worries is redefining fear. You can simply look at fear as an opportunity for self-discovery, the gateway from simply wishing and wanting, to doing and being.

Redefining fear with a touch of optimism can be a form of reaffirmation within yourself. ProMama assures you that, yes you can cope with your worries and you can and will become a good mother.

Be fit and fab by taking control

Take control of your pregnancy and do not let your pregnancy take over you. You make a continuous effort to transform fear into power – power to decide on how you will act on your anxieties and live your life the way you’ve pictured it to be. It is a chance for you to know and understand you and your baby more.

Since pregnancy is all about coping with your new role as mother, this is a most opportune time to adjust your lifestyle in a way that you live the life you dream for yourself while ensuring to provide the life you dream for your child as well. Nine months is enough time to form good habits and to prepare yourself for motherhood.

For starters, drink ProMama to help you feel more at ease because only ProMama contains Vitamins C, E and A. It’s coupled with Mental Enhancers like DHA, a nutrient important for a child’s visual and mental development; Folic Acid, which is essential for the development of the nervous system and in preventing neural tube defects; and Zinc, which assists in fetal neurodevelopment.

Remember, when you have worries that haunt you, there is no one formula to be a perfect mother, but there are a million ways to be a good one. By being true to yourself and taking control, you can be the good mom that you hope to be.

Place this in your mind, “Mama yes you can take control. Mama yes you can be fit and fab.” You already know the secret to coping with your anxieties and so do not be afraid, rather, look forward to what comes next.

Young Yasmene Grace P. Arim Is Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2 Grand Winner

When Yasmene Arim decided to take on the challenges in Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2, her mother had very simple but no less relevant words of wisdom for her precocious seven year old daughter: “Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.”

The dance, swimming and taekwondo aficionado sent in their auditions online and actually became the show’s first guests to make it via online auditions.

“Sobrang excited ko (I was so excited),” young Yasmene enthused.

“Pinapainom ko si Yasmene lagi ng gatas at pinapakain ng maraming gulay at fruits. We believe we are strong, we can fight and we can win this competition,” her mother adds.

And they did.

The show is designed to bring out the strength, energy and resilience of children and bring out the Batang May Laban in them by way of traditional Filipino games such as tumbang preso and patintero. The host of Ready Set Laban Season 2 shares how he can describe the show in three words: Ready To Play. “The kids I encountered are so ready to play and face the challenges in the show. It did not feel like I was working. I just had fun and I played a lot with them,” Drew Arellano shares.

For its second season, Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban came back with more exciting challenges and bigger prizes. As for what young Yasmene asked for as a prize? She asked for school bags and supplies for her friends and classmates at school which Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban Season 2 happily provided.

Behold Bohol

Bohol is moving to become the must-go destination in the Philippines as it launches   new and exciting tourist destinations with rock bottom prices for airfares, hotels and resorts during a travel fair to be held in Glorietta Mall on Dec. 8-10.
Bohol provincial governor Edgar Chatto said the province will also formally launch its new branding “Behold...BOHOL,” which positions the province as a destination that exudes a sense of awe in every visitor.

The three-day event is the first time ever that tourism sector in Bohol comes together in a massive campaign to entice tourists to visit. It is part of the Bohol Tourism Action Plan developed through the collaboration of the United States Agency for International Development through its Advancing Philippine Competitiveness Project (USAID-COMPETE), the Department of Tourism (DOT), the United Nations-World Tourism Organization (UN-WTO), and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) as well as local tourism stakeholders.
Meanwhile, the new branding “Behold...BOHOL” was developed with the help of CNN’s branding expert Anita Mendiratta.  Bohol is the first province that benefited from an outreach program of CNN.
AirAsia, the leading budget airline in the Asian region, is the exclusive airline partner for the campaign and will offer seat sale.  The airline that has been awarded the Skytrax’s World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for six consecutive years is also committed to offer year-round low fares for flights between Manila - Tagbilaran (Bohol) and Manila – Cebu.
At least 50% discount in accommodation, tours and other travel essentials in Bohol will be offered during the three-day travel fair.  Boholano products will likewise be on sale.
The travel fair will open in a grand program featuring the world-famous Loboc Children’s Choir. The chorale group will have a nightly concert during the three-day event.
Bohol province is dubbed as the eco-cultural tourism capital with its fascinating  Chocolate Hills, pristine and white sand beaches in Panglao and  Anda.  It is also home to the well-loved Tarsier, considered the smallest and oldest primate in the world.
“We want to develop Bohol as the tourism superpower and a top holiday destination in the Philippines,” said Bohol governor Edgar Chatto.
He said the launch of the 'Behold... BOHOL'  aims to promote the province as a complete tourist destination because every town has a unique tourist attraction to offer to visitors.
Aside from the iconic destinations, the province is surrounded by caves, tranquil rivers, fascinating water falls, marine sanctuaries, mangroves and diving sites.
Chatto said Bohol is now promoting the powdery white sand beaches of Anda, as the next tourist destination.  Road and infrastructure access to Anda are underway through the convergence program of Department of Tourism and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) that seeks to connect airports to tourist destinations. 
Anda is a must visit in Bohol for its  unique and  wider coastlines making it a perfect destination both for relaxing walk on the beach or water sports activities.
The town is also home to the Lamanok Mystical Island and is fast becoming a popular destinations. Lamanok can be reached within a two-hour drive from the capital, Tagbilaran. The island has a rich lush mangrove protecting the community from flooding, pollution and water surge. It hosts some mystical caves where ancient Boholanons bury their loved ones in jars.
Governor Chatto said Bohol is also home to Asia's largest mangrove forest called Banacon located north of the municipality of Getafe. It has a total of 425 hectares with only 15 hectares dry land and the rest are extensive mangrove plantation.
In a press statement, the Governor credited the strong support and cooperation of  tourism stakeholders in Bohol in promoting the new tourist destinations of the province.
“ The strong partnership between the local government and the private tourism stakeholders, a well equipped manpower with innate hospitality as well as the rich natural, cultural and historical attractions of Bohol are the three main factors why we are confident to become a tourism superpower,” said Chatto.
AirAsia, the Filipino Low Cost Carrier is fully supporting the ‘Behold...BOHOL’  campaign by offering its lowest possible rates for tourists visiting Bohol.
