What You Shouldn’t Do on Your Period?



The most emotional time of the month for women is when their period comes. With our abdominal cramps, mood swings and other hormonal issues, getting out of bed can even be hard enough as it is. There are lots of things you should abstain from when you’re having your period.

Exercise

You should never spend time exercising while on bloody days. You feel stomach bloating during this time and you would end up blaming yourself for staining your exercise clothes. Don’t worry after a week, you can be sexy again.

Cooking

It could be risky for you to go to the kitchen while on your period because what if your housemate does something to annoy you while you’re holding a knife and your emotional attack occur? You better not venture the kitchen on your period.

Eating lots of Chocolates

Don’t easily believe in clichés that chocolate will make you feel better on your period. No it’s not true, it will only make you feel angry after.

Start Arguments

If you feel like you don’t like to talk, then you better be quiet because you may end up arguing with your friends or boyfriend because you uncontrollably say bad stuff to them out of your bad mood caused by our hormones. These hormones mess with us and make us mean.

Get out of Bed

Don’t bother getting out of bed because no one would even try to deal with your emotional outburst. All you have to do is sleep and have some good rest.

Do House Chores

If you’re worried about your messy bedroom, kitchen and living room, don’t bother cleaning them up. You’re not in a good mood to pile them up. Just attack them when the period is done.

Run

Running is not advised by health practitioners during your period. This can be the worst thing you can ever do. It will not make you feel better and you will be bound to be puffy anyway. Thus, sweating won’t be beneficial for you during this time.

What is Love?

Everybody wants love but how will you know if what you’re feeling is love? Can you even define the word itself? Sometimes we don’t contemplate on these philosophical questions even when we are engaged in pouring out and receiving love. Here’s some women’s definition of love:
Love is more than just acceptance, martyrdom… love is the answer to so many questions. it is not just a feeling… it’s doing your best without thinking you’re the best, giving the other what they need even if it could mean your poverty… it’s having the joy amidst all the hardships you might encounter in trying to love. once it’s given, you’ll receive it back (maybe in another form) however long it takes..
love… it’s the source of all hope. & as humans, we are supposed to put it where it is needed most. 🙂 – Kore
To me, true love is when you can completely be yourself around another person in good times and bad. It’s loving each other’s differences and appreciating them exactly as they are. Love is the feeling that something is missing when you are apart and the realization that everything seems so much better when you are together. Vanessa S.
What a loaded question! I can’t help but instantly think of the 1st Corinthians Bible verse. It just gives such an amazingly perfect definition of love (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). When I think of what love means to me personally, though, I think of all the different types of love I have for the people in my life. There’s romantic love, family love, friend love and the most incredible love of all: soul mate love. I knew my fiancé was ‘the one’ when I realized he is the only person in the world that I love romantically, as my family and as my best friend. Our love is easy! Love should never be difficult. Life is difficult enough. — Jenna W.

Illuminati: Myth or Real?

 

I’ve been thinking a lot about this recently. For me, it will be so easy to believe that there exist some groups of elite and influential people who control way more than its fair share of strings on a universal scale. However, this idea seems to take away the improbability linked with such types of conspiracy theories. It can be compared to the notion of cancer that infects the overall consciousness.

 

 

According to the conspiracy theorists, the Illuminati is an ominous group of secret power brokers, who have been members of the league for several centuries. They are wealthy, famous, powerful and influential. Among them is the U.S President Thomas Jefferson, and the rapper Jay-Z who is known as the spirit master.

 

As the other sources say, the Illuminati conspiracy has manipulated many governments, stock markets, popular restaurants and other establishments. They also have something to do with the energy prices and assassinations. Many also believed that they murdered those famous celebrities who declined their offers of joining and the ones who were members but tried to get away from the group. They use tricks to deceive the vast number of people. They treacherously persuaded many to participate in their secret rituals that are commonly based on the ancient Egyptian mysticism like those hand signs and emblazoned symbolism.

 

 

It’s fairly easy to get in the frame of thinking that they are creating this secret group to control the world. Why? Because they do have money and they are famous. Even in the field of politics, anyone can obtain a distinctive position in the government if you are rich and famous. The money rules the world today and it’s a very saddening fact.

Anyhow, the Illuminati to me is still obscure. I sometimes think that they are evil tyrannical autocrats that are not conscious of repercussions of the kind of life they’re living. How about you, do you believe that this group do exist?

My Spiritual Warfare

I didn’t have the desire to post last two days ago. I felt down and depressed. I felt like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. There are really times that you don’t feel well like the devil is attacking your soul making it so melancholic like you don’t understand what’s your purpose in life and that’s exactly how I felt the other day. I lost my motivation to work and to plan for my future because I felt like was on the verge of removing the last vestiges of my loveliness and sanity.

 

To the extent of my sadness, I walked through my room and locked the door. I hid there and cried out. I prayed harder for whatever that makes me depressed. My only refuge if I am in an instant when there’s no more hope left is my Savior, my Protector, my Almighty Father in heaven. Since I gave my life to Him, I experience fullness, I experience joy, I experience love. But somehow, the evil attacks me most of the time. I have gone through a lot of storms in my life last year and until this time but prayer has always been my shield to go through all of my struggles, to overcome those nightmares and defeat the devil.

In my life, I experienced moments in mountaintops and in deep valleys of despair but all through it, Jesus never forsake me. He held my hand and picked my broken pieces. He healed my sickly soul and restored it. He led me back to the path of righteousness. Although there are times that I’m in pain and agonies, all I hear was His voice calling out my name. He calmed the storm in me, He has answered my prayers but sometimes He says “No” but it doesn’t mean that He doesn’t love me, it means that He’s keeping me away from harm because in His arms, no man can harm me and that’s what love is all about.

7.8 Magnitude Earthquake Hit Ecuador

 

Ecuador specifically Pedernales city was razed by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. This has killed 235 people and left the city very devastated. Millions of properties are damaged. This city has 40,000 inhabitants and it was reported that 80 percent of the population and infrastructure were damaged. The quake lasted for an hour and the rescue team wasn’t able to get through because of the rescinded roads. By its own means, the inhabitants disband their own town.

 

During the quake, the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa was not in the country. He was in Vatican and he went back right away to help his people and give them relief goods and anything they need.

Both north and south of the site epicentre were seen being incredibly damaged. Another remarkable damage incurred by the quake to the country is the bridge situated in Guayaquil, south which is the biggest city of the country. There are also reported numbers of landslides that caused delay in the rescue and caused accidents to other rescuers and even residents.

The airport control tower was also been so destroyed, this tower is located at the coastal city of Manta. In the country’s largest city, Guayaquil, south, fell a bridge. There have been numerous landslides, which 1,557 people were wounded as evaluated by Vice President Jorge Glas.

This is not the official list yet, there are more in the next few hours because they haven’t dug in the grounds yet for buried people inside and haven’t been rescued.

There were many people who are still traumatized this time. On 1979l Ecuador was also shaken by a high-intensity earthquake because Nazca plate and the South American plate clashed together.

The most affected area of the country is Pedernales, which is the nearest beach place of Quito. It was indeed very catastrophic for the place. The electricity was shut off and phones don’t have signal.

Brazil: The Next Target of Islamic Terrorist?

Brazil became agitated after they heard that they’re the next target for the Islamic terrorist attack. As we can recall, Paris was being massacred by the Islamic group of terrorist which killed 90 people and caused traumatic experience to 130 victims who were there in that event. Not many people know that right after the attack, one of the members of the Islamic State terrorist group tweeted on Twitter threatening Brazil to be their next target. That member was also seen in famous ISIS videos.

This guy is Maxime Hauchard. His post says that,“Brazil, you are our next target. We can attack this shit country.”

This terrorist group keeps recruiting many people from around the world to join them in their atrocious vision which is to kill innocent people especially the westerners. It is even reported that they already have many people recruited from Brazil. Because of the increased members of ISIS from this certain country, Luiz Alberto Sallaberry, who is the director of the Department of Counterterrorism of ABIN said that there will be great chances for it to be attacked. He confirmed that the guy who posted on twitter is a terrorist member.

The director also said on TV’s and magazines explaining the strategies that the ISIS use to recruit people especially the younger ones. He also added that this terrorist profile is the one who made lots of threats to French people. This is really very dreadful and threatening for countries not just Brazil.

The Department of Counterterrorism of ABIN is strengthening its task force in every country especially those that have already been attacked by this group and those who have become so fearful of the possible attacks. This is to prevent the attacks last year in France and recently in Belgium to happen again. This terrorist named Maxime usually appeared on the videos killing people inhumanly.

PiliPinas Debates 2016: Who Has the Guts to be the Next Philippine President?

 

As the temperature of the sun rises, the crowd waiting for the most awaited presidential debate of the Philippines is also getting thicker. The answer to who will be the next president of the country will be answered real soon. This event is the most important part of the candidacy of the presidential candidates. It gives the people the chance to ask questions to any of them referring to their platforms or their plans on improving the Philippines.

abs

The event will happen at 5:45 p.m sa ABS-CBN CH 2, ANC HD, DZMM TeleRadyo, news.abs-cbn.com at TFC. If you’re not at home this time, then feel free to watch the livestream online if ever you have a Wi-Fi connection wherever you are right now. This is important that we are updated of the current events in our country because each of us contributes to the future of our economy.

Mayor Rodrigo Duterte remains the number one presidential bet in the survey and I see a lot of profiles on Facebook showing support for Duterte. But no, I won’t follow the crowd. I have my own prerogative and I will vote for whoever I think is the perfect fit for the country.

I didn’t have any interest in politics at all and I never cared about who runs for this and that because I am so dismayed with the previous candidates who governed the country. The upsurge in criminal records is still there, the high rate of the OFW’s who work as Domestic Helper is still there. The next president should be able to make the country self-sufficient without having to send poor people in the rich countries to serve the rich bosses. And I realize that it is a part of our citizenship and we should participate in whatever is happening in the country to be called a Filipino.

O Shopping (0.7%) vs. Shop Tv (0.6%)

With the overall rating, ABS-CBN is still unbeatable. It’s no wonder why more and more celebrities from GMA network and TV 5 are moving to ABS-CBN. But this shouldn’t be the reason for the lower rating networks to be discouraged. This should serve as their motivation to improve more and go beyond what ABS-CBN has achieved. This is quite challenging for them, isn’t it?
