Finding the Right Mix

004a1

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.”
— Alicia Keys

Life is not as easy as it used to be and we now all find ourselves always trying to catch up with the pace of life. We often find ourselves attempting to balance our career, hobbies, relationships, and aspirations, but how do we know if we have the right mix?

Sometimes we feel it in our gut, but other times, it’s our daily regimens that tell us if we have the right mix. If the day starts off smoothly, that’s an instant energy booster for us to get through anything. So, start your day right with Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix.

Optimo offers a premium and healthy coffee mix sweetened with Suchero instead of the usual chemical or artificial sweetener we often come across. The Suchero coco sap in Optimo is a branded coconut sap sweetener that is drier than most coconut sap sweeteners, allowing it to have a longer shelf life. It is also a 100% natural and organic coconut sap sweetener that creates the right mix with three herbal extracts, namely Gingko Biloba, Grape Seed, and Green Tea.

The strong brew of Optimo is enhanced by the caramel taste of the Suchero coco sap. As sweet as Optimo is with this healthy sweetener, Optimo doesn’t lead you to a sugar crash. The sweetener gives you the flavor you want, but with its “slow burning” properties, the energy released by the coconut sap is distributed over a longer amount of time, allowing your blood sugar to remain stable. Thus, Optimo is an ideal coffee drink for even the healthiest of health buffs.

Additional health benefits in the Optimo 3+3 Coffee Mix can be found in the three herbs present in the mix; the first being the Gingko Biloba herb known as the “mind and memory extract” which, as studies have showed, improves mental performance and mood. The second herb is the Green Tea herb which is recognized for its anti-oxidant properties as well as the increase of one’s metabolism. Lastly, there’s the Grape Seed herb known as the “beauty” extract with concentrated amounts of Vitamin E which repairs collagen and protects your skin from sun damage.

A good spirit inside is the result of what we take in, the more positive, and healthier the better. Especially now, fast-paced and multi-faceted are the best words to describe the lifestyle of today’s youth. Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix is the Right Mix for you.

Bad Habits Shouldn’t Die Hard

Bad habits shouldn’t die hard

(Manila, Philippines) As we welcome the year of the Water Snake, we assimilate the positive energy of the Snake sign. It’s said to be the Yin to last year’s Dragon Yang, following that this year, we ought to not settle with mediocrity.

Feel-good enthusiasts agree on one thing – diet, exercise, and relaxation aren’t just a fad of 2012. A study made last year found that sitting at desks all day increases our death risk, noise pollution takes its toll on our sleeping habits, and in general, people were just working too much.

Nurturing bad habits won’t feel wrong anymore after continuously doing them. The key rests in a willingness to change and doing it now. But why do we push ourselves to change a lifestyle, train hard to lose the unflattering pounds, and switch to healthier alternatives? The need to feel good inside and out boosts confidence and improves our health. So we would want to load up on that.

Here are health and fitness trends to look out for this year, and perhaps commit to, if not all, most of them.

Find a workout that suits you best. Same with clothes and shoes, no exercise is fit for all. Search for inspiration and look for problem areas you want to change.

Heavy weight lifting for women for healthier bones and greater muscle definition is seen to take off this year. Another addition to the trend is Fitness On The Go. There are already hotels in some regions that offer space for yogis, and even workout videos for people doing cardio. San Francisco International Airport started offering yoga rooms already. But traveling or not, fitness studios have embraced the web, too, by offering online workouts.

Unwind and relax. No one can determine your threshold of a packed workweek but yourself. Find time to hit the spa once or twice a week to release stress, play sports, or just hit the movie house with the gang. With more than half of the world’s population living in urban spaces, perhaps try a nature trip for a stress antidote, because sometimes all you need is an escape from the bustle of the city.

Be a juicer. Healthy juicing is slowly making a craze, as juicing organic, raw veggies can improve your health by helping you meet your daily-recommended healthy diet. Search for a juice plan online and give it a shot. Everyone needs cleansing once in a while.

Technology and wellness. You’ve probably heard about or came across smartphone applications that are health-oriented. There are apps that help you track your calorie intake, and apps that allow you to record your exercise routines. Get the most out of technology today, for it also aids us in achieving our goals of becoming healthy.

Coconut water as refreshment? Yes, without the high-level sugar or calories. It has a hydrating benefit, which is known to be faster than regular water – thanks to its natural electrolyte-dense formula.

There are multiple brands of coconut water abroad, while Tropicana Coco Quench made its mark last year as Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines launched the first locally produced coconut water drink in Tetra Pak packaging. Tropicana Coco Quench locks in the freshness and natural benefits found in real coconut fruit, and improves its shelf life of up to 8 months.

Admittedly, kicking a bad habit is a little hard to do, but not until you finally decide to jump in and just kick it. The right dose of motivation can get anyone started. Start small, and the difference for your mind and body can go a long way.
