Potatoes play a big part in the diet of Pinoys. We use them in a lot of our ulam (viands), we enjoy them for snacks like chips and fries, and they are often our preferred side dish like mashed potato.

Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS is a bunch of symptoms that even the strongest women would usually face several days before that time of the month. Feeling totally frazzled and waking up with a different kind of fatigue is a reality, a zit on the nose that wasn’t there a night before. And oh, those tender breasts plus the soreness and heaviness. Worst, you can’t stop thinking about that fudgy chocolate cake you saw on Instagram!

Exercising your way out of cancer risk

Recently, the number of hours spent on sitting is more than the hours spent on any physical work, this seems normal but this is alarming since it may result in serious health problems.

If you are a busy bee with piles of workloads on your tabletop and have no time to do some stretching, then the more reason that you need to get off the chair and let your blood flow.

Common Health Risks for People who works in BPO Companies

I started working in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Industry way back 2007. Being a college undergraduate, I had to support my family and BPO had been my only hope. I worked as a Senior Account Representative in one of the biggest telecommunication company here in the Philippines but the income will not suffice my family’s daily needs. I must say that BPO had been a great help for me and my family.

Working in a BPO will definitely help you financially. In return, you will have a lot to sacrifice. You will have sleep deprivation since you will be working at night most of the time (graveyard shifts). You will not even notice the date, as most of the accounts you will be working for have different time zones. You will turn to foods, (comfort foods) when you are burned and stressed out. You will have less and less time to exercise. As a result, many call center employees are obese.
