Stress is an inevitable consequence of fast-paced work environments. For mothers and homemakers who juggle responsibilities at work and at home, stress levels are doubled.
The closing lecture in ASCOF for Kids and The Parenting Emporium’s series of classes held recently sought to spark people’s awareness on natural alternatives for health remedies and on the total wellness of moms and their families.
ASCOF is the country’s leading natural cough remedy, while TPE, located in New Manila, is a store and social enterprise that provides a venue for learning and support in creating communities that foster better parenting.
The enlightening discussion was led by life coach and makeup artist Ning Tadena, who underscored the importance of changing one’s overall perspective and boosting one’s positive energy in order to avoid stress.
In her talk, entitled “How to Release Toxic Stress,” Tadena explained how stress is a cause of many illnesses and misunderstandings.
“Even your relationships suffer when you live in a toxic environment,” she said. “But in everything that we do, we have two ways to look at it—it can either stress us or stretch us.”
She continued, “For example, you can be stressed by traffic, but it can also stretch your imagination, your patience, your strategy, and time management. The perspective that I always want to impart to people is to have a growth mindset.”
Tadena also pointed out that stress can show up in the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social aspects of one’s life, and thus can be a cause of disease.
She also identified what she considers the three most toxic emotions—resentment, rejection, and regret. Then she countered these with the three “most nourishing” ones—forgiveness, acceptance, and gratitude.
Tadena believes that we can live stress-free and healthier lives by nourishing our mind, body, and heart and getting rid of the toxins in them.
“And part of nourishing your body,” Tadena asserted, “is eating healthy and using natural and organic products like ASCOF for Kids.”
Known for its natural and organic properties, ASCOF for Kids is made from 100 percent organically grown lagundi leaves, and undergoes a stringent manufacturing process. Being the very first natural cough remedy launched in the market 22 years ago, ASCOF Lagundi is considered the pioneer in advocating alternative medicines for consumers.
ASCOF for Kids assistant brand manager Kaye Racaza said that with the help of its partners like TPE, “ASCOF ensures that moms will confidently take the first step in choosing the natural alternatives over the synthetic/chemical options in the market.”
Among the influential moms who attended the cap-off event were Tina Rodriguez, Riki Flo Reyes, Sheila De Asis, Gabrielle Janvier, Irina Otmakhova, Mafae Belasco, Jopay Zamora, Liz Aliwalas, Jane Cheng, and Jaya Crisostomo.
