Do more!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 —
There is something incredibly alluring about the carpe diem lifestyle. We see it all around us: a 70-year-old marathon runner, backpackers traveling for months on end, couples skydiving on dates. These individuals never settle for boredom or complacency, rather than wait for things to happen, they make things happen. They do the things they love, the things that matter to them; taking in the best that the world has to offer.

This is precisely what the Rexona philosophy is all about – simply, to Do:More. It’s a challenge posed to everyone: be open to possibilities, keep busy, seek adventure, go the extra mile and push limits. Because to do more is to squeeze the best out of life, savoring its sweetness to the last drop.

Attending this event opened my heart and mind to DO MORE! To not settle for mediocrity. To live my life to the fullest. To live intensely like everyday is my last!

I've always been scared to take risks but this 2013, I promised myself to DO MORE ADVENTURES! I've been traveling every month since January 2012. Going to new places. Discovering new things. May it be a local or international destination, the goal is to explore, indulge, and learn.

I want to go to Japan and Europe this year or next year! :) What's your dream destination?

I am a girl consumed by wanderlust. My friends know how much I love traveling. My goal in life is to find a job that will make me travel NONSTOP! I truly believe that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. Do you agree with me? :)

INSPIRE. Such a big word, right? I've always had this secret dream (well it's not so secret anymore:p) to become an inspiration to people. Through this blog, I think I'm able to inspire my readers (crosses fingers!). So imagine my elation when you guys tweet or email me sweet messages! I truly appreciate it!

DREAM BIG. I've always liked this quote: "work hard, dream harder, pray hardest". I believe that with God all things are possible! All your dreams will be achieved if you just put your faith and trust in HIM.

DO WORKOUT or SPORTS! I've been a fitness addict for months now. There was a time I was into a lot of sports (Soccer, swimming, badminton) but I stopped :( I am not getting any younger so I need to take care of my body. Luckily, I'm surrounded by friends who love working out so they influenced me to become active again! 

I'm joining my friends in their basketball practice today! I love soccer and swimming but it's always good to try something new, right? :)

A lot of my readers are emailing me asking about my workouts. I currently do barre3 (yoga, pilates and ballet), muay thai and boxing. With a bit of TRX too! My weight now is 90lbs. I try to maintain it by dieting (not hardcore dieting since I love food hahaha) :p

Get fit. Exercise. Stretch. Dance. Jump. Be active. Jog. Run. Get lean. Be healthy!

EAT WELL! Cheat days are fine. Don't deprive yourself. Just make sure to eat healthy. Balanced diet is the key!

This month Rexona recognizes two individuals – or Doers – who embody this lifestyle and serve as perfect examples of what it means to do more: Bianca Gonzalez and Phil Younghusband.

Bianca is the ultimate doer – a TV and media personality who uses her celebrity position to empower the youth and promote education. A social advocate and proactive citizen, she was named one of 2012’s Young Global Shapers by the World Economic Forum. 

She challenges herself to become FEARLESS this 2013! I like it! :) Go Bianca!

Phil is—ask virtually anyone in the country and he/she will know who he is. His face graces billboards every few hundred meters along the highway. Of course, this is for good reason. Having previously played with the prestigious Chelsea FC, the British-Filipino plays for the Philippine Azkals and the Loyola Meralco Sparks Football Club.

The endorsers with the Unilever team!

Congrats Phil and Bianca! Well-deserved ;)

With maximum confidence to do more, nothing should hold you back from pursuing your ambitions and aspirations. Climb that mountain, complete that 5-mile run, do something you never thought you’d be able to do – surprise yourself. Because to lead a more physically active, socially connected, and emotionally engaged life is to seize the day.

Words to live by!

I challenge everyone to DO MORE! :)

Thank you Rexona, Unilever and Bridges PR!
