For many parents, kids’ tech use and their screen consumption is a big issue. Considering this, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Pediatric Society revealed in a study 10 reasons why children under 12 should not use these devices without control. According to their study, babies from 0 to 2 years old should not have any contact with the technology. From 3 years to 5 years should only use it 1 hour a day and from 6 to 18 years only 2 hours a … [Read more...]
Personal Trainers In The Pocket, Cymplified!
Why I need personal trainers I used to think that I have a pretty balanced diet. I used to think that it was okay to indulge in junk food. Since I was playing badminton and volleyball in high school; walking from building to building in college, with gym sessions in between, then back to badminton when I was working; I thought ANY food was alright. Each morning my weight resets. Now that I am in my mid 30's, the lbs. are taking up permanent residency and are difficult to evict. My … [Read more...]
Family Getaway: Jeju Island Trip Preparation, Cymplified!
I was looking forward to this trip. I also was not. One thing I was sure of is that there must be a Jeju Island trip preparation for our family. I looked forward to cooler weather since it turned sizzling summer here in the Philippines. I also looked forward to experiencing some of my family's firsts. It was our first time to travel internationally together. It was our first time to set foot on Korea. It was our first time to experience Spring. It was our first time to see Cherry Blossoms in … [Read more...]
Fabulous Freebies, Cymplified!
Note: This post contains affiliate links. I went on a downloading spree of pretty watercolor cliparts and special fonts. I confess that I have a collection of fonts, backgrounds and vector images on my laptop and hard drive. This is my reminder to clean them up. But, before I do, I added more because they're beautiful. Who knows? I might need them one day. That's how I justify it. Haha! And, they're free, so why not? :-) One of my go-to site for downloading images is Creative Market. Click … [Read more...]
Online Shopping with iprice, Cymplified!
How do you purchase the things that you need and want when you are a stay-at-home-mom with very young children, and it's very rare that you go out by yourself? And if you do, you limit your time so you could be home at the earliest chance possible? a. You ask your husband. b. You go online shopping. Most of the time I choose letter b. I do not want to inconvenience my hubby. ;-) I know that I said that I plan to own less and create more this year. In fact, I have already given away … [Read more...]
Hands Free And Connected, Cymplified!
Unless one works and lives away from his immediate family, he has no excuse to be glued to the computer or the smartphone all the time. His full presence and undivided attention would be very much appreciated by those who are with him, by his loved ones. The video below is a great reminder for me, and hopefully for you as well, to let go of that gadget for a few minutes and be all there for your parents, your kids, your friends. The video calls on us to disconnect to connect. In line with … [Read more...]
Uncovering God’s Word, Cymplified!
My word for this year is shine. One way I want to shine is to read the Bible each day to fuel me to be a better follower of Jesus Christ. How could I shine and reflect Jesus if I don't read and apply God's Word, my guidance, to my life? I am thankful to Pastor @RickWarren for sharing this application I could use to subscribe to devotionals that would encourage me to read the Bible every day. This app is called the YouVersion. It has a myriad of Bible translations and languages. It allows me to … [Read more...]
