2012-May-15. Had an afternoon off so Jam and I decided we take the kids down South to Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna for fresh air, lots of greenery, and an unobstructed view of the sky.
Do kids these days know what a seesaw is? Do they even know what it is like to play in a real park?
There are no more proper public parks in Metro Manila.
Viruses, bacteria, mold & mildew beware! Here comes a whopping 14-inch (35 cm) Lysol disinfectant mega death spray. All 586.5 grams (net weight) of it is in a refreshing Spring Waterfall scent.
More and more studies by reputable institutions confirm or prove something your grandma/mother has been telling you from the start: going to work at night is bad for your health.
Kinda late in catching up on this, Gizmodo (one of my regular reads) today published an article, “Working the Night Shift is Hazardous to Your Health“, stating that;
A new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now confirms previous theories that being on the night shift is actually an occupational hazard. The findings show that circadian disruption, when a person’s circadian rhythms split off from the regular day-night cycle, cause key metabolic hormones to act crazy.
For instance: When your body’s no longer sleeping when it thinks it should be, it stops producing as much leptin, a hormone that signals a body to stop eating. It also releases more cortisol, a stress hormone that’s been linked to high blood pressure and obesity.
So, if you happen to see me stressed and putting on weight, then it could be because I have been working nights again. Remember: No amount of extra pay (what they call, “night differential” in the call center industry) is worth your health.
