It’s no secret that women play significant parts in driving today’s society, juggling multiple roles at home, work, and everything in between. But don’t just take our word for it! Meet these five hard-working Filipinas and learn how they manage to slay every day:
Keith, The Fitness Gal
Health and fitness buff Keith works as an eCommerce Key Account Manager. On staying on top of her game, she shares that it’s all about finding balance, whether it’s work or personal life. She makes sure that she eats healthy and clean meals, and makes it a point to exercise after work for a few minutes every day. She says that the secret to her success is consistency in keeping her mind and body in perfect shape.
Sure, it’s not always easy to summon the energy to get up and move for the rest of us, but if you want to pursue fitness like Keith, try working out in this Lotus Activewear Seamless Sport Leggings and Under Armour Women's UA Vanish Seamless Mid Sports Bra. You’ll feel like you can conquer anything!
Leya, The Fashion and Beauty Queen
Brand Manager Leya’s strengths do not just lie in the campaigns you see online; she’s also an avid fashion enthusiast. Despite the demands of her current work-from-home setup, she makes sure to keep her looks casual yet stylish. She swears by these comfy shorts from Bench and pairs these with a basic top.
After a busy day of meetings, e-mails, and alignments with her team and partners, she treats her skin to a generous application of L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Moisturizer Serum before going to bed. Leya shares that this helps keep her skin glowing.
While every woman has her own beauty and self-care routine, it’s advisable to try products that help satisfy varying skin types and needs. Reward yourself when you try Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Facial Oil or Garnier Light Complete Vitamin C Serum.
Pat, The Relaxation and Wellness Guru
For many of us, creating a calming workspace at home has helped boost our productivity since we started remote work. For HR Manager Pat, she complements the relaxing ambiance of her home office with her trusty calming oil roller. She says that this product helps her take a step back when she’s feeling overwhelmed and helps her keep calm so she can move forward with her tasks while maintaining her own inner balance.
Pia, The Homemaker
To live a happy and successful life, it is said that there are three things one must focus on: know what you want and where you want to go, take action everyday towards your goal, and never give up. In this regard, Pia, co-founder of lifestyle brand Viajecito, does a great job in running towards her business goals while caring for her family as a mom and homemaker. Now that she’s working from home, she’s able to get in touch with her creative side by sprucing up her space with comfy linens that help boost her relaxation. She also swears by Viajecito Splashkits to make for next-level home organization.
Girlie, The Pet Parent
For some, passion and inspiration are found in the people we love: family, friends, and also in our respective communities. But for others like Executive Assistant Girlie, fulfillment can be discovered in caring for pets, too! While her job can feel challenging and overwhelming at times, she says that spending time with her cats Nora and Peping and dogs Kimi and Kaipo helps her recharge her mind and body. This makes long days and even all-nighters worth it, she shares. She makes sure that her fur babies are entertained at home with toys they can play with like this cat scratcher.
These Filipinas inspire us to defy odds and power through everything, day in and day out. Like them, you can power through anything the day has to throw at you, whether you’re working a 9 to 6 job or planning on starting your own business.
