5 craft projects you can make in your free time

5 craft projects you can make in your free time 

Even though we’re always kept busy by work or school, one might worry that you could get bored and unproductive during the weekends or your free time. You might even feel that you want to stay as busy as possible.

There’s nothing wrong with that, as it’s always a good idea to keep yourself engaged—you never know when your productivity might come in handy. You might even discover something that you could turn into a new hobby or business! One way to stay engaged is to get into craft projects during your free time, which is great in keeping your mind and hands active—you can do it for yourself, or you can do it to start on a new path for a business or get new skills for a job.

Here are five ideas for crafts to do:

1.    DIY projects
Are you a fan of little inventions and innovations? You might like to try doing DIY projects at home, which is a wide category of small carpentry, repairing, and even engineering projects that aren’t too difficult. There’s a DIY project for every interest and need, and basic skills that you pick up here may go a long way in other places.

2.    Programming
While this isn’t a traditional craft project in the sense of the term, a little programming and coding know-how may be beneficial for future career projects. You can start with developing websites, maybe even a small app, and if you get into it long enough, you could even craft some useful hardware and software.

3.    Leatherworking
Want a skill that you could turn into a business? Leather goods are always in style, so it’s not a bad idea to try your hand at leatherworking. You’ll need quite a few tools and materials to get started, but it’s not too difficult to find—once you get going, you’ll likely create some beautiful things that many people may want.

4.    Scentmaking
One craft that isn’t very difficult to do is the art of making scents, whether it’s for perfume or for household use. All you need are the oils that make up the scents and bottles to mix them in, and you have your own homemade fragrances. What’s even better is this can also be a home business, as who doesn’t like to smell good?

5.    Sewing

All you’ll need are threads, the right fabric, and a reliable sewing machine to get started.

Strengthening the SAFEwash Movement: Safeguard provides PHP 5 million worth of products to schools

Procter & Gamble is equipping public schools with handwashing facilities and Safeguard products to further promote the Wash in Schools initiative.

Procter & Gamble’s Safeguard, Manila Water Foundation, and the DepEd School District representatives gathered last May 4, 2022 in Microtel by Wyndham Hotel in Quezon City to take the SAFEwash Movement to new heights. Present in the turnover event were Jeune San Juan from P&G Safeguard, the Manila Water Foundation representatives led by Reginald Andal, and DepEd School Division Heads from the 17 partner locations.

Photo of Safeguard products being donated

The event is Safeguard and Manila Water Foundation’s way of further strengthening the SAFEwash Movement’s goal – to protect the future of the Philippines by protecting the teachers who hone it. On top of donating for pilot face-to-face classes, Safeguard Philippines donated PHP 5million more worth of hand soaps and sanitizers to partner schools.

In acknowledging teachers as frontliners, P&G Communications Leader Jeune San Juan said that “This time around, however, we realized that it’s about time to recognize the new frontliners as we open up the country once again. In line with our mission to help protect frontliners, we are also extending our support to our dearest educators, who are also frontliners in education and in many other ways.”

Attendees following the proper handwashing demonstration

As school reopenings near, the attendees reviewed the safety guidelines and handwashing protocols that the schools will be implementing for the safety of the teachers, students, and the entire school community.

“We have placed priority in providing handwashing facilities to 285 schools across the country. With this, we are extending our support by providing 5 million worth of hygiene products as the classes start and schools are used for other national activities, so that teachers are safeguarded from infectious germs that can cause diseases,” says Jeune San Juan.

With active participation coming from the partner school districts and the continuous efforts of Safeguard, our SAFEwash Movement will push us closer to a safe reopening of schools so we can continue honing the future of the country.

Flu season is coming: Are you and your loved ones prepared?

 

Flu season is coming: Are you and your loved ones prepared?
Medical expert shares ways to stay healthy and protected from the virus

 

Just like that, summer is over, which could only mean one thing: flu season is just around the corner.

As COVID-19 lockdown restrictions continue to loosen up, people are taking the opportunity to go out more often. Many have gone back to work. There are even schools in some areas that have returned to face-to-face classes.

While we are currently feeling the heat of summer, the rainy season will soon take over. It has been observed that during this wet period the highest cases of flu are being recorded.

“After going through waves of a grueling pandemic, taking millions of people by surprise, the last thing we need is to head on to a flu season unarmed. As early as now, we must be ready and prepare for any and all eventuality,” said Dr. Donald Josue, Vaccines Medical Director at GSK.

To make sure the flu virus doesn’t catch you off guard, here are some of the measures you can do today to prepare for the upcoming flu season:

Update your flu vaccines
Making sure you get your updated flu vaccines significantly lowers the risk of contracting the virus. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) a flu shot is recommended annually to ensure individuals are protected from the latest flu virus strains.

Be mindful of social distancing
Because of much relaxed restrictions, it’s easy to forget that we are still very much in the middle of a pandemic. This means we should continue practicing social distancing whenever possible. Just like the virus that causes COVID-19, wearing face masks, keeping a distance from other people, or avoiding going to crowded places are few of the easiest, simplest ways to lessen the chances of catching the flu virus.

Keep your immune system in shape with a healthy diet
According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), you can boost your resistance by having a balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle. By giving your body the right nutrients and exercising regularly, you allow your immune system to perform at peak physical condition. This, in turn, enables your body to resist any symptoms that may arise.

Flu vs COVID-19 symptoms
The flu and COVID-19 share many similar symptoms, which makes it easy to confuse both of them. First thing to do should you feel anything untoward is to not panic. Both flu and COVID-19 can have fever, colds, and cough as symptoms. But the latter can also cause fatigue, loss of smell, and loss of taste. Always consult with a medical professional to make sure you get the proper diagnosis and treatment.

This flu season, make sure you’ve got the leg up against the flu virus. Remember to wash your hands regularly, boost your immune system, avoid large crowds, and get that flu vaccine as soon as possible, because keeping yourself safe is the first step to making sure your loved ones and the community you live in are safe too.

This year’s theme, Feel Seen, highlights the value of embracing one’s self-worth and achieving one’s full potential in order to create the change we want to see in the world. 

The virtual summit was attended by women from diverse backgrounds, all with a unique story to tell.  AXA Philippines Head of Emerging Customers Meek Villanueva sat down for the “Stand Up, Feel Seen” forum and discussed how to navigate one’s personal and professional life and become empowered while finding your own voice and purpose. 

“Everybody has their own journey. You don’t have to go the same way because others follow a similar path. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. It’s not going to be easy, but as long as we have the courage to follow our heart and intuition, we will find our purpose and the path that will lead us to success,” Villanueva shared.

With 19 years of experience in various companies in the financial sector in Singapore and the Philippines, Villanueva also shared how working with AXA Philippines, a company that values and promotes diversity and inclusion, has helped her achieve professional success.

“It is also very important and helpful to have a very welcoming workspace like AXA in which all employees, especially women, are treated with value, dignity, and respect, where individual differences are encouraged and celebrated. Aside from building my trust in my own capabilities, having a supportive space in AXA also really helped me to take risks and seize more opportunities,” Villanueva said.

Apart from creating a diverse and inclusive work culture, AXA’s purpose is to act for human progress by protecting what matters. With protection and health being the core of its business, AXA not only helps individuals, businesses, and societies to thrive as a partner they can rely on, but is also committed to acting as a force for the collective good. The company also aims to promote inclusive insurance for vulnerable populations, which was why its Emerging Customers unit was created. Villanueva shared that AXA Emerging Customers’ vision is to make insurance accessible, affordable, and relevant to 4 billion low income individuals around the world who remain vulnerable to unforeseen events.

Iza Calzado, She Talks Asia co-founder and wellness advocate, hosted the event and offered attendees meaningful insights centered on the event theme.

“We get so lost in living our lives, pleasing other people that we often forget to pay attention to the first thing that we are responsible for and that is ourselves, our identity… It’s so important to let ourselves be seen and heard and focus on the things that make us the happiest version of ourselves,” said Calzado.

AXA Philippines continues to partner with various women-led organizations like She Talks Asia to highlight the importance of empowering women and fighting discrimination and biases. 

Even beyond Women’s Month, AXA continues to support gender equality, helping empower women to continue to defy stereotypes and #BreakTheBias. AXA Philippines supports women empowerment as evidenced by its workforce made up of 62% women.
