Different people… Different strokes. Each has his own motivation to move forward where they want to go.
But what is common to people who are highly-motivated is that they the same people who are so busy with many things and yet still have the time and energy to do so much.

Thinking of how to get back in shape? Or wanting more than your usual fitness regimen?
Well, if you happen to be near Quezon City or willing to go there, then come September 30, the Medicard Philippines, Inc., Eton Centris and Meta Fit coaches teamed up for the season 4 of Medicard Meta Fit Fitness Boot Camp.
This is a fitness bootcamp that encourages everyone to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle…
I used to find that having four hours of sleep each day is good already a luxury. Those were the days that I was still working in broadcast media when working for almost four to five days before having a short off from work.
And at some point, I believed that my body clock is fit to work that way.
However, after a few years, fatigue, stress and lack of sleep started to take its toll on me. That was when I appreciated every single hour to be added on my sleep.
Little did I know that my “abusive” behaviour of not lying down properly and getting a comfy bed when I was still working can have a big effect on my health. I was young and foolish.
Looking back, I would have not deprived myself of proper sleep and proper resting position in a nice bed. Because there is no replacement for a good night’s rest.
And just recently, in a talk by a sleep specialist during the Uratex event introducing the Kramer family, I was reminded again, of how I am continually depriving myself of its proper rest – SLEEP.
The Top 6 notes to remind myself (and you as well) of how to properly get a good night’s sleep are:
- Turn off any artificial source of light within the room. Our body has its natural bio rhythm that follows day-night routine. Day for activities and night for rest.
- Stay away from any electronic gadgets or equipment (TV, mobile phone, computer, tablets, etc.) that can keep our attention focus to it two hours before bedtime.
- No drinking or taking of caffeine, sweets and carbs a few hours before bedtime.
- Keep a clear mind, conscience before sleeping.
- Exercise in the morning not in the evening.
- Make sure that your mattress, pillows or any beddings are very comfortable for you.
That is why, I tried to recall myself of my attitude and mindset towards sleeping. And as I look back, many things are common for me to have a good night’s sleep – and most of which are within our control.
There few common factors I remember to have been part of my fruitful sleeping.
- I used to have at least 8 hours of sleep.
- I was not tensed nor in a rush to accomplish things. I was always in a state of calmness
- I used to play basketball in the morning
- I did not have so much gadgets (iPhone, Macbook, iPad) beside me before I go to sleep. Plus, there were no social networking sites and unlimited texting. Lol!
- I had comfortable mattresses to lay my body into.
I remember that I used to have a Uratex mattress starting my teens (17 years old to be exact). That came with the bed that my parents bought for me. Then, came my early fatherhood, wherein, the same bed is what I used to sleep at together with my son.
I even remember my son jumping over it. It took quite a beating from son, especially when I was at work. But then, it was only in the mid of 2016, when finally, I had to send goodbye to it and hand it down to my cousin.
I switched to airbed, thinking it was a better choice for bed, as far as space, affordability and portability is concerned.
But after only a few days, my back started to tell me I made a wrong choice. So, after sometime, I bought a mattress, and so, it was Uratex again.
Often times we try to think of so many things when it comes to good sleep. As for me, it is just how comfortable the bed is, well ventilated or air conditioned room,
So, as years pass by, it is the same for my family and I to buy Uratex for mattresses. That’s why, when my Lola arrived last July on her short stay here in the Philippines, I bought a firmly comfortable mattress for her. And you guessed it right, it is a Uratex.
That’s why, as my fiancee (Cristelle) and I planned on some things, there are a few priorities that we have to put on top of everything once we get married and live together.
For us, it is an “investment” on our part, without compromise. Here are the priorities according to importance:
- Bedroom – bed, air condition, lights
- Bathroom – shower, toilet, tub
And for us, after trying for more than 20 minutes of sitting and lying down on one Uratex Hamptons, we are both convinced that as for the comfort and size of the bed, we are pretty much certain that we will be getting the Hamptons next year. It is the best Uratex mattress at the price we can afford so far.
I don’t know about you guys, but, I am pretty much convinced of how much a good night’s sleep affect the outcome of a man’s life in a day.
Just remember this, a great start in the morning starts as soon as having a good night’s sleep in the evening before. And your sleep starts and ends in bed. So, it must be the bed, right?

It was just this July that my Lola got back from the U.S. to do some errands here in the country. And since, I am the eldest and the only grandson living in the Philippines, I am the one taking care of my Lola while she’s here.
Never did I thought that I’d learn so much about life in such a short time taking care of my 80-year-old Lola.
At 80, my Lola still looks sharp and healthy and it seems…

If it seems that you won’t settle for just a few bites of sushi and sashimi, then, why don’t go for UNLIMITED and satisfy your cravings.
I believe that’s what most with sumo-size appetite would do, or is it just me?
Anyway, one afternoon, me and my fiancee, Cristelle Torres of GirlandBoyThing.com, went on an adventure to Makati city to look for this restaurant that offers unlimited sushi and sashimi – the Genji M – and try their offerings, especially the UNLIMITED SUSHI, ROLLS and SASHIMI.
GENJI M PLACE
Genji M, which is open daily at 11am to 10pm, is a Japanese – Korean restaurant located along Kalayaan corner Burgos St., Makati City. It is a relatively new place. As of writing time, it has been open for less than a year, and so far, it has attracted attention already from the foodies in the Metro.
We arrived in Genji M at around 5pm.
Upon entering the place, what’s noticeable is the waiting area and the counter. Not to miss the Japanese-themed decors of the resto. That time, there were only about 4 customers inside.
And so, that was what I expected it to be the whole time, being a Monday.
If you’re dining in, you can choose to stay in the common area or the private rooms. It is an advantage especially if you’re eating together with your family or friends or in a lunch / dinner meeting with client or officemates.
Below is a short clip showing how the interiors of the private rooms are in Genji M look like.
