This is significant progress on my Pincha Mayurasana. I noticed that warming up with downward facing dog and dolphin pose helped me a lot advancing to Pincha Mayurasana.

To do the pose, the arms should be parallel with other and make sure to press the ground with both palms and elbows. Always feel that strong back and core while doing the pose. Staring at an object between your hands or at one of your thumbs will help you maintain balance.

The Breadwinner

It is common among Filipino families that one member serves as the breadwinner. One who sustains the needs of the family. One who finds joy in fulfilling their wants. If you are the breadwinner of your family, this article is for you. If you are not, read on and be a change-maker to one.

Although your current earnings could be enough to cover your family’s day-to-day expense, nobody knows what will happen in the future. Knock-on-wood, you may suffer from illness that will displace you from working. If this happens, it will leave your family in trouble. They will not only be burdened in finding money to sustain their daily living but also be burdened of the additional costs for your medication. This situation brings in a huge chunk of responsibility on your shoulder. At the same time, it brings fearsome thoughts. If you are a single parent, it probably doubles or triples the burden.

You do not have to live with these fearsome thoughts. There is a lot of insurance companies out there who are willing to help you. I am actually quite bothered why not all people see the value of the services that these companies offer. Perhaps, the common notion is that it is just another unnecessary expense. I, myself, witnessed people pooling for money due to someone’s illness. Believe me, you can avoid this from happening in your own family. Make a wise decision. Not only for yourself but for your family.

Having an insurance helps in alleviating burdensome thoughts and gives you peace of mind. On top of that, it secures the people who you love the most. Do not live in fear. Live a bright future. Your tiny investments today will pay you and your family more in the future.

For those who are reading this, I would like to make an assessment. Do you or any family member have insurance policies? If yes, what kind of policy and how did it help them so far?
