How do we help kids cope up with the changes resulting from Covid-19 virus outbreak?


Who wouldn't love being thrown up in the air as a kid?

Do you ever have experience being lifted up in the air by one of your parents as a kid? My mom used to do it back when I was still a child. I remember the feeling of being thrown up in the air [exactly just the way it was shown in the photo above] and it felt like I was a superhero who can fly even for a minute. Those bonding moments I had with my mom as a kid were truly special. 

Let's face it, kids will always be kids. They like active playing such as rough games most especially younger boys. Children in general love to roll around, jump and climb. And in times like this that almost half of the world's population are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, kids also develop anxiety, worry, and fears especially since most schools temporarily had to close down and they had to contend themselves to study via online classes. They can't even go out and much more socialize with children their age. 

Children love rowdy play that can distract work from home.. 

Children may no longer have that sense of structure and proper stimulation needed by their young minds. They have less opportunity to be with their friends and get that social support that is intrinsic for their healthy mental well-being.

A tumble mat is so much better than any playmat because you can be assured of your kids' safety.

 I read somewhere that children respond well to stress in various ways: they can become more clingy, withdrawing, angry or agitated, even to the point of bedwetting. As parents, we can respond to our children's reactions in a supportive way. By listening to their concerns and giving them the necessary TLC and our full attention. We need to speak kindly to them and reassuring them that everything will be okay in spite of the health crisis. 

Dr. Joselyn Eusebio, a developmental psychologist recommends keeping a regular routine with your children while avoiding being away from them. You can start by playing with them on a tumble mat. Most children love to do cartwheels, somersaults, flips, and twists. If your kids are into gymnastics, they'll find tumbling really easy to get into. You can start by learning how it feels to perform simple tricks on the floor. Then, as their techniques and confidence grow, you'd be surprised they can perform amazing sequences soon. Of course, you don't need to be a professional gymnast to enjoy the air tumble mat. You can always have it for fun and just go with the flow. 

Tumble Mat

Gymnastics is a great activity for kids. As a parent, you need to keep your kids fit and you will help them burn off your kids' extra energy into something fun, exciting, and creative if you will have your very own tumble mat at home. It will keep them fit and active amid the pandemic. Gymnastics is fantastic for helping children gain strength and take risks ultimately which they can use later in life.

Kids can learn so much and develop motor skills with a tumble mat


The Effects of Covid-19 in the Philippine Real Estate


We are all facing an invisible enemy. We are at war with the Coronavirus or COVID-19 which seemed to have plagued the world with its omnipresence in our lives and media coverage concerning it. It has changed our lives radically without ever revealing itself directly. The pandemic is now truly what we can call a global phenomenon. Imagine it has affected 2.6 billion people (roughly a third of the world’s population) as we are all living under some lockdown or quarantine. We are all asked to stay home as offices and shops temporarily close and a small percentage of working individuals are instructed to work from home.


COVID-19 had changed the way we go out as we need to follow specific health and safety protocols as well as be cautious of social distancing. Wearing of face mask & shields, bringing of alcohol or hand sanitizers have become a must for everyone. This is what “the new normal” is all about.


Admittedly, the rapid spread of the dreaded Coronavirus disease of COVID-19 has thrown a big curveball on most professional industries. Who would’ve thought how the Covid-19 pandemic would turn out to be one of the most challenging crisis the entire humanity would face? No one had the slightest idea, we had probably underestimated Covid and thought it would just be as simple as having a flu virus. But now that we knew the severity of the Covid virus with its different variants, it was staggering and at the same time devastating because it has brought the whole world to its knees. It has made the rich and the poor equal. It has stirred uncertainties and confusion. It has overwhelmed the frontliners in the healthcare system. It has eradicated established pioneer industries and businesses we thought would last forever. Indeed, COVID-19 disrupted every known aspect of people’s lives, the government, businesses, and economies worldwide.


 Now, how bleak is the Philippine real estate after it became uncertain as the pandemic halted much business, travels were restricted as well as non-essential activities. The workforce was also put temporarily on hold and some of which eventually led to permanent closures. There were many properties that bore the biggest blow out of this pandemic. Amid all the drastic changes as well as learning all the lessons the hard way, real estate stakeholders and experts have long been eyeing recovery. The Filipinos are more than hopeful for more opportunities to be able to bounce back in the next coming months.

Inquirer Property recently polled industry experts who shared their insights and forecasts as well as vital key points on how we would all rise from this pandemic. According to them, recovery in real estate shall return once the consumers and investors gain back their confidence. Investor confidence shall further boost both the residential and office sub-sectors. The COVID-19 pandemic sabotaged an upward trajectory for the real estate industry. The sector ground a halt in March of 2020 and is getting its bearings only in late 2020.
