Top Ways To Enjoy a Happier Outlook in Life

Life has its ups and downs. Priorities change and different stages of your life take you in a variety of directions. In some cases, this can be quite exciting, as you don’t know what’s around the corner. However, for some, this is also quite daunting. In your younger years, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment and live life on a whim. But as an adult, things are very different. With bills to pay and family commitments around every corner, it’s often impossible to do anything without having a plan in place. Planning can seem like a boring concept, as who wants to be known as the one that has everything sussed out all the time. But in fact, preparing for your future even in the broader sense can help to steer your path a little more clearly to give you some peace of mind. 

Of course, there will be obstacles on the road, there always is. So giving yourself space for contingencies in a great way to weather the storms. Whatever stage you are in life, you’ll have different needs and wants. In our youth, we can afford to be a little more spontaneous but later on in life, taking charge of your future can seem a better way to plan ahead and reach your goals. 

Planning your future also doesn’t have to mean you stick to it rigidly either, as changes occur in every aspect from relationships to career choices. But how do you make the most of every opportunity so you can strive to have a happy and healthy outlook? Take a look at some of the ways to plan ahead and enjoy each moment. 

Look after both body and mind

It might seem like a simple concept, but not surprisingly, not many of us actually look after ourselves fully. Whether it’s eating lots of sweet treats or struggling with stressful situations, each can play a significant part in poor physical and mental health. The saying goes ‘everything in moderation’ but with temptation around every corner and challenges cropping up all the time, it can be easier said than done. But alas, there areas that you can explore to help you achieve a healthy body and mind. That’s starts with diet and exercise. You don’t have to run a marathon to be fitter or avoid all nice treats to have a better diet. But doing more of the healthy side of it will help to balance those indulgences. By looking after your body and mind, it will help to give you a clearer outlook on life which is ideal for planning too. 

Making tough choices

As mentioned above, life can be challenging. With these occasions, there often comes hard decisions to make. Nobody likes making tough choices but they can often help to make your life easier in the long run. In the heat of the moment, it might not seem that way, but making hard decisions makes you stronger and resilient further down the line. Tough choices come in many forms especially when relationships are involved. For example, you may have children from a previous relationship and decided that this was enough for you. But your new partner would like to have more. The decision to have a reversal vasectomy is a big one and will change your plans for the future. In other cases, a breakdown of a relationship could take your path in a different direction. At first, it might not paint your perfect outlook but adapting to a new life without this person in it could bring different opportunities and people into your life. 

Set boundaries with friends, family, and colleagues 

Many people love helping out others. But whether this is family, friends or colleagues, you need to set clear boundaries to avoid being taken advantage of. Incorporating self-care into your everyday life can help to give you time for your own pursuits. Setting boundaries can also let people know how much input you’d like to. Asking for advice is natural in any social circle, but having opinions and advice forced upon you is not, even if it is with good intentions. It’s also worth noting that you also don’t have to give people explanations for things especially if you feel uncomfortable in certain situations. It can be difficult to just say no without telling them why, but on the other hand, family and friends should appreciate that sometimes it’s just not feasible to be available all the time, no matter the excuse. 

Don’t take your work home with you

There is a culture at the moment where being busy seems to be celebrated. However, being busy doesn’t always mean you’re being productive. As our phones have constant access to emails and messages, it’s difficult to just put it down and distance yourself from it. But a study has suggested that looking at your emails outside of work is not only bad for you, but your partner too. Having a constant barrage of work commitments isn’t good for anyone, and you shouldn’t feel like you have to answer outside of your normal hours. Even if you are striving to get a promotion to further your career, it should not be expected that you work longer than contracted unless under extenuating circumstances. This is all to do with setting boundaries too, and if you start on the wrong foot, this will be a hard habit to break in the future which could affect your career and mental health.

Having a healthy and happy outlook about your future can be difficult especially when life presents lots of hurdles. By incorporating some of the above elements into your life, you could steer decisions and plans more clearly towards your own path rather than everyone else’s. It doesn’t matter what age you are, making plans is great for looking forward to a positive future. So why not give it a go and see how you could shape your outlook, and change your future for the better. 

Lea Salonga Instashines with a Musical Tribute

Lea introduces a whole new detergent world with Ariel Instashine

World-class talent Lea Salonga serenades the crowd as the new Ariel Instashine’s ambassador last August 1, Thursday, in her first-ever laundry musical that showcased her most iconic pieces of clothing and how she continues to keep them shining anew.


Globally acclaimed artist and Filipino icon, Lea Salonga, returns home this August as she stars in her first-ever laundry musical - “When I Shine With You”, telling the story of Lea’s most iconic pieces of clothing and how they keep shining anew.

To celebrate and recognize Lea’s mark in the Philippine music industry, the new Ariel Instashine produced a one-of-kind musical that brought her fans nostalgic joy, as she serenades them with a renewed rendition of a classic OPM song, ‘When I Met You’ by the Apo Hiking Society. Lea is joined by some of her students from The Voice, Leah Patricio, Esang de Torres, and Mica Becerro who pay tribute to their coach as they relive Lea’s journey through some of her memorable clothes in the past – as these clothes make their way back on stage and shine as if they are new. 

Lea Salonga is now part of Team Ariel
Ariel recently launched Lea Salonga as its newest addition to the growing Ariel family. Lea is the ambassador for the new Ariel Instashine - the next generation of detergent that promises to make old clothes look new again in just one wash. 

“We are delighted to welcome Lea Salonga to Team Ariel as we launch our New Ariel Instashine – the world’s first detergent with Power Boosters. Lea represents progressive Filipinas who 

continue to shine not just in the Philippines, but also on the global stage.” shares P&G Asia Regional Brand Communications Lead Louie Morante.

When I Shine with You is a sensorial, nostalgic journey

Every piece of clothing has a story. In this one-of-a-kind musical, Lea takes us on a journey down memory lane by telling the story behind some of the most treasured clothes in her iconic roles. With a history of more than four decades in the industry, Salonga had her first break at 9 years old when she played the title role in Annie in 1980.

Annie was my first big break. I was 9 then and felt a big mix of happy, scared and really just enjoying myself. Tt’s why I kept my dress after all these years: to remind myself of that girl who believed she could shine,” Salonga shares.

Since her debut, Salonga appeared in a number of theatre productions and had several television projects until 1989 when she was selected to play Kim in the debut production of the musical Miss Saigon in London. This role earned her the title as the first woman of Asian descent to win the Tony Award for her excellence in live Broadway Theatre in 1991.

She adds, “I had no idea how demanding it was going to be to play the role of Kim. As a teenager, I found it worth it because it pushed me to be more creative and thoughtful with my craft. That’s why I’ll always find the shirt I wore to the audition memorable. It may seem like a simple white one but it means a lot to me – it was the one that helped me shine and live my dreams.”

Among all the roles she played and amid her past accomplishments, Salonga takes pride the most in being a mom to her daughter Nicole, “There is so much love and reward in being a mother. It’s definitely a new chapter for me, and one of the best roles that I have the privilege of playing.”

Reminiscent of the new Ariel Instashine’s clothes renewal benefit, the musical sparked a renewed sense of inspiration as Salonga relived the highlights of this true-to-life musical journey through her memorable clothes – from when she played Annie, to her white shirt during her audition for Miss Saigon, and an apron she got when she was a new mom.

“Through stains and messy times in the kitchen, this apron marks one of my life’s biggest role – being a mom to Nicole. It’s the role that no one could have ever prepared me for. It’s continuous hard work but it brought so much joy and love to my life. It’s inspiring me to shine brighter every day for my family,” Salonga says.
New Ariel Instashine-produced laundry musical featured Lea Salonga’s The Voice mentees Esang De Torres, Mica Becerro and Leah Patricio who played the roles Annie, Miss Saigon, and Lea as a mom, respectively; and joined by digital parenting icons Cat Arambulo-Antonio, Kelly Misa-Fernandez and Maggie Wilson-Consunji

Along with Lea were her mentees from The Voice, singers Esang De Torres, Mica Becerro and Leah Patricio – and digital parenting icons Maggie Wilson, Cat Arambulo, and Kelly Misa, who also had their own memorable pieces displayed in the collection to attest to the superior cleaning benefits of the new Ariel Instashine.

A whole new detergent world

world’s first detergent with power boosters to remove the toughest layers of stains and make your clothes shine anew in just 1 wash. As with our commitment to elevate the level of clean in the laundry, we also hope to uplift our spirits through keeping clothing pieces valuable and timeless like Lea’s iconic pieces from her roles as Annie, Miss Saigon and as a mom,” concludes P&G Country Category Leader, Laundry Philippines, Ray Pine.
