As the old saying goes, “health is wealth” and as the rainy season begins, moms needs to take even more care to ensure that their homes are healthy havens for their family. That is why leading home appliance brand Electrolux shared tips on how mothers can make their homes an #ElectroluxHealthyHome at the recently held Create a Healthy Home event at Circa 1900 in Cebu City.
Celebrity guests Reena Malinao-Tan and Blinky de Leon and her mom, Angeles de Leon-Cornejo, shared some of their tips for moms on how to create homes that promote wellness.
“Wellness for me is about attaining balance in everything: work and life, food, daily activities, relationships. Wellness is a journey that must be enjoyed by every member of the family,” Malinao-Tan.
“First is making sure we have a clean and relaxing place to live in. With a toddler in the house, I live by the tip ‘less is more’. My husband and son have allergies, so maintaining a good quality of air, free from dust is on top of the list. I’m also an advocate of natural and mild cleaning agents,” she elaborated.”
When it comes to eating, she said, “I go by balanced eating. In our fast-paced lives, making sure we go by the food pyramid is a challenge. It really helps to have meal planning, talking to the members of the family on the meals to prepare for a certain time. That way, we prevent ourselves from resorting to instant food or fried dishes.”
Malinao-Tan also talked about the importance of quality time with the family, making sure that they shared meals together, enjoy a regular day out (from a simple playhouse date with her little one to out-of-town adventures) and even gadget-free time in a day for them to enjoy each other’s company and shares stories of the day.
Meanwhile Angeles de Leon-Cornejo talked about the importance of fitness. “I am a fitness enthusiast. I have engaged my children to do the same for I am a strong believer of how exercise benefits the human body. I encourage my hubby to play basketball with our son in our mini-basketball in our front yard on weekends. It’s also a way for them to bond. I also allow my children to do domestic chores to ready them for the future, when they have families of their own,” Angeles de Leon-Cornejo shared.
Janice Villanueva, successful mompreneur and founder of Mommy Mundo, a community dedicated to supporting, inspiring and connecting moms, defined wellness as “not just being physically healthy but also includes maintaining a healthy mind and spirit.“
At home, Villanueva stressed, it is important to provide an environment that supports these wellness goals. Her tips include choosing products that do not contain or have less toxins and chemicals. She also mentioned the importance of regular cleaning of furniture because for her, dust is an enemy of physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as decluttering her home three or four times a year.
When it comes to eating healthy, Villanueva shared that she sits down with her cook and educates her on using healthy ingredients and methods of cooking. She also talked about the importance of reading product labels “because i want to know what is going into our bodies and our plates” and trying to go organic when she can.
