Brew Your Best Year this 2015 with CBTL's Giving Journal

I am a planner person (if there's such one). I prefer keeping and maintaining a planner instead of using my phone to help me keep track of my schedule. I'd rather write every single task that I aim to accomplish for the day and I love having to cross them one by one at the end of the same. As such, I look forward to the all the planners that gets released every year. After attending the launch of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Giving Journal launch last Saturday, I am now convinced to have it as my planner for 2015.

Every year, in the months leading up to Christmas, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf releases its coveted Giving Journal around a holiday campaign benefiting the Real Life Foundation, and every year, the company makes it a goal to create something better than the last, constantly evolving the journal to share the company’s passion for GIVING, SHARING, and COMMUNITY. 

For 2015, the theme of the Giving Journal is to provide the inspiration to create OVERFLOWS in one’s life. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf desires for all of us to thrive and live in abundance when it comes to developing personal fulfillment & growth, strong relationships, and a joyful spirituality. To give to others, one must first have something to give, and the Giving Journal empowers us to become the best versions of ourselves.

I actually missed the first Giving Journal launch event where some of my blogger friends were present. Luckily, I was able to attend the next one held a few days after. What I love about this batch of attendees is that we all share something in common - great love for CBTL. My newly found friends and I kept on sharing what our favorite drink is or why CBTL feels like home to us. It is nice to meet people who share the same passion as you. :)

As part of the Giving Journal launch held at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 26th Street Bistro in Taguig, we were asked to make a wire bookmark. The bookmark must have something to do with a word or symbol to inspire you in making 2015 your best year yet. I think most of us were not familiar with wire art. I even feared that I lacked creativity. :p Luckily, we were taught by only the best, Craft Manila.

For my bookmark, I chose the word "courage" as my inspiration for 2015. As I have explained in my Instagram post (@mishrendon), I was able to accomplish everything that I have accomplished through courage. Most of the time, things seem impossible to do and with that, there's so much doubt and fear in us. There's always that fear of failure, of the unknown, and of things that are beyond our control. With courage, we could be strong enough to face anything that comes our way and to at least try to do things that seem impossible to us. Anyway, here's my winning entry 

The Giving Journal 2015 comes in 4 fun colors - green, orange, purple, and brown. I definitely have my eyes set on purple! These are all available starting October 25, 2014 until January 11, 2015. To avail of the Giving Journal, all you have to get complete a single stamp card. Each card contains 12 circles corresponding to 12 drinks that must be availed of: (1) Original Ice Blended; (1) Tea Latte; (1) Espresso/Coffee-based Beverage; (1) Holiday Featured Beverage (Winter Dream Tea Latte or Red Velvet); and any (8) Original Ice Blended, Espresso/Coffee-based or Tea-based Beverages, or Frozen Swirl. 

The best thing about the Giving Journal is that The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf brings the spirit of the Giving Journal to life through partnerships with various social organizations and championing volunteerism through their Customers and Team Members. The company has raised more than P10M for a number of advocacies since 2008, but more importantly, has been able to create much needed awareness for truly worthy endeavors like Habitat for Humanity and Real LIFE Foundation. Since its humble beginnings, the Real LIFE Foundation has financially assisted more than 1,000 scholars and produced over 200 university graduates.

Let us make 2015 our best year yet! :)

Choosing the Right Mattress

Getting a good night’s sleep is key to better health and your mattress has a lot to do with it. According to Michael Decker, PhD, RN, associate professor at Georgia State University, ‘a mattress can impact a person’s sleep’. The type of mattress you lie in, be it firm, medium or soft, can either interrupt your slumber or give you a restful sleep. 

Before you head out to a mattress store, make sure you look into these tips in choosing the right mattress for a comfortable sleep and an ache-free morning the next day.

Know the types of mattress. Familiarize yourself with different types and physical components of a mattress. Some of the most popular includes innerspring, memory foam and latex. Innerspring mattress is the most common and cost effective as it uses a steel coil system for support and covered with materials like padding and quilted ticking for comfort. Memory foam mattress molds to the shape of your body and distributes your weight evenly. Latex is made from either natural or synthetic rubber, which just like memory foam, also conforms to the contours of your body reducing pressure points. 

Understand your physical needs. There is no single mattress type that would fit for all. If you’ve been suffering from back or neck pain, choose a mattress that would provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. If you have allergies and asthma, find a mattress that’s designed to prevent the growth of dust mites, mildew and bacteria. For a restful sleep, purchase the mattress that would suit your needs.  

The size of the mattress matters. If your mattress complies with your sleeping patterns and relieves back pains, you also have to consider getting the right size for a comfortable sleep. Make sure you and your bedmate have the proper amount of space to sleep in. Twin size can accommodate one child and an adult sleeper. A queen size bed is recommended for couples, and if you are more than six feet tall, a king-size mattress is a good choice. 

Test run a mattress before you purchase it. You wouldn’t buy a dress without fitting it first, right? Same goes in buying a mattress, make sure to test nap on it by lying down for 10-15 minutes. If it feels comfortable enough especially in your favored sleeping position, then it’s the right mattress for you.

Buying a mattress is a big purchase for your home. Since you are to spend one third of your life sleeping on it, invest on one that can give the best value for your money and comply with your physical needs. Choose the right mattress for a sound night’s sleep and a rejuvenated feeling the next morning.
