3. Strive to be more informed.

The next Philippine Presidential election will be occurring on the second Monday of May 2022, which has been one of the most anticipated events of the year. It’s our social responsibility and democratic right to vote and to do so, we must strive to keep informed of our candidates as well as their platforms and affiliations. We can read the news every day, keep ourselves updated on recent happenings, and stay critical at all times.

We must always remind ourselves to relax once in a while, and watching a movie will help you ease your stress.

Among the most awaited are the film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile; the film adaptation of the video game, Uncharted; and the highly-anticipated addition to the Marvel cinematic universe, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Surely enough, the cinemas will be occupied this coming year.

6. Donate regularly to a cause or charity of your choice.

It has been common knowledge that the Philippines is an extremely calamity-prone country, and the recent Typhoon Odette has still left people homeless and displaced. This New Year, you can help them rebuild and regain their former lives before the tragedy. You can pick an organization that seeks to help the typhoon victims and donate any amount that you can. Your money will surely be spent on a good cause.

In 2022, most schools and universities will be resuming their face-to-face classes. If you are a student or a professor, chances are that your schedule will be jam-packed and your tasks overflowing. Having a physical or digital planner by your side will be a lifesaver. This way, you can organize your days and manage your tasks well, increasing your drive and productivity.
