C2E2: Celebrating 10 years of comics, cosplay and pop cultureconvention in Chicago

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo brings ton of experience to all ages whether you love comics, toys or looking for any pop culture memorabilia. It was my first time to experience attending this convention in Chicago since the location is too far from my place (about 20 miles commute) and considering the cold weather (yes, still cold in Spring!) . I was planning to attend any weekend (Saturday or Sunday) when this contest pop up on my Facebook newsfeed for C2E2 by Bugle Newspaper Facebook Page.

One of them is the laundry. This takes up so much time and energy that women often feel that they no longer have time to take care of themselves. Aside from the stereotypes that many Filipinos grew up with, where it was the norm to leave all the homecare duties to the women, another reason that men give as to why they don’t help out is that they don’t know how to do the household tasks properly.

Sleep: A Simple and Healthy Solution for Looking and Feeling Younger

Are you ready to dive into the fountain of youth?  Growing older has a broad range of complications, like aching joints and wrinkled skin.  Thankfully, you can maintain your youth and vitality just by getting more sleep.   Image courtesy of Pixabay Running on fumes We often forget our childhood lessons about getting sufficient slumber.  The old adage about “early to bed, early to rise” goes by the wayside for many adults, with sleep seen as a bit of a waste of time.  Instead, we attempt to replace the energy we would gain from catching Zs with caffeine, sugar, and other stimulants.  According to HealthLine, adults’ sleep requirements range from 7 to 9 hours per night.  When we sacrifice that sleep, no matter how we try to fill in the gap, we may sacrifice productivity, focus, stability, and long-term health.  Being sleep deprived can impair your immune function, cardiovascular health, digestion, and hormone production.  In effect, it can age you before your time.
