The new year is just brimming with possibilities, and we’re all feeling pretty excited about our plans. There are just so many new things we can do, foods we can eat, goodies we can buy, and hopefully, places we can go!
But somewhere in these 365 new days, there are bound to be a few not-so-great things. They shouldn’t be too big a problem, however, as long as you know how to prepare for them.
Get ready for whatever 2022 might throw at you by making sure you’ve got the following items all set up:
Bad Day Care Package
Every year comes with emotional emergencies, so it wouldn’t hurt to have some go-to self-care goodies ready whenever you need them. Stash a pint of your favorite ice cream in the freezer, fill a small part of the cupboard with some guilty pleasures, or have all your comfort movies and series a click away. The idea is to keep the things you normally enjoy during me-time accessible whenever you need them, so you can start recuperating from your bad days instantly.
For non-emotional disasters like earthquakes and floods, it’s always good to have a go-bag ready in your home. This is a bag filled with everything you need in case you need to scramble out of your home. A good go-bag always has an extra set of clothes, basic toiletries, at least three days’ worth of non-perishable food and water, and simple tools like a flashlight and scissors.
Every home needs to have basic medical supplies on-hand. A good first-aid kit should have band-aids, bandages, gauze pads, cotton buds, and cotton balls. You’ll also need isopropyl alcohol, an antiseptic like povidone-iodine, ammonia, and sterile water. In terms of equipment, keep a thermometer, mini-flashlight, and tweezers in your kit.
You’ll also need basic medications like antihistamines and painkillers. Since the flu
happens way more frequently than we expect, you might want medicine that allows
you to recover from flu and get back on track like Phenylephrine HCl Chlorphenamine
Maleate Paracetamol (BIOFLU) in your first-aid kit. It provides speedy relief (as fast as 15 minutes) from all the most common flu symptoms and multiple ailments (fever, body
pain, cough, colds, chills, and sore throat), and it’s also a really sulit option at just P7.50
SRP per tablet.
If you’ve upgraded to a newer phone this holiday season, make sure you still hold on to the older one as a backup. The secret is to make sure you store your backup phone the right way.
Keep the battery at around 40-50% to make sure it doesn’t discharge to an unusable condition while in storage. Then, you’ll want to take it out of your phone and store both separately in a cool, dry place. Charge it back to 40-50% power every six months to make sure it stays healthy.
Staying cooped up in quarantine has taught us one major thing: it’s actually possible to get bored with our screens. If you find yourself stuck at home for way too long (or if the power goes out), make sure you can still have a good time by having some non-electronic entertainment ready. This can be something as simple as a pack of playing cards, but feel free to try out some new board games, too!
If the past two years have taught us something, it’s that anything can happen. While we can’t always control the situations we’re in, we can make sure we’ll be ready for them. Whatever 2022 brings, make sure you can take it on with confidence by having the right gear—and medications!—handy.
