Anne Curtis shares tips in organizing personal life
March 15, 2023 - Wednesday 2:03 PM by Leslie Ordinario
Neozep Forte unveils "Pambansang Dyosa," Anne Curtis, as its newest brand ambassador and Ilong Ranger’s latest partner to inspire Passionistas or passion seekers to become unstoppable.
A Passionista herself who’s known for numerous achievements in and beyond show business, Anne Curtis tells us what being a “Passionista” means to her.
“When I hear the word Passionista, I think of someone who is in love with life. Someone who has this awe-inspiring passion in everything she does, whether in her career or her personal life, so much that everyone around that person just can’t help but be encouraged to do the same. It’s being single-minded when it comes to running towards your dreams and never stopping!”
It is not surprising that Anne draws her energy from sources other than celebrity and material achievement. Anne's pursuits in cuisine, health, business, travel, and fashion are all for the benefit of others, in addition to herself.
“[Being a Passionista] also means that you have a strong desire to serve, to uplift, and even bring others with you on your journey,” she says.
Staying on top of her game, even starting several businesses with her friends, and, being a caring wife and now a doting mom to an active toddler, Anne shares that keeping the balance in her life has been a challenge.
“Honestly, it’s not easy! But when you know what you love and you’re clear about your direction, you find ways to make everything work.” She adds, “Sometimes we just want to do so many things all at once! But when you find that sweet spot, everything will have a better flow and you’ll be able to find more joy in what you do.”
Here are the multimedia superstar’s tactics when it comes to organizing her life:
1. Time blocking
“On a daily basis, I make sure to block time for my family outside of work, especially now that I have my daughter. “
2. Prioritizing self-care
“Personal self-care time is also very important to me—working out and eating healthily. It gives me more fuel to pursue the things that I enjoy doing.”
“You want to always have a set of self-care activities that you know work for you on days that you need them most, to help you get back on focusing on and enjoying your passions, to help you stop overthinking, and concentrating on how far you’ve come instead!”
3. Advanced planning
“Planning things ahead, sometimes weeks or even months ahead helps me a lot, but still carving some space for flexibility does wonders.”
4. Using organizers
“Use your phone calendar for appointments and important schedules so you get reminders and you don’t miss anything while making sure to add planned dates for your rest days too!”
5. Pausing when needed
“We all have those days when we just don’t feel like getting up and conquering the world because it can’t be all just happy days all the time, right? When I feel down and unmotivated, I try to really pause and take a quick break from it all and really try to center myself. If I only have a few minutes to spare, I try to meditate for a few minutes and maybe get a quick gentle workout in (yoga is perfect for this). Super helpful to talk to friends, too, especially those who are also Passionistas themselves.”
Like most of the artists we see on screen, Anne spends most of her days working nonstop—long shooting hours, early call times, countless rehearsals, events left and right, and more. Is there anything in particular that prevents her from accomplishing everything on her plate??
She answers, “I do get a sipon every now and then, especially when the weather changes. And I’ve tried every quick remedy trick in the book, like topicals, inhalers, and other home remedies, but I discovered that Phenylephrine HCI + Chlorphenamine Maleate + Paracetamol (Neozep Forte) works best for me! It really helps relieve my cold symptoms such as headache, sneezing, and runny nose whenever I catch them. That's why I just never leave my house without it in my essential kit. I can’t let sipon stop me!”
If she could tell other Passionistas, like herself, a piece of advice to help them with their passionate journey, here’s what she wanted them to hear.
“Don’t be scared to dream and dream really big, follow your passions because anything is possible. I promise you won’t regret it! If you feel lost and don’t know where to start, just always go back to what you’re really passionate about—something that makes you forget time! Start there.”
The brand’s Product Associate, Martina Ferrer, says, “We are very happy to have Anne as our newest ambassador and we really think she is perfect for the purpose of our campaign, which is to inspire Passionistas just like her."
"Similar to Anne, Phenylephrine HCI + Chlorphenamine Maleate + Paracetamol (Neozep Forte) can also provide you with kumpletong ginhawa from all symptoms of colds such as runny nose, headache, and sneezing so you can become your best Passionista self," she added.
