SM Supermalls at Dasmariñas branch brings you to the northernmost and coldest part of the Earth - the Arctic, through its launching display dubbed as Arctic in the South.
The Arctic in the South is another thrilling and chilling journey to all SM shoppers as it launches on July 20, 2019, at the mall atrium of SM City Dasmariñas. This giant arctic display has a life-size interactive set-up that creates an exceptional and excellent malling experience for all, especially for children. 


It features eight (8) life-size replicas of Arctic animals - Polar Bear, Arctic Fox, Beluga Whale, Seal, Pacific Walrus, Orca, Caribou (Reindeer) and Humpback tail. These featured animals belong to UN Habitat’s 10 endangered Arctic animals. The centerpiece also fosters learning through facts and trivia related to the Arctic setting and the natural habitat of featured animals through school tours at the mall. 
During the launch, arctic mascot friends perform and interact with children while wearing their boots and fur costumes. Along with the display launch, in-theme pocket activities like mascot meet-and-greet, coloring sessions, and face painting are also held at the mall atrium. 

The Arctic in the South is in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). SM is one with WWF in its mission to conserve nature and reduce the pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. It makes a platform for shoppers to be informed of the impact of global warming in the Arctic region.

SM has been a catalyst of innovation, creative activations, and massive displays. In 2017, SM Supermalls made a mark by bringing to life pre-historic creatures through Dinos in the Mall. In 2018, shoppers experienced the wonders of an African savannah with Jungle Safari. These two series of life-size displays travelled through SM South Luzon’s 15 malls - from Cavite all the way to the Bicol region. 
This amazing sub-zero adventure will travel to your favorite South Luzon SM Malls in Cavite, Batangas, Laguna and as far as in Bicol. Visit SM City Dasmariñas FB Page to know more about the schedule of the Arctic in the South.

Men’s Health: Tips to Optimize Your Nutrition

By Susan Bowerman M.S., RD, CSSD, CSOWM, FAND – Sr. Director, Worldwide Nutrition Education and Training, Herbalife Nutrition.
The old saying that “men are from Mars and women are from Venus” seems to apply when it comes to nutrition.
While women tend to fret about their weight and pore over food labels, men often have a more relaxed attitude when it comes to their diets. Maybe it’s because most guys burn through calories a lot faster than women do – so they figure they can get away with eating whatever they want.
Going Beyond Body Weight
The assumption seems to be that as long as their weight is in check, they really don’t have to give much thought to what they eat. But that’s not really the case.
Body weight is only a part of the picture. How much body fat you have, where that fat settles on your frame, along with the overall quality of your diet – all contribute to your wellbeing.
Let’s say you don’t do much exercise, but your weight is reasonable. Don’t let that fool you: you could still be carrying around way too much body fat. And while excess body fat is a concern for everyone, guys are more likely to carry that excess weight around the middle, which is much more damaging to health than the fat that women tend to accumulate on their hips and thighs.
So, while keeping your weight down is key, you need to do it the right way.
What Should Men Eat for Health and Good Nutrition
Simply eating less only works when the nutritional quality of your diet is above par. Eating less of a poor diet may cut calories, but you’ll still be selling yourself short on nutrition. Instead, you want to pack the most nutrition you can into each bite by keeping your focus on healthy food: vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains.
Place an emphasis on heart-healthy foods. If most of your carb calories are coming from chips and soda, look instead to foods like oats, beans, berries, plums, broccoli, and carrots. They’re great sources of soluble fiber and can help to help keep cholesterol levels in check.
Also consider seafood that’s low in fat and calories, yet rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. These should be on your menu as often as possible.
Finding Time to Invest in Your Wellbeing
One of the biggest barriers to taking care of yourself is time. You may find yourself so busy that it becomes too easy to skip meals or grab something on-the-go. But skipping meals usually backfires, and you just wind up overeating at your next meal.
And if you don’t make the time to exercise, you’ll gain more belly fat and your sleep will likely suffer, too. Then, you might find yourself turning to sugary foods and drinks to boost your flagging energy – which just puts more weight on you, and the cycle continues.
If you’re breakfast skipper, set a goal of having a healthy meal a few mornings a week. If you don’t have time to sit down for breakfast, grab a carton of yogurt and a piece of fruit, or whip up a protein shake with some milk and fruit and take it with you.
If you tend to grab meals on the run during the day, think about packing your lunch a couple of days a week or preparing a home-cooked meal once or twice a week. It will give you a lot more control over your what you eat…and how much.
Lastly, try writing down what you eat for a couple of days. It’s the best way to come face-to-face with your eating habits – for better or for worse. There’s nothing quite like a good hard look at the skipped meals, the salty snacks or a severe shortage of fruits and vegetables to spark a diet makeover.
