Play Online Games for FREE at Solitaire.Org

Thursday, July 28, 2022

     When was the last time you played something online? I'm a self-confessed gamer and I grew up playing different kinds of online games. The ones I'm playing before were fighting and strategy games and require an account or payment for you to enjoy the game. I guess I outgrew my interest in those and because of the uncertainties over the past two years, it's time for me to play games that will be beneficial for my mind and mental health.

     I was searching for online games months ago and I'm glad that I discovered solitaire.org- a website offering free online games like word puzzles, hidden objects, and logic games to name a few. Solitaire games offer other collections of games across a number of categories shown in the sitewide navigation. I was delighted to see a lot of online games that don't require signing up or downloading the game itself. My eyes got glued to a letter scramble, word search, and tetra blocks. So without further ado, here's my review of the games that I got addicted to playing at Solitaire.Org.

Brittany Launches New Luxury Condo Tower with Mindfulness, Wellness in Mind

Saturday, May 21, 2022

     Outdoor yoga decks, private parks and tranquility gardens are some of the new and hottest things in luxury residential buildings, which signal the rise in mindfulness and well-being as the mantra in property developments right now. Mindfulness is a kind of energy that we generate when we bring our mind back to our body and get in touch with what is going on in the present moment, within us and around us. We become aware of our breathing and come home to our body, fully present for ourselves and whatever we are doing. The energy of mindfulness helps us touch life deeply throughout the day, whether we’re brushing our teeth, washing the dishes, walking to work, eating a meal, or driving the car. We can be mindful while standing, walking or lying down or while speaking, listening, working, and playing.

     Practicing mindfulness within oneself and with others in the community is one of the priorities of Brittany Corporation, the luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. To capture the feeling of an ultimate retreat, Brittany promotes the mind-body-spirit connection and holistic wellness through Crosswinds, its 100-hectare exclusive enclave tucked away on the face of the lush, sweeping natural hills of Tagaytay.
