You got this. We know you do. But sometimes, you need a pat on the back and a bit of a push to get you on your way. To help you upgrade your everyday, we've tapped host, writer, actress, and all-around lifestyle guru Cara Eriguel of the After 30 podcast on Spotify for a few tips and words of encouragement on navigating this stage of your life.
Starting next month, she and FN will be collaborating for #FNxAfter30withCaraEriguel, a series that will give you practical tips on things that make adulting a tad bit complicated, whether it's managing your time or experiencing burnout at work.
Cara is a typical millennial multi-hyphenate, having had taken Theatre Arts and Malikhaing Pagsulat sa Filipino in U.P. College. Formerly an actress, event technical director, lighting designer, and even an ACA Video cashier, she is now steadily juggling event and TV hosting for Oshopping Philippines, One sports VJ, and Cignal TV. She's also a former Monster RX 93.1 DJ and hosted the show Wild & Wicked.
Get to know a bit about Cara:
How you destress: "I play with my dog. I read a good book with a cup of good black coffee with a hint of cinnamon. I watch Friends and How I Met Your Mother while eating chocolates."
Three things you tell yourself everyday: "Keep moving forward, learn to laugh at yourself, and be kind."
Goals in life: "To travel the world, connect with more people, find my Ikigai [and] help others find theirs, build a family... [It's] such a tough question to answer right now, [but] I’m taking it one day at a time.
"The main goal for now is to find what it is that I am meant to do, that brings joy to myself and others."
