Karla Estrada has been long known in the entertainment industry as a strong woman who speaks her mind and who fiercely defends her own from negativity; however, she reveals in the recent official launch of Danarra Aromatherapy Oils that her secret in successfully thriving in show business—and in life—is how she manages stress with good-naturedness, raw honesty, and a bit of humor.

Here are a few real na real lessons from the award-winning actress that can help you during times when you’re sorely in need of good vibes:

On starting the day right and being grateful

“‘Paglabas mo ng kuwarto ay choice mo nang hindi ma-stress… Ako, since maganda nga ang buhay, nahihiya na ako ngayon na magreklamo… Ang mga nakaka-stress ay ‘yong minor lang. Kasi kung galing ka naman sa hindi marangyang buhay, ‘pag nagkaroon ka ng magandang buhay, hindi na bago sa ‘yo ‘yong lahat ng stress na ‘yon.

On braving traffic on a daily basis

Hindi na ako nase-stress sa traffic. Kasi nandiyan na ‘yan. Kung hindi nagagawan ng paraan ng mas may kailangang gumawa ng paraan… ikaw pa ba magagawan mo ng paraan ‘yon? So huwag mo nang i-se-stress ang sarili mo sa traffic because you’ll just be stressed every day ‘pag nasa kalsada ka. Ang gawin mo, manage your time.”

On dealing with toxic people in the workplace

“How ever makitungo ka, [meron pa rin taong] hindi ka type. How ever pakitaan mo ng maganda, meron pa ring tataasan ka ng kilay. One thing na natutunan ko is it’s okay kung hindi nila ako gusto because at the end of the day, it’s my life. Actually when you cry, ikaw lang ‘yon mag-isa, so huwag mo nang iisipin ‘yong sasabihin nila. Gano’n lang.

Wala kasing formula kung paano mo maipapakita ang sarili mo na kailangan matuwa ang lahat…kasi mayroong mga tao talagang nabubuhay sa inggit… And kung paano mag-de-deal sa kanila is deadma.”

Kung makita mo lahat ng stretch marks ko pinagawa kong kidlat [na tattoo]… Ang ganda… Dalawa ‘yan. Puwede mong gawing parang ugat ng balete o ‘di kaya kidlat.

On living a stress-free life

“Gawan mo ng paraan ‘yong mga bagay na nakakapeste sa ‘yo. Gawin mong maging masaya.”
