11. Finer taste in life

Healthier food alternatives will make your meals nutritiously fuller and encourage you to explore better options. Leave it to Duru Bulgur's fiber-rich grains to introduce you to fresh and worldly flavors.

12. Room for growth

Making time for self-care entails a commitment on your end, requiring you to find a balance in your routines. This new responsibility essentially teaches you how there are certain things in your life that you no longer need to prioritize —such as old habits and inconsequential activities— that you can toss out to make more space for essentials. You'll need time to get the hang of things, and once you do, it will make a massive difference to how you spend your days. In the meantime, take a warm cup of heritage milk tea from Chek Hup for an enriching and gentle contemplation.
