While the annual Labor Day holiday represents the challenges and social issues that workers face on a daily basis, for some, it is also a day where they can rest their mind from work. However, wth the pandemic still going on, it would be impossible to go out and travel to places. Fortunately, should you decide to just stay at home and take advantage of this additional day of rest, Streamtech’s high speed fiber internet, lets you enjoy it to the full.
Labor Day in the Philippines
Labor Day is an annual holiday celebrated in most parts of the world. It started in the 19th century, when groups arose to bring to light various pressing worker issues of the day. In 1886, workers in the United States were successful in demanding an 8-hour workday as the standard.
The celebration of Labor Day was officially recognized in the Philippines when the country was under American colonial rule. Workers rallied at the residence of the governor-general to ask for fairer working conditions. The holiday was actually first observed in the country on May 1, 1903, with a bill having been passed in the Philippine Assembly to formally recognize it as a holiday—but it was not granted until 1913.
Labor Day has always been a holiday that allowed workers to spend time with their family and friends—but that was before the pandemic happened. Families would go on a vacation, while single young adults would travel with their friends for a beach getaway. The current circumstances dictate, however, that most everyone will be spending the holiday at home. This being our second Labor Day under general quarantine, it’s important to take stock of what things that we can do at home—especially with the help of Streamtech’s fast internet.

Remember when you used to make a fortress or a “bahay-bahayan”, or indoor “camping” with your family, when you were a kid? This coming holiday is the best time to do it again. All you need are cozy seats, cushions, blankets, popcorn, some drinks, good lights, and fast internet. Since we would not be able to go to cinemas in the near future, a backyard theater will do in the meantime. At the same time, it is more comfortable since you would be able to lie down on a pillow.
With Streamtech’s home fiber, streaming a movie through Netflix with your family will be just as smooth as watching it in a cinema. You can also rewatch your favorite Korean drama series while eating your favorite snacks, and knocking down your favorite drink. One full season of Korean drama typically lasts around 16 hours, which is good relaxation for you from sun-up to sun-down. Streaming movies and TV series have never been this easy with the best Fiber internet Philippines.

If you are not in the mood to move around and you just want to lie in bed, all you need is a music player like Spotify, an earphone or speaker, and fast internet. For a better relaxation experience, turn the air conditioner to the coldest possible temperature, wrap yourself in a blanket, dim the lights and play the songs through a speaker. It can also be a good time to meditate to help yourself recover from a burnout.
Play your favorite online game
One of the most frustrating things about gaming as relaxation is when a game becomes interrupted because of poor connection. This usually results in losing streaks that no gamer ever wants. So, if your connection is lagging, switch to the best fiber internet the Philippines has to offer, for a smoother gaming experience. Getting that platinum or mythical glory? Don’t worry because we’ve got your back. Streamtech understands the needs of gamers especially those who see it as recreation after work or during holidays.

With the pandemic going on for about a year now, it has made catching up physically with the people we love nearly impossible. Luckily, there are online applications such as Zoom, Messenger, Instagram, and Twitter that allow us to talk to them virtually. You can use this free time to update them on your life and ask how they have been, or even make future plans on what to do with them once the pandemic is over.
Reward yourself by shopping online
Looking to buy a new phone or a new laptop? Perhaps you just wanted to spend money and go online shopping instead? Indeed, shopping from the comfort of your home can be a great reward for yourself—and is now part and parcel of our new reality.

Great deals are everywhere and just waiting for that one click of yours. Streamtech’s fast internet will definitely make sure that your online shopping experience is seamless.
Order Fast Food

We are all usually tired from work and so when we get home, we usually just eat a little and go to sleep early. Since we can’t eat outside with the people we used to dine with, the only option we have right now is food delivery. One of the ways you can chill out on a holiday is by rewarding yourself with food and drink from different restaurants. Eating in a restaurant with your friends is one thing, but eating your favorite foods alone in your room while watching a movie can also be just as exciting. If you are watching a movie while eating your favorite food, you can also try doing a watch party so that you can watch a film at the same time with your friends while eating the same food.
Working out at home
Can’t start your fitness goals because you can’t go to the gym due to quarantine restrictions? Don’t worry, you can stay fit even while being stuck at home. In fact, you can use the upcoming holiday to plan your workout routine. All you need is a reliable internet connection, a room, and fitness tutorials from trusted coaches and quality sources. Most of the workouts that people do right now don’t require the use of equipment and solely rely on body weight. There are a lot of workouts that can be found online and all you have to do is skim through and pick the most suitable workout for you depending on your fitness goal.
The best workout videos are the ones that walk you through it and thus, most of these videos are long. To stream them without interruption, you need a fast and reliable internet connection. Streamtech’s fast internet will surely be a great match for your fitness goals and our services will help you start achieving that summer body.

Reading these types of books will also elevate your mindset. There are e-books that you can actually finish in a day if you try to read it continuously. The good thing about this is that after reading these e-books, your life would have been enriched and your probability of success at work and in life in general will increase.
