Healthway Medical, with its partnership with the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP), last June 27, opened to public a series of health and wellness activities at the Alabang Town Center to cap off its celebration of the National Wellness Day.
The primary goal of the event, which carried the theme “Your Life Lived Well”, was to promote the importance of embarking on a journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
Health advocates and mall goers were immersed in experiential activities like the seven-minute Wellness Moment workout and breathing exercises, as well as wellness talks from experts that tackled topics about proper diet, the benefits of spa and wellness services, oral health and SEED lifestyle. Free health and wellness services and freebies were also provided by the event partners.
According to Carmie de Leon, Vice President for Sales and Marketing of Healthway Medical, actively living a SEED lifestyle (Sleep, Eat right, Exercise, De-stress) translates to better health outcomes. Healthway has been actively promoting this habit for the past years.
“Not many people realize the importance of balancing what we do every day, especially those who are already working. This is why Healthway, with the representatives from PMAP and all of the event partners, are holding this event—we want working Filipinos to be able to maintain a healthy work-life balance despite the stress that comes with work,” De Leon said.
She added, “Being healthy doesn’t only include preparing a healthy meal and doing daily exercises. It should be a 360-degree campaign you set for yourself.”
“Have enough hours of sleep, maintain a healthy diet, be active, and find ways to de-stress,” De Leon pointed out. “If people are watchful of their health, they will be able to either maintain or improve it.”
One of the event highlights was the Zumba session, which was participated in by the representatives from PMAP and Healthway Medical including De Leon herself, and Zumba enthusiasts, among others.
According to Conrad Perreras, Chairman of PMAP’s Fellowship, Engagement and Wellness Committee, the National Wellness Day gave Filipinos in the workforce an opportunity to learn more about their health and the importance of valuing it. He cited that “being able to live a life that’s deeply anchored on health and wellness means giving yourself the quality of life you deserve.”
“Our activities promote quality of life and happiness in the workplace. With our activities, we proved that Filipinos can balance life and work without compromising one from the other,” Perreras said.
De Leon concluded, “Our partnership with PMAP strengthened our advocacy of promoting a well-rounded lifestyle, one that keeps working Filipinos from suffering from the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. Together, we can enhance the way people live, without letting stress come at the expense of their health.”
