We all want to be healthy but sometimes we come up with a lot of excuses that get in the way from staying healthy- too tired, too busy, too traffic.
That’s why Watsons, the leading health and beauty chain in the country, launched the #GetActive campaign last May 23 at Square One in BGC. It aims to inspire Filipinos to be healthy through small, everyday active changes in their routine to improve their health.
Small steps such as drinking more water, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, taking deep breaths in between work e-mails, walking from one building to another instead of riding a car or taxi if it’s just in the same area, walking your dog during weekends, and smiling more often can go a long way for our health.
Chef Barnie Alejandro showed how easy it is to prepare healthy meals in a jar. You can put salads or even desserts in the mason jar, leave it in the refrigerator, then take it with you throughout the day. It not only saves time but ensures that you have nutritious food anytime.
It was so quick to do that I was able to do mine in under 10 minutes!
Mr. World Philippines 2016 Sam Ajdani presented exercises one can do while on the go.
You can do these simple exercises at home or in the office. No more excuses! 🙂
Watsons also recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to health. Aside from healthy diet and exercise, taking vitamins is also important. Vitamins bridges the nutrient gap people don’t get in their regular diet and lifestyle, and can help prevent illnesses.
There are different types of vitamins available and formulated to fulfill different nutritional needs. Some of them are:
- Vitamin A for immunity, vision and healthy skin
- Vitamin B complex for energy production
- Vitamin C for immunity and protection against diseases
- Vitamin E for cell damage repair or prevention and for healthy skin.
At Watsons, there are different brands and products available to fulfill every individual’s nutritional needs depending on age, gender and preferred form – such as Enervon, Conzace, Ceelin, Revicon, Myra E, Centrum, Stresstabs, Berocca, Rogin E, Fern C and Watsons Generics.
To further encourage its shoppers, Watsons is offering up to 20 percent off on select vitamins for select period of time in stores.
