Your social media timeline by now perhaps is filled with campaign content posts from the candidates for May 2022 Philippine Elections. Yes. Same as mine! Furthermore, some of your friends may even have started becoming “too passionate” with their posts declaring their support for their pick. But this is not a political blog post about the Philippines. This though is an advocacy blog post about our planet – that just like how you would vote for your chosen candidate, may you would also vote for a more habitable planet Earth. Here is how to do it in simpler and easier ways with Watsons.

Five Wellness Essentials For a Healthier Family in The Workplace

Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

“The listed items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.”

Are you treated like a family at work?

It is indeed a booster to our sense of belonging every time we reminisce how our mere workmates from the very first day of work become an extended family after how many met deadlines, resolved conflicts and released paychecks with performance bonuses.

But how can you say if the people inside the office really treat you like a family?There are perhaps several ways. The most I am sure of though is when the office people do not just coach you plainly about your corporate responsibilities. It is when these same people also teach you health tips and wellness advisories, “persistently”.

In the list below are wellness essentials I recommend to my family at work. These are my must-have items when I visit my only trusted health retailer, Watsons. These are all inside my work bag per shift.

C0469065-437B-4EC7-A41A-8F3D8C97D829
The list includes items for strengthening immunity, maintaining integrity of the Upper Respiratory Tract (URT) specifically the throat (as this is the most used part during daily sales presentation) and managing daily stress from work. These items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.

1. Vitamin C/ Multivitamins (ENERVON C TAB X30 BOTTLE, PhP 195)

The work schedule makes it hard for us to consistently buy the natural food source of vitamins and minerals. This fails us to achieve the enough daily nutritional requirement to be healthy. Thus, having handy tablets at your work pouch makes it easier for a hard working person like you to maintain strong immunity.

2. Antibacterial Lozenges (STREPSILS LOZENGES ORANGE 8X36, PhP 64)

This is indeed the most specific item in the list for the corporate persons who are tasked to talk almost entirely in their work hours like the sales and marketing team. Apart from the daily work demand on your throat, the varying room temperatures among several sales venues makes your throat dry and more vulnerable to pathogens. Ascertain that you have a healthy URT daily to deliver your persuasive spiels. Guard it with an Antibacterial “candy”.

3. Oral Antiseptic (Bactidol Oral Antiseptic 120ml, PhP 186)

Brushing your teeth is not enough to deter the growth of bacteria in your mouth that might predispose you to more serious health concerns. An antiseptic gargle both disinfects your mouth and gets rid of unpleasant smell – a plus point when networking.

4. 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (BIOGENIC ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL 50ML, PhP 28)

Cutting the transmission of disease-causing agents is as easy as spraying an alcohol every after a using your hands. Make it a habit to spray before and after a handshake with charm (not obnoxious).

5. Calming Oil (PROSOURCE EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT CALMING OIL 10ML, PhP 120)

The product in this list which I am the most thankful of. This is my portable and economical “aroma therapy and sleep-inducing scent”. It simply works like an instant drug for me. It relaxes, soothes and brings me to a sound sleep like magic. Roll that stress away!

6. (ElectiveFacial Mask (DEOPROCE COLOR SYNERGY EFFECT MASK YELLOW SHEET – Snail and Honey, PhP 65)

The agent in the Snail slime highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

Skin care products which contain Snail extract had helped me a lot in maintaining a pleasant complexion for two years now. The agent in the Snail slime which repairs damaged tissues and restores hydration made my skin look more well-nourished and highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

When we start looking after each other’s health, not just because we value the contribution of that person to the department’s success, but more importantly because we care for the life aspirations of that person, we do not plainly see the structure as an organizational chart anymore. Now, it is a family tree. A new normal in the workplace. May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home

and at work too!
