Did you know?
66% of Filipinos actually believe that they have good knowledge on health; however, surprisingly, 57% of which do not exercise regularly to stay healthy. This recent study was conducted by Watsons Insights on Shoppers Experience (WISE), a research division of the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer A.S. Watson Group.
What does this mean? This shows that majority of us are, yes, interested in health, but actually not doing what they preach. The root of this is our busy schedule that we tend to rest than to follow our exercise habits.
#GetActive with Watsons
This is the very reason why Watsons, the leading health and beauty chain in the country, gives you #GetActive campaign. The project aims to inspire more Filipinos to be healthy through small, frequent changes in their daily routine. For what? All for the improvement of their health
We all know that to be healthy, it doesn’t mean that you should do major changes and adjustments in your lives like starting to train as an athlete or spend more time in the gym.
For Watsons’ Marketing Director, Viki Encarnacion,
“Watsons #GetActive campaign is one of our continuous efforts and part of our commitment to [improving] the lives and health of Filipinos by inspiring them to take small steps 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. The list of small steps which we can do is endless, our days are full of opportunities to do these and Watsons can be their partner to improve their health.”
And on May 24, they officially launched their #GetActive campaign at Square One, BGC, Taguig. The event was attended by different health and lifestyle enthusiasts. Cosmomen Sam Ajdani also taught the guests how to stay fit without splurging on expensive gyms. On the other hand, the sexy chef herself, Barni Rennebeck showed us that being healthy can be yummy, too.
