WATSONS #GetActive: Taking Small And Easy Steps To Improve Your Health!

Watsons #GetActive campaign

We all want to stay healthy and live longer. But there are questions that needed to be addressed first that only ourselves could  answer. Are we doing something or taking any steps to achieve that healthy lifestyle? Have you already started your journey to healthy living?.

I know, starting your own path to a healthier lifestyle is kinda hard. And with all the external factors such as hectic work schedule, family duties, household chores, long hours of traffic, eating out with friends and loved ones, we tend to break the rules and deviate on our path to healthy living.

According to a research conducted by Watsons Insights on Shoppers Experience (WISE), 66 percent of Filipinos believe they have good knowledge on health, however surprisingly, 57 percent do not exercise regularly to stay healthy.

Knowing and understanding those research results, Watsons Philippines just launched the Watsons #GetActive campaign to inspire Filipinos to be healthy through small, everyday active changes in their routine to improve their health. To be healthy doesn’t necessarily mean doing major changes and adjustments in our lives like starting to train as a tri-athlete, spend 2 hours in the gym 3 to 5 times a week, own a fancy health equipment at home, spend thousands of pesos on healthy meals or cook difficult or time-consuming healthy recipes.

WATSONS #GetActive: Taking Small And Easy Steps To Improve Your Health!“Watsons #GetActive campaign is one of our continuous efforts and part of our commitment to improve 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,” says Watsons Marketing Director Viki Encarnacion.
