Healthier Habits to Squeeze into Busy Schedules

Between meetings, reports, and traveling through crazy traffic, being a typical working Filipino is the perfect excuse to sit back and indulge every time you get a break. Taking time off is the best way to recharge your mind and body, but what happens during the rest of the days when you’re stuck in the daily grind?

Here are three important habits to take up so you not only get on your #fitspiration – you just may start a new lifestyle that helps you not only feel better but live better.

Before you hop on the latest diet and fitness craze, find your starting point. Know where you stand and work from there. Not everyone is running the same marathon, so join the one that’s meant for you.

Thanks to the power of the internet, there are now hundreds of free tools that can give you a general idea of what your health status is. BPI-Philam offers wellness tools like the Philam Vitality Active which can be accessed online for free. Users can get a quick assessment of their health status, and then get a corresponding activity recommendation to improve this.
If you’re willing to take it a step further, the Philam Vitality program can help you start your total wellness journey. Activate your membership to Philam Vitality and get access to different health checks online, and discounts on basic and selected advanced screens from medical partners such as Makati Medical Center, and Hi-Precision Diagnostics – all of which aim to give you an understanding of your current health status.

Make the right moves

Once you know how healthy your body is, it’s easier to know what needs to be done to live better.

Don’t expect to stay committed to a full hour of lifting and cardio on the get go. Ease into ten-minute workouts, jogging around the village, or doing planks while you watch the latest episodes on Netflix. No matter how quick your workout is, gear up for your routine to train your mind to get your body moving.
