PhilCare: Your Best Partner in Health Care


In our everyday life, especially those working in a BPO company like me, health is really at risk when you’re in the workplace. Filipino workforce especially who worked in the office should be mindful that even just sitting in front of a computer all day can be perilous to health. You might get back pain, eyestrain, sleep problems, and expect to face different kinds of stress – physically, mentally or emotionally. As a result, you will end up being forgetfulness, lack of focus, short temper, trouble getting things done, and worst, you’ll end up feeling sick or hospitalized. All of these might affect your productivity and quality of your tasks, the thing that your boss is afraid of.

So, how you can prevent it?

You just need to have an active development of being aware in making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. You need to implement some simple lifestyle and work habit changes. Sometimes a small change can make a big difference like drinking a lot of water; stretching while waiting your computer to load; standing as much as you can or you can take breaks every hour to move your body; and getting enough sleep.

Your life revolves not only on just a click on your mouse or a tap on your keyboard, and it’s not just about sending and responding to an email. Take time to do something you want to do, such as hanging out with friends, having a family vacation, or you may want having “me time”. On top of these things, you need to be health-conscious. Every Filipino hard-worker deserves to live in a wellness environment after all. Prevention is better than cure; this is the same wellness approach of PhilCare, the Top HMO provider in the Philippines that committed to provide effective and quality health care services.

“Health is not only about being alive, it is about being well. It is a state of achieving a complete harmony of mind and body.”

PhilCare designed a wellness program to motivate people to take on an active routine that will also engage a workforce to adopt a healthy and fit lifestyle, the PhilCare360.

Yesterday morning, I received a PhilCare360 Wellness Box that contains variety of healthcare items from PhilCare that reflect out their wellness proposition and represents an advocacy that would like to share to us.
