Let’s Get Active with Watsons
As I have posted in my recent post, I am now trying to get back into shape not only to be fit but most of all to be strong and healthy. I know “time” is one of the main reasons why most people opted not to exercise, but the truth is if you are really motivated, you can put even just 10 minutes to do a simple exercise even at the comfort of your home.
I got an invite to attend the Watsons Get Active campaign a few days ago. This campaign was made to inspire Filipinos to be healthy through small, everyday active changes in their routine to improve their health.
I agree that being healthy should not be a drastic change in your lifestyle. You could start doing simple things like, opting to eat brown rice, walking more, drinking more water, eating more vegetables and fruits and moving often.
I was at the #WatsonsGetActive event a while ago. The sexy chef Barni Alejandro-Rennebeck taught us some easy to do healthy dishes. Eating healthy is actually harder than exercising, because healthy choices are more expensive, harder to find and you need to study how to prepare. Taking vitamins and supplements will also help to get our nutritional needs. more about this on the blog soon. #WatsonsPH #GetActive
At the event, dietitian and one of the authors of the book Sexy Chef taught us some easy to prepare recipes that are both healthy- Greek Salad and Overnight Oats.
Also, Cosmo Body Fitness instructor Sam Ajdani graced the event and taught some simple exercises.
Watsons also recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to health. Aside from healthy diet and exercise, taking vitamins is also important. Vitamins bridges the nutrient gap people don’t get in their regular diet and lifestyle, and can help prevent illnesses.
There are different types of vitamins available and formulated to fulfill different nutritional needs. Some of them are:
- Vitamin A for immunity, vision and healthy skin
- Vitamin B complex for energy production
- Vitamin C for immunity and protection against diseases
- Vitamin E for cell damage repair or prevention and for healthy skin.
At Watsons, there are different brands and products available to fulfill every individual’s nutritional needs depending on age, gender and preferred form – such as Enervon, Conzace, Ceelin, Revicon, Myra E, Centrum, Stresstabs, Berocca, Rogin E, Fern C and Watsons Generics.
To further encourage its shoppers, Watsons is offering up to 20 percent off on select vitamins for select period of time in stores. And for its loyal members, Watsons is offering customers a chance to win trips to Bali, Guam or Sydney, or win an iPhone 7 or iPad for a minimum of P500 single-receipt purchase of select vitamins and health products.
