Seraphims notes during the Presscon: 
During the Presscon, Sun Life Wellness Campaigns introduces Sun Fit and Well, wherein a new generation of wellness products will cover the needs  from prevention to diagnosis treatment and rehabilitation.  It provides cash benefits that covers 114 illnesses.

Also, Jaymie Pizzaro mentioned on the video, that is a community that provides platform for individuals who is passionate with health, fitness and wellness. Definitely, provides venue for fitness activities for health and sport enthusiasts.

Moreover, Filipinos loves to exercise to be healthy and improve mental health. But, 57% has lack of time due to work and 47% lack of motivation. But, I've learned from the Q&A, that if you really want to do something and your eager to make a change and to have a healthy living, you will make time for it. Having a busy schedule or being pre-occupied from work is not an excuse to exercise. You can run, dance, swim or go biking to stay fit.  What matters is how you motivate yourself and you need to belong to a community that shares one goal to stay healthy and live longer because failure of exercise declines your overall health performance. 

Furthermore, Bubles Paraiso, Gowell Ambassador said, if you have a healthy life it shows into your face and how you respond to people inspired them to be healthy as well. She's happy, she's breathing and taking yoga everyday. But,what's more important is you'll be an inspiration to others, she said.

Indeed, some millenials and corporate employees are getting difficulties of taking exercise. I'm guilty as well. But, during this Presscon, it's a big eye opener for me. It makes me realized that I need to take care of my health. I need to widen my understanding in getting a healthy living. I guess, I need to take small steps and I need quick action. I need people to inspire me. So, one baby step is to sign-up to Gowell Program on their website. Let see how it works.
