I have to admit it, my body is starting to age in a negative way. With all the stress eating and late night work, my metabolism starting to slow down, making it so hard to rise up every morning. And most people from the work place had a same scenario too. According to the survey findings made by Herbalife Nutrition, 96% of Filipino-respondents are concerned about the potential health issues caused by aging, citing heart-related, bone/joint-related, eye-related issues topping their list of concerns. However, despite the high levels of concern, 94% of respondents agree that they can take active steps to help age healthily.
To provide a solution to this issues, Herbalife Nutrition launched its 8th Asia Pacific Wellness Tour. Taking place from September 4 to October 26, the Tour will feature a series of medical symposia, nutrition talks and health workshops held in cities across Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. Led by Dr. John Agwunobi, the Chief Health and Nutrition Officer at Herbalife Nutrition, members of the Herbalife Nutrition leadership and the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) will share their expertise on a variety of health-related topics, to help Asia Pacific consumers live better and healthier lives.
As part of this wellness tour, the Senior Director for Sports Performance and Fitness of HerbalifeNutrition Samantha Clayton visited the Philippines and share expert advice on healthy active lifestyle. During our presscon, I learned how this Super mom of 4 (including triplets!) takes healthy aging seriously that compels her to be an advocate. Here are things I learned from her:
1.Every Move COUNTS
You can never expect healthy bodies by just sitting down and watch TV. Clayton explained that every move we do in our daily activities is important to make our bodies more active than none.
2. A Nutritious Food intake is the KEY
I often heard that most of out fitness well-being are based from the food we eat. Samantha teaches us how important nutrition is for athletes and for everyone. Despite of our busy routine, she advices us to get healthy food on-the-go which is packed with nutrients needed for our body. She even advices us to take our energy from healthy food that will speed up our metabolism. Herbalife Formula 1 Shake has various vitamins and suitable for busy moms on-the-go like Samantha.
3. Seek MORE activities even at Work.
During her talk, she shared to us some of the exercise routine that we can do even while sitting. She said that its important to have these routines to lessen the stored body fats in our body and help us maintain good physique in our bodies.
“At Herbalife Nutrition, we believe in taking a proactive approach to help people cultivate good nutrition habits, incorporate regular physical activity, consume the right supplements and schedule regular health check-ups for their personal well-being,” said Dr. Agwunobi. “Through the Asia Pacific Wellness Tour, we will impart valuable tips and advice to help people in the Philippines harness the power of nutrition to prevent aging-related issues for a long, fulfilling life.”
Samantha Clayton made me realized that healthy aging is possible. And it is inevitable for everyone through proper nutrition value and help with specialist.
