With the pandemic came a hard, but practical, lesson for Filipinos: that taking care of one’s well-being is an investment because every minute spent sick is precious time that could have been spent building one’s career, achieving one’s personal goals, or simply enjoying the company of loved ones.
Many individuals, however, still equate healthcare to finding a cure to one’s illness, instead of taking measures to stop the illness from happening in the first place. These measures include having a balanced diet, pursuing an active lifestyle, and accessing healthcare services for preventive and primary care.
“There is this notion that pursuing healthcare services is stressful and daunting, especially if one is preoccupied with many other things. As a consequence, many neglect it, pursuing it only when absolutely necessary – which means that they could already be in various stages of being ‘unhealthy.’ Ironically, this will put them in a situation that limits their pursuit of things that are important to them.”
—Archie Rillo, Chief Marketing Officer of Maxicare
