Alaxan offers solutions to pains in post-pandemic lifestyle

Whether the situation has influenced our present lifestyle in one way or another, here are a few ways our livelihood and health were reshaped.

Published

The pandemic has undoubtedly altered our everyday lives. The transition forced us to reevaluate our livelihood while prioritizing our overall well-being in the midst of a global health emergency. 

While a post-pandemic lifestyle has its pains and gains, Filipinos have begun to put greater importance on their overall health and make mindful choices when it comes to the efficacy and safety of the health solutions we use.

Whether the situation has influenced our present lifestyle in one way or another, here are a few ways our livelihood and health were reshaped.

Hybrid work normalized for some industries

The pandemic reshaped work life for many.  Many office workers have started embracing a more confined lifestyle as the majority (80%) of Filipinos prefer hybrid work, which allows for greater work-life balance. However, it also results in lower levels of physical activity due to long hours of sitting. 

This flexible work setup nowadays is convenient for Charlene Miole, a BPO employee. “Mas marami akong oras para sa gawaing bahay at mas maraming bonding time sa family ko. Kaya lang, may mga times na masakit ‘yung balakang at balikat dahil sa ‘di tamang posture pag nakaupo kapag nag-ta-trabaho.”

[I have more time to do household chores and bond with my family. However, there are times that I get shoulder and hip pain due to my bad sitting posture when I work.]

Rise of on-demand delivery services

Food delivery rider, Conrado Collado, shared that the pandemic rather unexpectedly provided better opportunities as more consumers order their meals online. However, Collado admitted that he is sometimes overworked, causing recurring body pains.

“Sumasakit ang katawan ko lalo na kapag buong araw ako bumibiyahe—byahe ng motor, lakad dito, lakad [doon]. Bihira ako umuwi ng bahay noon dahil sa taas ng kaso ng COVID tapos ‘yong asawa ko pa nawalan ng trabaho kaya dapat doble kayod. Hanggang sa ngayon, ito lang inaasahan namin kaya bumabyahe pa rin ako araw-araw,” shared Collado.

[I experience body pain especially when I ride for the whole day—riding the motorcycle and walking around for orders. I rarely went home before due to the high number of COVID cases. My wife also lost her job so I had to work double time. Up until now, this has been our main source of income so I deliver food every day.]

Filipinos realized the value of work

Meanwhile, getting laid off during the pandemic was the biggest worry of Joel Lim, a security guard. This pushed him to work harder to stay on the job to support his family, oftentimes, at the expense of his health. “Matindi ‘yung naging pangamba ko na mawalan ng trabaho noong pandemic, kaya ngayong unti-unti na tayo bumabawi, patuloy pa rin ako kumakayod. Kapag masakit ang katawan ko, bukod sa paglagay ng ointment, sinasabayan ko rin ng pain reliever para tuloy-tuloy talaga sa trabaho.”

[I was concerned about my job security during the pandemic. Now that we are slowly recovering from it, I still continue to strive hard. So when I experience body pain, aside from using topical ointment, I also take a pain reliever so I could continue working.]

Importance of well-researched health products

During the pandemic, there has been a lot of confusion and misconceptions surrounding our health and the products we put in our body—one of which is people’s worries about getting vaccinated. Through consistent public education, eventually, there became a greater understanding of the extensive research that goes behind healthcare products.

In the same grain, pain medicines like Alaxan have gone through not just various scientific research, but also real-life monitoring of its efficacy and safety.  After decades in the market, Ibuprofen+Paracetamol (Alaxan) has not caused serious side effects to the body organs.  It is a synergistic combination of Ibuprofen+Paracetamol that was found to have the highest success rate among OTC pain medicines tested, according to a 2015 scientific review by Cochrane, a world-renowned independent research institution.  The same study also found that Ibuprofen+Paracetamol has fewer adverse effects than placebo which proves that the combination is not likely to cause serious harmful effects on our body when used at the recommended dose.

While there is no other way but to move forward, the pandemic has certainly pushed us even more to work harder and to value our livelihood without compromising our health along the way. Fortunately, these past years also taught us that well-researched health products are accessible to give us a strong fighting chance against these challenges.

5 Ways to enhance family wellness during rainy days

These tips will help you navigate the rainy season with ease and joy.

Published

on

As the weather turns wet and chilly, your family’s health and happiness is of utmost priority. From creating an inviting environment at home, to seeking ways to boost the family’s immunity, these tips will help you navigate the rainy season with ease and joy. 

1. Create a Cozy Indoor Environment

There’s surely nothing better than being in a warm and inviting environment on a rainy day. Bring out some blankets and pillows and pair these up with fun activities that the whole family can enjoy at home. By creating a cozy ambiance, you’re sure to achieve a soothing atmosphere that promotes overall well-being and reduces stress. 

Additionally, keeping your family’s beloved space clean and clutter-free helps reduce allergens and creates a healthier living environment. Keep in mind that a cozy indoor setting can transform rainy days into cherished moments of connections for a healthy and happy home. 

2. Emphasize Quality Sleep

A full night’s rest is essential for good health. Set up  a bedtime routine for the family and ensure everyone gets sufficient sleep as this is vital for a strong immune system. Make the most out of the weather and let the soothing sounds of nature aid you in encouraging the entire family to bond over rest and relaxation. 

With quality sleep comes a healthier immune function, regulated mood levels, and overall better mental health. This gives your family a natural defense against seasonal illnesses and stress. 

3. Encourage Physical Activity

While outdoor activities are limited during this season, it is still important to keep the family active even inside the home. There are numerous indoor exercises and activities that the family can enjoy together, such as dancing to your favorite tunes, doing some light yoga, or engaging in indoor sports. Regular physical activity helps in releasing endorphins, reducing stress and uplifting spirits. 

Moreover, having a healthy and active lifestyle promotes cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles, and supports weight management. By making time for physical activities, families can stay active, energized, and connected, even when the rain keeps them indoors, fostering a sense of well-being and togetherness all throughout the season.

4. Maintain a Nutritious Diet

Rainy weather usually leads to cravings for comfort foods Pinoys love. While it’s okay to give into cravings once in a while, be sure to balance these with healthy, nutrient-rich meals to support overall immune function.

Maintaining a nutritious diet is essential for boosting family wellness at this time of the year as well as providing the much-needed nutrients to support immune function and overall health. Incorporating a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins into meals helps strengthen the body’s defenses against the common cold or cough. Nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits packed with vitamin C and leafy greens, are particularly beneficial for boosting immunity during colder months. 

Also keep in mind that staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water helps flush out toxins and keeps the body functioning optimally. By prioritizing nutritious eating habits, the entire family can stay healthy, energized, and well-nourished, ensuring they can fully enjoy indoor activities and stay healthy throughout the rainy season.

5. Boost Immunity with Supplements

Rainy days usually come with the occasional cold and flu so be sure to strengthen your family’s immune system with high-quality supplements and multivitamins. Go for the ones that contain vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and probiotics to enhance overall health.

Supplements like LAC TriAction C1000 Timed-Release offers 3x the benefits of regular vitamin C and ensures continuous immune support and antioxidant protection while LAC ImmuGuard Junior with Probiotics helps maintain good resistance against common infections such as colds and flu and promotes fast recovery so children can quickly get back on their feet through its enjoyable jelly format and great tasting lychee flavor. 

By offering a wide range of products tailored to each family member’s unique needs, LAC ensures that the entire family can maintain optimal health and vitality at every life stage.

Implementing these essential strategies will not only keep your family safe and dry but also foster a sense of togetherness and well-being during the rainy days. By prioritizing immunity, creating cozy indoor spaces, encouraging physical activity, maintaining a nutritious diet, and taking in immune-boosting supplements, you’re equipping your family with the tools to thrive through whatever season.
