Keeping up with everything can be tiring, but DOH Healthy Pilipinas reminds us that health is wealth!

DOH Healthy Pilipinas released a 30-second advertisement, showing healthy habits. The short video game themed advertisement is entertaining and informative at the same time. The advertisement’s main character, Scott, chooses between two activities, one of which is healthier to do. This advertisement also reminds viewers to choose to be healthy.

Junk food vs Pinggang Pinoy

When you’re tired and drained like Scott, you crave food. You’d normally choose to eat anything that is good rather than what is healthier. But DOH reminds us that it is also important to eat healthy food. Bonus: You’ll have healthy skin, immunity, and energy!  

You’d want to be recharged before starting the day, right?

Party vs Exercise

Even if we’re tired after work, exercising is a good activity to include in your health habits.

According to Carleton Athletics, exercising does more than burn calories and fat. Exercising can sharpen your memory, improve brain performance, and help you get better sleep. Plus, exercising boosts your self-confidence and productivity thanks to the endorphins released in your body!

Pabayaan vs Pabakunahan

Getting vaccinated means you care about your own health and others’. Vaccines can protect against and prevent the spread of serious diseases. When COVID-19 was at its peak, many refused to take vaccines. Anti-vaxxers believe vaccines are unsafe, and forcing them to take them is against their human rights.

But after many people got vaccinated, COVID-19 cases decreased. We’re in the new normal, but of course, health protocols are still being observed.
