Simple, Meaningful Lifestyle Choices are the first step toward a healthier 2023

“Our brands support Filipinos as they take strides towards a healthier, more productive 2023. We believe that by making more mindful choices over time, more people can reap the positive benefits of adopting a more active, balanced lifestyle.” ~Frederick D. Ong, PCPPI President and Chief Executive Officer

New chances to make healthier choices come with the start of a new year. Although it may be difficult to develop habits that support one's lifestyle goals, Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI) encourages Filipinos to take even small, straightforward steps to develop habits that will last over time.

In addition to producing only popular beverages like Pepsi-Cola, Mountain Dew, and Gatorade in the nation, PCPPI also bottles and sells Premier Purified Water. Premier Purified, one of the well-known brands of drinking water in the country, guarantees customer satisfaction by ensuring that its products pass stringent quality and safety tests and meet high standards.

PCPPI suggests five key tips to start 2023 on the right foot:
·     Explore healthier dietary options. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), adults should maintain a diet high in fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains, but lower in salt, free sugar, and saturated fats. When filling one’s food basket, spend a few more minutes to check the nutrition labels. Developing healthy dietary habits may help strengthen the body in fighting non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
·     Integrate movement in your daily routine. The worst exercise routine is a non-existent one. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an adult needs 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week. That’s only 30 minutes every week day, so getting a few steps, skips, and stretches in may work wonders for one’s overall well-being.
Engaging in physical activities can also improve one’s self-esteem and cognitive functions, and can also help reduce tendencies for anxiety and depression.
·      Recovery is key. While physical activity and dietary choices are important in one’s annual health kick-start, getting adequate rest allows the body to recharge and reset. More than getting sufficient hours of sleep, medical studies suggest reducing one’s use of digital devices while in bed to help improve the quality of resting time.
·    Make time for mental health. Practicing self-care and kindness goes a long way. Taking a few minutes to pause and reflecting on the brighter side of daily life can do wonders when managing stress. One’s health also has to do with embracing mindfulness, patience, and compassion towards oneself and others. It may help to keep a daily journal, or write down three positive things that happened at the end of the day as forms of “self check-in.”
·       Drink more water. The CDC says everyone should consume eight to 10 glasses of water. Aside from preventing dehydration, doing so helps regulate cognitive, hormonal, and circulatory functions. Having a bottle of Premier Purified Water handy is recommended for proper nourishment even when on-the-go.
