PMAP National Wellness Day

Did you know that 9 of the 10 leading causes of death in the Philippines are health related? And did you also know that just by eating better, making small lifestyle changes and doing moderate activity on most days of the week, we can reduce the risk of many diseases and increase our quality of life?

The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) is advocating health and wellness in the workplace as one of the most important issues that companies need to address today. With this, PMAP will hold a nationwide event called National Wellness Day that is envisioned to be participated by various companies in the country, both PMAP and non-PMAP members.


PMAP President Jesse Francis N. Rebustillo said that through the years, the organization have organized employee activities like sports fests, family day events and the likes for its member companies. "This time, we want to come up with an activity that will help promote awareness among employers and employees about the importance of being physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy."




PMAP is encouraging companies to conduct a half-day event in their respective workplaces that includes sponsored healthy lunch and snack; learning sessions on work-life balance, holistic and spirituality; and the 7-Minute PMAP Wellness Moment, a quick wellness activity that involves stretching and meditation.

The wellness moment involves the following activities:

  • 2-minute stretching/ self-massage
  • 2-minute of silence (to pray or meditate)
  • 1-minute dance/ jog in place/ jump or hop and
  • 1-minute clapping/ laughing or handshakes with colleagues

Companies who will join in the event are encouraged to document their participation through videos and/ or photos and send a copy to the PMAP Secretariat to be included in the list of companies who will be recognized with a workplace wellness certificate during a PMAP event.


"We encourage all our members to participate in this worthy activity likewise to discuss to your employees our advocacy on how to stay fit and become more productive members of our society," Rebustillo added.
