Busy saving the world; got no time to go to the bank?

Just like the person Coldplay sang about, I am not a superhero with superpowers. But I like to think that with what I do at work everyday, I can soon accumulate enough goodwill to ease the plight of our planet.

The whiteboard in the office is groaning with a full schedule each month. The team has their respective assignments and responsibilities. Since the team consists of four people, it goes without saying that each one takes on more than the JD allows.

I take care of the communication aspect of our work. From the time I wake up to the time I sleep (if it’s possible), I eat and breathe comms, comms, comms.

Take a look at what my day looks like:

7 a.m. – Scan for news, write-ups, mentions of our organization
8 a.m. – Check out messenger apps for any client concerns
9 a.m. – Get up, cook and prepare my little boy for school
10:30 a. m. - Drop off at school
11 a. am. - Gym
12:30 p. m. - Lunch
1:45 p. m. – Pick up from school
2:30 p. m. – Prep my son for nap time
3 p. m. – Attend events, meet with clients
8 p.m. – Go home
9 p.m. – Prep my son to bed
11 p.m. – Check online stories and some youtube time

You may ask, “Is that for real?” or “Seriously?!” The answer is YES.

As you can see, the schedule does not include time for friends and my other obligations—paying bills, paying for things I order online, or (even if it is rare), booking Airbnb. What’s a 30-something-year-old got to do? Hire an Andy to do my bidding? Sadly, I’m no Miranda Priestly. Besides, I’m too busy saving the world, I got no time to go to the bank.

The good news is that there’s GCash I can depend on to do the more mundane stuff in life. I am a fan of the GCash Money Transfer; I can send or pay money on my phone anytime, anywhere.

Sending money via GCash is a breeze:
1. Open the app.
2. Look for the Send Money icon.
3. Choose the bank to send payment.
4. Log in the account details and amount.
5. Wait for confirmation.

Bottomline: I can fulfill my obligations and still save time AND money (GCash money transfer is FREE). I figure, if I want to change the world, I need to start changing my financial habits. Going cashless is that ONE big step.

GCASH Saves The Day!

For more than 20 years, Healthway Medical has continued to make a name in the Philippines as a leader in preventive healthcare, offering customers various medical checkups that come in numerous package offerings.

In showing the way to Filipinos toward a healthier lifestyle, Healthway Medical currently has three product packages: Basic 5, PrimecheQ and HealthcheQ. Basic 5 covers the Annual Physical Exam (APE), PrimecheQ is designed to ensure healthy aging in one’s prime years, and HealthcheQ is a premium brand of executive check-up that offers comprehensive medical tests with pampering treats. These have remained successful in providing the utmost health care needs of clients’ and patients’ needs. However, after studying the market’s demand, Healthway determined there is already a need to come up with more packages.

Thus, Healthway launched recently at the Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City a new executive check-up set dubbed “Healthy Lifestyle Bundles” that offers a variety of packages customized for customers’ lifestyle needs. It includes science-based personalized coaching and medical consultation to help start and maintain new healthy behaviors.

WellCheQ provides patients a full evaluation of their health via a comprehensive executive check-up, while PhysicalCheQis a comprehensive medical examination package that evaluates the status of one’s health

As a response to the growing number of weight, heart and diabetes health issues among Filipinos, Healthy Lifestyle Bundles suggests WeightCheq, HeartCheq, and DiabetesCheq, all relevant tests designed to help patients screen or monitor their weight, heart and blood sugar levels.

Even professional and non-professional/recreational athletes will also find the Healthy Lifestyle Bundles’ SportsCheQ very appropriate as it gives special care to the sports enthusiast by thoroughly evaluating their physical condition. 

All these packages are beneficial to combat self-inflicted diseases like diabetes, hypertension and obesity, all preventable through Healthway’s Preventive Health Cycle: embracing the “SEED” Lifestyle (Sleep, Eat Right, Exercise, De-Stress), conducting a quick self-check and consulting a medical professional regularly.

Also present during the launch were Healthway Medical’s partners such as Fitness Army and Nestlé Philippines, and one of its brand ambassadors, professional athlete JV Wong, who is also Chief Executive of People Ignite, an organization and development company in the country.
