Philippines Ranks Among the Highest in Asia for Lack of Exercise and Physical Activities

Based on a recent report for Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index, the Philippines is among the highest percentage on Asia that lacks exercise and physical activities. This is truly alarming for us Filipinos. According to the said research conducted recently, the reasons given by most Pinoys range from lack of time and energy as well as "distractions" in varied lifestyles particularly social media.

Based on the said research done in 2016, 61 percent of the population in the country did not engaged in any regular physical activity. The participants came from the so-called Generation O--individuals who are considered to be overworked, overweight and overwhelmed. It's pretty amazing that despite these reasons, Filipinos are still optimistic about their overall health. So yes, there is hope. And Sun Life Financial, being one of the most trusted and leading brands for financial insurance, understands this alarming problem. Thus, they created campaigns as well as programs that addresses these problems.
