Physical well-being

This pillar recognizes that our daily habits and behaviors have an impact on our health, our well-being and our quality of life in general. In the session led by physical trainers Jim and Toni Saret, participants will learn how being well with oneself can help develop physical well-being. Coach Jim and Toni will even share a few exercises that can help boost energy and keep you feeling great all day.

Emotional and mental well-being

This pillar helps people think, feel and act in ways that positively impact their overall condition. FEU Manila Guidance Director and Licensed Psychologist Dr. Shiela Marie “Shake” Hocson will lead this session. It aims to strengthen our inner strength through mental and emotional well-being. Amidst all of the digital noise in our daily lives, it’s important to develop emotional and mental well-being to become more resilient.

Financial well-being

This pillar is about empowering people to have control over their financial future. Led by Stock Smarts CEO and personal financial consultant Marvin Germo, this session will examine how financial preparation can help relieve anxiety. Good financial planning can help eliminate unnecessary worries and allow you to focus on the most important things in life.

Jun Marasigan, Director of FWD’s Life Insurance Agency, will also be on hand to explain how FWD can help you prepare for and protect your future.

Social well-being

This pillar is about social health, or the ability of individuals to form healthy and rewarding interpersonal relationships with their community and environment. Doctors Dr Hanna Palomar and Dr Kathryn Tan will share how building good, heart-warming relationships can bring us joy.

The event will also include a session on Holistic Health and Wellness with TOWNS (Outstanding Women in Service to the Nation) and TOYM (Ten Outstanding Young Men), Dr Ging Zamora. Dr Zamora will discuss how taking care of ourselves holistically can help us get the most out of life and celebrate it.
