Benefits of Having Health Card

Yearly we have to undergo annual physical examination as requirement of the company to ensure that employees are healthy and fit to work. Since we have health cards all we have to do is go to accredited clinics and all checkups and examinations are free. It’s one kind of benefit that really helps the employees especially that medical checkups and treatment are very expensive these days. 

Anyway annual physical exams include blood pressure test, eye examination, weight and height checkup, complete physical examination, blood tests, urinalysis, fecalysis, examinations using xray and ecg machines for men and women above 35 years and papsmear for women starting 35 years of age. 

I was happy that I’ve passed all tests with normal findings despite having some excess pounds. The examining doctor just advised me of how I can manage my weight and how I can lose some weight through healthy meals, water therapy and plenty of exercise. Actually even before the APE I was following those rules but these days I was so stressed with office moving out that I was lagging behind my exercise schedule.


Influx of Students in Public Schools

I learned through my church mates that public high school in their area has reached over the maximum capacity it can accommodate to teach properly. Its normal capacity has two class shifts in a day which schedules students in the morning and afternoon shift. They usually has 60 students in one class and this number is only normal to teachers. But now due to economic crisis there’s an influx of students from private schools who transferred in public schools. 

Reality sets in that some families has decreased their standard of living due to unemployment and hardship in looking for a decent job. Because of this parents don’t have a choice but to seek for a way that their kids can continue studying even without money to pay for tuition fees. Public school management is not allowed to reject enrollees from entering their schools which resulted in 100 students in every class. 

Now bigger problems arise with greater number of students in one class because there will be demands for more classroom chairs, text books and most important of all the teachers that will impart knowledge to them. I know that this situation has been escalated to the proper agency and I hope that they will do some smart solutions in bringing up good education not only to those who can afford to pay but to those who can’t as well.


Focusing on Healthy Lifestyle Again

My friends and I are into healthy lifestyle and habits and we promised ourselves that we’re going to be more disciplined this coming year. One of the things that we should be more focused is getting the right exercise and with it came the suggestion of one that we try out yoga for a change and buy yoga equipment next month to start the unique kind of exercise. Well I will try it of course even if I’m more comfortable with my old and tested cardio workout, zumba and tae-bo. 

Last year I was on a one-hour daily exercise and workout which improved my health but I gradually stopped due to busy schedule. Hope I will be forced to get back into the groove again and start the regular workout exercises again. Of course it will be matched with proper and healthy diet meals to be more effective. Last year I lost 1 kilo in a month so I’m pretty positive that it will work on me again.
