4 Health Tips During This Rainy Season

The coronavirus may be the main concern of many people right now, but it’s still important to be wary of the other diseases you can get during this time. With the rainy season, the damp and humid weather can lead to an increase of several viruses, most especially the flu.

 
A contagious illness and a serious public health concern, the flu can be severe and deadly. In some cases, complications may lead to viral or bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and ear and sinus infections, especially in children. It may also cause central nervous system and heart problems and inflammation of the heart and of the sac around it. Moreover, a more severe flu infection may worsen long-term medical conditions, like congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes.

The World Health Organization stated that the flu is linked to three to five million cases of severe illness and approximately 290,000 to 650,000 deaths worldwide each year. With these risks, it is a must for us to protect ourselves against this infection, especially during this season.

AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurance providers, offers some tips to stave off the flu and its complications and stay healthy.

Avoid large crowds. The flu is contagious and is usually transmitted by droplets when someone with the virus coughs, sneezes, or talks. Since the flu virus spreads quickly in crowded and confined spaces, it’s best to stay at home and follow current quarantine protocols. However, when you really have to go outside to work or get your essentials, make sure to wear a mask and observe proper social distancing.

Clean your home. It’s best to clean and disinfect your home regularly since the flu virus can live on hard surfaces. Make sure to disinfect high-contact objects in your home, such as doorknobs, light switches, tables, and countertops, among others. Also, stock up on hand soaps and sanitizers so others in your home can clean their hands whenever they come in contact with these surfaces.

Boost your immune system. Having a strong immune system is your first line of defense against the flu as it can help your body fight off infections, decrease the severity of your illness and help you recover faster. Strengthen your immune system by having a healthy, nutrient-rich diet with fruits and vegetables, staying physically active, avoiding smoking and drinking, reducing your stress levels, and getting enough sleep.

Get a flu shot. Get in touch with your doctor for getting an annual flu vaccination. This is important to get every year because flu viruses evolve quickly and they adjust the vaccine accordingly each time. Having a flu shot not only protects you but helps protect others who are vulnerable to the flu.

Since the flu can be hard on your body, and serious complications may arise, it’s best to always be prepared. For medical concerns and expenses due to unexpected health setbacks, getting health insurance coverage can also be a big help. For instance, there’s AXA MyLifeChoice, a protection and investment plan that can be personalized into a health plan that prepares you for health setbacks with critical illness coverage for 57 critical illnesses, including heart attack, stroke, and cancer. MyLifeChoice gives you the freedom to personalize your plan according to your unique needs, budget, and more.

Reminders on How to Stay Healthy During Lockdown

With the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in different parts of the country, many cities and municipalities have already re-imposed stricter community quarantines that may last for a few weeks or longer.

We’ve been in a lockdown for more than a year so we essentially know how to keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy while staying at home, but a few reminders won’t hurt. To help you stay safe and protected during these times, AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurance providers, shares these important tips on how to stay healthy at home.

 
Eat healthy. As you stay safe at home, you can strengthen your body’s immune system by adopting a healthier diet. Be sure to consume more vegetables and fruits for a good dose of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Aside from COVID-19 prevention, this will also do wonders for your body as it can improve digestive health and lower your blood pressure, among many other health benefits.

Exercise at home. With more spare time on your hands, you can take an hour or two every day to do some workouts at home. For starters, you can check out YouTube and just follow simple fitness tutorial videos for beginners. Once you get used to it, this may also be the start of a new active lifestyle – lockdown or no lockdown.

Stock up on essentials. With the increase in COVID-19 cases, it’s best to stay away from crowded places. If you can, get everything you need in one trip when you visit your local supermarket, pharmacy, or convenience store. Better yet, have them delivered to your home. Don’t forget essential items to maintain your overall well-being, such as food, medicine, and hygiene and self-care products.

Wash and sanitize. Ever since the outbreak, medical experts have advised that the proper washing of hands is still the best way to prevent getting COVID-19. So, remember to do so whenever necessary. Also, carry a hand sanitizer or alcohol with you at all times in case there’s limited access to running water while you’re out for necessary commutes. It’s also best to sanitize items that you have delivered or taken home from the outside and other high touch point surfaces in your house, such as doorknobs, light switches, remote controls, and faucets and taps.

Take a social media detox. Nowadays, social media can be a source not only of valuable COVID information, but also of negative content such as bad or fake news, chaotic rants, humble brags, and other things that may cause loneliness, anxiety, and low self-esteem. This is mentally unhealthy, especially during isolation. Give yourself a bit of inner peace by taking a break. Channel your time and energy toward activities that may be a better use of your time, such as reading books, journaling, taking online classes, or doing short meditations.

Aside from these tips, AXA Philippines also strives to help you stay healthy and protected all year round with its extensive portfolio of health solutions. For example, with AXA Health Start, you and your family can prepare for health setbacks and get coverage for top critical illnesses namely heart attack, stroke, and cancer. The affordable policy covers your family in one plan with built-in coverage for child of insured against child critical conditions, and it covers two lives in the plan: the policyholder and a spouse, parent, or sibling. The plan also has life insurance coverage and flexible payment terms payable in 10 or 20 years.

Prevent Fire Mishaps this Summer and Always

If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us, it’s to always look after the things that matter the most, including the home that keeps us safe through these challenging times. Even amid a pandemic, fire cases in the country continue to rise, but these can be avoided with proper caution and preparation.

AXA Philippines is here to help you secure your home and your family’s safety with these tips:


Get a smart smoke detector. It's one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect yourself and your family. A smart smoke detector will give you an instant warning which can greatly reduce fire-related accidents. Another great thing about having smart devices at home is that they allow you to monitor remotely. In case a fire breaks out while you’re not home, your smart smoke detectors can send you an alert on your phone, so you can call the fire department or ask a neighbor to check on your house.

Mind your electricals. A common cause of fires in the country is faulty electrical wiring. Make sure to hire professional help when you smell anything burning or see flickering or dimming lights, as well as discoloration or scorch marks on your outlets. If the members of your household are working or studying from home, make sure to not overload your power outlets. Plug in only the appliances and devices that are necessary and don’t leave anything plugged in overnight. That way, you not only get to keep your house safe but also save money on energy bills.

Keep plants away from fire source. During quarantine, many have tried fostering their green thumb. Always be mindful of where you place your potted plants because they can easily catch fire. It’s also best not to have them in the kitchen. Instead, put them where they will be safe and aesthetically pleasing. Additionally, don’t put out cigarette butts in the soil of the plants. Most potting soils contain large volumes of peat moss, shredded wood, bark, and vermiculite – all of which are highly flammable.

Have an immediate emergency contact. Even if you try to be safe, emergencies can still happen anytime. AXA Philippines provides an enhanced emergency response service through Rescue Line, which is available for free for everyone. It’s a special 24/7 service accessible through Emma by AXA mobile app if you need emergency response such as in case of a fire, among other things. Rescue Line has a dedicated command center so you can receive help directly from the nearest fire station, thanks to its nationwide coverage. It also notifies not only the authorities but also your nominated loved ones simultaneously.
