November 17 has been declared as National Students day. In line with this, last Saturday, the “FITFIL YOUTH AGAINST DRUGS (and Obesity)” campaign was launched. It was held at SM MOA By the Bay which was participated by almost 3,000 youth. National Youth Commission, through its Committee on Health, together with FitFil, the Dangerous Drugs Board, and other related stakeholders gathered so as to encourage more young people nationwide, to develop, encourage, and increase an active and healthy lifestyle among the youth.

Coach Jim and Toni Saret, The National Youth Commission (NYC), ABS-CBN Star Hunt Academy artists, together with the leading hair loss treatment in the country NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss, lead the launch last November 16, 2019.

Can regular exercise make your hair grow? Although hair growth never comes as a direct cause by exercise, mental and physical health challenges may interrupt the hair’s normal growth process which may lead to hair loss. However, regular cardio exercise, for example, can help improve your health and mood — discouraging any breaks in the natural hair growth cycle. 

The event highlighted the importance of physical fitness and exercise that redound to better mental and physical health and to also veer away to become unwilling victims of illegal drugs and substance abuse. 

Highlighting the event, The National Youth Commission headed by Commissioner Ryan Enriquez, pledged to donate 2 million pounds of excess fat from Filipino youth! This challenge is FITFIL’s way of rallying humanity to become more proactive in fighting lifestyle-related diseases responsible for almost 70% of all Global illnesses including deaths.

Flex those muscles and add zest to your life by following these tips on how to make yourself happier and healthier through an exercise in 6 Ways: 

1. Control your weight 
No matter how busy your schedule is, try to allocate time to go to the gym or just do some routines at home on a regular basis. 

2. Fight health conditions and illnesses 
Exercising regularly prevents many health malaise and concerns. These include stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, arthritis and a number of types of cancer. 

3. Enhance your mood 
Uplift your emotions simply by taking a brisk walk or a brief gym session. Engaging into some physical activities will help trigger different brain chemicals to make you feel more happy and relaxed. 

4. Boost your energy 
An exercise brings oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. What’s more, it aids in making more efficient your cardiovascular system. A well-functioning heart and a healthy lung will enable you to do your daily chores. 

5. Promote better sleep 
If you’re having a hard time to snooze, physical activity can make you fall asleep quicker and achieve quality slumber. 

6. Bond and have fun 
Beyond the health and physical gains, it’s more fun doing an exercise! For one, it allows you to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or just engage yourself in activities that bring you happiness. Second, it also serves as a bonding moment with your family or friends. Consider a dance class, hiking or enlist in a sports team. Look for a physical activity you’re interested with and just enjoy doing it. You’ll never know what you will discover about yourself in the end. 

Make that move. You’ve got nothing to lose.
