‘Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all,’ the famous song goes, but does anybody know what it really means?
Loving yourself can mean a lot of things to different people, but the common denominator is, when you love yourself, you are more likely to choose people and things that are better for your overall well-being.
Check out these tips from AXA, one of the country’s leading insurance companies, and start giving yourself the TLC (tender loving care) you rightfully deserve.
Have some alone time.
Think of solitude as a beautiful blessing instead of a curse. If you are afraid of your own company, you will never have the pleasure of knowing who you are and what you are truly capable of. Carve out some alone time, and devote it to activities such as writing in a journal or reading a book, so you can rejuvenate and discover more about yourself.
Travel alone at least once a year.
Traveling alone can boost your self-confidence because you are the one in charge of your “ship.” Go on exciting adventures this year and be safe with AXA Smart Traveller, a comprehensive travel insurance product. It has a wide range of benefits including 24-hour travel assistance, personal accident coverage of up to P5 million, medical coverage, protection of personal belongings, and refunds for travel inconveniences.
Avoid your stress triggers.
The first step in knowing how to manage stress is identifying your triggers. Some possible triggers are urgent deadlines at work or new social situations. It is important to learn to cope with stress. Studies show stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Most people successfully handle their stressors through a more active lifestyle, better eating habits, and making to-do lists.
Invest in a great health insurance.
Successful people invest in their health so they can be strong for themselves and the people they love. Make it a point to obtain policies that are flexible and have great coverage. AXA Health Start grants you protection against the top critical illnesses for as low as ₱1,500 monthly. AXA Health Max offers medical coverage for 56 major and 18 minor critical conditions up to age 100. For both plans, you can choose to have up to ₱10 million in health benefits. For an extra layer of security, be protected with AXA Global Health Access (GHA), which gives world-class medical coverage locally and in any country in the world. It allows you to choose your doctor of preference even outside of its network but can also opt to avail of the cashless transaction for more convenience.
Begin the journey of self-love and never settle for anything less because you deserve the best. Focus on making proactive and healthy choices for your future self’s well-being.
