Feel Good Inside and Out

Be closer to health inside and out with Facets of Wellness.

When people hear the word “wellness”, the first image that pops into their minds is usually a doctor in a spotless white coat, examining a patient in the hospital. However, health is more than just about the physical. It is over-all feeling great in body, mind, emotion, and spirit.

Promoting this is Facets of Wellness, a two-day exhibit and conference on holistic wellness slated on September 14-15 at Function Rooms 1 and 2, 3rd level, SMX Convention Center, Pasay City. It’s part of the Manila International Book Fair, the country’s largest and longest-running book fair.

The conference will run from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm on both days of the event. Each day will be divided into an afternoon and evening session wherein a different aspect of wellness will be highlighted.

Featured on the morning session of September 14, 2012 is financial and occupational wellness. Dr. Francisco Colayco, a well-renowned entrepreneur and financial adviser, will speak on the topics “Be Your Own Boss” and “Healthy Money Attittudes and Habits”. The afternoon session, on the other hand, will focus on physical and environmental wellness with topics such as “Lifestyle Diseases:  A Silent Disaster” by cardiologist Dr. Anthony Leachon, “Sports and Fitness for a Healthy Lifestyle” by Prof. Hercules Callanta of University of the Philippines-Diliman’s College of  Human Kinetics, “Steps to Fitness” by renowned sports journalist and TV host Dyan Castillejo, and “Positive Nutritional Habits” by nutritionist Dr. Sani Rose Orbeta.

The morning session of September 15 is all about emotional and spiritual wellness with topics such as “Are You OK?” by clinical psychologist Dr. Teresa Gustilo-Villasor and “Do You Have a Sacred Space?” by Rev. Fr. Ruben Tanseco, SJ”. In the afternoon, the focus shifts to mental and social wellness with talks on “Am I People Smart?” by licensed family counselor Ms. Harriet Hormilosa, and “How Do I Take Care of My Brain?” by neurologist Dr. Pia Banico.
On the other hand, the exhibit will feature various booths from different industries such as medicine, beauty, fashion and lifestyle, fitness, relaxation, food, and books. It will run from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm on both days.
