Keeping the family team spirit alive in the new normal
One silver lining of the pandemic is the new found closeness of many families who now enjoy a lot of time being together. The team spirit is strong during the lockdown as the crisis saw family members looking after one another’s safety and spending more time under one roof. As the country adapts to the new normal, AXA Philippines, the official insurance partner of the NBA in the Philippines, shares a game plan to maintain the closeness of your family—your no. 1 team—with or without a lockdown situation.
Schedule meals together at least once a week. Dining together allows the family to share their stories, thoughts, and even problems, with each other. Now that the lockdown has been eased and some are back to work at the office, continue to find time to bond and schedule meals as a family at least once or twice a week. Regularly eating meals together fosters a closer, more positive dynamic at home.
Protect each other through life’s ups and downs. Protecting one another is one of the greatest acts of love you can show your family. Helping them become financially secure is also one of the best ways to protect them. A good way to start is to have an insurance-investment plan that helps your family to continue living well in case of an untimely event. AXA Philippines’ Asset Master is a good example of an insurance product that allows you to diversify your investment, plan your estate, and protect your business.
Practice healthy habits together. Following a healthier lifestyle is easier and more fun when done with the company of people. As a bonding activity, schedule at least 30 to 60 minutes of workout sessions at least once a week with your family. Try running or playing sports together and then continue your health and wellness session by preparing nutritious meals together.
Be ‘together/apart’ with family living elsewhere. It’s unfortunate that we cannot visit our relatives’ homes as freely as we used to, but we still can bond with them just the same. Continue to spend fun times together by allotting your weekends for game or face-time night. Board game classics such as Scrabble, Twister, and chess are among several activities that have online counterparts that you can play with other people remotely.
Through life’s ups and downs, family will always remain constant, the team you can always count on. Protect and treasure each other by following these tips suggested by AXA. To know more about Asset Master, talk to a financial advisor or visit www.axa.com.ph.
