Sanofi celebrates International Self Care Day with Power To Love Yourself Completely Online Event

Manila, Philippines — In celebration of International Self Care Day, Sanofi Philippines held an Instagram Live event called Power to Love Yourself Completely to discuss topics related to self care. Sanofi invited MommaNManila founder Michelle Aventajado and She Talks Asia Co-Founder and CEO Lynn Pinugo to talk about self care, with topics such as how to teach kids about self care, and how working millennials can take care of themselves while working from home.

In line with the Global Self-Care Federation’s theme, #SelfCarePromise, the event also invited everyone to share their self care promises online, empowering the viewers to take the step towards taking care of themselves even in the smallest ways.


Promoting a holistic approach to health is a big part of Sanofi’s Panata, and encouraging others to practice self care is a part of this. Jill Ong-Lim, Group Brand Manager of Sanofi Consumer Healthcare shared, “We need to realize that self sare in itself is the goal. Not just for others, but just for yourself. ”


Janeena Chan moderated the discussion, sharing her own experience and tips for practicing self care. “Your reality is shaped within your mind, so as long as you know that you can get back up again, you’ll be okay.”


For Lynn Pinugo, it’s important that we know the difference between self soothing and self care. “Self soothing are those emergency routines that we do when we’re feeling bad, while self care are the things that you do so you build emotional agility. For self care, it’s the things you do so you don’t gas out, it’s more for the long term.”


As a mom, Michelle Aventajado also pointed out that self care can be anything simple. “Self care can be so many things. For me, it’s waking up early enough and having quiet time for myself, reading my bible and drinking coffee. For me, it’s to rest when I’m tired, stop when I’m overwhelmed, pause and reflect. And when my kids see me doing that, I’m setting an example.”


The event was attended by over 100 participants who shared their own self care promises via the comments section.


Sanofi Philippines encourages everyone to make their own self care promises via selfcarepromise.org and share them on Instagram, tagging @sanofi.ph, with the hashtags #SelfCarePromise, #ISCD21, and #HealthierPhilippines.

Very well said , ang gaganda ng sagot nila at sanofi really cares about our health , totoo kahit mommy na tayo at super busy lets make way para sa ating sarili, a me time is a big help para magrelax at gawin ang nakakapagpaligaya sa atin.

Ako ang po ang pinakaselfcare ko po is yung mga comfort foods na gusto kong kainin, take time din para mag ayos sa sarili, at yung time para magexercise at importante yung time para magdasal , yan talaga narerelax po ako ng sobra nakakatanggal din ng stress at bigat ng loob.

In the end of the time mas recharge na tayo harapin ang bukas ng may ngiti😊
