Is dancing your passion? Your dance moves could be the start of something meaningful. With Natural Quality Corporation’s (NQC) AMP UP Dance Challenge, you can turn your love for dancing into social advocacy for a charity that helps underprivileged school kids receive educational tools for their blended education during this COVID-19 Health Crisis.
In partnership with Radio Veritas (the flagship Catholic Radio Station in the Philippines), NQC has launched this “social advocacy” initiative that would allow its participants to “Dance for a Cause” that would allow them to donate an “educational computer tablet” for the use a poor student to whom they would choose to give to. Over and above the health advocacy that goes hand-in-hand with this social media campaign, this initiative gives everyone the opportunity to help a student in need by giving him/her the educational tool for his/her e-learning modality.
As a “social advocacy” the AMP-UP Dance Challenges seeks to use its brand influence to equally promote dancing as a form of exercise to help boost one’s immune system. Dancing exercise likewise controls cholesterol levels in the blood, as well as helping to set blood sugar levels. If you suffer from high blood pressure then dancing could well be the prime exercise for you. Dancing can likewise burn between 200 and 400 calories so why not run away from that tedious treadmill training and dance along to this fitness groove?
This is especially relevant in the Philippines where chronic lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity incidence are of epidemic proportions. This AMP-UP Dance Challenge lends its platform to create awareness for the youth and for the elders that it is never too early or too late to buy-in on good health through an exercise like dancing.
Moreover, the Dance Challenge not only encourages the participation of family members and friends, but it also helps promote the “bonding process” among loved ones, which generally helps promote good mental health under this “new normal”. Regular dancing exercise will also reduce mental tension and lead you on the path to a stress-free mind. Dance stimulates happiness endorphins in the brain to alleviate day-to-day worries and concerns. If nothing else, dance is cheaper than going to a psychiatrist.
Another significant element of this social advocacy is its messaging. Contained within the jingle are core values of Health and Wellness.
The words, “Ang Kalusugan ay Yaman” (Health is Wealth) reminds us that good health is considered valuable and precious to every individual. Sound health does not only mean the absence of disease in the body but a complete physical, mental, social as well as spiritual well-being of an individual. [We] endeavor for personal success often at the cost of our health. We only really appreciate the value of health once we’ve had it and then lost it again. [We] take our health and our bodies for granted until we’re broken, in pain or burnt-out psychologically. We try to undo years of unhealthy habits often when it’s too little too late. [We] put other precedence ahead of our health.
To “AMP-UP” (in British English means to “work up”) as this campaign suggests, encourages the participants to “work up” on one’s Health and Wellness through Healthy Diet and Exercise. And while diet is the best way to get the nutrients you need, dietary supplements can be an important way to fill in the gaps.
