One morning, you wake up after a long night’s sleep, exhausted from the stressful, piled-up schoolwork rattling your thoughts for the past week. You stare at the blank ceiling, overthinking what your future holds if you leave these requirements untouched.
You started questioning your self-worth, reflecting on the many years you think you’re going to waste if you do not focus on those papers and exams. You, then, spend the next few hours pondering on these negative thoughts, still stuck on the bed, with some tears rolling down your cheeks. As time passes by, you realized you’re already late for your first class.
You feel like staying at home, but you force yourself to get ready so you can still attend the next few lectures. A few hours later, you find yourself on the jeepney, on the bus, or on the train, still being attacked by the negative imagery created by your own thoughts. They stay on even when you arrive home.
Plenty of schoolwork was added to your plate, yet you don’t feel like doing them as a battle continues to ensue with you and your thoughts. You just go directly to bed and cry yourself to sleep.
That is one of many, many scenarios being experienced by members of Generation Z (Gen Z) nowadays with regard to their mental health. Most days are ongoing battles with their thoughts, and most of the time, they just stand helpless, not knowing what to do.
And getting help could prove difficult for young people, especially because of their limited financial capacity and the country’s limited health services.
A little help can go a long way to finding your inner peace, and that is what Globe Prepaid is here for with their latest offering, Go+99 with GoHEALTH.
Mental health first
As Gen Zs near the path to adulthood and the responsibilities that come with it, they should be encouraged to put health on top of their priorities, especially with the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country.
They should always be reminded that it is important to keep their immune system strong so they can continue working on themselves towards a better future.
But, most importantly, mental health should also be of great importance to Gen Zs, as they get ready to discover their role in society and the world.
Some, if not all, might feel the pressure about that kind of responsibility and they might get lost in crippling anxiety and self-doubt. With this, they all need the help they could get.
Thankfully, Gen Zs have a companion in Globe Prepaid who provides access to health services through their Go+99 with GoHEALTH, giving their subscribers options to avail of a 49-peso discount on medical deliveries with HealthNow or one free mental health consultation with KonsultaMD, all these apart from the 8GB data they can get for all website visits and unlimited text to all networks good for 7 days.
“Transitioning to adulthood is no easy feat for the youth, especially with the amount of pressure surrounding them that manifests in their overall wellbeing. Understanding this, Globe Prepaid continues to innovate its products and services with Go+99 with GoHEALTH so they can prioritize and take charge of their health and wellness, allowing them to navigate their daily life with more inner peace and confidence to own the future,” says Givielle Florida, Head of Globe Prepaid.
