Gift of wellness for the ‘Queen’ of the house
Our moms are the heart of our homes. They possess that magic of easing our worries and fears, cheering us up when we are down and keeping the family together especially during trying times.
At the same time that no other thing can comfort us like a mother’s loving touch, moms also have that formidable air, like a boss who you would never want to mess with. They can sense when their children are up to no good and they have that power to rein us in even before we can make trouble.
Take over her chores
We wake up each day to a table laden with breakfast and come home at night with dinner already waiting for us, all thanks to our moms.
This coming Mother’s Day, why not switch roles, and do all the cooking instead?
Have her sit back and relax the entire day while you take care of matters in the kitchen. And while you’re at it, make her feel like a queen by making sure that the day’s chores are all done without your mom needing to lift a finger. Take over the cleaning, the laundry, even doing the grocery. Let her have that well deserved day off from running the household.
Mom’s day out
A lot of establishments are offering Mother’s Day treats and specials, so why not have a mommy’s day out?
Bring her to her favorite mall and treat her to a surprise shopping spree, or take her on a festive food trip at her choice of restaurants. But if you are both feeling a bit adventurous, go and explore a new commercial district and have a blast getting lost and discovering new shops.
Keep her healthy
Every day, we ask The One Up There to keep our loved ones in good health and free from any sickness. This may be a good time to schedule an annual physical exam with your mom to make sure that she is always in the pink of health.
Trusted health maintenance organization MediCard Philippines Inc. has a wide range of services at its free-standing clinics all over the metro for you and your mom’s wellness needs.
Aside from physical exams, MediCard offers medical evaluations; physical therapy; consultations in dermatology, ENT, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, and orthodontics; and wellness programs from which your mom can benefit.
Staying true to its commitment to provide quality, affordable healthcare to more Filipinos, MediCard is open even to nonmembers. They can consult from any among its competent pool of doctors and nurses who can provide assistance to those who would require it.
No matter how you plan on celebrating Mother’s Day with your mom, one thing is certain: it does not matter whether you’re splurging on your gift or treating mom to a simple surprise. What counts most to her is that you will make her feel loved on her special day.
