INFOGRAPHIC: Are you part of ‘Generation O?’
A new study indicates that Filipinos are among the overworked, overweight, and overwhelmed in Asia. What can you do about it?

MANILA, Philippines – The 20- to 30-somethings of this era go by many labels: Millennials. Digital Natives. Generation Z.

Now, new research from Sun Life Financial Asia suggests that today’s young professionals may fall under a new category – “Generation O.”

If you feel that you are always overworked, have gotten overweight, and overwhelmed, then you’re a part of this demographic.

The findings are part of Sun Life’s Asia Health Index Survey, which was conducted across eight markets in the Asia Pacific. The survey questioned respondents on their attitudes towards healthy and active living, their health concerns for the future and expectations on access to healthcare.

The survey results show that Asians are most affected by and are concerned about health and lifestyle conditions that are often preventable.

“While people want to make changes in areas of their lives that are largely within their control, such as exercise, nutrition, and stress management – that desire hasn’t yet been successfully translated into action that leads to sustained behavior change,” said Riza Mantaring, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Life Financial Philippines.

In this infographic, we highlight results from the Filipinos who took part in the survey. See if you can relate. –
