Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong has ordered the inclusion of a 5-minute exercise in the flag-raising ceremony at the Baguio City Hall.
“I want a Monday activity, just to prop-up our wellness program,” Magalong said.
“The Monday morning exercise will lighten up the mood of the employees which is good for mental health.”
He said the Monday morning exercise will not just lighten up the mood of the employees which is good for mental health and will also allow them to sweat even for just a few minutes of continuous physical exercise.
Magalong added the order was to encourage everybody to participate, not just the city officials.
Next time, everyone will dance, not just the city officials.”
“Some people there would like to dance pero nahihiya lang siguro (but were just shy). Next time, lahat ng tao sasayaw hindi lang officials (everyone will dance not just the city officials),” he noted.
Magalong said exercise also adds zest, which might further heighten the employees’ enthusiasm to start the week’s work.
During Monday’s flag-raising, the dance part was greatly applauded by the employees present, expressing desire to have it as part of the program.
