But has the busy actor been truly walking his talk of self-care?
John Lloyd answered the question during the newest campaign launch of the paracetamol brand promoting "Alagang Walang Pinipili," on November 18, 2022.
FINDING YOUR CENTER
Talking about how he has kept up with his "ingat" tagline, he said, "It doesn’t happen everyday na hindi mo alam kung saan yung center mo.
"There are more challenging days than the rest of the days, pero it’s important to go back and find that center. Ang laki ng nagagawa niya.
"Mostly, we start internally, e, and then kung makuha mo siya, wala ka nang aalalahanin for the rest of the day.
"It’s important yung to be active, especially yung first two hours upon waking up.
John Lloyd turned bashful at one point as he reminded, "Ayoko naman mag-lecture dito, pero yung mga ganung habits very elemental sa well-being natin.
"These things, for the longest time, I’ve been taking for granted yung internal care.
"Pero na-realize ko ang laki ng impact niya kung magagwa mo siya and mape-preserve mo siya and yung maging habit mo siya so ayun.
He paused then smirked, "Kasi yung sa diet medyo, alam mo naman masarap kumain, di ba, so kailangan mo siyang balansehin din. So ayun, one of the things.
"Well malaki din yung papel ng mga tao around you. With the people you surround yourself with, they also play a very important part."
John Lloyd explained that a different approach must be taken when dealing either with mental stress or physical stress.
John Lloyd said, "The mental stress siguro, always take a beat. Always take a beat.
"Manahimik ka muna, reassess kung ano man yung nasa harap mo. I think that’s very important, parang I had to learn that the hard way.
"Kasi siyempre dala rin ng trabaho ko, yung line of job, di ba, almost every day I deal with my emotions.
"I manipulate my emotions to a point na hindi mo na siya alam i-handle kasi siya na yung nag l-lead sa iyo.
"Like tingin ko masyado ko nang na-exploit yung emotions ko to a point na ganun pala iyon. Naging challenging talaga siya.
"Naging sobrang reactive mo because yun yung dinedemand sa iyo ng trabaho mo.
"So nung nagkaroon ako ng time to take a pause, isa yun sa mga natutunan ko, yung importance ng silence.
"Taking a beat kung merong nasa harap mo na, ‘Uy, medyo overwhelming ito!’
"Yung very brief moment na yun before you say anything, that’s the most crucial moment na kung hindi mo siya babantayan, it becomes a habit."
On the other hand, John Lloyd has a pretty straightforward solution to handling physical stress.
"The physical stress is very obvious, di ba? Kung ang machine bumibigay, di ba katawan din natin. So importante yung how we restore our energies.
"Napakalaking bagay especially if you need to present yourself on a regular basis to a lot of people, parang importante how you take care of yourself physically.
"Simple lang naman iyan—kung wala kang tulog, wag kang mag-expect na di ka magiging cranky or hindi ka mukhang pagod o puyat.
"So ayun, like a lot of things, I had to learn that the hard way also."
