A positive mindset AND access to supportive resources is best way to tackle the issueRelease of 'The Long Walk', starring Clear Ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo, sees him share his own resilience story  SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 13 June 2019 - Clear, a global anti-dandruff hair care brand of Unilever, today announces the launch of a global campaign - #KeepAClearHead - aimed at equipping young people with the support and tools they need to become more resilient in the face of rising social anxiety.   To help highlight the issue, the brand has released 'The Long Walk', a film starring celebrity ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo which gives viewers an insight into the journey he takes in preparing for a match.   In the film, Ronaldo urges young people to keep a clear head as they go through their own Long Walk, encouraging them to be more resilient in the face of life's challenges.     In The Long Walk, Ronaldo explains: "I have taken this walk a thousand times and still the first step is the hardest. I can hear my heart beating in my head, but I give each beat a name: Spirit, courage, greatness. As the noise rises around me, a roar rises in my throat. Your love makes me strong, your hate makes me unstoppable."   Clear believes that everyone should be able to perform at their best. However, social anxiety, defined by the 'fear of being judged', can stop people from performing at their full potential. Globally, over 284 million individuals suffer from anxiety disorders[1], a quarter of whom are between the ages of 10 and 24[2].

Social anxiety has become a major problem for many young people around the world as more and more expectations are placed on them to succee ......read more

For his health and wellness – Surprise your family hero with the perfect Father's Day gift

HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 13 June 2019 - With Father's Day coming up, how are you planning on celebrating it? Sons and daughters should rack their brains for weeks, trying to impress their superheroes with a perfect gift on this special occasion -- something that should be practical but not too predictable. Have you ever pondered what fathers do need most? Certainly is health and wellbeing. Yet most men in Hong Kong are not keen on undergoing checks, even when they belong to the group facing the most risks from overwhelming work stress and pressure, entertainment occasions involving heavy drinking and high-calorie meals, as well as being stuck in an unhealthy lifestyle with not much physical exercise. As a result, men in the thick of middle age would start to confront some serious health threats such as a fatty or hardened liver, or problems from enlarged prostate (prostatic hypertrophy), which could have been prevented if early diagnosis and intervention were in place in time.   Swindon Medical is celebrating Father's Day by joining hands with you to promote the health of your beloved ones with professional medical screening and health check packages for men of different age groups, as well as tailored checks for meeting individual's needs. People can contact the clinic and schedule an appointment for a professional consultation for further details.
