We know that looking after our physical and mental health is more important now than ever. Alongside our biweekly challenges, here are a few other activities focused on health and wellbeing:
Running & Walking: If you can, try and get outside and run or walk, always observing correct social distancing protocol. Spending time in green spaces in particular can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing.
Yoga: Yoga does not have to be complicated, and it is a great way of stretching out your muscles and relaxing your mind, especially if you’re feeling tense. All you need is comfy clothes and a small amount of floor space. You can find lots of free yoga videos on YouTube and many are quick stretches under 10 minutes.
Breathing exercises: It can feel strange to do a mindfulness exercise for the first time, but take a moment to give one of them a try and you might just find out if it’s for you. Sometimes it just takes a little practice. Many people find that when they are tense or their thoughts are racing, slowing down and focusing on their breath has a very calming effect. There are lots of resources online for relaxation techniques - Mind is great for this. There are also many free and easy to use apps which you can download to your phone or tablet, such as Headspace and Pacifica.
