We all know the many benefits of exercise on our physical wellness, and arguably as important,
is the positive impact of exercise on our wellbeing and mental health.
Exercising, even at a moderate level, can improve mood and create a sense of wellbeing in everyone. For those living with depression or mental health concerns, the benefits of regular exercise can play a significant role in improving mood and sense of wellbeing.
hi guys ..I am a little confused by what was publicized as a safety precaution when shopping in supermarkets. That 1 in and 1 out policy?
The other day I went to get some groceries, first time since the lockdown.
I queued up ..there were only a few of us and I thought to myself, thats good...there was a gazebo outside New World Pioneer Hyway , another plus point... How nice of the shop ...then the woman at the entrance said we could ALL go in ...
To my surprise, there was quite a crowd of shoppers inside already. It was difficult to keep the 2 m distance ..... I was in and out in 30 minutes. If there was a sick person inside, we would all be infected ...
I wish the shop would not let so many people in at the same time ..I would feel safer ...
Or was I being paranoid? what do you think?
We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.
