Event Detail

How many reasons can we find to delay or avoid exercising?

“I haven’t got time.”                                                    “I can’t get motivated.”                

“I need equipment I don’t have.”                              “I don’t know what to do.”

“There aren’t any facilities near me.”                      “I’m worried about Covid.”

“I’m scared I might injure myself.”                           “I don’t feel fit enough to start.”

“I’m too tired.”                                                              “I just don’t enjoy it.”   

… Whether you love it or hate it!

… Whether you’re in good health or struggle with exercise due to health conditions.

Come to November’s Life Lounge and explore how physical activity and exercise can benefit a range of physical and mental health conditions.  You’ll hear plenty of ideas on how to up your movement level, have the option to try out an authentic movement session, and engage in both interactive and reflective activities around motivation and overcoming barriers to exercise.
