Feeling Stronger, Doing Good
Nearly a third of people believe their muscles have weakened during the lockdown as their regular exercise routines were disrupted.
This is a worry for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and Sport England, who conducted the survey, because muscle loss can lead to long-term problems with balance and mobility, which, in turn, can lead to more serious health conditions.
It is the first step back in to exercise that is by far the hardest. Key is to start small and for many people, they need a reason such as a good cause, to pull themselves off the sofa and away from watching Netflix. Why not make your good reason to get moving for World Games For Wildlife?
Talking about Netflix, if one of the programs you watched was Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet, you know that wildlife and the natural world need our help now, more than ever.
If you have got out of your healthy regular exercise habit during lockdown, we hope you consider registering for the World Games For Wildlife as a way to get your motivation back. And you will be part of a global team (or maybe I should say herd) working to support our wildlife teammates.
Three charities have joined forces to create a platform that allows our supporters to create their own fundraising event based on their personal interests and fitness goals. The funds raised will go towards established programs devoted to saving the world’s most endangered animals.
We hope you will join us.
