New Year, New Me!

By Adrian Notter - January 17th, 2022 | Posted in News

Our students and staff are working together to help improve mental health and physical well-being by collectively walking 10,000 steps or 1 mile every day. For the month of January, classes will timetable in an outside walk a day; come rain, snow or shine! As they sign out each day, we have asked them to write the ‘reason’ as New Year, New Me.

Why? Because walking for just 12-20 minutes a day:

  • Allows your body and brain time to regulate
  • Gives you vitamin D for a healthy body
  • Can create healthier and strong muscle
  • Improves both gross and fine motor skills
  • Helps with weight control
  • Helps you feel better
  • Improves your digestion
  • Help you relax
  • Provides pain relief
  • Changes your health heart
  • Changes your brain activity
