During week 13 IEGS focused on promoting physical activity as part of our proactive work in raising awareness for health and wellbeing for all ages. Inline with the Sustainable Development Goal #3 Health, IEGS aims to spread awareness, create opportunities to practice what we preach, and engage in conversations with students and staff on different health topics.
For me this was the most active I have been in a week in probably months. Since I help to organise the activities I also try to participate in as many as I possibly can to support the staff and students who engage in them.
What we offered during week 13:
- Monday morning workout (every week at 9.10 in the gym)
- Tuesday Zumba
- Wednesday Soma Move with the Yoga club (every week at 17.30)
- Step counting competition (staff and students)
A BIG THANK YOU to all staff and students who participated in the activities! Besides making me very happy and proud, you probably also got some nice healthy benefits. Congratulations to Curie House who won the Step counting competition! Remember these 8 reasons why physical activity such as walking is so important:
So yes, take that short walk!
