Keep Moving

headspace has teamed up with the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians to offer some tips on how you might keep moving at home during the COVID-19 restrictions to keep you physically and mentally healthy.

 

headspace has teamed up with The Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians to launch the Keep Moving campaign, that shows some of Australia’s biggest sports stars joining together to demonstrate the importance of exercise and activity in not only keeping our bodies fit and healthy, but in maintaining our mental health too.

The series of videos filmed at home by Adam Goodes (former AFL), Samantha Stosur (tennis player), Alyssa Healey (cricket player), Tayla Harris (AFLW) and Chris O’Connell (tennis player), shows what they are doing to keep active to support their physical and mental health.

Along with The Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians, we want to encourage all Australians to keep moving during COVID-19, to make sure we get the benefits of staying physically fit for both our bodies and our minds, and provides ideas on how we might all incorporate more activities in our day.

So what are you doing to keep moving in iso?
