eMentalFitChallenge - Congratulations
Linked in

Dear Participant,


Congratulations! You've completed the 7-day eMentalFitChallenge

The goal of this eChallenge has been to encourage you to look for active living strategies and opportunities as staying active is important in times of mental stress and anxiety brought on by this crisis and the return to work period.

Attention was drawn to matters affecting your mental health, and tools were provided to help alleviate stress, anxiety and to take a new perspective on happiness. This first eChallenge was the beginning of a process to take your physical health into account to maintain and achieve healthy mental health.

By now, you should have experienced the benefits of spending only few minutes a day exercising, you have learned to implement strategies and use proven tools to reduce daily stress and anxiety levels to maintain a healthy mental state.

Love this eChallenge? Join the eMoveBetterChallenge on the National Kinesiology Week from Nov. 23-29 2020. Visit www.nationalkinesiologyweek.ca for more information.

How did you progress?

Complete this 5-minute survey about stress again.

The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) is one of the most widely used instruments for measuring the perception of stress. It measures the degree to which situations stress you. Take the survey again at the end of the 7-day eChallenge.

You can now compare results from the earlier text taken on day 1 to those of today. The PSS shows your success in reducing in your perceived stress.

Everyday Exercises from your eMentalFitChallenge

Throughtout this eMentalFitChallenge you were introduced to a series of different exercises. You are invited to revisit them with the links from each day (below).

Refer to them anytime. Create a routine in your everyday activities.

Being more active is very safe for most people, however, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming physically active. If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, consult a Kinesiologist to guide you through your process. Find a kinesiologist near you

As health professionals, Kinesiologists apply exercise and movement science to promote health and well-being; prevent, manage and rehabilitate injuries; treat illness and chronic disease; restore function, and optimize human performance in the workplace, clinical settings, sport and fitness.

Kinesiologists are the only human movement specialists that use science and research to offer movement as medicine to any person with a health or fitness goal, who want a hands-on, personalized approach. Kinesiologists work with people of all ages, and physical abilities, in many settings, to help them achieve their health and wellness goals. They improve quality of life, often using interventions that include physical activity.

Stay Tuned for the Next eChallenge:
