Earlier this week, the government revealed their new strategy to beat coronavirus and protect the NHS. It included:

  • A ban on TV and online adverts for food high in fat, sugar and salt before 9pm
  • End of deals like ‘buy one get one free’ on unhealthy food high in salt, sugar and fat
  • Calories to be displayed on menus
  • A new campaign to help people lose weight, get active and eat better

The World Health Organisation also states that the consequences of being obese can cause various health problems.

However, as has been shown, the pandemic has not just affected our physical health but our mental health as well. But, here again, being fit and healthy can help. As this infographic posted on the WHISC Facebook page shows, being active activates a whole host of ‘Happiness Chemicals’.

Infographic listing how to get 'Happiness Chemicals'This is echoed by the Mental Health Foundation that states that “regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems”.

So, through and through, being active has great benefits for our physical and mental health. So is it any wonder then that WHISC has exercise firmly in it’s sights?

Our Lisa is hosting FREE exercise classes every Friday at 10:30am in the beautiful grounds of St.James Gardens at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. If you’ve ever met Lisa, you’ll know she’s a wonderful, bubbly, woman. So these classes promise to be great fun. However, being outdoors, they will be dependent on the weather. So do give WHISC a call on 0151 707 1826 to check that the week’s class is running.

These classes promise to be great communal events. So do come along. Together, we can get through anything!
