In one minute you can learn a new healthy living tip from our Do Live Well Rewind video series brought to you by Active Aging Canada.
This series of 8 videos is based on research evidence about the kinds of activities and activity patterns that contribute to your physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual well-being. Each video will highlight different types of experiences that we hope will prompt you to think about what you do every day, and inspire you to enhance your current routines and activity patterns. Because what you do every day, matters!
Our first video focuses on expressing who you are through the things you do, the roles you have in your life, your hobbies, activities, etc. Expressing yourself is an important aspect of your sense of health and well-being.
Be sure to consult with a physician, physical therapist, or other trained health or exercise professional before doing a new exercise routine, in case you have medical and physical conditions that affect the exercises and how they are applied.
