Stay Active, Stay Connected

Contact(s)

A provincewide Shutdown and Stay-at-Home Order are now in place. Learn about the provincial public health measures and restrictions.

 

The Health Unit recognizes the importance of staying connected with family and friends, whether it is by doing activities with members of your household, or by connecting virtually with others not living at home with you. Here are some recommended activities for all ages that have beneficial effects on physical and mental health: 

Activities to Get you Moving:  

  • Explore a new nature trail (look for signs of the changing seasons, spot wildlife, take pictures)   
  • Create an indoor or outdoor obstacle course or scavenger hunt  
  • Go for a walk, run, bike ride or rollerblade  
  • Do an at-home family workout (e.g., follow an online video, have a family dance party or create your own workout)  
  • Start a gardening project – consider patio planter gardens if you have limited space

Activities to Help you Stay Connected with People Outside of your Household:  

  • Make a recipe together with someone on video chat  
  • Virtual walk and talk  
  • Play a game together online  
  • Start a virtual club (e.g., book, article, podcast or documentary club)  
  • Learn something new together (e.g., hobbies, DIY projects, crafts, virtual tours)
