A PROGRAMME geared towards boosting the wellbeing of locals has been launched by the University of Warwick’s Sports and Wellness Hub.

The ‘Mind, Body and Goal’ checklist has been launched by the University in the hope of rewarding locals for prioritising their mental and physical health throughout the winter months.

Participants are provided with a list of achievable daily goals – which may range from completing ten squats, to drinking at least six glasses of water a day – with the reward of a free day pass to access the Hub’s facilities for those who complete all activities.

The checklist can be found at the following link: warwick.ac.uk/services/sport/join/feelgood

In addition, two free virtual yoga classes will be hosted by Hub instructors, streaming live on the ‘Warwick Sport’ Facebook page on the last week of October.

Director of Sport and Active Communities at the Hub, Lisa Dodd-Mayne, says that the decision to set up the programme was essential heading into the final part of the year.

“This has been a challenging six months, and as the clocks are set to go back and the nights draw in, this time of year especially can be difficult from a mental health perspective,” she said.

“We can all practice self-care at home and invest in ourselves. It all starts with a small step in the right direction, whether that be stretching for five minutes longer in the morning or simply taking a moment to breathe properly.

“Here at the Sports and Wellness Hub, we’d like to encourage those who have set some time aside to look after themselves this month to keep this momentum going and to claim a free day pass, on us.

“Everything has to start somewhere, why not start here? We’re looking forward to welcoming people of all age and abilities to our world-class facilities and give them the opportunity to try something different this October.”
