Do you have any words of encouragement for families trying to stay physically active while practicing physical distancing?
“Social distancing is hard but so very important! Find something you enjoy doing. When we aren’t able to go outside we’ve been planning and planting seeds to start our garden for the year. Going outside, even for a walk, is not only physically healthy, but is also mentally and emotionally refreshing as well.”
When this is all over why do you think a family should join an Active SWV free program?
“We joined a walking club in Oak Hill a few years back and it was great. You meet so many good people, and it is easier to motivate yourself to do things if you know others you like will be there. Josh tore up his knee and he used to run all the time. He can’t run anymore, but he can bike. We got each other bikes for Christmas so he wants to start a bike group through Active SWV here in Oak Hill once this is over. We encourage everyone to get out and participate in Active SWV’s programs. Active SWV has something for everybody, and everybody has something that they can do to be active.”
