Keep Pushing!

Keep Pushing!

We are two months into this Pandemic. Many of us have been practicing isolation behaviours and have had our “normal” schedules disrupted. As we get into the summer months and the weather begins to get nicer it is important to remember to keep yourself safe and healthy. While you must still follow the guidelines laid out by the province it is important to find ways to keep physically and mentally healthy. Follow the links below for some inspiration on how to stay active while at home.
