Health & Wellness
 

November 27, 2020

 

We’re nearing the end of our mental-health focus in this month’s newsletter, with strategies to help see you through the coming pandemic winter. Last week we talked about mental health and exercise, with tips on getting outside in the cold weather to stay active and fit.

This week we’re turning to our social circles to support our mental health, with ways to spend time with others online or outdoors. With the holidays approaching and lockdowns in place in several provinces, we have ideas for safely celebrating with loved ones or alone. And to follow up on last week’s theme, we look at the mental health and social benefits of running.

We’re also highlighting other mental-health resources in each newsletter. This week we look at what insight we can glean from sports science about endurance during the pandemic, and offer advice for those living with roommates.

To recap for this week: Stay connected with others.

Coming up next week: How to rest and recharge (away from your phone).

E-mail to let us know how it goes or if you have any tips to share, follow us on Twitter @Globe_Health, and if this newsletter was forwarded to you and you'd like to subscribe, please visit our newsletter signup page. Lori Fazari
