Mr. Lewis then started the session focusing on the topic ‘Keeping Active in the Home’ during the lockdown. He said that being sedentary is bad for our physical and mental health, so staying active during this difficult time is important. Being active helps lower stress hormones. He had shared a presentation which includes the videos of variety of exercises which students will get the following benefits by doing at home:
Higher energy levels
Lower stress levels and blood pressure
Helps to resist infections
Increase muscle strength
Reduce anxiety and depression
He further added, maintaining a degree of fitness during lockdown has been shown to enhance the efficiency of the neural pathways responsible for cognitive control, memory and attention.
Mr. Lewis had shared his knowledge and expertise to turn the whole session into erudite discussion pertaining to the requirements of the student’s health benefit. There was also a question-answer round where students did put forth their queries and got them answered from the panel.
It was indeed a very well-organized session which was truly very enlightening and enriching from all ends. The session would surely help the students in adopting a very balanced lifestyle during this pandemic situation.
