  • Maintain bone health and,
  • Maintain mental health and feel better

Minds in motionMinds in Motion offers a home component to help all participants meet the 2 ½ hours (that’s 21 minutes a day!) of activity stated in the guidelines.

Also, because Minds in Motion is being offered in community recreation centres, older adult centres or similar community-based multi-service organizations, participants will be introduced to additional recreational opportunities which could also help them meet the recommended 2 ½ hours.
