Walking is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health. Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. It is in that light the Mental Health Coalition-SL on its 10th Anniversary celebration and awareness raising drive in response to the rise in Mental Health related cases influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic, drug abuse and other environmental stressors; organized a sponsored walk with the theme “Care for the Mind Amidst Crisis Situations” The MH Coalition affirms the view that a good walk can do wonders for one’s mental well-being; this includes improving self perception and self esteem, reducing the risk of being depressed and helping those who are depressed stay active through a Detailed Self Care Plan; with exercise as one of the key components.
