Building a better, healthier world
With so many people suddenly confined to their homes, there’s never been a better time to learn easy skills and build habits to balance stress, keep moving, stay calm, get to sleep, and manage negative emotions. These are practices you’ll want to hold on to and develop in the long-term, whatever your circumstances.
Social isolation and stress were not invented with this virus. For the HealthFlix team, the big question is: “Can we take this crisis – this pause in our lives – and use it to get inspired, to learn new skills and better understand the science that will help support ourselves, our families and our communities in the future?”
