April is such an exciting time of the year for the MOSIC community. It signals the beginning of our Active April campaign, part of a fantastic state government initiative whose aim is to ‘promote healthy and active lifestyles and get Victorians to join in the fun of increased physical activity.’ This year MOSIC is offering a number of FREE events as well as participating as an organisation.
Visit the Premier’s Active April website to find out more or sign up for you or your organisation.
For MOSIC, this means taking health and wellbeing to the next level. This year we will be focusing on three key elements to help deliver the best version of ourselves to the MOSIC community, every single day during April:
- Exercising and moving every day
- Further refining our healthy eating habits
- Developing our mindfulness skill set
We’d love you to join us on this journey during the month of Active April and use this opportunity to take your health to the next level too. No matter what your current level of activity, the state of your diet or mindset, we all have the ability to refine and improve. It’s always exciting to witness what your body can achieve and the positive impact this has on your life and the life of people around you.
Here’s what MOSIC is offering for Active April this year:
