At the beginning of the year the Irish Heart Foundation began an initiative about how people can keep active in the workplace, regardless of what type of work you do. We here in Suaimhneas got on board and encouraged our members and staff to get active. We went to the gym, walking every morning, swimming, and did activities here in the clubhouse such as using the stairs instead of the lift and chair aerobics. As a result of our hard work we won a gold award. Dominic who is staff and myself went to collect the award in the Gibson Hotel. This was a lovely event. The CEO of the Heart Foundation presented the awards.
Here in Suaimhneas we hope to keep this activity programme going as physical exercise is a great way to keep your mind healthy.
