South West residents can learn to nourish their bodies at home with new online health workshops.

South West Women’s Health and Information Centre is hosting free virtual workshops throughout the month focusing on the four pillars of health — activity, diet and hydration, relaxation and routine, and sleep.

Centre nurse and health education and wellbeing coach Anne MacKay said it was important to keep people connected during these times.

Nourish is a four-week workshop covering four pillars of health, which I thought would be really pivotal to cover at the moment to keep people as well as they can be.

“Also to provide some information and positivity, not just focusing on COVID-19 but how to stay well coming into winter.”

Ms MacKay said the pillars of health were important to keep on track of.

“Week one is about staying active and the importance of movement and things we can do at home, week two covers diet and hydration, week three is learning the tools of having a routine and relaxation and week four is all about sleep and how important it is for our mind, body and soul.

“It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this virtually but if it works well we can run it again.”

The first session will run on May 13 and explore activities that promote wellbeing.
