Are you like me and dove into a lot of online workshops and/or virtual presentations during the past 15 months to only have the replays sitting in your inbox because you just can't watch another video?
That's me in a nutshell. Shall I say I'm an information junkie? And more specifically a physical activity information junkie!?
I scrolled back in my inbox this week and found my oldest video. It is from November 2020. And it was a big one!
To give you context and the back story, in general, Canada is one of the leading countries in the world for physical activity research and health guidelines. I was in my undergraduate degree in the late 1990s when our professor was part of the steering committee for the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines. He quizzed his exercise physiology students what we thought of how it looked and what it said. These guidelines have since been updated recently into the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines that not only factors in physical activity but sedentary behaviour and sleep.
It's been an ongoing process of doing the research and publicly sharing the evidence of the what, when, where, why and how of physical activity.
Go Canada Go!
Jump back to this week and this video in my inbox and it makes me glow with excitement. What I watched was the launch of the World Health Organization's Every Move Counts Campaign and guidelines on physical activity and sedentary behaviour.
Physical activity has gone global!

What I love about this message and video is that physical activity is for all citizens of the world and it can look and feel different for everyone. It is not a one size fits all behaviour nor does it have to look a certain way to gain benefits.
Kudos to WHO for connecting the dots.
Now for you! What are the unique, interesting and engaging ways you move your body in this world?
Stay well and happy moving,
