About:

Mind HK decided on the Move It for Mental Health campaign, to encourage better mental and physical health. We hope you, your company, friends, family, your gym, and more, will join us in helping create a healthier 2019 for all.

 

“Exercise More” more tops New Year resolution lists globally, yet we tend to overlook the many mental benefits it brings. While the many physical benefits of exercise are known, this campaign asks you to exercise for both your physical and mental wellbeing and to be aware of the difference it makes. Last year we tracked miles and this year we’re tracking time to encourage you to MOVE IT for mental health by logging all forms of physical activity.  

 

Mental and physical wellbeing are codependent, yet over half of the Hong Kong population does not achieve the recommended level of physical activity. This is a significant problem among youth as well. The World Health Organisation recommends at least one hour of moderate to vigorous exercise per day for young people aged 5 to 17; only 4.7% of Hong Kong’s youth achieves this much physical activity.

Mind HK 誠意邀請您參與我們第一次舉辦的2019 “Move it for Mental Health”。「多做運動,活得健康」是很多人的新年目標,但很多人未必考慮到運動給心理健康帶來的好處。雖然人人都知道運動對身體好,我們希望挑戰您比平常更多的運動,讓你認識到這對於「身」「心」兩者都能帶來好處。去年,我們把您運動的距離記錄下來;而今年我們將會計算您做運動的時間,鼓勵大家以不同形式的運動,達致「身」「心」健康。詳情請瀏覽 www.moveithk.com 以了解更多有關資料,並從 2019年 1月16日 到 2月19日 為 Move it for Mental Health 認捐。

「身」「心」健康互相影響,香港超過一半的人口達不到世界衛生組織建議的運動量。而且,此情況在青年中也是一個嚴重的問題。世界衛生組織建議,5-17歲的青年人至少每天做一個小時輕微到激烈的運動,可是只有4.7%的香港青年人達到此標準。(香港遊樂場協會,2018)
