About

Mind HK decided on the Move It for Mental Health campaign, to encourage better mental and physical health. We hope you, your school or company, friends, family, your gym, and more, will join us in helping create a healthier 2020 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 and working out for 30 minutes per day every day in the month of February 2020.  

 

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 (Hong Kong Playground, 2018).

Mind HK 透過舉辦為精神健康 Move it 計劃,以促進更良好的「身」「心」健康。我們誠意邀請您、您的學校或公司、朋友、家人、您的健身室等,一起加入挑戰,建立更健康的2020年。

「多做運動,活得健康」是很多人的新年目標,但我們很容易忽視運動為我們的精神健康帶來的益處。雖然人人都知道運動對身體好,我們希望挑戰您為「身」「心」運動,讓您感受它對於「身」「心」健康帶來的好處。去年我們紀錄您的運動距離,今年我們將會記錄您的運動時間,鼓勵大家透過記錄所有形式的運動,在2020年2月每日運動30分鐘,為精神健康 MOVE IT

「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)。
