The target number of push-ups varies from day to day to reflect a different mental health statistic and to encourage conversations around mental health. (Read below for further details on mental health statistics)
Please offer your support in any of the following ways:
1. Ask a participant about the mental health statistic on any given day, to foster conversation around this important topic.
2. Engage in conversation with family, friends and colleagues to raise awareness of mental health.
3. Make a donation via the link below: https://www.thepushupchallenge.com.au/fundraisers/thelivingedgefitforlife
All donations go directly to Lifeline, who aim to ensure that critical support services are accessible to anyone who needs them – anytime, anywhere.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) constitution asserts: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
The interconnectedness of mental, physical, and social health is fundamental to our overall wellbeing and quality of life. The three aspects are intricately linked and it will come as no surprise to those training with The Living Edge that your bootcamp workouts pay dividends not only in the physical, but in the mental and social spheres as well.
Physical health refers to the capacity of our body to perform optimally. Regular exercise, adequate sleep and healthy nutrition play a vital role in supporting good physical health. When we prioritize our physical health, it not only enhances our energy levels and reduces the risk of chronic diseases but also has a positive impact on our mental and social wellbeing. Exercise, for instance, releases endorphins that boost mood and reduce anxiety, while a healthy body image can improve self-esteem and confidence.
Social health pertains to our relationships, social interactions, and sense of belonging. Humans are social beings, and our connections with others are crucial for our emotional and psychological wellbeing. Strong social support networks provide comfort, encouragement, and a sense of community, which can alleviate stress and foster resilience.
Mental health refers to our emotional, psychological, and cognitive wellbeing. It encompasses our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and influences how we handle stress, relate to others, and make decisions. Mental health plays a crucial role in our physical and social wellbeing, as it affects our ability to engage in healthy habits, maintain relationships, and cope with life’s challenges.
How The Living Edge promotes holistic wellbeing:
Congratulations to all members of The Living Edge community for the role you are playing in fostering positive, holistic health outcomes not only for yourselves, but also for others.
COMMUNICATION via What’s App Community Group
A LIVING EDGE COMMUNITY GROUP has been set up on What’s App, which will allow you to receive important updates/program changes and event news from your coaches. This group will be used for one-way communication only so you won’t be bombarded with notifications. Anyone not yet a member of The Living Edge Comunity Group is encouraged to join HERE
The OBC staying connected group will continue to be used for two-way banter between groups members and for the sharing of photos, etc after sessions. If you are interested in joining the two-way chat, in addition to the community group, please click here.
UPDATE YOUR EXERCISE QUESTIONNAIRE DETAILS
In order for us to ensure we can cater for individual need and modify exercises according to any medical concerns or issues, it is important that your pre-exercise questionnaire remains updated at all times. Please get into the habit of checking this each month when you enrol, as well as anytime there is a change in your health status.
Please also check that emergency contact details remain up-to-date.
