(May 2020 - August 2020)
The Recreation Program aims to promote, prevent, build resilience and educate on health and wellness. As wellness refers to the active pursuit of healthy living, recreational activities are practical ways to involve the four interrelated dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, social and emotional wellness. Focusing on 7 recreational activities: physical activity, mental exercises, lifelong learning, home cooking, creative therapy, music and gardening; the benefits of each recreational activity will be discussed in regard to the four wellnesses.
The Recreation Program Booklet is both an educational and interactive booklet on recreational activities. Each recreational activity has a short descriptor of its benefits, examples of what the activity may include, and some activities can be done directly in the booklet. Various recreational activities include physical activities, mental puzzles and games, and creative therapy to engage and be involved in physical, intellectual, emotional and social wellness.
