As we continue to adjust to our new normal, the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) wants you to know that there are a host of resources they’ve put together to support students and adults who are blind or visually impaired.
BCABVI thanks American Federation for the Blind for continuing to bring people together with new resources and information concerning the impact of COVID-19 on the blind and visually impaired community. If you would like to visit AFB's website for more information, please click here.
While adjusting to our new normal, sitting in front of a computer screen or binge watching a Netflix show has become more and more common. But did you know exercise helps release endorphins? Endorphins help you feel more relaxed, reduces anxiety, and helps you sleep better. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends only 150 minutes of physical activity a week, which is only 20 minutes a day! You don't even need fancy equipment, water bottles, soup cans, milk jugs or laundry detergent work as weights too.
Our very own personal trainer, Sheryl, is also continuing in-chair exercises from home. Visit our Facebook or Instagram every Tuesday and Thursday for Sheryl's Exercise of the Day! Below is your sneak preview to Tuesday's workout!
