Lock­down ac­tiv­i­ties

Walking New Zealand - - Lockdown Activities -

With ev­ery­one stay­ing in their bub­ble dur­ing the lock­down, our lo­cal streets have more people walk­ing and cy­cling for phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and get­ting to the lo­cal su­per­mar­ket. Com­mu­ni­ties across the coun­try have found cre­ative ways to en­cour­age more lo­cal phys­i­cal ex­er­cise. The place­ment of teddy bears, and later Easter egg pic­tures, in win­dows as a form of phys­i­cally dis­tant scavenger hunt have been fun for big and lit­tle kids alike. Many have used chalk on the ground to draw pic­tures, write words of en­cour­age­ment or de­velop ob­sta­cle cour­ses for lo­cal res­i­dents. If you’ve do­ing any­thing ac­tive in your neigh­bour­hood to en­cour­age ex­er­cise, like walk­ing etc, us­ing our cur­rently quiet streets, please share your story with us. Just email walk­ingnz@xtra.co.nz with a story from say 100 words with one im­age and if pub­lished you could win a free six month sub­scrip­tion or ex­ten­sion to Walk­ing New Zealand mag­a­zine. In­clude your name and postal ad­dress. Here are what some read­ers have been do­ing dur­ing the lock­down.
