On Tuesday, July 7, BioCheck founder Patrick van Luijk was present online during the first webinar of Gezond010, the cluster of the Municipality of Rotterdam that brings together initiatives that contribute to a healthier city.
The webinar discussed the impact of the coronavirus on the Gezond010 partners and their activities. Separate sessions were also scheduled during the webinar, so that partners could network with each other. Before the networking sessions started, Patrick gave the participants an energizer: a short series of physical exercises that help relax tight or stiff muscles.
The energizer was specially tailored by Patrick to the participants who work from home: you can get tension complaints in your neck and shoulders if you sit in the wrong sitting position for a long time. Patrick therefore demonstrated a number of exercises in which you firmly tense the muscles in the upper body and then relax them again. Finally, Patrick demonstrated a soothing breathing exercise.
Sometimes we are so busy working and being ‘productive’ that we forget to relax. And relaxation is essential for your body to recover, so that you can perform well day in, day out! That is why these energizer exercises are so important: they help remove tension in your muscles and the breathing exercises help clear your head and body.
As a Gezond010 ambassador, Patrick van Luijk regularly gives energizers. His mission as ambassador of Gezond010 is to make people aware of a healthy lifestyle, with room for physical recovery – because a healthier Rotterdam starts with healthier people!
