There truly is something about the change of season that makes life in winter just that little bit more difficult. The shorter days, loss of sunlight, colder temperatures, wetter weather – and now the increasing restrictions – all make it hard to stay healthy, eat well and keep fit and flexible.
A January 2021 survey shows, in fact, that 71% of employers now identify worker well-being as the greatest challenge posed by the remote working environment that has exploded in the wake of Covid-19.
To address these issues, and help overcome them, Pegasus Consulting has put together a panel of expert lecturers, physiotherapists, psychologists and teachers offering key presentations on how to stay energised, nourished, fit and happy all winter long, including…

• Identifying stress
• Dealing with covid-related anxiety and isolation
• Relaxation techniques
• Working From Home issues

The exercises, ideal for people of any age or fitness, can be done at any time with little or no equipment, and no need to change into gym gear. All you need is a mat, some space, and 30 minutes.
