Physical Health and Wellbeing
Many of us are worrying about the current situation around coronavirus and how it might affect our everyday lives. With the world changing around us, it is ever more important to maintain a healthy body and mind and DMU wants to support all its staff in being able to do that. As your employer, we are also extremely committed to our responsibility to ensure you have a healthy and safe environment to work in, be that in the office or, as now, at home.
This page will signpost you to information and resources to support a very important aspect of our new everyday lives:
Keeping fit, active and healthy during coronavirus
Before undertaking any exercise at home please ensure you are aware of your surroundings and have enough room to safely take part in any of the activities and exercises demonstrated. Only work out to your own ability.
DMU remain as committed as ever to ensuring that all staff are supported in keeping active. DMUsport and DMU Leisure Centre have created some great exercise videos for you to follow along with at home or in the garden.
As well as the exercise videos above, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Leisure Centre is live streaming exercise classes.
