Open Seminar on Choosing Suitable Sports Activities

Many working people exercise at weekends or leisure time. Some people are likely to take time to prepare for sports competitions such as marathons. However, improper exercise may easily lead to injuries. For instance, sudden, vigorous acts can be harmful for those who lack sufficient training and incompatible body conditions. This is the very opposite of our goals. To better enjoy the fun of exercise, the Occupational Safety and Health Council will hold a seminar on 21 August 2018, at which we will invite Dr. Billy So, Assistant Professor in Physiotherapy, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, to show us how to choose appropriate sports activities for different individuals. “Choose the right activity, don’t drain your vitality.” All are welcomed!

Date: 21 August 2018 (Tuesday)
Time: 6:45 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.
Venue: The Auditorium, Christian Family Service Centre, 3 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong, Kowloon

Workshop on Laughter Yoga for Stress Management

Stress exists in everyday life. It can be a positive driving force to step forward but it could also have a negative impact on the physical and psychological wellbeing if people have been working under substantial level of stress continuously.
Laughter Yoga is a simple and profound aerobic exercise. This exercise not only makes the body release more stress relieving endorphins but also promotes abdominal breathing through laughters and improves the blood oxygen level. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that people can achieve a complete wellbeing workout and hence work more efficiently. Besides, the exercises of Laughter Yoga help to relieve the stress induced musculoskeletal discomforts and reduce chance of injury at work.

Venue: OSHC OSH Academy
