Workshops For Stakeholders

Encouraging mothers and their families to be more physically active –
Workshop for Stakeholders

As part of its funding received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, CAAWS will be hosting 10 workshops across Ontario over the next three months (April – June 2012) for community leaders and stakeholders who are interested in developing initiatives, policies and strategies that will engage as many mothers and their families as possible in physical activity and sport.

The purpose of this free 3 hour workshop is to share physical activity and sport challenges and opportunities specific to mothers and their families with community stakeholders and key decision-makers, providing ideas and tools to help them support more mothers to be active themselves and with their families. The workshop also provides an opportunity for participants to network and discuss collaboration and local action to make a difference in the lives of mothers and families in their community.

Between diaper changes, feedings, and everyday chores I can't imagine where to find time for me.
Solution

Let your baby take one nap a day in the stroller and use this time to go for a walk - physical activity is great "me" time for the body and the mind. If your child is a little older look for a swimming or yoga class that you can enjoy together.
