WATCH| Keep active while in isolation with Longford Sports partnership

To help combat the boredom associated with the self-isolation currently inflicted on the people of Ireland, Longford sports partnership have kick-started an initiative to help keep people active. 

To keep people up and on their feet, Longford sports partnership will share a video of various physical activities/challenges on their social media channels at 11am daily . Each activity challenge can be done by viewers at home.

Sarah Mulligan Longford Sports partnership explained: "As you may be aware, Longford Sports Partnership have postponed our programmes and events, as the country continues to adhere to the social distancing guidelines and government advice to flatten the curve. However, it is important to remember that it is still possible to be active.

"Physical activity is not only good for your physical health but also your mental health. Over the coming days and weeks we will be sharing ways and ideas to maintain physical activity in these challenging times.

"We are aiming to do this everyday at 11am, but you can do the activities throughout the day whenever suits. Activities will vary each day but there will be something for everyone so please like or follow us to receive updates on Facebook: longfordsportspartnership and/or Instagram :@longfordsportspartnership."
