Life in isolation has taken us out of our usual day to day routines and set us with the challenge of setting new ones, especially around the duties of homeschooling, keeping kids entertained and running a household.

Now, more than ever, during these days of COVID-19, we see the importance of being healthy and having a strong immune system.

What better way to keep the kids engaged, entertained and to build our immune system than exercise!

So, how does exercise help?

For one, physical activity helps to flush bacteria out of the lungs, decreasing your chances of getting a cold, flu or other illness.

For these reasons and many more we need to ensure we are including exercise in our new daily routines and to discuss this today we are joined by our special guest, Jane Kilkenny.
