July: Exercise, Nutrition and SleepPosted: 1 Jul 2022
This July, our monthly theme is shifting to the trio of exercise, nutrition and sleep.
We know that these three things, when kept in check, can give us a boost in our mental wellbeing. But how can we use games as a vehicle to learn healthier habits?
This month, we’re going to be exploring the concepts of how games can promote healthy living, both physically and mentally. Through game highlights, podcast discussions, articles, resources, analogies and more, we’re going to work through it together.
And we’ve got a hell of a schedule waiting for you! Take a look.
Here are just some of the things you’ll be seeing from us this month:
