Studies showed that the number of Singaporeans doing exercises at least once a week has increased gradually over the last decade. More people are engaged in sports such as walking, jogging, running, swimming, badminton and dance sports. According to the World Health Organisation, the benefits from regular exercise include having a lower risk of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes and colon cancer.

It is easy to start an exercise programme but the trick is to find one interesting physical activity that will you give the constant results and will be easy to stick to in the long run, not allowing the excuse of lacking of time commitment deter from keeping fit.

You can use this as a motivation to volunteer your time as you keep fit in a long run by joining as a running buddy to the special needs members so that they can run.

Every new year is a new opportunity to learn something new. You may consider learning a new language. Learning a new language not only help you to improve on your communication skill, it also will look great on your resume and open up new doors for yourself. Other than learning a new language, why not pick up useful skills or fun hobbies? It is better to use your free time in a constructive manner, learning new skills while having fun at the same time. Instead of learning typical communication skills or sports, find out how to learn social entrepreneurial skill. If you are from the campus’ co-operatives or coop club, you will have the opportunity to be involved in such meaningful programme.

3. Travel around the world

Study showed that Singaporeans are travelling notably more than their global counterparts. The youths cited the key factor to travel is to reward themselves for either their hard work in career or graduation. While majority quoted leisure as their main purpose for travelling, hence family bonding is the top motivator for Singaporean to travel. Therefore, why not spend more time with the people that matter, who we care deeply and care for us deeply by travelling together? If you are afraid that the hectic schedule organised by tour agency will deter from bringing your grandparents from travelling together, Silver Horizon is here to the rescue with their dedicated well-paced itineraries, comfortable stays with the focus on the travel needs and interest of senior citizens to ensure that the senior citizen will travel with ease and their comfort level.
