Lions Gate Virtual Views - December 30, 2020 


Welcome to Lions Gate Virtual Views. We hope that you can escape with us on these weekly virtual journeys!


Please email Melanie with any feedback or suggestions for future program content. Enjoy!

Let’s start the day by getting some exercise to burn some of those Christmas calories. Here’s a seniors’ fitness low-impact cardio workout:












Well done. Get some water and then let’s get some exercise for our neurons (those lovely brain cells). Here are some brain exercises to strengthen your mind. I admit that I haven’t fully looked into the science behind this, but if you want to you can search Yoshiro Tsutsumi and look into it further.













Now that you’ve gotten brain and body moving, let’s start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Do you make resolutions/goals each January? If you don’t, no problem, but if you do, think about your resolutions for 2021.


Here is an interesting video of the history of New Year’s resolutions. On a personal note, my grandmother, who lived to be 101, said that she wouldn’t go to bed at night unless she could articulate one thing new that she had learned that day. I think this is a good life lesson, and maybe this video may have given you something new that you learned today.













Let’s get wide awake with a New Year’s tradition: the polar plunge. This is how we – or some of us, at least - do it in Deep Cove, North Vancouver:













And this is how they do it in Northern Ontario, to raise funds for charity. I think we have it easier in North Vancouver. Have you ever done a polar plunge? Would you?













You may or may not find Mr. Bean funny, but here’s Mr. Bean’s New Year’s Eve Party:

While this is a firework display from around the world to welcome in 2020, I hope that 2021 will allow us to get together (in person) much, much more often. Please stay safe, have a very Happy New Year.













Here is some lovely music that you can play throughout the evening:













I hope that you enjoyed your day and that you enjoy your evening. Please take care of yourself and each other. We wish you all a happy and safe holiday season. Please contact us if there is anything you need over the holiday season.


Please send us your feedback. It will help us build a better program for YOU.

See you next Wednesday, January 2.
