Sports and Physical Health Awareness Month


The phrase ‘you need to exercise’ has become a cliché in our modern world, especially because we are so consumed with the latest trends and it has become difficult to put exercise in our schedules.

No matter how busy you are, it is important to realize that you need to be alive in order to carry out all your tasks and exercise will help you get the energy you need to do your work. It is for this very reason that Selibeng is pleased to announce to the public that July is SPORTS AND PHYSICAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH. Before you start to worry, relax we are going to help you get through it!

For the rest of July, Selibeng will shine the light on the many Basotho Athletes who have dedicated their lives to sports and physical wellness by choosing sports as their career. It is high time that these talented athletes be celebrated for raising the flag of Lesotho high in different countries and we will tell their stories to inspire you!

Throughout the month of July, you can look forward to reading inspiring stories of the sports legends in our beautiful mountain kingdom.

In order to promote physical health, it is important to exercise and we understand that you might be a beginner. It is easier to get something done if you tell yourself that it will just take a little bit of effort and time.

This is why, in addition to shining the light on Basotho athletes, we will be carrying out a 15 MINUTE EXERCISE CHALLENGE. All we ask is that you get up and set your timer to fifteen minutes do easy exercises!

Lastly, you can also look forward to education about physical health and how exercise and eating healthy can help you live longer. Buckle up; we have a great month planned out for you!
