The Social Media Week 2019 holds this year from February 4th to 8th, and as usual have gathered together activities that are not only enlightening but also profitable.
Part of these years session, and the ones we are particularly happy about are the health and wellness sessions. We curated some of the health and wellness sessions at this year’s Social Media Week that you should attend.
Demystifying Yoga in Nigeria:
Yoga is an ancient health practice with roots in Indian & Egyptian culture dating as far back as 3000 BCE but became a widespread trend in the Western world in the late ’80s.
Since then, many styles of this physical practice have evolved making it more mainstream and accessible to the global community.
Studies show that a low-impact exercise such as yoga is more effective in the maintenance of one’s mental health and prevents relapses in people managing depression and stress.
Let’s talk about it and not carry last with this tried and tested wellness practice.
This session is aimed at showing how yoga can support and anchor your existing spiritual and fitness practices.

Minimalism: Creating A Happy, Healthy Workstation
When you spend hours at your desk every day, even the smallest features of your workstation can greatly affect your productivity (and even your health).
Your workstation shouldn’t wear you down, but that’s what uncomfortable chairs, messy desks, and poor lighting do even though you might not notice these things day after day.
With a few adjustments, however, you can improve your working environment and keep your scattered desk from getting you down! Learn how to tidy and declutter your workstation with a minimalist mindset.
