The Behavioural Medicine Lab at the University of Victoria is looking for participants that have either recently retired (within 6 months) or had their last child leave home (within 6 months) and who would like to become more active. If this sounds like you and you are currently engaging in less than 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week, please email us at email@example.com to find more! By participating, you will take part in a 10-week digital health program that will encourage you to be more active, help you set goals, and teach you about the many benefits of living an active life. We are still recruiting despite COVID, as all communication is done through email/phone and the digital health program is online!
All participants must have retired or had their last child leave home within the last 6 months and currently be engaging in less than 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week. If you're not sure if you qualify, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help determine your eligibility.
The evidence is clear that participating in regular physical activity has many benefits, including improving both physical and mental health. This is especially important for individuals going through a significant life change, such as retiring or becoming an empty nester. By participating in our study, you will be challenged to develop new habits for being physically active so that you can live a healthy life.
