  1. Join our Can Too Let’s Shine campaign

To counter the effects from Easter eggs, feel the buzz from exercise and pass on some good vibes by sharing your training with the Can Too community. 

Step 1. Join our Can Too Strength & Cardio Virtual Program or

enjoy our gift to you - a free four week exercise program with the Facebook group Can Too Virtual.

Step 2. Please share images or a video of yourself training in a Can Too t-shirt (or at least wearing orange), to show how together, our Can Too community are continuing to keep fit and healthy.  

You can post your images or videos to either:

  • your Can Too Strength and Cardio Virtual Program Facebook group,
  • our Gift to You: Can Too Virtual's Facebook group or
  • you can share to this drobox folder by 20 April.

See some of our team members in action pictured above and our Can Too Strength and Cardio Virtual 10-week Program Coach and Online Presenter, Sally Lynch below.

  1. Go on a virtual Easter egg hunt

Why not team up with friends and family to plan a virtual Easter egg hunt? Have your co-conspirators hide eggs in their own home and get your kids to direct them on a virtual search. Just like a real-life game of Tomb Raider!

  1. Travel the world from your loungeroom

Take yourself or a significant other on a date to any city in the World. Earthcam has live web-cam feeds from around the World. Heading to Paris? Why not cook up some French cuisine and pop on a beret to really set the scene?

  1. Head to the Zoo

Taronga Zoo has launched Taronga TV with live webcams so you can still visit the animals from the comfort of your own living room.

  1. Try mindfulness for the first time

Please see our Volunteers and Leaders Coordinator, Claire Moulsher's video on how to try mindfulness for the first time. 

  1. Enrol in a free online happiness course from Yale

The Science of Well-Being teaches you how to be happier.

  1. Join the house party app

If you can’t go to a party enjoy one at home with the Houseparty app.

Houseparty is the face-to-face social network where you can connect with the people you care about most. The app makes connecting face to face effortless, alerting you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation.

 8. Learn a new recipe from Maggie Beer

Renowned Australian cook and restaurateur Maggie Beer from her home in the Barossa Valley will share videos online to help make cooking simpler – and more exciting – for first-timers. You can follow at home here.  

 9. Use this time to try yoga – get down with Down dog

You can use the Down Dog – yoga app for free until 1 May 2020.

  1. Adopt a gratitude attitude

As Easter is a poignant time to reflect on what we can be grateful for, please see artist, poet, and speaker Cleo Wade’s positive affirmation below on gratitude.

"Gratitude is a celebration we are all invited to," Wade wrote in her book in her book Heart Talk.
