With the COVID-19 pandemic and shift to Work From Home (WFH) arrangements, there has been a surge of interest in ergonomic workstation setups. This is all for good reason! As we will hear from Mr Patrick Ker, senior occupational therapist & director of the Postgraduate Allied Health Institute at SGH, maintaining good posture is an integral aspect to our health. Tune in to this episode to find out how you can work towards better posture.
Is it enough to just exercise for an hour a day, even if we spend all other hours of the day sitting? (Hint: Not really...) In this episode, we are joined by Dr Andre Mathias Müller, a sports scientist and lecturer at the NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. We will take a closer look at sedentary behaviours, when they can become a problem and how we can go about tackling them.
What exactly is a vice? Is it just what we typically think of, like smoking and drinking? Join us for a chat with Ysanne, a designer and integrative nutrition health coach, as we unpack what vices might look like in our lives, and how we can manage them mindfully and intentionally.
What makes the school-to-work transition daunting? For some, it is the job-hunting aspect, and for others, it is getting settled into their first job. In the opening episode of our Adulting series, listen to Nina and Maline chat with us about some challenges they faced during this process, and what they have learnt along the way.
What does being 'healthy' really mean? Are social perceptions of a healthy body unrealistic? In our final episode of the Finding Balance series, we invite Prof Michael Chia, an expert on pediatric exercise and physical activity to share what a healthy person is really like. Join us as we discuss the different motivations and pressures to getting healthy and when staying healthy becomes excessive!
Everyone knows the importance of sleep, so why do we sacrifice it for something else? Today, we are joined by Professor Michael Chee, an expert on sleep deprivation on cognitive performance. We discuss the culture of hyper-productivity in Singapore and the differences between quality and duration of sleep. To end off, we explore tips for falling asleep easier and adjusting sleep patterns for all night owls out there (ourselves included)!
We've all experienced that feeling when we see our friends having fun while we're not there. On our first episode of Finding Balance, we explore that fear of missing out (FOMO) culture in Singapore and how social media shapes how we experience it. Joining us is Joanne, a friend and psychology student who'll be sharing her own experiences with FOMO. Together, we discuss different ways of dealing with FOMO or comparing with others, whether by our parents or ourselves.
It's time to introduce HTHT, our podcast about health made especially for youth! In our first series, we explore finding balance in health. We'll be zooming in on a few key aspects in our life; FOMO, Sleep and A Healthy Body. With the help of experts and friends, we’ll be having conversations from the heart about our experiences and how we can find balance in our lives.
Coming soon this April!
