Bundaberg hosts Living Well Health & Wellbeing Expo

The Australian Men’s Shed Association will be hosting the Living Well Health & Wellbeing Expo in Bundaberg

To mark Men’s Health Week, the Australian Men’s Shed Association will be hosting the Living Well Health & Wellbeing Expo in Bundaberg.

In partnership with the Queensland Government, the expo will take place on Friday 18 June and aims to ask the Men’s Shed community the important question of what it takes to keep living well.

There will be over 30 exhibitors in attendance who will put forward suggestions on how to live well, combining the nuts and bolts of some great resources to foster mental wellness.

Australian Mens Shed Association Executive Officer David Helmers said the expo was an important event with research showing everyone can do certain things to improve moods, reduce the risk of depression, strengthen relationships, keep healthy and even add up to seven years to their lives.

And it comes down to living well.

“Traditionally men don’t have a proactive approach to health and wellness,” he said.

“We simply don’t actively do things that are shown to makes us happier and healthier for longer.

“Together with Queensland Government as Mental Wellness Partner, we are proud to be helping more people do little things that lead to a greater sense of personal and community wellbeing.”

Entertainment from the local Caledonian Pipe Band along with beekeeping and cooking demonstrations will feature amongst masterclass woodturning and information sessions from an exercise physiologist and Planet Ark.

The event is free to attend and community members are welcomed, though registrations are encouraged.

Visit the Australian Men’s Shed Association Facebook page or email to register or find out more.

Visitors can enjoy a coffee and BBQ lunch for a gold coin donation and lots of great demonstrations and displays.

Men’s Health week is held from the 14-20 June 2021.
