Video Filming Tips for Social Media

Ready to share with the world that you’re moving for mentoring? Here’s some video tips to help you do that.

For most Social Media – Videos should be filmed LANDSCAPE: sideways/horizontal (not vertical) on your smart phone. Make sure the quality is clear with no background noise.

The exception is Instagram Stories, which should be filmed VERTICAL: the way you normally hold your phone.

Publish your video on your social channels and tag #400YAYChallenge to be featured on ours, and you can also email it to us directly at moveathon@yay.org

Tip:  if you post on Facebook publish as “public” so we can share it too!

No More Excuses, Start Moving for Mentoring

What is your favourite excuse to not exercise?

Do you find yourself saying you don’t have the time, you’re too tired or not motivated enough? Do you feel that there is not enough room for physical activity in your life? Here are solutions to all the good excuses for sitting on the couch!

I’m running out of time.

Active people are not necessarily those who have the most free time. It is above all a question of priorities and interests. Being active is even part of the way to give ourselves energy to more effectively accomplish all of our other activities. During busier times, allow yourself to do a little less or split your time into a few blocks. Example, 1 hour into two blocks of 30 minutes.

It does not interest me.

Perhaps you think you have to suffer for it to be worth it. Think again! All activities are good for health. Perhaps you are already doing more than you think.
