How to live longer; and enjoy what’s left

Exercise Helps Improve Your Mind as Well!

No matter how young, or old you believe you are, your body and mind have a remarkable ability to regenerate and repair itself.

This is why we have Yoga and Tai Chi sessions as well as our onsite Mini Gym at Vee’s Place. We understand how powerful exercise can be.

One of the drawbacks of being human is we are like computers. We constantly run algorithm routines over and over again in the form of beliefs and thought patterns.

These patterns can turn into stress, anxiety and depressions. Loneliness and unhappiness can be reversed by changing these negative thought patterns by taking up exercise and new interests.

Why We Provide Exercise Activities and Facilities At Vee’s Place

“Lead researcher Dr Samuel Harvey, from the Institute of Psychiatry, said: “Our study shows that people who engage in regular leisure-time activity of any intensity are less likely to have symptoms of depression.”

“We also found that the context in which activity takes place is vital and that the social benefits associated with exercise, like increased numbers of friends and social support, are more important in understanding how exercise may be linked to improved mental health than any biological markers of fitness.”

A Big Thank You To Our Partners

Donors: If your organisation is not shown here, please accept my sincere apologies if your logo has is missing. This website was created on the 22nd May 2017 and we have a new volunteer, Leslie Fletcher who is a skilled web developer and experienced online marketer. Unfortunately, he is working with old and incomplete files due to the change in personnel.

We urgently need your Graphic File and the URL where you would like the logo should link back to to bring our website up to date. As a thank you for your support, (and as we now have an expert volunteering for us), we would like to repay your generosity in a small way by publishing article features of how your donations has helped Vee’s Place. Eventually these articles will be high traffic and a valuable marketing asset once this website matures.

If you have any promotional material, (including video and PDF files), representing your organisation, please send them to my web developer by email, directly to; leslie@lesliejfletcher.com. If these files exceed the data size limit many email servers impose on us, email Leslie and he will provide you with a securely encrypted Dropbox link where you can send us your files of choice.

If you refer you can also contact me using the contact page on the website.

Thank you for your understanding and past generosity towards Vee’s Place, Prescot and Merseyside’s Community Resource Center – Verity Rhodes, Founder and Centre Manager
