#take10 campaign

In June 2018 the School Games launched its #take10 social media campaign to encourage young people to take a short 10 minute break from the pressures of work and revision for the good of their physical and mental health.

If you would like to get involved simply pick one of the exercise examples below - or create your own - and let us know about it through social media using #take10. 

Stress Busting: Mindfulness and beginners’ yoga

  • Sun Salutations
  • Warrior Sequence
  • Yoga at your desk

Productivity: Quick HIIT exercise to get their blood pumping when they’ve hit a wall with their work

  • Mountain Climber Variations
  • Various hit movements with no equipment needed
  • Single Arm Burpees

Focus: Strength based exercises to help focus their minds before starting revision 

  • Incline / Decline Press Ups
  • Step ups in time to music 
  • Parkour for beginners

Study Buddy: Partner exercises they can do with a friend

For any young people who get involved during the course of our initial campaign, which will run throughout the month of June 2018, there is the opportunity to win some great giveaways from the School Games team.
