Discuss Together - The Other Pandemic


The World Health Organization published a report making the following points:

  1. Noncommunicable diseases now make up 7 of the world’s top 10 causes of death.

  2. Heart disease now represents 16% of total deaths from all causes.

  3. Deaths from diabetes increased by 70% globally between 2000 and 2019, with an 80% rise in deaths among males.

In this Discuss Together session, I was joined by Rajinder, Bindi, Arim and Davina. We talked about:

  1. The report,

  2. What we can do differently.

Each participant shared their views on what we can all do, including all exercise regularly such as with the Pungra Exercise Together sessions.

I was pleased to hear that each person regularly gets into a conversation with family and friends to encourage them to join Pungra Exercise Together, listen to our stories and reactions, which mostly show that we feel it’s challenging to encourage people to exercise.

We will persevere, however, no matter what in being Activity Activists. We are, the Pungra Movement.
