I get it.  Some days are harder than others when trying to stick to your fitness routine.

Alot of the team at The Next Rush feel the same, but as long as you’re still moving, one way to keep motivated without letting your fitness goals suffer is to do volunteer work where you maintain some sort of physical activity.

From Brisbane festivals, Sydney Comedy Festivals, sausage sizzles, charity runs, drop in centre social activities, that’s where you’ll find alot of the team doing in their free time among other things.  You get to chat to people, you’re in the thick of the action and your’e having fun.  Ocassionally you do need that jumpstart to get back into your routine.

We also thought it would be a great opportunity to look back on last year’s Paniyiri Greek Festival which celebrates 44 years this year and will be themed around a tribute to the 2020 Olympics which began in ancient Olympia!

The Olympic Flame relay begins in Greece with the Flame Lighting Ceremony at the Temple of Hera in Olympia on March 12 before being handed over to this years’ host city on March 19 in a ceremony in Athens. Don’t miss the stirring homage to the Olympics at Paniyiri Greek Festival.

Volunteer work is also a great way to stay connected to the community while having a good time and depending on the event or cause you choose can help create a little joy in someone else’s lives.  And all it will cost you is your time.

The Paniyiri Greek Festival is held in May each year in Musgrave Park, Brisbane, Australia. The festival was started in 1976, and is the longest running cultural festival in Queensland, and the longest running Greek festival in Australia. It was initiated by Father Gregory Sakellariou, with the aim of bringing the Greek community together and sharing their culture with the people of Brisbane. The festival is famous for its food, music and Hellenic dancing. Crowds of up to 60,000 people flock to the two-day festivities, and over a thousand volunteers help in the running of Queensland’s largest festival. The Australian Festival of Chamber Music is a friendly, unique and internationally acclaimed event presenting a 10 day program of over 30 concerts and special events. Experience the world’s finest chamber musicians performing in various combinations exclusively in the tropical winter warmth of Townsville, North Queensland. #panyirifestival #greekfestival #brisbane #whatsonbrisbane #brisbaneevents #visitbrisbane #qldtourism #toowoomba #acfm #classicalmusicians #orchestra #musiciansunite #symphonyorchestra #music #brisbanemusicscene #musicfestival #greekculture #greekaustralian #sunshinecoast #goldcoast #queensland Video Credits: Taty Sodre, Melvin Davis, Ashton Glese, Cypriot Youth Brisbane Dance Group, Kevin Rudd, The V-Expats Journal, My Competitive Eating, Set Time 2588 Music Credit: San Ta Matia Sou – Nikiforos Δημήτρης Καραδήμος – Έχω Πρόβλημα I Dimitris Karadimos – Exo Provlima
