As health officials continue to urge people to wear masks in public, a dentist in Canada has shared a genius hack for making face masks fit better.

To make the mask fit more snugly, Cui folds the mask in half length-ways, ties a knot with the earloops on each side close to the mask, opens the mask, and tucks in the openings on the sides underneath the earloops.

“In absence of N95s, this might be a good alternative,” Cui said. 

On TikTok, videos of celebrities, athletes and influencers encouraging

The secret to getting fit for free is to use every opportunity to be active.

Walk everywhere

Walking is one of the easiest ways to get more activity into your day, lose weight and become healthier. Research shows people who fit moderate activity, such as walking, into their daily life burn more energy than those who make weekly visits to the gym.

Try to fit walking into your routine by not using the car for short journeys, walking all or part of your journey to work, getting off the bus or train one stop early, and planning longer walks at the weekends.
