Health & Wellbeing

Keeping yourself healthy over the holidays

Keeping well and being healthy reflects in our physical health and our mental health.

We can all help ourselves to stay physically and mentally well by eating healthy food, exercising regularly, sleeping well, socialising with family and friends and talking with people we trust.

Difficult situations can lead to stress. Everyone can experience anxiety and stress – children and young people, adults including parents and teachers. Feeling stressed is an everyday part of life; talking about the things that cause stress can really help.
