Mental Wellbeing at home
With everyone spending a lot more time at home, there has never been a better time for prioritising your wellbeing. There are three key areas here: being active, being mentally present and being creative. Try to do something for each of these key areas every day, and let us know how you are getting on. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the results of any physical challenges you have undertaken, any feedback from the mental activities and, especially, anything creative that you have produced during this time. We would love to hear from you!
