Throughout the day we have shared with you a range of health and wellbeing activities that you can participate in with your child.
We want to remind parents/carers that supporting your wellbeing is also extremely important to us. We will continue to share self care tips every 'Wellbeing Wednesday'.

Focus on things that you can control:
With so many things out of our control at the moment, it can really help to focus on the things that you can control. This is particularly helpful if you are trying to start some new healthier habits. So for example, instead of saying “I will get fit”, say something like “I will go for a 20 minute walk every day”, because this is something you can actually control. Or instead of saying “I will stop worrying about coronavirus”, say something like, “I will only look at websites I trust to read information about coronavirus, and won’t look at them more than once a day.”
