Care and Support Helps Everyone Succeed
back to the home page
Looking after your Health and Mental Wellbeing are incredibly important in these worrying times (both parents and children). Over the next few weeks I will be giving you some ideas that can help you keep physically fit (and ones that can be done as a whole family) as well as a weekly sports challenge. I will also upload some videos of me doing some of these activities with my family at home, it would be great if you can share yours with me by email email@example.com or share them on our facebook page.
I will also give you some ideas to help you stay positive and look after your mental wellbeing whilst staying at home, hopefully they will help you connect as a family and help you enjoy your time together at home - hopefully one of the benefits of this terrible situation will be the chance for families and communities to come closer together. I know I have enjoyed the chance to spend some extra time with my family at home and have also spent time helping out our neighbours who are self isolating with jobs like cutting the grass etc.
Your first weeks challenge is throwing and catching - see clip below.
