Wellbeing Week | 18/11/19 - 22/11/19


Be Active Day - Monday 18th November

Wellbeing week is taking place from the 18th - 22nd November, and kicking off the week is Be Active Day (Monday 18th November). Getting active is not only great for your physical health but can also improve your mental wellbeing. However, it doesn't mean you have to spend hours in the gym if you don't want to - focus on what you enjoy, there are plenty of other physical activities that you can do and fit into your daily life.

Themes for each day of the whole week are:

Monday – Be Active

Tuesday – Take Notice

Wednesday – Learn

Thursday – Connect

Friday – Give

For full details of everything going on see this website for details.
