  • Try a rich and varied diet with 5 prtions of fruit and veg everyday
  • Snack sensibly (e.g. fresh fruit, nuts and seeds)
  • Limit yur intake of fast food to as little as possible
  • Drink plenty of fluids

Regular exercise has shown to have numerous benefits to our wellbeing, some of these include:

  • Getting a better night’s sleep
  • Reducing stress
  • Mood regulation
  • Maintenance of a healthy weight

Types of exercise can include Yoga, walking, running, weights, body weight exercises (squats, press ups, jump jacks, burpees).
