Keeping Mentally Healthy

Advice for keeping mentally healthy

Pupils: The most important thing during this time is to stay healthy – and that includes in your mind as well as your body. Everyone’s mental health is different. Some of you will find it comforting to do lots of school work and some of you will find having a long ‘to do’ list makes you anxious. Listen to your body – and your mind. For most, maintaining some kind of routine is a good idea. Perhaps do a mix of reading, exercise, school work and fun stuff. Use this time to learn a new skill or develop an interest. Here is further advice from children’s charity UNICEF: www.unicef.org/coronavirus
