What is Wellbeing?
"the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy"
The importance of self care
For many parents and carers, finding time for yourself can be a challenge as you juggle family and relationships with your home and work life.
With the practicalities of day-to-day life, it can be easy to forget to look after your own wellbeing needs, as well as those of your children, which can lead to feelings of stress or being overwhelmed. Factoring in regular time or activities for yourself will hopefully allow you to enjoy the good moments in life more and to find strength during difficult times.
The food you eat can have an impact on your physical and mental health. Ensuring you and your family have a healthy diet can improve your mood, give you more energy and help you think more clearly.
Sleep plays a crucial role in the development of children In addition to having a direct effect on happiness, research shows that sleep impacts alertness and attention, cognitive performance, mood, resilience and learning memory.
