Lockdown and Self Care

28th July 2020 / Posted by Susannah Wilks

The last few months of lockdown have been tough for many of us, in many different ways. The pandemic is bringing about a seismic shift in how we will continue to live in our world in the future. This can add to underlying feelings of concern and stress. But there are lots of things we can do to look after ourselves, our families, our neighbours, our wok colleagues. Just as we look after our physical health, it’s important to look after our mental health.

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is running a #selfcaresummer campaign every day over the school summer holidays.There is a self-care resource page with contributions from Young Champions, plus Challenge Tuesdays are an opportunity to share photos, poetry, arts and craft on-line.

Let’s all get involved! We owe it to ourselves!
