As we approach the end of the Summer Term, this edition we have some wise words from Chris Wright, Head of Wellbeing at The Youth Sport Trust.
There is a declining physical and emotional wellbeing of pupils in our schools, but at the Youth Sport Trust we are just as concerned of the impact of poor staff wellbeing. With a recent survey suggesting 87% of school staff has considered leaving the profession it is time to take control of our wellbeing and get back to basics...look after yourself and start this summer!
Whenever I am thinking about addressing wellbeing in my life I start with the 5 ways to wellbeing. It isn’t about losing weight or stopping that Thursday night glass of wine; it is about looking after your holistic wellbeing. It definitely starts with getting active and getting out for summer walks or a cycle here and there. It isn’t always about being hot and sweaty as you will see a difference in just reducing your sitting time. And remember when you are out and about take notice of things around you...landscapes, architecture or just people watch! >>more
