Keep Healthy
As we head into the final two weeks of Term 1 it is very common for students and staff alike to begin to feel that energy levels are beginning to drop. It has been a very busy start to the year with many different academic and co-curricular events. There are some small things we can all do to ensure we stay mentally fit and alert as we head towards a very well-deserved two week break.

  • Sleep – none of us can function correctly if we are not getting enough sleep. Students should be getting a minimum of nine hours sleep per night. Students should avoid using electronic devices before their bed time as this can interrupt the process of falling to sleep.
  • Nutrition – A well- balanced diet is a crucial component of health and well-being. A balanced diet includes a high proportion of fruit and vegetables. Students should limit their intake of sugar and fat.
  • Hydration- It is recommended that we all drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day. De-hydration is often the cause of headaches and fatigue.
  • Exercise- when life becomes busy with homework and study, it is easy to neglect this aspect of health and well-being. It is very important that we all try to do a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day. This can be as simple as walking the dog or going for a ride on the bike.

While this advice may seem simple, we know that focussing on the basics can be of significant benefit when life becomes busy and stressful. I do encourage you to contact me directly should you wish to discuss any pastoral matters.
