Nutrition and Hydration
Your food choices each day affect your health. Try to make the effort to eat well, eat regularly, and to enjoy what you eat.
Why not try some of these simple changes to your diet:
- Make half your plate fruit and vegetables.
- Switch to whole grains.
- Try fat-free or low-fat milk.
- Choose a variety of lean proteins.
- Swap sugary drinks for water.
Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day. If you’re feeling thirsty you’re already dehydrated so don’t wait until you need a drink, sip small amounts throughout the day to keep yourself hydrated. The body is affected even when you lose a small amount of fluid.
Time to Talk
Thursday 6 February is time to talk day so lets get involved to help end mental health discrimination. Choosing to talk about mental health breaks down barriers and can save lives.
We want to encourage everyone to have a conversation about mental health – whether that’s texting a friend or chatting to a colleague.
