This can cover a multitude of areas of our everyday life and we will be thinking about healthy eating, exercise, mental well-being and hygiene as part of this. Across this week feel free to try out any of the tasks and activities below under the various headings. There is work for some on Purple Mash or worksheets and ideas of what you could make at home. Look at the video clip below before you look at the different areas, it shows how important healthy living is for you.
All humans need food and a healthy, balanced diet helps keep your body healthy. This means that you need to eat food from the different food groups, eat in moderation and try to eat 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables a day. Pick some activities from the list below:
Exercise is essential to keeping healthy. We should be trying to do 60 minutes of exercise a day as children to stay healthy. Head to the Staying Active page for more suggestions on what you could do for exercise. Then try one of the activities below.

Hygiene is very important in order for us to stay healthy, making sure that we are well. There is work on Purple Mash for you to do about washing hands.
Keeping healthy also means looking after your mental health wellbeing. Talking through your emotions, knowing how you feel and having a positive mindset can help you with everyday life and the challenges that we all face. If we look for positives in something that we find challenging rather than the negatives, we can be more successful. Try some of the activities below in order to help your mental wellbeing.
