Taking steps to be Healthy: Inside and Out

Happy Half-Way Through Children’s Mental Health Week! As you know, this week the Tynecastle learning community is thinking about the simple steps we can take to keep ourselves Healthy: Inside and Out. If we are able to take part in them, exercise and physical activity can be an important part of supporting both our our physical and mental wellbeing.

According to a report from the Mental Health Foundation, “even small increases in levels of activity can make a real positive difference, bringing about a cycle of positive reinforcement and motivation to continue”. Our bodies are unique and each person will know best what they can manage when it comes to physical activity – but the evidence is good that every tiny bit helps!

What kinds of things do you like to do to keep your body and mind active and healthy? Whether it’s training for an event or just making sure you take a walk outside every day, there’s something to suit everyone. Tynecastle High School offers a range of opportunities at lunchtimes and after school — have a look at our Sports Clubs and Active Schools page for more information, or contact our Active Schools Coordinator, Ricky Karoyan.
