Why Feeling Good is Good for You.
Caring for yourself and others.
We all know we need to be better about minding our mental health, particularly as we emerge from periods of isolation and when our health and wellbeing routines may have been interrupted.
Getting active is one of the best ways of caring for mental health. Did you know that exercise actually releases a chemical called dopamine which dilutes the hormones caused by stress.
But with our increasingly demanding lives, bottomless in-boxes and digital distractions, putting this into practise can be daunting.
That's why FeelGood with Pieta is such a breath of fresh air.
By taking some simple steps to connect, be active and feel good, you can promote wellbeing, boost morale within your team, improve your physical and mental health and improve your quality of life.
And by taking part in FeelGood with Pieta, you'll also be sharing a truly memorable experience by sending a powerful message of hope and helping to provide lifesaving support to those affected by suicide and self-harm.
