The change in our routines and uncertainty about the times ahead can be leaving adults and children feeling stressed and/or worried. It is important you take some time out to relax.
“When we relax, the flow of blood increases around our body giving us more energy. It helps us to have a calmer and clearer mind which aids positive thinking, concentration, memory and decision making. Relaxation slows our heart rate, reduces our blood pressure and relieves tension. It also aids digestion as we absorb essential nutrients more efficiently when relaxed, which helps to fight off disease and infection”.
(Well Being People)
With this in mind, do some activities you and your little ones find relaxing, blow bubbles in the garden with your child or watch a cartoon they love or share some cuddles. If there are other relaxing activities you and your children like, you can do those too.
