Being active

Exercise elevates our mood and gives us energy. Do activities that you enjoy. Go for a walk or try a class like belly dancing, tai chi or boxercise. The social part is great fun as well. UWA Sports has some great programs and classes.

What ever you do, remember to keep going and make exercise a habit.

Healthy eating

The food you eat has a significant impact on how you feel. Have a good look at what you have been putting in your mouth lately, especially if you have been feeling tired, stressed or low on energy.

Enjoy a variety of foods from the 5 key food groups to promote your mental and physical wellbeing. Have a look at the Australian Dietary Guidelines for more information about healthy eating.
