This week is 'Mental Health Awareness Week'
We all understand how eating healthily and exercising is important to keep our bodies healthy but what about our minds?
There are a lot of things happening at the moment that are different to normal and some of these things might be on your mind. You might feel a little different to normal, worried or anxious. You might feel a little confused or frustrated. These are not 'nice' feelings sometimes, but they are normal... everybody can feel this way from time to time.

The focus of this year's Mental Health Week is 'Be kind'.
It is amazing how being kind to someone can make both you and them feel good.
You are such lovely kind people who always support each other, say kind things to each other (the lovely emails I receive from you where you say such kind things about each other's work shows this).
Having things to look forward to can help us feel motivated and excited..
