Wednesday Wellbeing


This half term, there are lots of activities to enjoy in and around Bracknell Forest, to help you celebrate the Jubilee, and spend time with friends and family. Whether you are enjoying afternoon tea with friends, a street party, or visiting an organised event, remember to take some quiet time.

And it's perfectly OK to do something small and low-key, just for yourself.



Top tips to survive half-term week! We understand the platinum jubilee celebrations are not for everyone and some of you maybe missing spending time with us at the recovery college.

Remember these top tips Breathe - practicing breathing techniques is a useful way to a calmer state. Go for a walk - getting outside and amongst nature is a powerful mind refresh. Write down "3 good things" that have happened each day and read them back.



As today is the 1st day of June, we thought you might like to start the Joyful June calendar from Action for Happiness.

We will all be following this at the recovery college and would love to see photos and updates of your "Joyful June's". Add or share them on our social media sites and spread the joy!
