Check out Health and Wellbeing Week from the 16th to the 20th of January at Inchicore College of Further Education! 

 The College is holding talks to help people manage their mental health, in their first talk on Monday, it was mentioned by Ethan Taylor that physical activity can have a positive effect on his mental health and so it is important for young people to get enough exercise. 

 On Tuesday they have a talk scheduled with David Odumosu who is a goalkeeper for St Patricks Athletic and he will discuss the benefits of “Staying Fit and Healthy to Maintain a Busy and Successful Career”. Later on Tuesday, there will be another talk given by Caroline Seale about “Nutrition and Lifestyle Tips for Good Physical and Mental Health”. On Wednesday the 18th there will be a 2km run/walk for people willing to participate. 

 The HSE states on its website that adults between the ages of 18 to 64 should get 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity, five days a week. This has been found to reduce stress, help with sleep and provide a boost to your energy levels. Participating in physical activity can also provide a person with ways to meet other people who are looking to better themselves in the same way.  

There will be more talks, workshops, and other activities to raise awareness for health and wellbeing week hosted by Inchicore College of Further Education. If you need help do contact a professional who can help you with your problems.
