The summer holidays can be a time full of mixed emotions for everyone. Some people miss the routine of school and miss seeing their friends every day, others love having no obligations and the freedom to spend their time how they like. Some people will pack their summer holidays full of activities (or may have parents and carers who are always trying to keep them busy) while others will spend the days with very few plans and enjoy relaxing.
It is very likely that this summer will feel different than others due to the current pandemic and most things in our lives being far from ‘normal’. We thought we would take this time to think about ways in which you can spend your time this summer which will in turn help you look after your mental health and wellbeing.
One of the best ways to look after your own mental health and wellbeing is to think about and include activities in your daily life which link to the 5 ways to wellbeing. Find out more about the 5 ways to wellbeing on our Staying Healthy page.
Below are some suggestions of things you could do specifically during this summer holiday period although you will likely find them helpful all year round.
We have also included some links and information about events which we know are taking place in Wiltshire over the summer. If you know about any other events that you think we should be sharing with people here then please let us know using the Contact Us page.
