Just as physical fitness helps our bodies to stay strong, mental fitness helps us to achieve and sustain a state of good mental health.  When we are mentally healthy, we enjoy our life and environment and the people in it.  We can be creative, learn, try new things, and take risks.  We are better able to copie with difficult times in our personal and school lives.  We feel the sadness and anger that can come with the death of a loved one, relationship problems and other difficult events, but in time, we are able to get on with and enjoy our lives once again.  Eating well, getting enough sleep, staying physically active and learning good ways to deal with day to day stress can help you maintain your mental health.  At 11:45 a.m. let’s all take a walk on our track to promote good mental health and raise awareness or mental health.  All staff and students are welcome.  T.
