Physical Activity makes you feel good!
International research proves that being physically active improves mental health by reducing anxiety, depression and negative moods and by improving self-esteem and cognitive function. This is particularly important during COVID-times.
To raise awareness about these facts, and because we know how important it is to find lots of different ways to keep everyone active throughout the year, we are introducing a NEW initiative called #FeelGoodFridays
On the last teaching Friday of each month we are asking schools to share* with @activeflag @HealthyIreland the ways that schools have found to inject FUN and inclusive physical activity into the school day.
Every month will have a different focus with lots of opportunities to win prizes for your school. The first #FeelGoodFriday will launch on October 23rd, 2020 – Details to follow.
*subject to the AUP policy of the schools
