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.
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.
