Welcome to our Wellness Workshop, we have set up this link to encourage Maryfield girls to look after their wellness.

There are four areas to think about;

1.Social Health

2.Physical Health

3.Mental Health

4.Spiritual Health

Please take a look at our video


Mental Health

It is important to relax and de-stress daily. Take time to look after yourself and to focus on the positives in your life.

Talking to a trusted friend or family member can be a great way of de-stressing…a problem shared is a problem halved.

Tips for a healthy mind

Daydream – Think of a dream location

Good Feelings – Make it a point everyday to remember good times.

Learn ways to cope with negative thoughts – Try distracting yourself or comforting yourself, if you can’t solve the problem right away.

Enjoy hobbies – Something fun that you enjoy

Set goals – reaching it will build confidence and a sense of satisfaction.

Share humour – A little humour can go a long way to keeping us mentally fit! :-)


Social and Cultural Health

Making friends and confiding in others is vital in a teenager’s life as it boosts our self-esteem and can help us deal with problems.

Learning about different cultures provides a better understanding of others.


Physical and Nutritional Health

A healthy diet is one that helps maintain or improve general health.

Exercise is very important, it gives us more energy. It also controls weight, reduces the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure. Can relieve stress too. Go for a walk or join a school team.

Remember: Healthy eating does not have to mean giving up the foods you like best, just balance the food choices you make!


Spiritual Health

Spiritual-Health

Spiritual health is the act of living a life with honesty and in line with a spiritual belief system of some kind. Spirituality is about knowing your function in life and you can get that guidance from your heart.

There are different forms of spirituality, such as: meditating, listening to music, reading or even just relaxing.
