The mental benefits of Activity

Activity is one of the best ways to combat any mental stress or strain you may be feeling as a result of the restrictions and isolation. From improving self confidence and belief, to lowering your levels of stress and anxiety, being active gives you a release from the day to day struggles we all have and face but find it difficult to admit to.

With this in mind we want to hear from you!

How have you been coping with lock down and what effect has it had on you? Please complete the following survey below to help us better understand how you can benefit from the project.
