Having a healthy diet and keeping fit and in good shape is important for your overall health and well-being. It helps to reduce the risk of certain conditions including heart disease, stroke, some cancers, diabetes and osteoporosis. Ultimately, healthy eating helps you to feel great, have more energy and stabilises your mood. It is recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day and women should have around 2,000 calories a day.
If you would like to eat more healthily or lose weight, Live Well Stay Well can support you.
The wellness barn is part of a non-profit social enterprise with an aim to reach a large amount of people within the community to offer classes, workshops, training and retreat days to bring more health, happiness, joy and connection to everyone.

Mental Health Mates aim to provide an informal opportunity for both sufferers and carers to meet with peers and walk and talk without fear of judgment whilst getting some valuable time in the outdoors.

Now the #findyourwe campaign has enabled volunteer led groups to spring up all over the country connecting people dealing with mental ill-health and their carers, loved ones and families who are welcome to attend.
