Physical and mental wellbeing lesson plan
This lesson from Public Health England explores how looking after our physical health can have a positive impact on our mental wellbeing.
In this lesson, students will learn about different elements of physical wellbeing, including exercising, healthy eating and sleeping well.
They will then learn about how this connects with mental health, and that we have to take care of our mental wellbeing the same way we do as our physical wellbeing.
After this lesson, pupils will be able to:
- explain what wellbeing means
- explain the link between physical and mental wellbeing
- give advice to young people who want to improve their mental wellbeing
