Activities You Can Do At Home

11 Calming Activities For Young People

Calm Ahoy Kids have some great resources available on their website for calming activities you can do with young people over the Easter Holidays. Getting a bit creative can make a massive difference to our mental health, so why not get a bit artsy?

You can find their resources here.

Get Walking Over Easter

The Spring months are a great opportunity to get out and see wildlife coming into blossom – so why not get out and explore some local walking trails near you over the Easter Period? It’s a great opportunity to get out and uncover things you may have never noticed in your local area.

You can find some walking routes here. 

Wellbeing Activities For Adults

There are lots of different things you can try over the Easter Months to help to put a spring in your step! Public Health Dorset have a great resource which we think could be used locally in Kent – encouraging people to embrace the benefits of the 6 Ways To Wellbeing.

Check out some of what they are advising here. 

Whether you celebrate Easter or not, we hope that you are able to rest, unwind and recuperate a little over the Bank Holiday weekend. Please remember that there is support out there if you need it – don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for a little extra help this weekend.
