What about me? Health course
May 6 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Wednesday, repeating until May 27, 2020
This four-week information packed course gives carers with lots of health related hints and tips. We’ll cover healthy eating, physical activity, mental wellbeing, self-care and social isolation.
You will be able to; meet with other carers for support, assess how you feel about your health and wellbeing, identify small changes that you want to make, set goals and receive support to help you to achieve them.
What to expect
This is a course designed by carers for carers, and brought to you by the Carers Good Health Project at Carers Leeds, funded by Bupa UK Foundation in partnership with Carers Trust.
What about me will take place over four consecutive weeks starting Wednesday 06 May and includes lunch. It is preferable that you attend all four sessions of the course.
Previous participants said it was: “a very useful course that gave me a wealth of information and supportive tips”. “It was very inclusive and interesting. I have learnt a lot and it was enjoyable and insightful.”
All attendees said they would recommend the course to someone else.
Week 1: Introductory Week
A chance to get to know each other, and take a look at the course content. Complete a self assessment. Understand what we mean by ‘health and wellbeing’ and why it is so important for carers to be able to prioritise their own.
Week 2: Physical Activity
Includes a talk from Leeds Get Active who tells us about the benefits of physical activity and good nutrition, whilst also discussing some of the theories of ‘behaviour change’.
Week 3: How you Feel
This session will explore assertiveness, loneliness, resilience, self care, stress and relaxation.
Week 4: Time for Yourself
We go for a health walk. Look at how to get a break, pursue hobbies and interests. Revisit the self assessment completed during the introductory session.
