A Wellbeing Guide from In It Together Somerset
In It Together Somerset are excited to launch their first ever Wellbeing Guide!
We understand how important our wellbeing is for our physical and mental health, so we decided to create a guide that can be used throughout the year, at any time that works for you! Throughout each section, you will be able to find ways of getting active, find inspiration, motivation and resources to help you.
This guide is for women ages 16+ in Somerset to use throughout the year to find ways of getting active, find inspiration, motivation and resources to help you.
"We see and hear the word 'wellbeing' everywhere and it's quite a broad concept, but ultimately it's about identifying what is good for you, in the matter of self-interest, and ensuring what you do provides value, enjoyment and good feelings.Biting off more than you can chew is overwhelming. Doing things incrementally helps you to keep more consistent and therefore achieve success quicker. This applies to almost anything; from your fitness and health goals to your day-to-day prioritising."
- Charlotte Norman, Women's Development Officer, SASP
About In It Together Somerset: We want to help women to be more active in the everchanging landscape right now, but also break down the physical and mental barriers women in Somerset are currently facing. The 'In It Together' project is so important for this reason, with not only new barriers being faced, but pre-existing barriers (pre-pandemic) that are faced daily by women. The reality of these challenges is that this isn't unique to a few women, these issues are experienced by your mother, your daughter, your neighbours, your colleagues. The sport, activity and exercise course/classes we are offering is hoped to remove the pressure of physical activity perceived by women that have been placed upon them for far too long.
