KAL Newsletter - Week 11 - Wellbeing

We hope you had a good week & weekend? We also hope you are finding these articles useful and if you have been incorporating any of the 5 ways to wellbeing into your week you have started to feel the benefit.

Here are some more ideas for this week.

Monday - Connect

The government has set out its plan to return life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS.

As we move into step two of the plan to rebuild, the most important thing we can continue to do is to stay alert, control the virus, and, in doing so, save lives.


Read the most updated Government Guidance from Monday 1 June to ensure you are following social distancing guidelines when connecting with friends and family.

Tuesday - Get Active

Morning people tend to be ‘get up and go’ types who feel proactive in the mornings, wide awake at an early hour, and prefer to be productive before lunchtime. Night owls tend to stay awake long after darkness falls and are happy to keep working late into the night.

Take the quiz to find out what time of day you're at your best and you feel most active.

Wednesday - Give

Kirklees COVID-19 Community Response is aimed at supporting those who are most vulnerable and in need of support, and who cannot currently get this help directly from friends, relatives or neighbours.


If you need support, or if you can offer support, you can get in touch via this website.

Thursday - Keep Learning

COVID-19 has already brought major changes to our lives. Whilst many are at home, there are key workers that are still in the workplace keeping the country moving.


From getting to work with limited public transport to increased health worries, being at work during the COVID-19 outbreak comes with its own unique set of challenges and stresses.

Friday - Take Notice 

Due to the current restrictions to reduce the spread of coronavirus, we’re spending more time at home.


For those that are working from home remotely and even for those just watching a few extra series on Netflix, it can add up to a lot of time sitting down, taking its toll on our back and overall health. This fact sheet looks at why sitting too much is such a risk, back care when working from home and ways to improve posture.
