On May 16, 2024, we actively participated in Mental Health Day to raise awareness and promote the importance of mental well-being.


To mark the occasion, we committed to walking at least 1 mile each day around the park, recognising the crucial role that physical movement plays in maintaining mental health. In solidarity and to signify our support for mental health awareness, we wore green, the colour symbolising mental health awareness.

Additionally, we organised a competition for the best-dressed person in green. This fun and engaging activity added a sense of community and enthusiasm to our observance of Mental Health Day, further highlighting the importance of mental health in a supportive and spirited manner.

We have also been maintaining good mental health by adopting a nutritious diet and healthy eating habits. Here are some tips that we have been using @thepark and can help:

1. Eat Regular Meals: Consistency in meal timing helps regulate blood sugar levels, which can affect mood and energy levels. Aim to eat three balanced meals a day, with healthy snacks in between if needed.

2. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is crucial for overall health, including mental well-being.

3. Variety of Foods: Consuming a wide range of foods ensures you get a variety of nutrients. Incorporate different types of proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats into your diet.

4. Colourful Fruits and Vegetables: These are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which are essential for brain health. Aim to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables of different colours at each meal. Examples include:
o Red: tomatoes, strawberries, red bell peppers
o Orange: carrots, sweet potatoes, oranges
o Yellow: bananas, yellow peppers, corn
o Green: spinach, broccoli, kale, green apples
o Blue/Purple: blueberries, eggplants, grapes

5. Limit Processed Foods and Sugars: High intake of processed foods and sugars can negatively impact mental health.

6. Healthy Fats: Incorporate sources of healthy fats such as avocados, nuts, seeds, and oily fish like salmon.
