Annan Rugby have partnered up with The Looseheadz Foundation to Support Players, Coaches, Staff and Volunteers, in these unpredictable times we are living in and going forward into the Future. #TACKLETHESTIGMA
WAYS TO WELLBEING
- CONNECT ~ Stay connected with Family, Friends and Colleagues. Regular contact enables us to share ideas, concerns, worries and offer or received support.
- BE ACTIVE ~ Physical activity is good for our Mental Health, done in a way that is safe and right for you. A good diet, sleep and staying hydrated benefits towards good Mental Health.
- TAKE NOTICE ~ It is important for us to try and focus on being present and in the moment, as our thoughts and feelings about the unknown can overwhelm us.
- KEEP LEARNING ~ Mental stimulation has been shown to protect our Mental Health, taking up a new hobby or rediscovering old interest gives us goals to achieve.
Here at Annan Rugby we aim to build a Mental Health friendly Rugby Club
