From the Nurse

This article is the last ‘From the Nurse’ in Black & White. After 14 years of thinking ‘what shall I write about?’, I now won’t have to do that anymore! Health information is available in so many different ways that the newsletter format is no longer necessary. I will still post info on Spaces as varying issues come to light at school.

I will finish with a checklist of positive health tips which have been covered over the years:

  • Wash your hands
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Make sure your vaccinations are up to date
  • Drink water
  • Get regular exercise
  • Donate blood and become an organ donor
  • Look after your relationships
  • Find a GP you can talk to
  • Learn new things
  • Use mindfulness
  • Get a good nights’ sleep
  • Enjoy the outdoors
  • Socialise
  • Visit the dentist
  • Report any symptoms early
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Spend time with a pet
  • Think more positively
  • Laugh often
