World Mental Health Day is celebrated annually on October 10th to raise awareness about mental heath and promote well-being. World Mental Heath Day is an opportunity to challenge the stigma around mental heath and to promote the importance of mental heath well-being. It is also a day to raise awareness about resources that are available to people who are struggling.
The Wellbeing at Work team at Dugdale Nutrition would like to highlight the importance of reaching out for help if you feel that you are struggling, not only in our workplace but in and around our local community.
A recent study has shown that 94% of UK farmers under 40 rank poor mental health as the biggest hidden problem that they face today!

Be physically active. Regular exercise is good for both your physical and mental health.
Get enough sleep. When you're well-rested, you're better able to cope with stress and manage your emotions.
Eat a healthy diet. Eating nutritious foods gives your body the energy it needs to function properly.
Learn to manage stress. Find healthy ways to cope with stress, such as exercise, relaxation techniques or spending time in nature.
