The Keep Well campaign, recently launched nationally as part of the National Plan for Living with COVID-19, aims to support people and communities to mind their physical and mental health over the coming months. The campaign focuses on our personal and collective resilience and wellbeing and it invites each of us to start with ourselves — keeping well individually will help us support one another and our communities.

The Keep Well campaign builds on the In This Together campaign which happened earlier in the year and provides guidelines, information, and tips on how we can add healthy and helpful habits to our daily and weekly routines around five simple actions as follows:

  1. Keeping active – keeping active and being outdoors, even during the winter, is important to help physical and mental health and wellbeing.
  2. Keeping in contact – staying connected with people, addressing isolation, supporting volunteerism and initiatives that support person-to-person connection is important to our wellbeing.
  3. Getting creative – switching off and being creative or learning something new, getting back to nature and finding ways to relax can help our general wellbeing.
  4. Eating Well – by nourishing our bodies and minds, we can develop a better connection between the food we eat and how we feel and positively impact our physical and mental wellbeing.
  5. Minding your mood – it is important to find out where to go if you or someone you know needs support. The HSE’s website
    has useful information as well as the HSE online Minding Your Wellbeing programme.

Please take action today! Make a daily plan to do at least one thing every day that will keep you well.

There is an abundance of things to do and to discover in Galway.
