Your summer of family wellbeing

Whether it’s getting active, eating better, learning a new skill or just reconnecting, make this summer the time you and your family go on a wellbeing journey together. We’ve got over 60 ideas to help you out – some take just five minutes and can be squeezed in after or before work, some a whole afternoon so you can use them for inspiration for days off, oh, and nearly all of them can be done for free or very little money, meaning you don’t have to spend a fortune. So, whether your kids are toddlers or teens, you’ll find something to suit you and your brood!
But it’s not all about the children, we’ve got some essential reading for the over-18s too, from surviving the summer party season, to the small lifestyle changes you can make that have a big impact on your wellbeing.

Now, time to have fun in the sun!
