Exercise and Mental Health for Carers

Hi friends,We filmed this little podcast in February but have whipped it out now because in times of challenge and change, being able to look for little moments to exercise and release stress is important.  We are not gym gurus, nor are we doctors, so check with a health professional before you do any big exercise.  This podcast explores our stories on how we have used exercise to feel mentally better as we care for our children.Note- we mention things like group exercise.  During this COVID-19 time, this may not be possible, so we encourage you to jump online and see what free things you can do from home.Big love to you! Thanks for joining Kate and Fi!
