Feeling ok about myself Overhanging boy

We know that to have a healthy body, it's important to keep active, eat healthy food and keep clean.

But a healthy mind is important too, so you feel good in yourself.

Being your own best friend

We look after and care about our friend’s feelings, and we should do the same for ourselves:

  • Make an effort to feel good about the way you look
  • Notice your good qualities, whether that’s your sense of humour or the way you are loyal to your friends
  • We are all talented in different ways. What are you especially good at? Perhaps you kind, creative, good at sport, a great cook. Whatever it is, be proud
