SUNMARKE’S Wellbeing Zone
At Sunmarke, we believe that a combination of a healthy body and a healthy mind leads to a healthy life.
Wellbeing is achieved when you take care of all the different areas of living, from the way you eat, move, sleep to the thoughts and feelings that you experience. On our wellbeing page you will find articles, guided practices and information on many different topics that will help you on your own wellness journey.
In addition, we’ve specially focused on the current health crisis, and how we can help ourselves stay fit, stay healthy and stay calm during this period.
School, studying, friendships and relationships…..they can be exciting, fun, overwhelming and stressful.
It is extremely important to take care of yourself, not just from a physical point of view, it is necessary to make sure you eat healthy, exercise and have restful sleep, but it is as important to make sure you take care of yourself from a social and emotional perspective.
