As part of Positive Mental Health Awareness Week which took place from October 9-15, Tipperary Education and Training Board (TETB) organised a ‘Fit To Learn Week’ in the gym of the former Army Barracks, Clonmel.
Workshops were open to all staff, tutors and learners. Monday morning began with a mindfulness workshop facilitated by the talented Dee Brady. Tuesday focused on a yoga session with breathing exercises and stretching guided by experienced instructor Finola O’Sullivan. Gabriela Kozlowska and James Bowers oversaw a fit-inducing ‘Boot camp for the Brave’ on Wednesday, October 12. The final day focused on healthy eating and minding ourselves. Fitness Freak’s Richard Kennedy turned the gym into a healthy food workshop. Over seventy people turned up for an energising walk around the block, organised by TETB Adult Learning Scheme, before Richard gave a short presentation on how to prepare simple, healthy recipes. The food was prepared by the students using fresh fruit and vegetables from Martins Shop. It was served by the students who deserve great credit along with their tutors Ann Marie Sweeney and Marie Clancy.
Exercise and eating well are important contributors to good mental health, and this message was heard loud and clear during the Fit To Learn Week.
