Health & Well Being

12 May 2011

One of our Floating Support clients regularly writes poetry, and has been lucky enough to have some published. They regularly contribute poems for our events and also use it to express their own feelings and have a record of their own life events....and amazingly can recite them all off by heart! We always look forward to hearing a new poem and we are so pleased that they have agreed we can publish the poems on our website......this is a recent one on Health & Well Being:

Health & well-being comes from within
A healthy diet not only gives you good skin
But can contribute to how your mental health is
Whatever may be your own diagnosis
Medication is of paramount importance too
To miss any of your doses may affect you
A long time ago I came off Lithium for a year
To do this could make you end up, I fear
with a massive relapse and a hospital stay,
Now I take my medication every single day.
Our family and friends help with the way we feel
Like doing something nice for us - inviting us for a meal,
going for a walk in the park, with them or on your own,
sometimes you may just feel like being alone
Reading a book can help to distract you,
swimming is good also to relax you.
Cigarettes and alcohol should be in moderation
Just look on the packets for an explanation
A balanced diet - a must for our health all round
with five a day fruit and veg which is sound
Protein, diary, fibre, pulses all help you to maintain
A well-balanced diet - not much sugar cane
All in all our bodies need looking after
Which in turn will make our lives full of laughter
when we reach the pinnacle of physical and mental health
And when we do, it will bring with it a wealth.
