DO you find read­ing helps you to re­lax or dis­tracts you from your wor­ries?

New Na­tional Lit­er­acy Trust re­search has found that chil­dren who en­joy read­ing and writ­ing are sig­nif­i­cantly hap­pier than those who don’t en­joy it.

Words For Life has sev­eral read­ing and writ­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that can sup­port you in look­ing af­ter your men­tal health and well­be­ing, such as writ­ing a worry jour­nal or cre­at­ing a calm-down glit­ter jar.

There’s also a list full of great books for all ages, and free mind­ful­ness colour­ing sheets. Visit words­for­life.org.uk/well­be­ing to find out more.

For book rec­om­men­da­tions, ac­tiv­i­ties and games, go to words­for­life.org.uk.
