Keep Well Campaign

The ‘Keep Well’ campaign is aimed at showing people of all ages how we can mind our own physical and mental health and wellbeing by adding healthy and helpful habits to our daily and weekly routines.  The Healthy Ireland website provides guidelines, information, and tips on things that will help us keep well over the coming months.

This campaign builds on the ‘In This Together’ campaign which happened earlier in the year and is supported by the Government Plan for Living with COVID-19: Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021.

The ‘Keep Well’ campaign focuses on five key ways to wellbeing.  These are simple actions that can be practiced each day to maintain or improve our mental health and wellbeing.  The five ways to wellbeing, supported by this campaign are:

  1. Keeping active
  2. Keeping in contact
  3. Switching off and being creative
  4. Eating well
  5. Managing your mood
