There is a link between your physical and mental health if we look after our physical health such as getting enough sleep, a good diet, fresh air and exercise and trying to avoid caffeine ( including energy drinks) this will help you to feel better i.e. less anxious, less irritable and generally happier within yourself

I have fallen out with friends in the past too but I don't let it get to me anymore coz it happens a lot and I talk to somebody at school when I'm worried. Would you try that?

So sorry but we lost connection during the chat today. Thank you for your comments if you have further concerns about your worries you could speak to a someone supportive at school such as a teacher, support staff or school Nurse.
Look after yourselves, stay safe because we all have the right to feel safe all of the time, and there is nothing too small that we cannot talk to someone about it.
