LESSON NOTES
============
Three things go together. Your:
– physical wellbeing
– mental wellbeing
– productive capacity

Notice, by the way, the word ‘capacity’.
You do also need to exert willpower to actually be productive!

Looking after your mind and body comes down to four things:
1. Fuel: Good quality food is vital for both physical and mental health.
2. Exercise: Build some form of routine exercise into your life.
3. Rest: Create a sound night-time routine and prioritize sufficient good quality sleep.
4. Relationships: The quality of your relationships has a huge impact on your mental and emotional wellness.

RECOMMENDED EXERCISE
======================
1. Consider your diet. If you aren’t sure what a good diet should look like, do some research. But the key here is to plan some small changes to your diet and then review regularly. For now, what do you need to do first? Review, plan, and put changes in place over the next few weeks. (3 MC CPD Points)
2. Consider your exercise. What is your current pattern of exercise? Do you get at least 20 minutes of exercise on at least three days a week? This is probably the absolute minimum! Decide what changes you need to make. Find a form of exercise that works for you. Review, plan, and put changes in place over the next few weeks. (3 MC CPD Points)
3. Consider your rest. Are you getting enough sleep? 8 hours per day is a good average. And are you getting some good quality relaxation time during your week and at weekends? If not, plan and put changes in place over the next few weeks. (3 MC CPD Points)
4. Consider your relationships. How strong are the ones that matter most to you? What can you do to maintain and strengthen them? What about important relationships that you have let slide over the last year? Review, plan, and put changes in place over the next few weeks. (3 MC CPD Points)
