Health Information Week!

This week is Health Information Week!                                                                                                            

We all need health information that we can trust. This has been highlighted more than ever over the past year.

We also need to look after our well-being, whether our mental health or our physical health.

In response to these needs, the Health Information Week 2021 project team has decided to focus in on a different theme each day. Exeter Health Library will be keeping you updated throughout the week! Today’s theme is Quality marks – helping you to know whether sources of health information are trustworthy!

Mental health can benefit from forest bathing, known in Japan as shinrin yoku – being mindful in nature while breathing deeply induces calm and quiet from the mental chatter.  A natural way to help to destress.  Find your nearest tree filled green space and try it out! 

You can find this book in our Health and Wellbeing Collection – Into the forest: how trees can help you find health and happiness – Dr Qing Li https://tinyurl.com/wvj889m8
