Mental Health Awareness Week: The importance of being kind to yourself through sleep and exercise

There is no denying that life as a heating and plumbing professional is physically demanding. But it can be taxing mentally too, with the pressures of running a successful business often meaning that self-care, and being kind to yourself, gets pushed to the bottom of the priority list. With this in mind it’s important that installers not only take time for themselves but also check in on others working within the trade to look after each other. For Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, psychologist Lauretta Wilson explains how increasing our activity can also boost our mental health.
