World Book Day 3rd March and mental health

Friday 25th February 2022

The theme of World Book Day 3rd March 2022 is reading for pleasure: Feeling sense of satisfaction or pleasure by engaging with chosen material in their free time.

Here are some suggestions for links to mental health concepts from Strormbreak: resilience, self-care, relationships, self-worth, hope and optimism.

Resilience: Reading can help to label difficult emotions. Completing challenging books can make you feel more resilient.

Self-Care: Choosing to care for yourself by setting time aside to read regularly.

Relationships: Choosing books and reading together is a positive way to bond and explore relationships.

Self-worth: Reading can help us to build confidence in ourselves, as well as seeing how others model their own experiences and self worth.

Hope and Optimism: Reading takes us to new places. It can help us to explore and to have new dreams.
