5 ways to wellbeing 2019-05-24T17:20:18+00:00

Hello, welcome, it is good to see you here!

We all take steps to look after our physical health, whether it is eating healthy or simply brushing our teeth. But when was the last time you took care of your mental wellbeing? We are inviting you to take a pledge to look after your mental wellbeing,ย using the โ€˜5 ways to wellbeingโ€™ as your guide:

  1. Connect with the people around me
  2. Be active in a way that suits me and that I enjoy
  3. Take notice and be mindful of my surroundings
  4. Keep learning new skills and developing myself
  5. Give what I can whether it is my time or simply a random act of kindness

While a focus on these steps has been shown to have a positive impact on mental wellbeing, how you apply them to your life is up to you!

For ideas on easy steps you could take select one of the 5 ways above or make your pledge now…

I pledge to look after my mental wellbeing in the same I would my physical health.

I am making this pledge to look after my mental well-being by walking in the countryside more and to look for chances I'm my daily life for random acts of kindness.

Get more active and make time to play. Both ways of valuing myself.

I pledge to spend more time investing in my own mental wellbeing as well as that of others and recognise the importance of self-care and that this does not always mean bath bombs and face masks (although they can be a good start!)

Time for me is as important as time for everything else. I will take time out, everyday, for me. But I will take the time to think of those around me as they as so important to my overall wellbeing.
