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…

What are the 5 ways to wellbeing?

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

I am pledging to continue to invest in my mental wellbeing by attending yoga before work twice a week - so apologies to those who request meetings when these sessions are on!

Peoples mental health is as important as their physical health and I am keen to help raise awareness of this. Therefore am pledging as a small business to raise awareness in the construction industry by always checking in and asking those around me if they are okay, as well as being there to listen.

I pledge to do something every day to recognise the importance of investing in my own wellbeing (i.e. walking (rather than driving) my son to school, ten minutes of mindfulness during my commute, stepping away from the desk to have my packed lunch with fabulous colleagues) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
