5 Ways to Wellbeing

  1. Connect

Connect with people around you; with family, friends, neighbours

  • Phone or email a friend who you don’t see often.

  • Walk in nature.

  • Spend time with pets and animals.

2. Be Active

Keep your mind and body active. Step outside your house or go for a walk or run. Play a sport, dance, ride a bike or do some gardening. Find something you enjoy and do it regularly. Exercising makes you feel good and helps to clear your mind.

  • Go for a walk or run.

  • Ride a bike.

  • Dance.

  • Play a game.

  • Try gardening.

  • Walk the dog

3. Keep learning

Try something new or rediscover a past interest. Learn to sew, read a new book, cook a recipe or play a new game. Learning can be fun. It can give you a sense of achievement and build your confidence.

4. Be aware

Be aware of the world around you; notice the changing seasons and the beautiful sights, smells and sounds as you do your daily activities. Notice how you feel.

  • Notice the sun or rain on your skin, the sensation of the heat or the cold.

  • Use your senses to notice the presence of others – their smell, touch, voice, smile and/or laugh and your reaction to them.

  • Keep a gratitude journal – write down the things you are grateful for on a daily basis.

  • Take photos of nature’s beauty – get them printed on paper or canvas.

  • Reminding yourself to take notice of your thoughts, feelings, body sensations and the world around you is the first step to mindfulness.

5. Help Others

Do something kind for a friend or family member. Thank someone, smile or say hello.
