MAKE TIME EACH DAY TO CONNECT
CONNECT WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU
Your work colleagues, friends, neighbours, at home, work, school or in your local community. By staying connected and nurturing these relationships we feel happier and more secure, giving a better sense of purpose.
BRING ACTIVITY INTO THE EVERYDAY.
GO FOR A WALK OR A RUN
Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Discover a physical activity you enjoy and suits your lifestyle and level of mobility and fitness. Scientists confirm physical activity can help maintain wellbeing and good mental health.
BE AWARE OF THE WORLD AROUND YOU AND WHAT YOU ARE FEELING
Catch sight of the beautiful. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment as you are out for a walk or talking to friends. Notice how you are feeling and thinking.
TRY SOMETHING NEW
Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Take on a new responsibility. Setting yourself a challenge and learning new skills will make you more confident as well as being great fun.
GIVING TO OTHERS IS GOOD FOR YOU
DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
Thank someone. Volunteer your time or join a community group. Seeing yourself and your happiness linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and create connectedness with the people around you.
