FIVE WAYS TO WELLBEING   as developed by NEF commissioned by the Government's Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing, the report recommends five ways towards well-being and copied directly from the website.

 

Connect

 

Connect with the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community.

Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you everyday.  

 

Be Active

 

Go for a walk or run.  Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly discover a physical activity you enjoy and one that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

 

Take Notice

 

Be curious.   Catch sight of the beautiful.   Remark on the unusual.   Notice the changing seasons.   Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends.   Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling.   Reflecting on your experience will help you appreciate what matters to you.

 

Keep Learning

 

Try something new.   Rediscover an old interest.   Sign up for that course.   Take on a different responsibility at work.   Fix a bike. Learn to play an instrument or how to cook your favourite  food.  Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving    Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.

 

Give

 

Do something nice for a friend or a stranger.   Thank someone.   Smile.   Volunteer your time.  Join a community group.   Look out as well as in.   Seeing yourself and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.
