Five Ways To Wellbeing

The Five Ways to Wellbeing is a set of evidence-based actions aimed at improving people’s wellbeing. They are simple things people can do in their everyday lives to promote their wellbeing and help prevent mental health problems.

CONNECT

With the people around you, with family, friends, workmates and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Think of connections as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.

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 that suits your levels of fitness and mobility.
