Five Ways to Well-being


Connect with the people around you…Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them.

Be active

Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical activity you enjoy.

Take notice…

Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Be aware of the world around you.

Keep learning…

Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving.


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.
