Activities to improve your wellbeing


Whether you’re feeling low, anxious or actually, you’re in a good place right now – we can all do things every day to support our mental wellbeing, like practising self-care. This will mean different things to different people, but essentially this covers any activity that you enjoy that doesn’t have a negative effect on you (like too much scrolling on social media!).

You may also find it useful to view our Wellbeing support for all Gloucestershire citizens page. If you feel like you need some extra support, there are lots of free, confidential services that can help, see Who can I talk to? for more information.
