5 ways to wellbeing


The 5 ways to wellbeing are:

- Connect,
- Be active,
- Take notice,
- Keep learning, and
- Give.

Below you can find out what each method of wellbeing means and how to practice them.

Being active is not only great for your physical health and fitness, but it is also great for your mental wellbeing.

Do those DIY and gardening jobs that you have been putting off. If you do not fall into one of the high risk groups, you are currently allowed to go outside for exercise.

Remember to follow appropriate isolation and distancing restrictions and stay away from others by at least 2m. You can also do exercises at home – no equipment needed, just some floor space!

How can I be active?

  • There are lots of home work out videos available online, everything from yoga to dancing!
  • Use Active10, a free app developed by the NHS to track how much you are walking.
