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.

Good relationships are important for your mental wellbeing. Keep connecting with your family, friends or colleagues even though you cannot meet in person.

Make time to talk to someone over the phone or video chat, or just send a text or email. Ask how someone’s day was and really listen when they tell you.

How can I connect?

  • Facebook community groups – find one that is local to where you live.
  • FaceTime / video chat with friends and family.
  • Look online to see if you can join a virtual community choir.
