Did you know it's World Wellbeing Week? It is now in its 3rd year and originates from Jersey, Channel Islands. The objective of wellbeing week is to give young people knowledge and guidance to help manage their mental health. They do this by using the 5 ways of wellbeing. Give, Be active, Keep Learning, Connect & Take Notice!
Random acts of kindness can give a big boost to your wellbeing whether that be as small as buying a stranger a coffee or slightly bigger gestures like volunteering your time for an organisation that does litter picking or peer support.
Not only will being active improve physical health and fitness, it can also release endorphins which will improve your overall mood and helps to decrease stress, depression and anxiety.
Learning something new each day can be good for our wellbeing, as it helps us view the world from a range of perspectives which makes it easier to adapt to new situations and inspire creativity within us.
Developing healthy social relationships can increase our feelings of happiness, security, belonging and self-worth. Creating bonds with people allows us to feel secure.
Taking notice allows you to be present in the moment, appreciating the things that you have, and not dwelling on thoughts that are out of your control.
So, what will you be doing?
