5 Steps to Personal Wellbeing



Maintain contact and make time to be with family, friends, colleagues, and neighbours. Connect with others at home or work and in your local community.

Try something new. Set yourself a challenge. Seek out an evening or daytime course. Take up a new (or old) hobby, learn to play an instrument, learn a new language or skill. Be creative!

Be active. Get some physical exercise. Get outside! Walk, run, cycle, swim, play, work out, garden or dance.

Give. Do something nice for a friend or a stranger. Say thank you or just smile at others. Do some voluntary work or join a community group.

Be curious. Become aware and take notice of your environment. Catch sight of t
he beautiful, savour the moment.
