Today is ‘mental health awareness day’
What do you do for your own wellbeing?
We’ve all heard that eating five fruit and vegetables a day is good for our physical health. Did you know that there’s a “5-a-day for mental health” too?
1.Connect… With the people around you. With family, friends and colleagues.
2.Be active… Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good.
3.Take notice… Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends.
4.Keep learning… Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Learn to play a musical instrument.
5.Give … Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in.
