Five ways to wellbeing
The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand is promoting The Five Ways to Wellbeing:
- Take Notice
- Keep Learning
- Be Active
Incorporating these actions into daily life at work and at home should help promote a sense of wellbeing.
- Take in the view – stop, turn around and feel proud of how far you’ve come and what you’ve achieved
- Feel grateful
- Do something nice everyday – eg. phone a friend, a walk, a rest
- Schedule in ‘me’ time – it’s important to reset and recharge
- Have fun
- Mindfulness – many courses available with proven benefits
Mentemia App - is headed up by John Kirwin and is free to download. It sends you a short message or simple call to action every day. Their philosophy is “small everyday actions help keep us well.”
