5 ways to wellbeing

This year nature has been recognised for its mental health benefits by becoming the focus of the mental health awareness campaign for 2021.

 

The Mental Health Foundation have set out 5 ways in which we can connect with nature to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing in our lives.

 

Public Health England's 5 ways to wellbeing are:

 

Connect - Connect with the people around you and build meaningful relationships

Be Active - Find a form of exercise that makes you feel good

Take NoticeBe aware of the world around you and how it makes you feel

Keep Learning - Try something new and set yourself new challenges

Give - Using your skills to help those around you is rewarding 

 

The Campaign can be found here : https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awarenessweek .

 

To support your wellbeing we will be bringing you some exciting events for you to take part in during June.
