5 ways to
mental wellbeing

Connect...

Connect with the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and
neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community.
Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing
them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.

Be active...

Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance.
Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical
activity you enjoy and one that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

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. Be aware of the world around you and what
you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what
matters to you.

Keep learning...

Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Take
on a different responsibility at work. Fix a bike. Learn to play an instrument
or how to cook your favourite food. Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving.
Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.

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.
Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be
incredibly rewarding and creates connections with people around you.

Foresight’s Mental Capital and Wellbeing Project (2008) drew on research from across the world to consider how to improve everyone’s
mental wellbeing through life. The project commissioned the Centre for Wellbeing at the New Economics Foundation to develop ‘five
ways to wellbeing’: a set of evidence based actions to improve personal mental wellbeing.
