It’s never too late to learn a new skill or take on a new challenge. Doing it will make you feel proud. Try a new recipe, learn an instrument or take a course.
It’s not often that we stop to notice the world around us, but make time to have a look around once in a while, it will make you feel differently. Try noticing the Spring flowers or the Autumn leaves.
Spending time with other people is important to everyone’s mental wellbeing. Connecting with others whether it’s family, friends, colleagues or neighbours can give us a boost when we need one. Try meeting up with friends or chat to a neighbour.
However we do it, doing something for someone else gives us a lift. Helping a friend or stranger could make their day. And that simple act of kindness can go a long way to making you feel good too. Try helping someone with their shopping or giving up your seat on the bus.
It doesn’t have to be an intense exercise regime but keeping active is key to keeping our bodies healthy and making us feel good. Doing something you enjoy is the most important bit. Try walking, cycling or playing a game.
