Five Ways to Wellbeing

Wellbeing is about feeling good and enjoying your day-to-day life.  The things we do and the way we think impact our wellbeing.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are evidence-based ways in which you can increase a sense of your wellbeing:

  1. Connect with your friends, family, neighbors, and people at work. Have a conversation, pass the time of day, make time for that chat.
  2. Be Active: find a physical activity that you enjoy – go for a walk, try gardening
  3. Take Notice: take the time to look at the day, the changing seasons; savour the moment.
  4. Keep Learning: try something new, whether it’s making a new recipe, fixing the bike, or even signing up for a course
  5. Give: smile, do something nice for a neighbor, make some time for others
