CONNECT – Connect with the people around you: your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Spend time developing these relationships.
BE ACTIVE – Take a walk, go cycling or play a game of football. Find the activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life. Join in with extracurricular activities at school.
KEEP LEARNING – Learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and confidence.
GIVE TO OTHERS – Even the smallest act can count, whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word. Larger acts such as volunteering at your local community centre, can improve your mental wellbeing and help you build new social networks.
BE MINDFUL – Be more aware of the present moment, including your feelings and thoughts, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”, and it can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges.
