The Five Ways to Wellbeing are simple actions to practice each day to maintain or improve our mental & physical health and wellbeing, this is what unpins all the events, classes, workshops at the Kent Wellbeing Hub.


What is Wellbeing? The Five Ways to Wellbeing are simple actions to practice each day to maintain or improve our mental & physical health and wellbeing.

  • Wellbeing is feeling good about yourself, the world around you and functioning well in everyday life, most of the time. Being resilient and coping with the normal stresses of life is also an important attribute of wellbeing.
  • There are many things that can influence your wellbeing. These include exercise, diet, sense of belonging, relationships, career, self-care, spirituality, money, where we live, and sense of purpose.
  • Wellbeing is much broader than simply how happy you are. It also includes how satisfied you are with your life, your sense of purpose, and how in control you feel.


Connect

Day 1

Make time each day to Connect. Connect with the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. By staying connected and nurturing these relationships we feel happier and more secure, giving us a better sense of purpose.

Keep Learning

Day 2

What have you learned today?   The human brain has a great capacity for absorbing new information, learning new skills and generating new thoughts and ideas.   A sense of achievement, a sense of pride, or just a sense of "hey, that's good to know" should never be underestimated for its power to make us feel great.   It really doesn't have to be a monumental thing like an academic qualification, or becoming fluent in a new language.  Learning something new every day could be as simple as identifying an unfamiliar  tree from its leaves, or looking up a new word in the dictionary.   Whatever you choose to learn, from watching a documentary on TV, to picking up a seed catalogue and learning the names of some plants for your garden, or even memorising a new joke to tell a friend, embrace the learning process! 

Take Notice

Day 3

Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Be Curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends. Pay attention to the present moment – to your thoughts, feelings and to the world around you.

Give

 Day 4

Giving doesn't necessarily mean money or tangible gifts. A smile, a friendly word, a text or phone call to someone to let them know you're there could make a real difference. Do you have a particular skill or talent that could benefit someone else? Whether volunteering with a charity or organisation, or helping out a friend or neighbour, a thoughtful gift of time and effort is a blessing beyond any monetary value. And the best bit? People who give and share what they have with others, are proven to be happier and healthier. Giving is the ultimate win-win!!









Be Active

Day 5

Look for ways to be active everyday. Go for a walk or a run. Step outside. Cycle, play a game, garden or dance. Discover a physical acitivity you enjoy which suits your lifestyle and level of mobility and fitness. Research has shown being physically active can improve your mental health and wellbeing.
