Take 5


'Take 5' - Steps to Wellbeing

The Public Health Agency recommend these five simple ways to improve our mental health and wellbeing:

  • Connect - with the people around you, with family, friends, colleagues and neighbours
  • Keep Learning - don’t be afraid to try something new, rediscover an old hobby or sign up for a course
  • Be Active - even a short ten minute walk can improve mental alertness and wellbeing
  • Take Notice - of the things around you. Pay attention to the beauty of nature and reflect on your experiences
  • Give - do something nice for a friend or stranger, thank someone, smile, volunteer your time or consider joining a community group
