#5W2WChallenge – Week 1 – Connect

By October 1, 2017October 25th, 2017No Comments

Today is the first day of our 5 Ways to Wellbeing Challenge- #5W2WChallenge.

If you’re one of the people who has signed up to our challenge- thank you. I hope you enjoy taking part. If you’ve not signed up yet, it’s not too late. But if you want to get our emails through the month with ideas and tips, you need to sign up via our website here.

The first of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing is connect. There is strong evidence that relationships with other people are a fundamental human need and one that contributes to functioning well in the world. Social relationships- whether that’s with friends, family, neighbours or work colleagues- are important for promoting wellbeing and positive mental health for everyone.

With this in mind, try to do something different this week and make a connection.

  • Talk to someone instead of sending an email
  • Give an old friend a call
  • Put five minutes aside to talk to a neighbour
  • Give a colleague a lift to work or share the journey home with them.

Good Luck!
