5 Ways to Great Wellbeing

Research tells us these five simple ways can make a big difference to our happiness and help build our confidence and resilience.

It’s a bit like the well-being equivalent to ‘five fruit and vegetables a day’. Go on, try and build these simple actions into everyday life!


   1.  Connect


• Take time to talk about feelings and listen

• Talk about your day at mealtimes with your family

• Find activities you can enjoy together as a family

• Encourage yourself to see friends outside of school rather than by phone or online


   2.  Be active


• Go for a walk, run, skip, cycle, swim, dance – whatever you enjoy, indoors or outdoors

• Find a local group sport or activity you can join

• Exercise is a mood booster and a great way to feel good


   3.  Take notice 


 • Go to a park, woodland, the seaside or even a different part of Basingstoke so you can enjoy different environments in our diverse town.

• Notice how you are feeling and how you can process your emotions in a positive way


   4.  Keep learning


• Learning isn’t just for school. Read read ‘just for fun’

• Get your parents/carers to pass on skills like cooking, sewing, model making, photography and DIY so you learn some valuable life skills


   5.  Give


• Be kind, share and show interest in others

• Do something nice for a friend, family member or charity
