Mental wellbeing is not an exact science and can feel and be different across individuals but the essential steps to wellbeing consist of having good relationships, physical activity, learning new skills, having a feeling of purpose and mindfulness in your everyday life.
Connecting with other people, not just on social media platforms. Good healthy relationships are important for wellbeing as they give you a sense of purpose and belonging, sharing your day to day and receiving or giving emotional support. Therefore, establishing and strengthening these relationships by allowing time to spend with friends and family. Engaging with them fully rather than the use of divisionary aids like tv and game consoles. If you are unable to do this face to face using video chat apps to keep the contact is recommended. Have a look at our courses around life coaching.
Physical Activity and Wellbeing
Evidence shows that physical activity can increase not only your physical wellbeing but also your emotional wellbeing. You could find an exercise that is team based where you could connect with other people at the same time. Or maybe a yoga course where you could combine physical activity with mindfulness.

Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment. It is easy to be distracted by technology, demands on our time that we can miss very important things that are happening around us. Paying attention to the present moment can aid our wellbeing, by making us more aware of our thoughts and feelings and the world and people around us. By understanding the moment, it can change the way you feel about life and could positively change the way you approach things. Please see our accredited mindfulness course to learn techniques that you can adopt.
