Wellbeing is based on our self-belief and self-esteem. When we like ourselves, we are far more likely to be kinder and more understanding when interacting with others.
“Hello. How are you?”
This question will never go out of fashion if genuinely meant.
I was interested to find the following 5 steps to mental wellbeing on the NHS website which then referenced the MIND website:
- Connect with other people – Stay connected with friends and family. Share your concerns with people you trust and by doing so you may well be of help to them.
- Be physically active – Research continues to demonstrate that keeping active has significant benefits for both our physical and mental wellbeing.
- Learn new skills – When we learn a new skill it boosts self-confidence and raises our self-esteem.
- Support and help others – In helping someone else you benefit too. Try to be a little more understanding of other’s concerns, worries or behaviours during this particular time.
- Pay attention to the present moment (mindfulness) – Focus on the present and do things you enjoy.
