Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace


The '5 Ways to Wellbeing' publication by the New Economics Foundation identifies five steps that can be built into daily lives to improve wellbeing.

Connect

With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Think of
these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them.
Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.


Be active

Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance.
Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical
activity you enjoy and that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

Try Different Techniques

There are some many options available that can help you to improve you health and well being. For many it will be the uncommon techniques that work the best for them.

A current growing trend is acupuncture treatment. This trend has started in Brighton where there is a growing demand of acupuncture specialists that can help you improve your health and well being.

Take notice

Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the
changing seasons. Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work,
eating lunch or talking to friends. Be aware of the world around you and
what you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you
appreciate what matters to you.

Keep learning

Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course.
Take on a different responsibility at work. Fix a bike. Learn to play an
instrument or how to cook your favourite food. Set a challenge you will enjoy
achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as
being fun.

Give

Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile.
Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in.
Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be
incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.
