Link4Life has signed up to the Five Ways to Wellbeing campaign to improve everyone’s wellbeing across the borough of Rochdale.
‘Feeling good’ is an important part of being healthy and Five Ways to Wellbeing encourages five simple actions that can be adopted and built into daily routines that have been proved to help achieve this contributing not only to good physical health but, just as important, mental health and wellbeing as well.
with the people around you – with family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.
Exercising makes you feel good. Discover a physical activity you enjoy and one that suits your level of mobility and fitness. Being more active is now proven to be a key part of long term good health.
Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Be curious. Remark on the unusual. Savour the moment. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.
Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.
Do something for a friend. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Linking in to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections to the people around you.
