Well, our aim was to 'connect' with as many people as possible today through the #5ways to Wellbeing campaign.

The response has been amazing. Thank you Bendigo!

Our staff were run off their feet delivering more than 3000 cookies to over 50 businesses and community organisations across the city.

The cookies carried wellbeing messages and encouraged people to take time out to spend some time together.

It's all about raising awareness of the importance of health and wellbeing in daily life and no matter how busy you are taking time out for yourself.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our #5ways cookie giveaway.

It's been a huge thrill for us and we hope you enjoyed it too.

Check out some of the great cookie pictures from today

#5ways to Wellbeing Week recap

Have you missed all the action from the #5ways to Wellbeing Week so far. Here's a recap.

It's all been about reminding the community that good mental health is essential to living a happy and healthy life.

It’s about how you are feeling and dealing with daily life.

Monday's theme was Take Notice and we made some great videos recognising people doing positive things in the community to make a difference. To check them out click here

Tuesday's theme was Grati-Tuesday and we encouraged businesses and organisations to hold a morning teas to talk about wellbeing. See the results on our Facebook page

Wednesday's theme was learning and the team from Smiling Mind travelled to Bendigo to host workshops for teachers and businesses about the power of mindfulness.

Today was all about 'connect' and free cookies with the grand finale tomorrow being a 'be active' kidz party from 4pm to 6pm at our kidzspace hub in Kangaroo Flat.

What a week!
