Today we finish a special 5 Ways to Wellbeing campaign to get you thinking about looking after yourself and others during these Coronavirus times. It's so important!

Today's 5 Ways to Wellbeing theme:

Give small

GIVE is one of the important models of 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

GIVE refers to helping others, and this will in return enhance our health and wellbeing.

It does not cost anything to do something kind for one another, or to give a hand for a friend.

You can simply thank others, show a smile or wave your hand.

This will give us a sense of belonging and build a healthy rapport with the community.

It all starts with one person… YOU! 

To learn more about Give watch this great little video on the science of kindness by clicking on the 'read more' button below.
