Social Wellness Tips: Research shows there are five simple things you can do as part of your daily life – at work and at home – to build resilience, boost your wellbeing and lower your risk of developing mental health problems.

These simple actions are known internationally as the Five Ways to Wellbeing!

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are – Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give, and Take Notice.

So for July, the official Social Wellness month, Glad Group are talking about the Five Way to wellbeing:

Why the Five Ways work:

  1. Connect:
    Strengthening relationships with others and feeling close to and valued by others, including at work, is critical to boosting wellbeing.
  2. Be Active
    Being physically active, including at work, improves physical health and can improve mood and wellbeing and decrease stress, depression and anxiety.
  1. Take Notice
    Paying more attention to the present moment, to thoughts and feelings and to the world around, boosts our wellbeing.
  2. Keep Learning
    Being curious and seeking out new experiences at work and in life more generally positively stimulates the brain.
  1. Give
    Carrying out acts of kindness, whether small or large, can increase happiness, life satisfaction and general sense of wellbeing.

These five actions are important to include in daily activities to promote positive health and wellbeing. That is why Glad Group strives for an organisational culture that supports these behaviours.
