As today is World Mental Health Day, this year the theme is "Make mental health and well-being for all a global priority".

Here are Five Ways to Well-being which are simple actions to practice each day to maintain or improve our mental health and well-being. Each action can make a positive difference in your life because small improvements in well-being can increase our ability to lead a more fulfilling life.

Talk and Stay Connected:

Good relationships are important for your mental well-being. They can:

  • help you to build a sense of belonging and self-worth

  • give you an opportunity to share positive experiences

  • provide emotional support and allow you to support others

Be Active:

Being active is not only great for your physical health and fitness. Evidence also shows it can also improve your mental well-being by:

  • raising your self-esteem

  • helping you to set goals or challenges and achieve them

  • causing chemical changes in your brain which can help to positively change your mood

Learn New Skills:

Research shows that learning new skills can also improve your mental well-being by:

  • boosting self-confidence and raising self-esteem

  • helping you to build a sense of purpose

  • helping you to connect with others

Even if you feel like you do not have enough time, or you may not need to learn new things, there are lots of different ways to bring learning into your life.

Pay Attention To The Present Moment (MINDFULNESS)

Paying more attention to the present moment can improve your mental well-being. This includes your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.

Some people call this awareness "mindfulness". Mindfulness can help you enjoy life more and understand yourself better. It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges.

Start a Gratitude Journal

Make it a priority to actively and deliberately focus on the positive to avoid being overwhelmed by daily stressors. One way to focus on the good in life is to write down positive thoughts and notes about what you are grateful for. It can help to change your mind frame and how you think, act and talk.
