5 Ways to Wellbeing
Time and time again, scientific studies have shown us that if we do the following five things listed below, happiness will increase.
- Be Active
- Keep learning
- Help others
- Taking notice
We can all make active and deliberate choices about changing the state in which we find ourselves. We just need to begin. Below are some top tactics for implementing these five things in your life, right now.
Each person you meet is a doorway into another world. Building solid and varied social connections in your life can increase your feelings of happiness and self-worth.
- Every mate you have started out as ‘someone you didn’t know’. Strike up some chat with someone you’ve often wondered about saying ‘hello!’ to. They might be a total legend.
- Message a friend. It doesn’t matter what it says, people appreciate it when you think of them.
2. Be Active
Let’s not get it twisted – what you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing. Gym not your vibe? There are loads of ways to stay active whilst enjoying life.
3. Keep Learning
A comfort zone is a cool place but nothing ever grows there. Step out of the comfort zone. You will learn things you never knew that you never knew.
Go online and check out TED for thousands of short, powerful talks delivered by world’s leading thinkers and doers. Watch one talk on a topic that interests you.
4. Help Others
Whether it’s giving a mate a hand, throwing your weight in behind a cause that matters or just supporting other people in some way. Giving is like gold-dust for our mental wellbeing.
5. Take Notice
Happiness is often right in front of your eyes – more than enough to be happy right now. You don’t have to run into the future in order to get more.
To understand how to feel your best, we first need to unpick two distinctive states – pleasure and happiness.
