The nationally recognised 5 ways to wellbeing are
3. Be active
4. Keep learning
5. Take notice
These were recognised in research done by the New Economics Foundation as the top 5 ways to keep oneself in good emotional and mental health.
Working with the principles of co production ( collaborative not directive strength based approach) the renew space encourages anyone who attends to set goals around these 5 ways to well being.
We believe we are all on a sliding scale of mental well being and ill health due to the pressures of life. Thus these wellbeing practices would benefit us all.
