Five Ways to Wellbeing Part 5: Give

1 May 2020

These are certainly difficult times. Incomes have been reduced and for some even putting food on the table is a struggle. So, for me to say it’s a great time to increase giving may seem somewhat insensitive. Giving is one of the five ways to mental wellbeing promoted by Lancashire Mind and there really is no better time to give.

Five Ways to Wellbeing Part 4: Take Notice

24 April 2020

I quite often hear the phrase  ‘you haven’t listened to a word I’ve said’ and it’s true, I probably haven’t. This is not because I find the subject matter boring or that I’m being deliberately rude. The fact is I’m trundling on in a world of my own. Sadly I haven’t been blessed with a great attention span so my ability to notice things around me is somewhat limited.

Five Ways to Wellbeing Part 3: Keep Learning

17 April 2020

When will you ever learn? I’ve certainly heard that from my parents a few times over the years and often with good reason. To answer the question - now would be a good time to learn. In fact as we are all locked down at the moment there’s probably no better time to learn and as learning is one of the five ways to mental wellbeing it really can be a win win.

Five Ways to Wellbeing Part 2: Connect

14 April 2020

So how’s the lockdown going?  For me, my Welsh lessons are painfully slow, my guitar playing sounds like a cat being strangled, my one call out as an NHS volunteer was a false alarm and my bottom still hurts from riding my bike! So pretty well all in all.
