Five ways to improve personal wellbeing

InterHigh are raising awareness for wellbeing this September!

If you’re not sure what exactly wellbeing is, it’s the state of feeling healthy, happy and comfortable. It also includes just generally feeling good!

Here are our top tips to boost your wellbeing. If you can give them a try, you might feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life:

Be active

Keeping active is a great way to boost your wellbeing! Whether you’re interested in finding a team sport you enjoy or love running in the outdoors, discover something you enjoy and make it a part of your day-to-day life.

Give to others

Whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a compliment, the smallest act can give you and others a boost. If you fancy doing a bit more, you could volunteer at your local community centre, which could help improve your mental wellbeing and help to build new social networks.

Connect

Social interaction is an important part of improving your wellbeing. Connect with family, friends, colleagues and even your neighbours. Spending time developing these relationships can really enhance your wellbeing as well as those around you.

Embrace mindfulness

Increase your awareness of the present moment, including your feelings, thoughts, body and the world that surrounds you. Becoming more mindful can have a positive effect on the way you feel about life and how you approach different challenges.

Continue to learn

Expanding your knowledge and learning new things can give you a real sense of achievement and newfound confidence. Learn to play a musical instrument, study a new language or sign up for that art class!
