Week 1
The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a set of evidence-based actions which promote people’s wellbeing. A set of simple things you can do in every day lives.

  • Connect
  • Be Active
  • Take Notice
  • Keep Learning
  • Give

Week 2
Laughter yoga is a new twist on an ancient practice. Not only does it help increase happiness, but it can also help strengthen the immune system, reduce pain and lowers stress. It triggers the release of endorphins, promoting an overall sense of well-being.

Week 3
Have a go at seated exercise; ‘an exercise option for all ages’. This helps towards improving functional ability and strength.

Week 4
Take part in a cookery class. Quick, simple and healthy nutritious ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Helping to understand the nutrients our bodies require and how foods, supplements and lifestyle changes might fulfil those requirements. You will get a chance to have a taste too.
