Evidence suggests there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing. If you give them a try, you may feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life. I’ve chosen 11 treats to try with each of the things that, according to research, boosts our wellbeing.
Try to connect with the people around you. Spend time developing these relationships. Perhaps host a games evening and play (1.) Bingo from Cath Kidston with a (2.) Sushi Platter from Sticks n Sushi.
Take part in a physical activity, such as walking. Get your family involved so you can ‘connect’ as well. Keep cosy with (3.) Tod’s Shearling-Lined Boots from Matches and a (4.) Giant Bobble Beanie from Sweaty Betty.
Learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence. Give a new recipe a go. How about (5.) Nigel Slater’s Christmas Chronicles from Waterstones cooked in a (6.) Signature Round Casserole from Le Creuset.
Give To Others
‘Tis the season of goodwill! Even the smallest act can count, whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word. You may wish create a meaningful card with (7.) Craft Materials from Fielders Art Shop or gift a friend a (8.) Centre Piece from Gardenia.
Be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges. Lift your mood with a (9.) Perfect Peace Scented Candle from Neom or start a mood diary in a (10.) Notebook from Evie Loves Toast.
Sleep! Time for you to doze off with a super luxurious Slip Silk Eye Mask from Net A Porter.
