Page 2

Today is world mental health day. If you are you struggling to cope or feeling overwhelmed Wirral Community NHS Trust has a range of activities that will support you to feel better and make positive lifestyle choices and build the '5 ways to wellbeing' into your daily routine.

The '5 ways to wellbeing' looks at the five things you can do to feel healthier and happier.

  • Connect – say hello to your neighbour, keep in touch with people
  • Be active – do the garden or make time for a walk
  • Take notice – stimulate your senses: listen to music or watch a film
  • Keep learning – try something new or rediscover an old interest
  • Give – hold the door open, smile and give compliments

From helping people with low confidence, anxiety or mild depression through arts and music based sessions through to increasing physical activity through chair aerobics, circuit training, health walks, men only football, tai chi and yoga.

Taking part in activities, learning relaxation techniques, new recipes and eating healthier and better foods can help boost your mood and improve your overall emotional and physical wellbeing.

If you'd like a bit more support you can get a FREE lifestyle assessment, support and personalised action plans from one of our Health Trainers.
