5 Ways to Wellbeing
The Five Ways were created as a result of the New Economics foundations (NEF) Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing research report.
NEF conducted a review of the most up-to-date evidence and found that building five actions into day-to-day lives s important for the wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and organisations.
The fives actions are:
- Connect, me whakawhanaunga
- Give, tukua
- Take Notice, me aro tonu
- Keep Learning, me ako tonu
- Be active, me kori tonu
It sounds too simple – right? But therein lies the beauty of it. You can introduce any of these evidence based actions into your life, anytime, and you will begin to feel the benefits.
