Your health: adopting a healthy lifestyle      

Mental wellbeing

There’s more to good mental health than avoiding mental illness. Mental wellbeing can improve resilience to difficult situations, reduce the risk of depression and strengthen relationships. It can also speed up recovery from illness and lengthen life expectancy.

Guidelines

  • Connect with people
  • Be active
  • Keep learning
  • Give to others
  • Take notice of the present moment
