Emotional Well-being

Top 5 tips:

  1. Sit outside every day with a drink for 20-30 mins - This raises your natural serotonin levels, you will feel much better if you do this especially in winter!
  2. Spend some time with people you care about - It doesn't always need to be literally (it could just be a chat with your family via the phone or internet!)
  3. Treat yourself...go on! - maybe sit by the sea/on the moors/in the Quad, visit the gym or read a magazine instead of a work book!
  4. Open your eyes...enjoy our natural world - So often we fail to notice the trees, flowers, sea, sky...it always makes us feel better when we stop and notice!
  5. Share with someone how you feel and listen to their feelings too...friend, family or colleague - It really does help!

Why not try:

  • Identifying someone you know you can talk to about things.
