Looking after your health and wellbeing

13th January 2022

Whether you need support around your mental health, have questions about relationships, need sexual health advice or help around substance use, you will find all of our No Limits Health and wellbeing resources here. 

Top Tips to improve your health and wellbeing

We’ve come up with 5 top tips to help you and anyone you know to improve your mood

1. Get outside

Even if it’s a little chilly, a short, brisk walk can make you feel a lot better. Your beating heart sends signals to your brain releasing the feel good endorphins that help us feel better. If it’s too wet or cold, you could get moving inside. YouTube has some brilliant exercise videos.

2.Get Creative

Do you like to draw or write? Maybe you like to sew, or paint. Try something new to you. Getting creative is good for the mind and achieving things is good for our confidence.

3.Give to others

Whether it’s taking time to listen to someone else or helping with things around the house, giving can help you connect with others and give you a sense of purpose.

4.Talk to someone

Let someone know how you’re feeling. “A problem shared is a problem halved” so the saying goes. It’s good to open up about how we are feeling.

5.Be mindful

Eat an apple, or go outside and look around. Think about what you can taste, what do you hear, feel and smell? Grounding techniques can help us to live in the present instead of worrying about a future event.
