The Five Ways to Wellbeing, this Mental Health Awareness Week, Sep 18-24, 2023

The Five Ways to Wellbeing

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a quintet of straightforward but effective actions that you can adopt daily to help you maintain equilibrium, cultivate resilience, and enhance your wellbeing. These practices are grounded in research and can be effortlessly woven into the fabric of anyone's life, regardless of their circumstances.

OBSERVE AND APPRECIATE / ME ARO TONU

Embrace the art of observation, paying attention to the world around you. Take delight in the simple things that bring you happiness - me aro tonu ki ngā mea māmā noa i ngākau harikoa ai koe.

GIVE GENEROUSLY / TUKUA

Offer your time, your words, and your presence; generously share these gifts with others - tukua te wā ki a koe, ō kupu, ko koe tonu.

PROMOTE ACTIVITY / ME KORI TONU

Stay active, and do what's within your power. Relish what you do - kia pārekareka tāu i whai ai, and let your actions influence your mood for the better - kia pai ake ō piropiro.

FOSTER CONNECTIONS / ME WHAKAWHANAUNGA

Create connections, engage in conversation, and listen actively - me kōrero, me whakarongo. Be present in these moments - me whakawātea i a koe. Nurture these connections and experience the sense of belonging - me rongo i te whanaungatanga.

EMBRACE LEARNING / ME AKO TONU

Commit to lifelong learning, embracing new experiences - awhitia te wheako hou. Be open to fresh opportunities - kimihia ngā ara hou. Surprise yourself by pushing your boundaries - me ohorere koe i a koe anō.

Remember, during mental health awareness week, motivational speakers and mental health advocates will delve deeper into these practices, offering strategies and insights on how you can integrate these principles into your daily life.
