Our tips for getting happy

Happy Steps

Moving is good for you. And you don't need to hit the gym or run for miles in the rain to feel the benefits. However you move, as long as you move more, it all counts.

Keep your drinking in check

Regularly drinking beyond recommended amounts can have many, often hidden, effects. Switching alcohol for soft drink alternatives from time to time can boost your physical and mental wellbeing.

Doing Porridge

Making some small changes to your diet can cause a big difference to how you feel. From cutting down on sugar to increasing your fruit and veg, there are many ways you can make a change.

Make a note of this

Songs can really lift your mood. Don't sit there in silence, suffering from annoying noise or dwelling on your worries. Escape into a world of music instead.

Take one away

Eating too much sugary, salty food can really get you down. You don't need to cut it out completely, but cutting back can make a big difference to howe you feel.

Give a little kindness

Doing good feels great. Even small acts of kindness can make a big difference to someone nearby, and help you feel happier and more fulfilled.

Make your happy list

When you’re down it’s easy to forget the good times. The times you’ve succeeded in something, happy times with friends and family, things that make you smile.

So remember them.

Each evening, sit down and write down three things that you, have enjoyed, felt was a job well done or helped you feel close to someone else.

After a few days, you’ll have a list of great things that you can look back on, and this will help you feel a lot better.
