Wellbeing

 

Hello and welcome to the Alma Park Wellbeing page.

Alma Park staff are working together to share fun learning resources and activities to help promote our Alma Park families mental health and wellbeing. 

Five ways to wellbeing

Evidence suggests there are 5 steps you can take to improve your mental health and wellbeing. Trying these things could help you feel more positive and able to get the most out of life. Each week there will be a new activity (in red) for you to try at home. 

Connect

It’s clear that social relationships are critical for promoting wellbeing and for acting as a buffer against mental ill health for people of all ages.

With this in mind, try to do something different today and make a connection.

  • Talk to someone instead of sending an email.

Be active

Regular physical activity is associated with lower rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups.

Today, why not get physical?

Take notice

Studies have shown that being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your wellbeing and savouring ‘the moment’ can help to reaffirm your life priorities.

  • Today, why not take some time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you.

Learn

Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life.

Today, why not learn something new?

Please have a look at our French page in the curriculum tab.

 Give

Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy.

Research into actions for promoting happiness has shown that committing an act of kindness once a week over a six-week period is associated with an increase in wellbeing.

  • Today, why not show someone you live with a random act of kindness.
