Explore Your Way to Mental Well-Being
12 Nov 2020
Where do you go to unwind? What are the activities that help you breathe deeply and rediscover mental well-being?
Identifying the places and activities that help us find our way to mental well-being is valuable for ongoing health and wellness. 2020 is a challenging year as we learn to live with the uncertainties that Covid-19 presents.
This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, 21 - 27 September, encourages us to Reimagine Well-being Together - He Tirohagana Anamata.
Undertaking regular activities that benefit our mental health can make a real difference. Some of us can pinpoint a favourite location or activity where we get away from it all – the gym, the top of a mountain, a stroll on the beach or a walk around your neighbourhood. Studies show that getting out for a walk can have a profoundly positive impact on mental health. But there are also things you can do at home, such as a daily yoga session or a few minutes meditating. Never tried it before? Giving something new a go can lift your mood.
