Taking part in activities, learning relaxation techniques, new recipes and eating healthier and better foods can help boost your mood and improve your overall emotional and physical wellbeing.

The '5 ways to wellbeing' looks at the five things you can do to feel healthier and happier.


  • Connect – say hello to your neighbour, keep in touch with people

  • Be active – do the garden or make time for a walk

  • Take notice – stimulate your senses: listen to music or watch a film

  • Keep learning – try something new or rediscover an old interest

  • Give – hold the door open, smile and give compliments

Wirral Community NHS Trust has a range of activities that will support you to feel better and make positive lifestyle choices and build the '5 ways to wellbeing' into your daily routine.

"I have never looked back. My confidence has grown, I have met new friends and I regularly run 5K races. I have to admit I was nervous about turning up but now I don't know why. Attending these sessions changed my life."
