The ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ at Willowbrook.
At Willowbrook the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ are simple things we are doing in class every day to help us all feel happier and more positive. To help us remember the five ways to wellbeing we use:
C… L… A… N… G…
We want to encourage our school community to adopt the five ways to help us all feel good and enjoy our day to day lives. Each of these actions makes a positive difference to how we feel. Being aware of and combining these will make a difference.
A few ideas of how you can implement the five ways at home:
Connect: Keep in touch with family/friends, play games together, listen to music that reminds you of special times, share old photos/memories.
Keep Learning: Watch a new film, read a book, learn a new fact, cook or bake, share a skill, try something different.
Be Active: Walk, dance, jog, create football challenges, play hide and seek, complete jobs around the house, circuit training.
Take Notice: Spend time outside every day, observe nature, try yoga, be creative, look up at the night sky.
Give: Time to relax, help someone with a job, call someone to check they are doing ok.
