It's easy to get wrapped up in our own concerns. When we help others we connect with something bigger than ourselves, and see our own issues in a different light.
Physical activity is great for our bodies and our minds. The more we can find ways to enjoy it, the more likely it is we'll keep moving and feel good.
Making new contacts is a surefire way to bring something different into our lives.
Loneliness can be as bad for us as smoking, high blood pressure or obesity. The more we invest in our relationships with family and friends the better our chances to live longer, healthier, happier lives.
Sometimes we are the ones in the best position to help ourselves. Recognising those moments, and taking responsibility for acting on them, is a gift to ourselves and to others.
Winding down from time to time is vital for the health of our bodies and our minds. When we relax we sleep better, we think differently and we restore our physical energies. Practices than connect us with nature are increasingly recognised for their role in helping us unwind.
Thinking positively is not about imagining everything is great when it's not. The way we look at the world not only affects how we feel, but plays a powerful role in what actually happens in our lives. Bringing positivity and openness creates possibilities, and it is a habit we can choose to grow.
