5 Steps to Wellbeing

Every year in Irleand some 12,000 attempted suicides take place and that Irleand ranks 4th in the world for teen age suicides.  One way of helping tackle this problem is the 5 steps to wellbeing programme.

STep 1. – Connect

Connect with People around you, friends, family, neighbours and colleagues as well as your local community building these connection will support and enrich you every day

Step 2. – Be Active

Go for a walk, run or cycle, do some gardening or go dancing.  Do any form of physical activity that you enjoy and that suits your level of mobility and fitness.


Step 3. – Take Notice

Be curious about the world around you, catch sight of the beautiful.  Notice the changing seasons.  Be aware of the world around and what you are feeling.  Reflect on your experiences.


Step 4. – Keep Learning

Try something new or rediscover an old interest.  Set a challenge for yourself that you will enjoy achieving.  Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun to do.


Step 5. – Give

Do something nice for a stranger.  Thank someone or just smile.  Volunteer your time, or join a community group such as the GAA and get actively involved.  Look outwards as well as inwards.  Seeing yourself and your happiness linked with the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and will create connections with the people around you.
