World Mental Health Day falls on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health and the organisation Mind has stated that this year the message has taken the theme of surviving or thriving, with the focus on why too few of us are thriving with good mental health. Below is a very brief summary on promoting wellbeing.

Day and Bell wish to support this message and to show our commitment to our colleagues' wellbeing we are closing the office at 4.30pm tomorrow.

Five ways to wellbeing:
Connect: Feeling close to, and valued by, other people is a fundamental human need and one that contributes to functioning well in the world. With this in mind, try to do something different today and really make a connection with your colleagues.
Get Physical: Regular physical activity is associated with lower rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups. Whatever your level of fitness, keep moving…
Take notice: reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden awareness. Take some time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you.
Learning: Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life. Join a class or a group to stay in touch, have fun and learn something new.
Give: Participation in social and community life has attracted a lot of attention in the field of wellbeing research. Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy.

We hope you all enjoy your weekend!
