Most people know what it takes to have a healthy body to keep us living longer. But when it comes to doing things for a healthy mind, it can be a bit hard to know what to do.
So to make it easier to know how to improve your psychological and emotional health, a new website called the 5 Ways To Wellbeing has been created.
The website enables all Victorians to try the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and incorporate them into daily routines at work and home. Founded on extensive international research about individual psychological wellbeing, the key messages of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing are:
- Be Active
- Keep Learning
- Be Aware
- Help Others.
A grant from the Royal Melbourne Hospital Foundation has enabled North West Area Mental Health Service to roll the 5 Ways To Wellbeing strategy out collaboratively into the broader community.
On the 5 Ways website you will find a range of interactive and educational tools and some translated resources for individuals, workplaces, health professionals and organisations. Do the wellbeing quiz and have a look at the 2 minute video below starring Dr Christian Karcher from The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.
Your psychological wellbeing is important, so check out the 5 Ways to Wellbeing website and encourage others to also find out how to have a healthy mind wellbeing.
