Doing good does you good! - Evidence shows that helping others can have a positive effect on your own mental health

Did you know that acts of kindness can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing?

Not sure where to start?

We’ve put together some suggestions to help you out:

• Call a friend that you haven’t spoken to for a while
• Send flowers to a friend out of the blue
• Remember to say hi to colleagues and ask how they are
• Smile and say hello to people you may pass every day, but have never spoken to before

 

It’s important to remember yourself too.
Be kind to yourself:

• Prioritise some “me” time so you can relax and reflect.
• Do something you enjoy like listening to a favourite song or piece of music
