Best For You


We’ve talked about the five ways to wellbeing before, and linked to some of the evidence for them. Now, Good Thinking (a campaign that’s made a range of resources to help Londoners improve their mental wellbeing) have made posters about them. The posters are designed to give young people ideas of things they can do for each of the five ways to wellbeing.

A summary of the five ways to wellbeing (connect, move, learn, give, and focus).

Connect

A poster giving young people ideas of how they could connect with others, for example, watching a sports team with other fans, getting involved in a community group, sharing cooking on social media, or sharing a Spotify playlist with friends.

 

Move

A poster showing ways young people can move for their wellbeing. For example, taking part in a Parkrun, running errands for a neighbour or friend, walking around a food marker, or finding an online game that encourages activity.

 

Learn

A poster showing ways young people can learn for their wellbeing. For example, trying a new sport, learning a new language through an app, trying a new reipe, or taking part in a (safe) TikTok challenge.

 

 

Give

A poster showing ways young people can give for their wellbeing. For example, volunteering at a local sports club, showing kindness through small acts, donating to a foodbank, or sharing knowledge and skills with others.

Focus (also called ‘take notice’)

A poster showing ways young people can focus for their wellbeing. For example, doign an online yoga class, going for a walk around a neighbourhood and spotting new things, explore local cafes and restaurants, and meditating using an app.

 

You can download all five posters as a PDF or look at them as a PDF on the Good Thinking website.
