Wellbeing Wednesdays! Activities Masterlist

Hello everyone! 

 

Wellbeing is super important. It can be helpful to take some time out of our day and reflect on some of the things we can or need to do to help ourselves feel better. There's a little wheel of wellbeing called the wheel of wellbeing. 

Each section represents a different way that we can take care of ourselves and our wellbeing. It could be through being active, connecting with others, taking notice of our surroundings and being mindful or learning new things. There's so many different ways that we can help have a positive wellbeing. 

 

So, to help us on that positive journey, we're going to do Wellbeing Wednesdays! Every Wednesday, we're going to share a new wellbeing activity with you all. We'll explain what the activity is, and give an example so you can see what to do. Even though it's posted on a Wednesday, you can reply on a Thursday, a Saturday, or even a week later! There's no time limit on these activities Smiley Happy

 

 

Check out below for a giant list of all the activities we've done in the past and give one a go! Smiley Very Happy
