Connect with the people around you. With family, friends, neighbours and colleagues. At home, work or in your local community. Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich your every day.

Ideas to Connect:

  • Make time each day to spend with your family – maybe to play a game with the children, or just talk
  • Talk to someone instead of sending an email
  • Arrange a day out with friends you haven’t seen for a while
  • Text a friend out of the blue
  • Speak to someone new today
  • Visit a friend or family member who needs support or company – and listen to them
  • Volunteer at a local school, hospital or community group
