The 8 Steps to Wellbeing Plan has been developed to help Walsall residents to understand what they can do to enhance, maintain or improve their mental wellbeing. They are:
- Be Active
- Take Notice
- Give something to others
- Learn something new
- Hydration and nutrition
- Sleep for wellbeing
- Hope for the future
Spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. For example, doing things like growing food or flowers, exercising outdoors or being around animals can have lots of positive effects.
