Throughout the #Give Yourself A Gift Campaign we’ve highlighted why taking some time for ourselves every day is a priority – it strengthens our mental health and well-being, enabling us to engage fully with work and home-life.
It’s often the small stuff that brings the biggest returns, as we saw with the characters Chelsie, Maggie and Sandra. They all tapped into the 5 ways of well-being – connecting, learning, staying active, noticing (being in the moment) and giving. Here’s some of their top tips:
They’re not costly are they? The cost comes when we don’t do them. When we engage in the 5 ways of well-being, the returns can be massive.
The festive period is almost upon us, a time to reflect, refresh and re-energise. Me, I’m hoping to master the art of the yo-yo, obviously after some ups and downs! It should be a laugh and give me some peaceful, in-the-moment minutes every day. A yo-yo can be a present after all, that helps us to stay – in the present.
How will you continue to Give Yourself A Gift every day over the holidays? Let us know.
…and one more thing to look forward to, a specific gift for yourself in the new year, a free 1 hour webinar:
Confidence in Supportive Conversations, 13th January at noon. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
Happy Festive and hope to see you there!

Why saying ‘Ski and Do’ makes the difference
The last time I’d skied abroad with my sister was just before the pandemic turned our world upside down – two whole years ago. This year, we were up for it big time and we weren’t disappointed. The snow was magic and the warm sun shone out of the radiant blue sky every single day. Let me […]
