In this session, we discussed how as women we often neglect ourselves but as women, as mothers, carers, nurturers we need to take care of ourselves first before we can take care of others.
So what does wellbeing mean and how can we achieve this?
The 5 ways to well-being looks at five important ways that we can achieve a better wellbeing for ourselves. Evidence suggests there are 5 steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing. If you give them a try, you may feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life.
1. Connect – connect with the people around you / 2. Be active – you don’t have to go to the gym. Take a walk, go cycling or play a game of football. / 3. Take Notice – Be more aware and mindful / 4. Keep learning – new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence. / 5. Give to others – even the smallest act can count, whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word. We discussed how Muslims can use the same steps to get closer to Allah and the Quran.
