What is World Wellbeing week? World WellBeing Week runs from 21st-30th June 2021 providing the opportunity for people worldwide to promote an overall awareness for the wide-ranging aspects of wellbeing, including social, physical, emotional, financial, career, community and environmental wellbeing.

What does wellbeing mean to you?  Happiness, health, family time, alone time, security, relaxation, exhilaration, inspiration, peace of mind, a good book.

As part of world wellbeing week, LifeTime will be promoting the 5 ways to wellbeing and how you can get involved:

  1. Connect

It’s important to build good relationships for your mental wellbeing, build a sense of belonging, self-worth and give you an opportunity to share positive experiences whilst providing emotional support and allowing you to support others.

Here at LifeTime we have many classes that can help you to stay connected with:

  • Social Groups
  • Quizzes
  • Art & Craft Classes
  • Film shows
  • Games Mornings
  1. Be active

Being active is not only great for your physical health and fitness. Evidence also shows it can also improve your mental wellbeing by raising your self-esteem, helping you to set goals, challenges and achieving them, causing chemical changes in your brain which can help to positively change your mood.

Here at LifeTime we have many classes that can help you to keep active:

  • Zumba/Virtual Zumba
  • Virtual Yoga
  • Aerobics
  • Fit ‘n’ Fun sessions
  • Dance/Virtual Dance
  • Virtual Mindfulness
  1. Take notice

Reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden awareness. Studies have shown that being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your well-being and savoring ‘the moment’ can help to reaffirm your life priorities. Heightened awareness also enhances your self-understanding and allows you to make positive choices based on your own values and motivations.

4. Learn

Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life. The opportunity to engage in work or educational activities particularly helps to lift older people out of depression. The practice of setting goals, which is related to adult learning in particular, has been strongly associated with higher levels of wellbeing.

Here at LifeTime we have many classes that can help you to keep learning:

  • Camera Club
  • IT Sessions
  • Virtual Discover Drawing on Facebook
