5 to Thrive is all about making small changes can make a big difference to the way you feel
In City and Hackney we’ve taken the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, a set of five things that people can do to improve and support their mental health and wellbeing, and created 5 to Thrive - a series of events and resources that anyone can take use and take part in.
Whether it’s learning mindfulness, joining a free exercise class, reconnecting with your neighbours, or finding out more about volunteering and mentoring, 5 to Thrive is here to help you get the most out of what’s available locally.
What are the Five Ways of Wellbeing?
The Five Ways to Wellbeing were developed by think tank New Economics Foundation (NEF) from evidence gathered by the UK government’s Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing, which drew on evidence about mental wellbeing throughout life. The Five Ways have been used by health organisations, schools and community projects across the UK and around the world to help people take action to improve their wellbeing.
