What keeps you well and makes you smile? Take a photo and send it to us and you could win some great prizes!

Sometimes we don’t feel great or able to cope when things get difficult but the good news is there are 5 simple steps which you can take to improve things when you are not feeling your best.

Research by the New Economics Foundation (2008) shows there are 5 things which can significantly improve your mental wellbeing. These include connecting to people, learning new skills, being active, taking notice of your surroundings and giving something back to your community.

They are known as Connect, Keep Learning, Be Active, Take Notice and Give.

Many of us are already doing the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and we really want to see what keeps you well in Torbay and South Devon. You can do this by sharing your wellbeing image by using the hashtag #MyWayToWellbeing

If you would like a chance to enter our competition then please send your photo to 5Ways@torbay.gov.uk. Your image could also become part of our Torbay and South Devon 5 Ways to Wellbeing campaign*. Please see the competition terms and conditions.
