You probably know about the kind of things you can do to look after your physical health (even if you don't actually do all of them all of the time!) like eating healthily, taking regular exercise and only drinking alcohol in moderation.
But did you know that there are practical steps that you can take to look after your mental health as well?
You can find out more by taking a wander through our on-line wellbeing garden. In this part of our website you'll find basic advice and information, including interviews with experts.
Many of us would like to be a little happier and just need a few ideas and some encouragement. Well London's DIY Happiness is designed to do just that. It gives people a few tips; some provided by Londoners themselves and others based on 'the science of happiness'. The tips fall under six themes: body, mind, spirit, people, place and planet, to create a circle of happiness!
Much of the information published here has been taken from is taken from Foresight Project Mental Capital and Wellbeing published in October 2008.
The project commissioned the centre for well-being at nef (the new economics foundation) to develop 'five ways to wellbeing': a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing."
