‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ by NEF – still useful 5 years on

5 Ways to Well Being” – Brilliant postcards – grab a free one here!5 ways to well being part 1

In 2008 Foresight’s Mental Capital and Wellbeing Project examined state-of-the-art research from across the world to consider how to improve everyone’s mental capital and mental well being through life.

The evidence suggests that a small improvement in wellbeing can help decrease some mental health problems and also help people to flourish ..

The weighty report was condensed into a series of postcards of fabulous, bite-sized information by the New Economics Foundation called ‘5 ways to wellbeing'; a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing.

Despite being 5 years old, with significant advances being made in how we view flourishing, I still love these cards and have stuck them up in office kitchens, posted to friends and regularly re-read mine where I’ve popped it above my computer. You can purchase a set directly from NEF here

or if you drop me an email, claiming your freebie ones until my supplies run dry –



Act as if

If you want others to believe in you, then you need to believe in yourself first. ‘Act as if’ is a friendly way of saying “fake it till you make it’, or as social psychologist Amy Cuddy would say “Fake it until you become it”.

Take a look at the power of body language on both your own self confidence and the impact you have on other people. Amy Cuddy speaking on TED lectures outlines how you can use your body language to feel, and to be seen to be, more powerful and more confident then perhaps you currently feel you are.
