Learn new ways to wellbeing

This month at the Happiness Hub, we'll be encouraging you to try something new!

Learning something new or getting involved in an activity that really absorbs and interests us is great for our well-being. Keeping our brains active is not only good for us physically but it can help you feel you are flourishing as you see yourself making progress with a new skill.

Having fun and trying new things is important, AND remembering that it's OK not to get it right the first time - change "I can't do it", into "I can't do it...yet!" This month's calendar is full of ideas to help you decide what to try next.

Even if you feel like you do not have enough time, or you may not need to learn new things, there are lots of different ways to bring learning into your life.

Some of the things you could try include:

  • Try learning to cook something new. Find out about healthy eating and cooking tips

  • Try taking on a new responsibility at work, such as mentoring a junior staff member or improving your presentation skills

  • Work on a DIY project, such as fixing a broken bike, garden gate or something bigger. There are lots of free video tutorials online

  • Consider signing up for a course at a local college. You could try learning a new language or a practical skill such as plumbing

  • Try new hobbies that challenge you, such as writing a blog, taking up a new sport or learning to paint

But don't feel you have to learn new qualifications or sit exams if this does not interest you. It's best to find activities you enjoy and make them a part of your life.


Here's how you can get involved and make a difference:
