Kindness and Giving

Research suggests that acts of giving and kindness can help improve your mental wellbeing by:


  • creating positive feelings and a sense of reward
  • giving you a feeling of purpose and self-worth
  • helping you connect with other people

A few ideas below:

  • Saying thank you to show appreciation for what others do for you
  • Ask 'How Are You?' and really listen to the response
  • Spend time with someone who needs support or company
  • Volunteer in your community whether that be at a club, school, community centre, care home, etc.
  • Get involved with a charity, through participating in sponsored activities, donating, giving time and using your skills.
