Wellbeing is defined by the Dictionary as “the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.”

However, wellbeing is a much wider notion than feeling happiness, it includes other things, such as how content people are with their life a whole, their sense of purpose, and how in control they feel.

Evidence suggests there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing.

Five ways to mental wellbeing
