Taking time to strengthen and broaden relationships is good for your wellbeing, and good for the wellbeing of the other people involved. Building relationships for wellbeing means:
There are many ways to build stronger and closer relationships:
- Make time each day to spend with your family.
- Arrange a day out with friends you haven't seen for a while.
- Switch off the TV tonight and play a game with the children, or just talk.
- Speak to someone new today.
- Have lunch with a colleague.
- Visit a friend or family member who needs support or company.
- Volunteer at a local school, hospital or community group. This is also a "way of time" that is fixed each day, or time that you find around other commitments, giving your time.
- Learn to cook a favourite dish that you’ve never eaten at home.
- Visit a gallery or museum and learn about a person or period in history that interests you.
- Take on a new responsibility at work, such as learning to use an IT system or understanding the monthly reports.
- Fix that broken bike or garden gate. Once you’ve done that, how about setting yourself a bigger DIY project?
- Sign up for a course you’ve been meaning to do at a local night school. You might learn a new language, or try something practical such as plumbing.
- Rediscover an old hobby that challenges you, whether it's making model aeroplanes, writing stories, sewing or knitting.
Today, you could:
- Say thank you to someone, for something they’ve done for you.
- Phone a relative or friend who needs support or company.
- Ask a colleague how they are and really listen to the answer.
- Offer to lend a hand if you see a stranger struggling with bags or a pushchair.
- This week, you could:
- Arrange a day out for you and a friend or relative.
- Offer to help a relative with DIY or a colleague with a work project.
- Sign up to a mentoring project, in which you give time and support to someone who will benefit from it.
- Volunteer in your local community. That might mean helping out at a local school, hospital or care home.
