The popular ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ booklet has been adapted and updated to be directly relevant during the coronavirus pandemic. Peer Support Worker, Marie Ash, made the changes and considered how the ‘five ways’ could be applied by someone who was having to live differently.
Talking about her approach, Marie said: “Knowing the benefit that the Five Ways to Wellbeing are for our mental and physical wellbeing, I thought that there may be many who will be shielding, self-isolating or working from home that could benefit from them.
“As a Peer Support Worker, I used the experience of myself and others’ experiences to form the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing in Isolation’ booklet, adapted from the original to be relevant to our current situation. The aim is that it will continue to be a source of support as many people find themselves isolated. It was compiled with love and I hope it will be very helpful.”
Copies of the booklet will soon be distributed and it can be downloaded here.
