Five ways to well-being
Hey there Boot Campers!
Recent research conducted identified 5 effective ways of maintaining or improving emotional well-being. What could you do more of to improve your happiness?
Feeling close to and being valued by others is a basic human need. Having at least four close, rewarding relationships promotes emotional well-being. Having a larger number of more casual relationships builds connectedness within the broader community. Therefore you should be bringing ALL your family members, friends, colleagues and acquaintances to Boot Camp!
People who are physically active are less likely to experience anxiety and depression. Being physically active helps build self-confidence and our sense of mastery. Come join us at Boot Camp for FUN and interactive workouts – keep the “old” friends, and make NEW ones!
Self-awareness is the key to making choices based on what is really important to us, and to maintaining good relationships with others. Appreciating a beautiful sunrise or the laughter of a small child generates more positive emotions to counterbalance the negative. We have plenty of laughter AND sunshine and sunrises at Boot Camp… Why don’t you come and have a look?
Life-long learning builds self-confidence and social networks. Learning helps keep your mind active and sharp. Stretch and challenge your mind - remember that you grow old when you stop learning! Why not subscribe to our FREE Wellness Program and then embark on a journey of lifelong learning and discovery?
Helping others, volunteering, and working in groups are associated with an increased sense of self-worth and positive feelings like happiness and life satisfaction. Giving has a greater impact on well-being than receiving. At Boot Camp we support and volunteer for plenty of charity organisations, we believe in giving back – join us on one of our charity drives or suggest one that the rest of us can participate in!
If you haven’t joined us yet, why not claim your 5 FREE sessions and SEE and FEEL for yourself what fun being active and healthy can be???
