Why Well for Winter?

The cold months ahead can mean a drop in physical and mental health for many people. Well For Winter aims to inspire everyone to take steps towards improving wellbeing, keeping positive and supporting each other when they need a boost.


Principles of Well for Winter

Guided by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing – with the addition of ‘Get Organised’ – it’s all about creating a plan personal to you. Being well for winter means different things to different people. Writing goals down and sharing with others means it’s more likely to happen.


How to get started

Connect with schools, workplaces and wider communities to promote good habits throughout the winter months.
