|Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical activity you enjoy and that suits your level of mobility and fitness.|
|Connect with the people around you – family, friends, colleagues, neighbours. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.|
|Try something new or rediscover an old interest. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun!|
|Volunteer your time, join a community group. This can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with people around you.|
|Be curious, take notice. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.|
