Give back or volunteer
Altruism is a wonderful way to look after your wellbeing. Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Allow yourself time to recognise how your role gives something back to your community.
Research into actions for promoting happiness has shown that committing an act of kindness once a week over a six-week period is associated with an increase in wellbeing.
