Latest: Read about Five Ways to Wellbeing during the Coronavirus crisis.
The New Economics Foundation has developed a set of five evidence-based actions for a major new government report into wellbeing that, if practised regularly, can improve personal wellbeing.
In the midst of the credit crunch, growing economic uncertainty and accelerating climate change, the recommended actions, based on extensive research compiled by NEF for the Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing, show that wellbeing does not depend on spending money or consuming more.
We produced five postcards — one for each of the five ways to wellbeing.
Read the original report.
Download the postcards.
