Five ways to live better and longer

  • I am part of a community: Connecting with other people is a cornerstone of a good life. Create and establish connections at home, work, school and in your local community. Share your joys and sorrows with others daily – a trouble shared is a trouble halved, and a joy shared is a joy doubled! It is important to put time and effort into building and maintaining good interpersonal relations every day.
  • I enjoy exercise: Step outside to get some fresh air, go for a walk or cycle with a friend. Do a dance, enjoy a game with friends, or take a deep dive. Find a physical activity that suits you best, and enjoy the great feeling it gives you.
  • I live in the moment: Be curious – experience the world with all your senses. Notice the changing seasons, the sunset and the flora and fauna all around you. Live in the moment, wherever you are. Be aware of your feelings and learn to live with them. Share your experiences with others.
  • I keep learning: Try something new – it’s never too late! Knit, fix something, learn to play an instrument or cook. Rediscover an old interest or do something new with your hands. Set a challenge, and enjoy fulfilling it. Learning new things is refreshing and makes you more confident.
  • I spread the good around: A smile and a thank-you will brighten up anyone’s day. Do something nice for a friend or a stranger. Devote some time to friends or to volunteer work. Look around you: good deeds increase happiness, both for others and for yourself.
