Make a wellbeing plan
If you come to the Let's Chat bus, we can help you make a wellbeing plan. This will help you and others understand what is important to keep you healthy, well, and independent. The plan focuses on eight steps to wellbeing:
- be active
- take notice
- give something to others
- learn something new
- hydration for wellbeing
- sleep for wellbeing
- hope for the future
