The Act-Belong-Commit guidelines
for positive mental health provide a simple approach that we can adopt to become more mentally healthy:
Keep mentally, physically, socially and spiritually active: take a walk, say g’day, read a book, do a crossword, dance, play cards, stop for a chat...
Join a book club, take a cooking class, be more involved in groups you are already a member of, go along to community events...
Take up a cause, help a neighbour, learn something new, take on a challenge, volunteer...
Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health.
