Improving well-being with the Norfolk Community College Project and Access Community Trust

April 26, 2018

Whether you’d like to make better decisions, increase your happiness or change careers, Access Community Trust have teamed up with the Norfolk Community College project to deliver a range of wellbeing activities to set you on the right path.

‘Wellbeing’ means feeling more than just happy and confident, it means feeling able to cope when things get tough in our lives and help your achieve your goals in life.

Access Community Trust’s ‘Eight Week Wellbeing and Mindfulness Course’ provides a range of activities for people with common mental health and emotional issues to help participants to the project work together to improve our mental and physical wellbeing & happiness through mindfulness, yoga therapy, meditation, movement, affirmations, nutrition and belonging’.

Our ‘Eight Week Wellbeing and Mindfulness Course’ is delivered across Norfolk and covers a wide range of topics including;

  • Mindfulness, grounding, breathing, visualisation and meditation techniques to feel calm and in control.
  • Mindful movement to improve wellbeing, through yoga therapy and mindful walking.
  • Understanding how making small positive changes each day can improve our overall & long-term wellbeing.
  • Recognising how hobbies and volunteering help us to: belong, have meaning everyday, meet new people and feel good about ourselves.
  • How nutrition, hydration, sleep, relaxation and movement contribute to positive health and happiness.
  • Working together to achieve a set goal, and feel how reaching that goal contributes positively to our overall wellbeing.
  • Embracing our strengths & identifying our weaknesses (then turning our perceived weaknesses into our superpower).
  • Experiencing how being supported (& supporting others) improves our own wellbeing.
  • Generally and genuinely feeling a little bit more awesome each and every day!
