What are your 5 a day stress busters?

I’m sure you’ve all heard the 5 fruit & veg per day mantra that is the key to healthy eating. I stumbled across a project today that sets out to do the same for our mental wellbeing. It’s founded by the RSA and is called Mindapples.  This is what the site has to say:

“Mindapples is a social movement to promote individual self-management of mental wellbeing. The original “5-a-day” campaign encouraged people to take care of their physical health through simple daily activities, and we want to do the same thing for mental health. We aim to create a stigma-free public debate about mental wellbeing, simply by asking everybody the question: “What’s your five-a-day?””

My five-a-day

  1. Riding my bike
  2. Going to the gym
  3. Have crunchy nuts in the morning
  4. Walking the dog
  5. Listening to music

You can take the survey yourself and help the project compile the 5 most popular activities for mental wellbeing.

  1. Adi… you might want to put a capital C and N on ‘crunchy nuts’. Or maybe it’s just my mind that chuckled when I saw you de-stressing by ‘having crunch nuts in the morning’.

    Anyway… my five:

    1. cuddles with my family
    2. going for a run
    3. going for a walk in the Lakes
    4. cooking
    5. eating what I’ve cooked 🙂
