Starting fresh in 2021

Take some simple steps this year to help manage stress, improve your sleep and boost your wellbeing.


New year wellbeing ideas

To help improve your wellbeing, try to:

  • take a digital detox – turn off the electronics for a weekend
  • set a micro-goal – make your plans realistic, but stay flexible
  • drop the all or nothing thinking – try not to deal in absolutes
  • find your recharge space and use it
  • make an effort to connect (or reconnect) with others.

Sleep well in 2021

To get better sleep this year, try to:

  • keep the bedroom cool – between 15-19 degrees
  • set up a night time wind down routine
  • be regular – try to go to sleep and get up at the same time
  • bring your bedtime forward in 15 minute lots
  • dim the lights and turn off the electronics.
