The Year of Wellbeing is a campaign from Telford & Wrekin Council that aimed to boost people’s wellbeing following the coronavirus pandemic.
After a year, thousands of people across Telford and Wrekin made pledges to improve their how they felt as part of the campaign.
The Year of Wellbeing has encouraged people to work in little things into their lives that can give their wellbeing a boost. Hundreds of people have made time to go for regular walks, to sleep better, to connect with friends and family more often, and to limit the use of social media.
Like these people, you can make your pledge to improve your wellbeing today. Once done, we’ll send you an email each week for 12 weeks as a helpful reminder of your pledge. Improving how you feel is about making small achievable changes over time. So each email is packed with simple tips and information anyone can practice in their everyday life.
Our survey asked people how much they have enjoyed being part of the Year of Wellbeing.
- 95% are more motivated to look after their wellbeing,
- 68% say they feel healthier and happier,
- and 99% would recommend the campaign emails to a friend.
