3. Take Notice – Be curious, catch sight of the beauty and changing seasons, remark on the unusual, savour the moment, etc. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling, reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.

4. Keep Learning – Try something new, rediscover an old interest, sign up to something you’ve never done before, take on a different responsibility etc. Set a challenge that you will enjoy achieving, learning makes you more confident.
