As you say goodbye to 2020, why not make a New Year’s resolution that will help you feel better? Research shows that learning a new skill can improve your mental wellbeing. It works by:
Choose something that you’ll enjoy – ideas include painting, sculpture, chess, learning a new language, or making furniture or clothes. Alternatively, consider volunteering. There are lots of different opportunities available, and you’ll get the bonus of helping others, too.
