Unique & Different
A trip to a small shopping strip can offer all sorts of interesting and different treasures to explore, such as op shops, small and exclusive jewellery shops, second hand books, Asian groceries and Atrisan bakers, whilst also offering the experience of knowing your locals, getting personal service and advice that you won't get from large shopping centres and retails outlets.

Visit a Pub in Winter
Can't beat a great pub with an open fireplace for the true experience of relaxing in a cosy format. Not only do they offer warmth, but serve good comfort food at modest prices, some have entertainment and if you are looking for a chat this is the place to go. (No snobs allowed)

Movies as Ice Breakers
Movies can be great ice breakers when you are getting to know someone. Even choosing a movie together helps you get to know your new acquaintance and provides an inexpensive outing whilst providing a topic to share in conversation

Sun, Waves & A Dose of Vitamin D
Whether it be a packed lunch or fish and chips at the beach this can be a very relaxing and rewarding experience, Just to sit and listen to children playing, watch the waves and the seagulls and enjoy the sun whilst enjoying a leisurely lunch with the sand between your toes.

Smell the Roses
Or so the saying goes. With our world of disconnection and fast pace we can benefit greatly from taking time to share ourselves with ourselves and others. Look in the mirror and honestly ask yourself "Do I like who I see and am I truly happy?" Get to know yourself, write down your good and bad qualities and then take the time to build on your strengths and to delete your weaknesses.

Relax with a good book, take up Meditation, ring someone you have not seen for a long time and make arrangements to catch up.

Volunteer
Volunteering is not only rewarding for others but can be one of the most selfless things we can do for ourselves. We are much more likely to get more our of giving to others that they are going to get. The rewards are almost unmeasurable.
