Act, Belong, Commit
The Town of Victoria Park is an Act, Belong, Commit partner. What does this mean for you?
It’s as easy as A-B-C: Act-Belong-Commit.
Act - keep mentally, physically, socially and spiritually active: take a walk, say g’day, read a book, do a crossword, dance, play cards, stop for a chat...
Belong - join a book club, take a cooking class, be more involved in groups you are already a member of, go along to community events...
Commit - take up a cause, help a neighbour, learn something new...
Take a self-assessment and identify where you can improve in each of the Act-Belong-Commit domains.
Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health.
