What is Feelgood Fortnight?

14 days. 5 Ways to Wellbeing. 1 goal.

Our flexible range of challenges are linked to the Five Ways to Wellbeing.

Taking small steps to better mental wellbeing can make a big difference. Our challenges are about taking positive actions. 

Feelgood Fortnight is free to sign up, and there is no minimum fundraising amount. As a thank you for raising money, you'll receive a free Mind t-shirt with your first donation. Your fundraising will have a big impact on what we can do in the future.

What are some examples of challenges I could do?

  • Hold a bake sale

  • Join a new local group

  • Volunteer some time locally

  • Ditch the car or Uber and donate the usual cost to your challenge

  • Take on a 5km

  • Complete 100,000 steps over your fortnight 

What feelgood challenges can I do?

We recommend picking four of our challenges to take on over the two weeks. However, you can take on fewer or more if you'd prefer. You might want to pick one challenge from each Way to Wellbeing or choose from one or two areas that stand out to you the most.


Connecting with others can help us feel close to people, and valued for who we are.

Challenges: Hold a bake sale, put on a coffee morning, join a new local group.


Taking part in social and community life feels good. There's evidence that people who help others are more likely to rate themselves as happy.

Challenges: Volunteer some time locally, take part in a litter pick, ditch the car or Uber and donate the usual cost to your challenge.

Get Active.

Getting active can help you sleep better, have happier moods, and reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and racing thoughts.

Challenges: Take on a 5km, complete 100,000 steps over your fortnight, clock 7 hours of physical activity over the 2 weeks.


We're always learning new things - often without realising it. Feeling like you're learning and developing can boost your self-esteem.

Challenges: Pick up a new skill, set a reading goal for the fortnight, go live and share your skills online.

Take notice.

Reminding yourself to take notice can help you be more aware of how you're feeling. Savouring 'the moment' can also help you to feel more positive about life.

Challenge: You might notice we don't have challenges to choose from the Take Notice Way to Wellbeing. Keep your eyes on your emails for more information as we may have a surprise coming towards the end of the challenge to do with this.

Up for a bigger challenge? Let the people who donate vote for a bonus challenge for you to take on.

Any questions?

“As well as being active, running helped me live in the moment, instead of worrying about the past or the future”
