Wellbeing implies a sense of thriving, flourishing, being fully alive, 'firing on all cylinders' and living life to the full, as well as feeling balanced and calm, contented and at ease with life.
Wellbeing is affected by many elements in our lives and varies from person to person because each of us has a different combination of psychological, emotional, social and physical inner resources upon which we draw. Our wellbeing fluctuates depending on the events, challenges and experiences we encounter in our lives
Here is another definition…
"Wellbeing can be imagined as a “see-saw” with a balance point between an individual’s inner resource pool and the challenges faced. Stable wellbeing is when individuals have the psychological, social and physical resources they need to meet a particular challenge. When individuals have more challenges than resources, the see-saw dips, along with their wellbeing."
(Dodge, Daley, Huyton & Sanders 2012)
How would you rate your wellbeing on a scale of 1-10?
What are your current challenges?
What are the resources that could move you closer to a 10?
