Well Being Definition
Well being is a state of balanced life.
Good life moments and stress are inevitable parts of our lives. No life on this planet is stress free or goodness free. Its a whole another story if we forget to appreciate the positive and choose to get lost in negative whirlwinds. Understand the nature of life and roll with it, not against it. To promote inner balance take a look at these tips.
#1 Live positive feelings without fearing negative. And handling yourself and situation as well as you can when negativity comes.
#2 Does our life has a meaning that is true to us, it could be in any area of life. Or are we just competing aggressively without giving a second thought that why are we doing this. Having a purpose greater than our own wants is fulfilling and makes life more rich. For us or others. Stop and Think Through.
#3 If we pay attention to our thoughts and actions, ask questions like :
- Why am i even doing this ?
- What makes me happy ?
- Is there another good way of doing this ?
- Whatever i am choosing to do, is it helping my life as well as others lives ?
- When was the last time i did something that made me really happy ?
- What is it that i want to do ?
State of wellness is highly impacted by questions we ask ourselves and language we use for self talk.
#4 Not being hard on yourself, even if you didn't do well or made mistakes is another dimension of well being about how we feel about ourselves. Constantly reminding yourself that you are a human being, mistakes will happen, its ok, let me figure out a way so that this doesn't happens again and let me be at peace. Forgiving ourselves and others also plays its part on building wellness.
#5 Do Not compare your unique self and your life's journey with those around. Focusing just on our life gives us so much of freedom and let other peoples lives be just that others lives. We can always get inspiration and appreciate other people, without comparing ourselves to them. Instead learning from there successes and failures. Sharing and relating without putting pressure on ourselves about good or bad life phases of others.
