Wellbeing

Wellbeing describes your state of mind—how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. Our mental wellbeing is dynamic. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month, or year to year.

For running and living a good life one needs to have a good wellbeing. If that's not happening you will need to identify what wrong and take appropriate steps to handle it. It is necessary to have healthy state of mind for welfare of you, your family, your career and everyone who's life touches yours.

Firstly we need to know what comprises of a healthy state of mind. What ideally it should be capable of.

  • feel relatively confident in yourself
  • have positive self-esteem
  • feel and express a range of emotions
  • build and maintain good relationships with others
  • feel engaged with the world around you
  • live and work productively
  • cope with the daily life stresses
  • adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty

If you feel or know that you are not able to move positively in your life, you need to think what is affecting your wellbeing. We all are different, having different strengths facing different problems.

What affects someone's wellbeing may not affect others in the same way. But we all have times when we have low mental wellbeing, where we feel stressed out, upset or find it difficult to cope. We should try to change how we look at things (change perspective) as well as see inspiration around us.

There are a lot of people around going through so many things in life. These things can definitely help us to be back in control of our lives and start to see positive in life.

Wellbeing is different from "happiness." Happiness can come and go in a moment, whereas wellbeing is a more stable state of being well, feeling satisfied, and content. Positive emotions feel good in the moment and also affect our long-term wellbeing.

Mental health is now the largest cause of absence at work. Mental health has been recognized as an area of concern for workplace wellbeing. Poor mental health is the leading cause of sickness absence, with more than 15 million absence days attributed to stress, anxiety, and depression.

Well Being

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.
