Wellbeing – what does it mean? ‘The state of being comfortable, healthy and happy’
Throughout the 26 Day A-Z Guide to a Healthier, Happier Lifestyle, there has been a constant theme of total wellness and wellbeing. Being healthy is not just health in the physical sense, but we also need to take care of our mental health and spiritual health.
Total wellbeing is a stable state, a feeling of being comfortable within and having a sense of belonging. People who have achieved this state, have the ability to adapt to change and have a sense of purpose in life. They set realistic goals and make the most of their leisure time.
Your overall health is affected by every aspect of your life. It can be affected by:
- The types of food choices
- Good Balance between work and leisure
- Financial security
Whilst financial security is important, wealth does not necessarily mean you achieve total wellbeing. Working long hours to become financially secure, usually means that time with partner, family and friends is sacrificed.
How to achieve total wellbeing?
- Develop and maintain strong relationships and friendships
- Eat healthy and nutritious foods
- Exercise Regularly
- Set realistic goals
- Find enjoyment in your work
- Be involved – join a social group, volunteer
- Keep learning and extending your brain
- Be grateful
- Make each day count
