Top up your wellbeing take this World Wellbeing Week, June 27-July 1

Whether you’re a ‘glass half full’ or ‘glass half empty’ kind of person, World Wellbeing Week 2022 is for you!  It’s an opportunity to get in touch with how you’re doing with your wellbeing and discover what you can do if you don’t like what you see.

What do we mean by wellbeing?

There are many facets to wellbeing, from social, physical and emotional factors, to career, community and environmental considerations. It can be understood as a state of feeling good and functioning well, living with vitality in balance with our environment, enjoying good mental and physical health, having hope, purpose and a sense of control over one’s life.

Not solely determined by our external realities, our state of wellbeing is influenced by how we experience those realities. It’s about how we evaluate our lives as a whole, including job satisfaction, home life, leisure time, our relationships, and even how well we sleep.

Wellbeing is necessary for individuals and communities to grow and fulfil their potential.

So how would you rate your wellbeing?

Ask yourself:

Are you optimistic about your future?

Do you feel useful in your personal and professional life?

Are you socially connected and feeling interested in others?

Do you feel energetic?

Do you cope well with problems?

Are you interested in new things?

If your responses reflect more negativity than positivity, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Flourish Australia supports the recovery of people experiencing complex mental health challenges with a fully integrated approach to their total wellbeing.

Do more of what promotes wellbeing.

Our relationships with others top the list! Positive connections and shared experiences build a sense of belonging and self-worth.

Staying physically active is vital for physical and mental wellbeing. It actually causes a chemical shift in the brain that elevates your mood and helps you to smash your goals.

Learning something new, whether it’s a vital life skill or enjoyable hobby, improves mental wellbeing and builds confidence, self-esteem and a sense of purpose.

Giving to others and showing kindness creates positive feelings and a sense of reward.

Being present in the moment helps us to find greater enjoyment in everyday tasks and tune into what’s going on inside us, working wonders to the way we feel about life.

Traps you don’t want to fall into include consistent poor sleep, substance abuse, gambling, neglecting relationships, eating poorly, skipping daily exercise and not drinking enough water to stay hydrated. When these negative behaviours start creeping in, you could be on a fast track to diminished physical and psychological wellbeing.
