Wellbeing - To support us in all ways!



Wellbeing encompasses a variety of areas that, when balanced, can often help us to feel and perform our best in all areas of life. Small changes can lead to big results in these areas and they can be practiced daily. 


Physical - Move More and Eat Better 

This area of wellbeing focuses on caring for your body more, by preventing disease risks, and adding quality years to your life through daily activity and nutritious food. This can be done by getting daily exercise, such as walking, sports, yoga, swimming and more. Making healthier food choices, while cutting down on caffeine and sugar can help support us physically and mentally.  


Emotional - Practice Gratitude

It’s easy to get caught up in what’s going on around us and forget what’s going on within ourselves. There are lots of moments that challenge us daily, and it can be very helpful to stop and acknowledge all the moments we have, both good and bad, because they all lead somewhere eventually. Being grateful for all your experiences, the breath in your lungs, the sun on your face, the family and friends you have, the food you eat and the roof over your head are good places to start your gratitude practice. It’s as simple as feeling joy and saying thanks. 


Vocational - Follow Your Passion

We all want to do what we love. By focusing on the things we enjoy, and fostering our curiosities, we can often find we go down paths that lead us to the most amazing places. Whether that starts in secondary school, college, university or in the workforce, every day is a learning day, an opportunity to start again and try something new that serves you best. Remember to think outside the box and follow your instincts. 


Intellectual - Fuel Your Brain

Having an open and active mind can help lead to a life filled with passion and purpose. Our minds love to be engaged, challenged and nurtured through creative and stimulating activities. These activities can also serve to calm and ground us at the same time. These can be things like learning a new skill or language, reading, physical activity, puzzles, even socializing or volunteering can provide valuable mental stimulation that can engage and teach us in a variety of different ways. You should learn something new every day, take note of it.


Environmental - Love the Planet that Gives You Life

We all have a role to play in making sure we have clean air to breathe, fresh water to drink, meadows and forests to support us, along with many species of animals, insects, birds and plants. Being aware of how your daily actions impact the earth can help you to be more mindful and influence your well being on this planet in a more positive way. Recycling, reusing, reducing and not littering can all help to improve your planet and your space within it. Remember if you're not part of the solution, you’re a part of the problem. 


Spiritual - Recognizing Beliefs 

Understanding that we all live by a set of core beliefs or values that helps to shape how we  live our lives can support or enrich our spiritual wellbeing. If you can seek meaning and purpose in life with an open mind it may help you find an inner peace. Practicing mindful meditations by spending time alone, walking, or dedicated meditations can help you to listen to your inner voice, allowing you and those around you the freedom to be who they are. Try your best to accept and respect others for you and what they are. 


Social - Connecting with Others

Having personal connections can help to contribute to a longer and more fulfilling life. Nurturing relationships with family and friends can create healthy support networks for life. Playing sports, visiting friends or family, making phone calls or going for a walk with a friend are just some of the ways we can support our social connections. Having people in your life that you can open up to, can help to relieve stress, build resilience and support mental and physical wellbeing. 


In Summary -


Physical - Choose good quality foods over packaged and processed ones. Eat a small healthy meal every few hours to avoid dips in energy and imbalances with hormones and weight. Move daily for your physical and mental health, even if it’s just a walk or some stretching, it all adds up. 

Emotional - Respect and love yourself, even if it can be challenging, there are always more positives than negatives. Be aware of how you feel and what around you is influencing that either positively or negatively. 

Vocational - Follow your passion, stay curious, ask questions and don’t shy away from challenges. Don’t worry if you don’t know what you want to do or be, you’ll discover you can do and be many things in this life. 

Intellectual - Always be learning, try new things, sign up for a course, and do things on your own to continue to increase your skills and confidence. 

Environmental - Never underestimate the importance of the earth beneath your feet, without it you wouldn’t be here. So make conscious decisions about your impact on the planet, it will feel better to know you’re supporting it rather than harming it. 

Spiritual - Beliefs mean different things to each of us and learning to understand yours, while respecting others can help you to be more open minded and kinder in general. 

Social - Connect daily by talking to family, friends and even strangers, you never know how a kind word could change someone for the better. 


Try to remember that just like anything, learning to be who you are takes practice and commitment. As we improve we develop more, as we develop more we get better at it, and if we’re lucky, in time it all becomes a good bit easier, or at least well balanced.
