Do you know what wellbeing truly is? Well, it’s a word that covers many aspects of how good life feels. It can be the feeling you get when you are doing something meaningful or when your time is free from worry and stress.
What is positive wellbeing?
The positive wellbeing of a person is when they are happy, safe, comfortable and fulfilled – mentally, physically, emotionally, financially and/or socially. Basically, when our core needs are met.
Why Is Wellbeing Important?
Wellbeing is important for a happy and fulfilled life. Just like happiness, it’s not a place you reach and stay in, wellbeing does and will change many times in our lives, but it’s important to stay in tune with ourselves and understand when our wellbeing is being affected and how to turn that around.
The concept of wellbeing is different for everyone and is therefore highly subjective.
However, in this post, we provide a collection of quotes to help encourage your own wellbeing journey and I’m sure at least a few will resonate for each and every one of you. They include wellbeing topics on many aspects that make up a holistic life: mentally, physically, emotionally, financially and socially.
