What is wellbeing? 


Wellbeing refers to how you are feeling and how well you can cope with daily life. Overall wellbeing is affected by both physical (body) and mental health (mind). Wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, or week to week. Wellbeing can be affected by things that happen to you, but sometimes wellbeing changes and it seems as if there is no reason at all. 


Good wellbeing doesn't mean always feeling great physically or constantly happy. You can experience tiredness or develop a short-term illness, such as a cold, or have a disability and still be physically healthy. You can experiences negative emotions, such as sadness or anger, and still be mentally healthy. These things are a normal part of life. Having good wellbeing helps you to cope with these experiences. 


Good wellbeing helps us to:


  • enjoy life to the full
  • feel confident
  • cope with difficulties in life
  • adapt when things changes
  • feel confident develop and maintain good relationships with others
  • feel and express our emotions
