This week's Thursday's thought I'm simply thinking about what is wellbeing?
It's a phrase that gets used more and more often however, people still regularly ask me what wellbeing is? It gets lumped in as health and wellbeing, or gets changed from wellbeing to wellness, or people talk about their physical well-being and their emotional wellbeing.
So what is wellbeing?
The way I understand health, fitness and well-being is that they can impact each other, but they also don't need to be synonymous.
My understanding is;
Health - being free from disease and illness.
Fitness - your body's ability to work at its peak performance.
Well-being - having a sense of peacefulness or calmness.
So health and fitness habits can improve your overall wellbeing. That is one route I go down with one of my programs, and also why some of my other videos and blogs I will talk about the holistic benefits of incorporating some habits into your life.
But ultimately to me, well-being is about the sense of peacefulness, calmness.
Whatever is going on in your external world being able to tap into that place where it's calmer.
Working on your wellbeing can be about learning how to understand your mind, how our subconscious works or even increasing your emotional intelligence. In some of these videos and blogs I'm going to be going into more detail about those parts of it as well as how to increase your wellbeing by the internal habits that we can be putting into practice.
So that's my thoughts on wellbeing, that it is being able to have a sense of peacefulness and calmness.
I'm really interested to know what your thoughts and views are of it as well?
What is your definition of wellbeing?
