What is wellbeing? It feels like every time we go online or switch on the gogglebox these days, somebody’s having a convo about wellbeing. But what does it actually mean and should we be striving for it? The Oxford English Dictionary defines wellbeing as ‘the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy’, but we think there’s a bit more to it than that. For starters, wellness can take many forms – what makes you happy might be totally different from what tickles our pickle! We think that wellbeing is about creating the conditions to thrive. It’s about quality of life, a good sense of self-worth, and physical, spiritual and mental health. It’s not just a passing trend While there’s a lot of talk about wellbeing at the moment, it’s defo not just a fad. In fact, it’s been around since the 3rd Century BC, when Aristotle came up with the concept of Eudaimonia – the condition of human flourishing or living well. We reckon it’s always been relevant, but never more so than now, with the pressures of modern life. How to improve your wellbeing Fancy joining gen zen, or helping somebody you love to bring some much-needed balance to their life? Well there’s no short answer on this one, but we’ll give it a go… 1) Practice mindfulness. It’s a big word for a simple practice. Basically, it’s about being in the present, and paying full attention to what’s going on, without judgement. This Little Book of Mindfulness is the perfect intro for mindfulness newbies and this Mindfulness Guide and Journal is filled with tools and practices to help enhance your wellbeing . 2) Spend time with other people. Don’t just go to the pub. Engage in activities together, like team sports, a bike ride or this Talking Tables Pick Me Up Yoga Puzzle. 3) Take time out. Daily life can be so busy that it’s easy to forget to make time for ourselves. This School of Life 15 Minute Timer is an elegant solution to a modern problem, helping you or a loved one remember to take a little time out each day. 4) Do something creative. Creative activities like painting, writing, cooking and crafting are incredibly mindful, and have a positive effect on mental health and self-esteem. This Wool and the Gang Bloom Embroidery Kit is a pretty way to reduce your stress levels. 5) Stay active. Exercise is one of the best ways to upgrade your sense of wellbeing. Yoga is especially known for its ability to decrease stress and improve overall happiness. These Luckies Calm Yoga Cards are perfect for intermediate yogis and beginners alike and this fully illustrated Little Book of Yoga would be the ideal companion gift.
