According to the Oxford English Dictionary the definition of well-being is

“The state of being or doing well in life; happy, healthy, or prosperous condition; moral or physical welfare (of a person or community).”

Is that how you are both being, and feeling, in your life – happy, healthy, or feeling wealthy in yourself?

However if you are feeling tired, depleted, lost your mojo and fed up, boosting your wellbeing may be what you need.

Topping up your Wellbeing could be any or all of these things to you plus many more.  These are a starting point:

 

Self-care

Self-compassion

Gratitude

Boosting happiness levels

Putting joy into your life

 

Self-care for me is having calm time with a lively job (and possibly ADHD too).  I find calm time in the mornings in the form of Yoga Nidra, alternating with a walk.

Yoga Nidra is absolute bliss and I love spreading awareness at how superb it is for anxiety and sleep deficit, amongst many other benefits.  We all love this in a one hour Laughter Yoga workshop! It’s complete “Zen”

 

Self-compassion – starting to talk to ourselves’ and care for ourselves, like a long standing supportive, warm friend.  Nurturing ourselves and doing what we need to do instead of being a people-pleaser.  You can’t pour from an empty cup can you?

 

Gratitude – we’re simply hard-wired to respond negatively so turning this around and finding 3 things to be grateful for each day (at night this is especially good).  However small, there will be something to be thankful for.  Occasionally it’s harder than others of course.

 

Boosting happiness levels – do what you love.

What haven’t you done for a long time that you used to really enjoy?

Who do you love being with?

Where do you love going?

Do all these because you only live once.

Have no regrets.

Do the activities to nourish your soul and make you happy – many are free or cost very little.  Please, however, be aware of buying too many things to “make” you happy.  It’s very short-term!  Be happy with participating in the good stuff – you are amazing!  Be proud of yourself.

 

Putting joy into your life – 4 activities or put all of them together – singing, dancing, laughing, and playing all put joy deep inside you.  It’s joy that gives you that lovely buzzy feeling, lights you up, feel that life is super-amazing.  Put on some music first thing in the morning (have your own bouncy morning playlist)

All 4 aspects of joy we put into one hour Laughter Yoga sessions.  Squeeze every ounce of joy into them!

Joy really helps us cope with challenges.  It’s like a super-power.

 

Write down which of these you’re planning to do:

Self-care

Self-compassion

Gratitude

Boosting happiness levels

Putting joy into your life

 

Then enjoy your life and live to the fullest!
