There are two main elements to well-being: feeling good and functioning well. To feel and function better, there are things you can do – the Five Ways to Well-being.
Well-being is how we feel about ourselves and our part in the world around us. It is affected by our circumstances, the activities we are involved in, and our inner strength and resources. By improving our well-being, we are more able to:
- Engage with people and the world around us
- Have positive relationships
- Have a sense of purpose
- Bounce back from difficulties
