LC: To identify a wide range of factors that maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle, physically and mentally.
Wellbeing is the state of being healthy, safe, comfortable and happy. Our wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, or month to month.
Sometimes it changes because of things that happen to us and sometimes it changes for no reason at all. It can affect the way we feel about ourselves and others, and about the things we face in our lives.
Having good wellbeing can help you to:
- Feel and express a range of emotions.
- Have confidence and positive self-esteem.
- Have good relationships with others.
- Enjoy the world around you.
- Cope with stress and adapt when things change.
Good wellbeing doesn't mean you'll always be happy. It's normal to feel sad, angry, or low sometimes. But if you have poor wellbeing for a long time you might start to find things more difficult to cope with.
