Wellbeing - a balance between the demands of a busy life, and our energy for meeting those demands.

Wellbeing can be experienced in several aspects of life: work, friends, family, learning, community, physical health, mental health, finances and more. Seven primary experiences of wellbeing support a balanced, successful and thriving life.

  • Energy: The experience of having enough mental and physical energy to do the things you want and need to do.
  • Meaning: The experience of feeling purpose and belonging in life: you know that your work and actions matter.
  • Connection: The experience of feeling supported, cared for, and accepted, and of having positive, trusting relationships.
  • Joy: The experience of great pleasure and contentment about your life and the things you do.
  • Development: The experience of growing and progressing in life, by learning from experiences, rising to meet challenges, and experiencing success and achievement.
  • Resilience: The experience of optimism for the future, gratitude for your comforts and accomplishments, and strength and endurance for tougher times.
  • Security: The experience of safety of from physical and psychological harm: your basic life needs are consistently met, and you have the freedom to be yourself, try new things, and be open to change.
