On this page we offer practical suggestions for enhancing wellbeing and healthy living. Remember that no one can give you wellbeing – it’s you who has to take action.
What is Wellbeing?
Due neither to great wealth nor the relentless pursuit of short term pleasures Wellbeing results from identifying and fostering one’s talents and strengths.
Wellbeing reflects ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that lead to physical and psychological resilience; to experiencing feelings of joy more often than despair; to possessing a lifelong curiosity about the world around you. An urge to play and explore, to savour and appreciate life’s simple pleasures; to have the courage to face up to new challenges and the confidence to persist in the face of set-backs; to maintain close and rewarding relationships throughout our life. Wellbeing is associated with good health and a robust immune system. There is a strong relationship between wellbeing and the amount of trust and goodwill within families and the wider community. The more time you spend with family, friends and neighbours, the more you participate in community activities, the happier you are and the healthier the community in which you live.

Enhance Wellbeing – Mindfulness Meditation Series – Dan Jones
Meditation can be used to enhance feelings of wellbeing. This programme comprises four different meditations.
The first is designed to help you create calm and focus and begin to learn how to re-centre your mind and body by focusing on your breathing. If your mind wanders, that’s OK, just bring your awareness back to your breath. It is a short meditation that can be used many times a day.
The second meditation helps you to be aware of the present moment, of everything they can hear, see and feel. Each day we go through life only aware of what we choose to focus on, we rarely stop and allow ourselves to take in all the information available to us without labelling any of that information, just allowing ourselves to be aware and in the moment.
The third meditation guides you to become aware of your own body and the different feelings and sensations within. It helps your become mindful of your body without attaching to any one feeling or sensation but instead opening yourself up to your body as a whole.
If you find yourself constantly being made anxious or depressed by imagining things going wrong or similar negative and unhelpful thoughts or ideas, then meditation number four, can be used to learn how to consciously direct your imagination to problem solving and positive mental rehearsal. It will enable you to take control of how your imagination works in everyday life.
