What is World Wellbeing Week?

World Wellbeing week originated in Jersey two years’ ago, in 2019.

Now a global event, World Wellbeing week gives recognition to raising awareness for all aspects of wellbeing, including:

  • Environmental
  • Emotional
  • Social
  • Physical
  • Financial
  • Community
  • Career

World Wellbeing week gives recognition to professional practitioners, charities and social enterprises who work hard in their particular area of wellbeing.

Wellbeing is a very broad term, and means something a little different to everyone.

Some elements of wellbeing in daily life include: health, happiness, family time, relaxation time, alone time, exhilaration, inspiration, read a book time, listen to music time, yoga, and many, many more.

World Wellbeing weeks looks closely at the 5 ways of Wellbeing, which are:

  • Connect

    Good relationships are essential for everyone’s mental wellbeing, giving a sense of belonging and self-worth.
  • Get Active

    Being active raises your self-esteem, as well as your heart rate! It causes chemical changes in your brain which can help to positively change your mood.
  • Be Mindful

    Mindfulness can help you enjoy life more, and also understand yourself better. Being mindful helps relieve stress, improves sleep, and can lower blood pressure, amongst other worthwhile benefits.
  • Keep Learning

    Research shows that learning new skills and gaining knowledge elevates self-confidence, and helps you to connect with others.
  • Give to Others

    Acts of giving and kindness benefit both you, and the recipient of the kindness! As well as creating a sense of reward, giving to others gives a sense of purpose.
