What is well-being?
Well-being is the integration of positive feelings, meaningful doing, and sustainable connecting. Well-being is something we’re all deeply familiar with, and yet it is still a complex concept. Caring for your mental and physical well-being positions you to do your best in the classroom, on the field, or in any endeavor your set your mind to.
Mind: Taking care of your mind is critical to managing your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and also allows you to reason, innovate, practice self-compassion, empathize, and develop insight.
Body: Caring for your body is foundational to wellbeing and includes getting good sleep, physical exercise, and eating well. Wellbeing for your body is not tied to physical ability or size.
Relationships: Healthy relationships and meaningful connections help create thriving communities where everyone feels valued and respected.
Purpose: A sense of purpose helps you make sense of your experience in the world, discover what is meaningful to you, and figure out who you want to become.
