Looking after your Wellbeing
If you’ve heard of the term ‘mental wellbeing’ and don’t know what it is, or you want to find out how you can look after your wellbeing and feel good, we’re here to help you learn more.
What is mental wellbeing?
Your mental wellbeing is about how you’re feeling right now, and how well you can cope with daily life. 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.
Why is my wellbeing important?
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.
