The Wellbeing Journey

1,478 views

Published on

The Wellbeing Journey is a development programme for building mental strength, resilience, health and happiness. It is an antidote to stress, anxiety, depression and low self confidence.

The Wellbeing Journey is inspired and informed by a highly successful two-year personal transformation programme we have co-led in Austria, Germany, Denmark and UK over the last nine years.

The Wellbeing Journey offers holistic pathways to self knowledge, health and happiness that start from the inside out. During the 10 month Journey participants learn pragmatic concepts, tools and practices that enable them to lead a more whole and balanced life.

This Journey comprises 10 one-day modules at monthly intervals. The time in between the modules is for practice and developing mastery. Participants are supported by an online learning community, a workbook journal to record insights and learnings, set goals and intentions and evaluate the benefits, and a buddy group.

  1. 2. Positive well-being is seen to be an important tool in helping “people feel able and motivated to exercise choice and control and to adopt healthy lifestyles”. National Institute for Mental Health in England (2005). Making it Possible
  2. 3. “ Mental health governs our quality of life, our relationships and our aspirations. “ Good mental health is fundamental to the resilience of individuals, families, communities and businesses. “ It decides, in short, whether a society is flourishing or floundering.”
  3. 4. The recent Foresight  Mental Capital and Wellbeing Project  has drawn on state-of-the-art research about how to improve mental wellbeing. Working with the New Economics Foundation's Centre for Wellbeing, it recommends five simple actions that, if practised regularly, can improve our mental wellbeing. 1. Connect - With the people around you. 2. Be active - Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. 3. Take notice - Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. 4. Keep learning - Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. 5. Give - Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. people around you.
