|Friday the 11th of July 2014 marked the launch of the Wheel of Well-being website.More and more research is showing us how certain positive actions can improve our mood, reduce risk of depression, strengthen our relationships, keep us healthy and even add seven years to our lives.
The Wheel of Well-being (WoW) is a simple framework that translates this research into positive practice. At the heart of the Wheel of Well-being is the WoW website, a practical collection of free tips, tools, activities and ideas – from a DIY Happiness game to promote well-being at community events, to a Happier at Work programme to improve well-being in the workplace.
“Well-being is about a positive state of mind and body, feeling safe and able to cope, and having a sense of connection with those around us. A focus on well-being can bring positive benefits for people and places. The Wheel of Well-being is a welcome tool which offers helpful tips and practical assistance to individuals, families and communities seeking to improve well-being.”
