WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
What is well-being?
Well-being is about focusing on how we’re feeling. Do you feel like you have enough energy? Do you feel in the right frame of mind? Do you feel like you are showing up as well as you can?
Well-being is holistic – it’s about the physical, mental and spiritual health.
Well-being is about identifying what you need to do to feel as good as you possibly can.
Internal vs External
Well-being is not about trying to tick external boxes – it’s about listening to your intuitive voice of love, inner strength and wisdom to identify and focus on what feels good for you.
You have the control over your inner-world which is the biggest contributor to your well-being.
Don’t focus on things outside of yourself to bring you happiness and well-being eg fancy car, weight loss, more money, house, partner (however, we live in a world that has wired us to think like this, so don’t beat yourself up about it!). You don’t need to wait for these external things to happen to feel good in yourself. Essentially this is looking for happiness and well-being in all the wrong places.
Goal setting is still important, however should always be tied back to a ‘feeling’. What will you actually feel when you achieve that goal, and is it realistic?
Following a breast cancer diagnosis
Looking after yourself and prioritizing your well-being is something that can be focused on when undergoing breast cancer treatment.
Be proactive about your well-being…you will feel better for it
Following a breast cancer diagnosis the self-care dial needs to be turned up to maximum.
When you look after your well-being, everything else will be easier to tackle.
When you prioritize your well-being
When you don’t prioritize your well-being
Life is frantic, scattered, and overloaded (TIP: If you’re feeling like this, Pause! Breathe! Prioritize!)
You are constantly looking for validation.
What can you do to start prioritizing your well-being?
Meditation – app, YouTube (every morning or evening)
Journaling – what are you grateful for? What makes you happy
Movement – what sort of movement does your body need today?
Diarise – put time aside for your well-being
Although don’t forget that….
