Quotes on what’s next for wellbeing
- Our mental health has been a key part of the way in which we’ve formed, sustained and managed relationships during the lockdown.
- I think it’s important to say that well being isn’t something that you have or you don’t have, that wellbeing incorporates physical and mental health to create an overall picture of being well.
- It’s unlikely that we all wake up perfectly mentally optimum every single day.
- Emotional well being involves identifying building upon and operating from one strength, rather than fixating on problems or weaknesses.
- Resilience isn’t about sucking it up, a stiff upper lip, and putting up with the nonsense of negative bullying behaviours.
