Wellbeing relates to how we feel physically, intellectually, socially, spiritually and emotionally.
There are aspects of maintaining good health and wellbeing that you can control.
There are also many factors you can’t control, such as family history, genetic history and the natural consequences of growing old which also affect health. However, there are steps we can take such as regular exercise and following a balanced and varied eating plan that can help maintain a healthy body weight, maintain heart and digestive health, maintain muscle and strong bones, and manage blood glucose levels – which are all vital to living a happy and healthy life.1 2.
Emotional health can be influenced by the level of stress we feel in our daily lives. Stress is not always a bad thing. For example, stress might come from exams or work and this can keep us motivated and provide a sense of achievement once the stressful time has passed. However, it is how much, how often and how we cope with stress that is important. To be emotionally healthy it is important to try and limit negative stress and find ways to relax regularly.
An active mind is essential to overall wellbeing. Being open to new ideas, thinking critically, being creative and curious, and being motivated to master new skills are the keys to intellectual wellbeing.
Having support networks, participating and contributing to the community, developing the capacity for intimacy and learning good communication skills all contribute to a positive state of social wellbeing. Food is a part of our social lives, with many of our food choices influenced by the attitudes and habits of people we socialise or live with.
Spirituality is intensely individual, which is expressed in a range of beliefs and practices. Finding meaning and purpose to life is the basis of spiritual wellbeing.
To maintain your health and wellbeing, try to do the following every day:
- Eat at least 3 balanced meals (snack on fruit, nuts and wholegrains in between);
- Include a wide variety of low GI carbohydrates, lean protein and plenty of vegetables at each meal;
- Be active in as many ways as you can;
- Introduce Bürgen® Bread into your daily eating plan! Bürgen® Bread daily provides nutrients and other beneficial substances that contribute towards health and wellbeing.
