World Wellbeing Week 2021

World Wellbeing Week 2021

Hey everyone,

Hope you’re keeping well and enjoying the end of the term!

This week, I thought I’d raise awareness of the World Wellbeing Week 2021.

Now in its third year, World WellBeing Week runs in the last week of June, with the 2021 campaign running from 21 June. The campaign has been co-ordinated by Wellbeing World and aims to raise awareness of wellbeing, its importance in society and workplace wellbeing.

The pandemic has also revealed a capacity for change, never before thought possible, with people adapting mentally and physically.

But what is wellbeing?

Essentially a good or satisfactory condition of existence, wellbeing is also a state of being comfortable, healthy or happy. It has never before been so important.

Any acknowledgment of wellbeing is a move in the right direction, and it is often something that brings with it a wide variety of interpretations. Wellbeing will always mean different things to different people, across different ages and different cultures, and this will change as circumstances change.
