Wellness is a misunderstood concept – it is not ‘yoga on a beach’ like we see on social media.
Wellness is everything, both within us, and around us.
It is about building a life that brings us joy, happiness, and fulfilment.
Wellness is an equilibrium with which we curate lives that leave us feeling content, and happy.
We call these the foundations on which we build our lives.
Let’s explore these foundations, and understand how to begin building these so we can achieve happier, more fulfilling lives.
Being able to build, cultivate, and maintain healthy relationships, with family, friends and partners, is critical to combatting loneliness and a pillar to finding happiness in our lives.
Like our physical fitness, our mental health needs us to care for it, train it, and explore new ways to nurture it as we change and grow. Our mind can be our superpower.
A healthy body is critical to every other pillar. We have only one body, which, when maintained, is like a finely crafted piece of machinery. It needs regular upkeep to keep us moving.
Growth happens in all parts of our lives, yet many tend to forget the need for growth on a personal level. Becoming introspective allows us to explore our deepest sense of self, and achieve our great potentials.
While income is mainly derived from our career, financial stability also incorporates our living environment, assets, savings and investment. When we’re financially secure enough to weather life’s storms, we feel more grounded within.
Similar to Financial Stability, although career success should never be measured by income only. Career success explores our fulfilment in the work we do, and whether we’re living aligned to our personal values. Success is happiness.
Every human being needs to consider the foundations of wellness in their lives. If we do not prioritise caring for our own foundations, we will always struggle to care for others to our greatest capability.
As LGBTQ+ people, we experience significantly higher rates of substance abuse, mental health conditions and suicide than the UK’s national averages. It’s therefore important to know and understand how to care for ourselves, and our personal foundations.
LGBTQ Wellness has been set up to help our community achieve these outcomes, and slowly heal, and grow.
Through a mix of website content, social media support, and grassroot events in Manchester, we are supporting our community through their healing and growth.
Led by experts in the fields of personal development, personal wellness and mental health, we have an extensive network of professionals across industries, available to help our community with every need.
