Wellness Balance: Assessing Your Current State

Posted on Updated on

Life Goes OnWell, exams are done and grades are posted. You now have a choice. Do you take this information, good or bad, and move forward in a new direction or do you stay stuck in old habits that no longer work? At this transition point, you have a choice. You can start with making changes that add balance to your life. If you were not as successful as you would have liked, what do you need to do differently? Brush up your study strategies? Manage your stress better? Make more time to be with family and friends? It is okay not to know what you need. I will help you out!

I was very fortunate to attend a wellness workshop facilitated by The Working on Wellbeing Group at the American Psychological Association Convention 2014. They offer a free online WELLBEING ASSESSMENT designed to give you insight into what is going well in your life while highlighting some areas to consider focusing on to increase your overall wellbeing.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need” Tao Te Ching

Take a moment to complete this free Wellbeing Assessment to gain some insight about yourself and what you need to move in a positive direction in your life. You do have a choice, but I must say although it can sometimes be frightening to move in an unknown direction, and the old ways seem so much easier, it is the unfamiliar path that often leads us to the best version of ourselves. Life approached with the best version of ourselves is empowering.  Personal empowerment leads to happiness and higher life satisfaction. Take the risk, it is so worth it!

*At the end of the Wellbeing Assessment there are links to web resources, apps and books.

    At a time when self-care and our well-being isn’t taken seriously thinking about things like this is really important. I honestly thought this website was going to be lame and boring but I was pleasantly surprised. I will definitely use this site as a resource in the future! Thank you for sharing!
