About achieving wellbeing
Wellbeing is not just the absence of disease or illness. It is a complex combination of a person’s physical, mental, emotional and social health factors. Every aspect of your life influences your state of wellbeing. The factors that influence wellbeing are interrelated. For example, a job provides not just money but purpose, goals, friendships and a sense of belonging. Some factors also make up for the lack of others. Australian researchers try to measure wellbeing in order to keep tabs on living conditions.
Tips to improving wellbeing
- Develop and maintain strong relationships
- Make regular time available for social contact
- Try to find work that you find enjoyable and rewarding
- Eat wholesome, nutritious foods
- Do regular physical activity
- Become involved in activities that interest you
- Join local organisations or clubs
- Set yourself achievable goals and work towards them
- Try to be optimistic and enjoy each day
How we can help
Our health care professionals can help improve wellbeing. Our dietitians and nutritionist can advise you on a healthy diet and good nutrition. Our skincare specialists recommend proper skincare which is helpful for Australians given our extreme levels of UV exposure and high rate of skin related problems. Improving communication skills together with helping alleviate difficulties with eating and drinking are areas where our speech pathologists can assist children and adults.
