What does the term wellbeing mean?

The terms 'wellbeing' and 'wellness' are closely connected. Wellness is how you feel today; the state of your mental and physical self at the present time. Wellbeing is your future; a more long-term outlook on the quality of life, and the opportunities to expand on your present wellness.

Wellbeing is generally addressed through six dimensions.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of gently focusing your awareness on the present moment, without judgement or distraction. Mindfulness can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better.
