General wellbeing experiences to consider:-

  • Workplace wellbeing – reflect on your work-life balance
  • Social wellbeing – have friends and family to socialise with. Join up with like minded social groups. In person, not just online.
  • Intellectual wellbeing – get them brain cells buzzing. Learn and instrument, do a puzzle, study…
  • Emotional wellbeing – try some introspection & meditation for self awareness
  • Financial wellbeing – yes, savings and all that jazz. 
  • Life choices on sleep, diet, physical activity, hygiene, and relaxation
  • Body movement & exercise – slow or fast, short or long…keep that body moving
  • Physical healing – herbal medicine, dry needling, homeopathy, massage, naturopathy…and many more
  • Mind and body – with yoga, meditation, or beauty treatments. These two go very well together
  • Sensory experiences that focus on your Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste, and Touch. A cooking class has all of these…in one experience!
