What does inner wellbeing mean to you?
For me, inner wellbeing is all about taking care of yourself in every sense imaginable. Putting yourself first, indulging in your passions, and getting to know and accept yourself – from the simplest of emotions to the most complex ones.
How would you define wellbeing in one word?
Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?
I am still learning and getting to know what works for me. Listening to calming music and trying to take care of myself physically and not thinking it is superficial are some of the big ones. Others that I believe will take more time consist of shifting my usual negative mindset to a more positive one (takes so much effort), and hopefully continuing to acquire skills that can help improve my self-confidence.
Off the record: Taylor Swift’s Folklore and Evermore albums are my “calm music” haha.
Why is it important that we prioritise individual and collective wellbeing?
If we don’t act from an intention of wellbeing both individually and collectively, the results of our actions can cause long lasting injuries that are later harder to heal. Not impossible, but harder. If we focus on our own (first) and others’ wellbeing, we can work towards growth and not destruction I believe.
