What does inner wellbeing mean to you?

Feeling balanced, whole, healthy and connected. Feeling great trust into the course of events and the direction of my personal development path.

How would you define wellbeing in one word?


Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?

Movement to wake up in the morning, yoga & breathing exercises, guided meditation, journaling, walks in nature.

Why is it important that we prioritize individual, organizational and societal wellbeing?

I am convinced that we will not make a change in this world if we don’t start by changing our personal harmful patterns of thought, emotions and behaviors.

Do you have any favourite books, podcasts, or articles that you believe support, promote, or educate on wellbeing and related themes?
