What does inner wellbeing mean to you?

Inner wellbeing is the constant practice of all the activities that help us feel healthy, at peace of mind and full of energy. Each of us need to go through the journey to discover what are those specific initiatives that care and nourish our physical, mental , emotional and spiritual health.

How would you define wellbeing in one word?

Living at your full potential.

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

I practice yoga, I meditate and take care as much as I can of muy closest relationships.

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

We live in a complex world. We frequently forget we are human and we are nature. We are not a piece of machinery that functions non stop. We need to take care of our bodies, minds, heart and environment as well as our relationships. Health is not only physical but being in a state to be able to relate to others and contribute from our talents and strengths.
