Find your way to okay

Life can be hard sometimes. But there’s a heap of little things you can do to maintain your emotional strength. Little tactics that bring calm, steady the way and help you feel okay day-to-day.

We are all different, and the things that work for others may be different to what works for you.

What is mental wellbeing?

Mental wellbeing encompasses how we feel emotionally, physically, psychologically and socially. We all have our own level of mental wellbeing, which can be influenced by a range of factors including genetics, personality and day-to-day interactions and experiences. The shared environments in which we are born, grow, learn, work, play and live also affect our mental wellbeing.

Having high levels of mental wellbeing doesn’t mean feeling good all the time. Life has ups and downs, and all people experience difficult or painful emotions like sadness, worry and frustration. Being able to acknowledge and understand these emotions is a key component of mental wellbeing, helping us to cope when times are tough. 

It’s not about chasing perfection. It’s about finding your own way to okay. 

Take the time to explore and experiment

There are lots of things within your control, that can help to protect and build your mental wellbeing. We are all different, and the things that work for others may be different to the things that work for you. Take the time to explore and experiment, until you find what works for you.
