The Wellbeing Spectrum

Do you tend to feel the same way every day?  Day in, day out?

For most of us, the answer is NO….  and what’s important to remember is that  good mental wellbeing is NOT the absence of negative thoughts and feelings

I’m sure you’ve faced difficult and challenging situations – just like I have – and that causes you to feel a range of emotions – angry, sad,  overwhelmed and everything in-between

Good Wellbeing is about being able to understand and manage these feelings.  so  that generally you’re able to:

  • feel confident in yourself
  • build and maintain positive relationships
  • have a sense of purpose
  • live and work productively
  • manage when things change
  • cope with the normal stresses of day-to-day life

When it comes to wellbeing there is a SPECTRUM that ranges from CRISIS to STRUGGLING to SURVIVING to THRIVING to EXCELLING and there are different emotions connected to each stage.

On any given day you could go through a mix of these states.

The problem arises when you have prolonged periods in Struggling and Crisis….. And even prolonged period of Surviving is a sign that you are heading towards burnout and need to make some changes in your life.
