Have a look at the five areas of Be Well. Think about what areas you may need to explore further to keep your health in balance.
Be Well is a health framework to help understand the different areas that make us healthy. Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted by work and our social life so our health can be neglected. Be Well has five areas so we can look at those aspects of our health we currently take care of and those areas we may want to do more of or explore further to keep our health in balance. The five areas are:
- Be Active
- Be Mindful
- Be Healthy
- Be Connected
- Be You
Walk, run, swim, cycle, explore new sports, try new activities and have fun. Do these frequently and creatively. Staying active doesn’t need to be a chore, even small changes and social activities can make a big difference.
Live in the moment and take notice of the things around you. Understand yourself through your experiences, respond well to situations, be calmer and perform better.
Sleep well, cook new and healthy recipes, enjoy the outdoors, get away from your screen and make healthy choices. This will help to make you feel ready and get the most out of your day.
Make time to connect with others around you to feel supported, encouraged, and part of a university, city, national and international community. Talk, listen and support friends, family, coursemates and neighbours and they will do the same for you.
Celebrate individuality. Reflect on who you are and who you want to be to become the best version of yourself.
