Wellbeing check-in


 We are wholistic beings.

Your overall health and wellbeing is made up of many components!
Sometimes when I am feeling in a general funk and I don't know where to turn, I do this activity to check-in on the various areas of my life to see where I many need to invest more time and energy. 


This is how you cope with life and create satisfying relationships. Our emotions impact the way we think and behave, working in a cycle like so...

For example,

If you were feeling lonely, you might think, "everyone doesn't like me", which often results in a behaviour change, such as withdrawal and isolation.

Often our emotions impact the relationships we have around us and how we manage our own emotional wellbeing, impacts the wellbeing of those around us.

What you can do:

  • Validate your emotional experience, this might be in journalling, or talking to someone about what has been going on.

  • Understand the impact your emotions have on those around you. If you find yourself feeling lonely, frustrated, angry, upset or even happy, that will have an impact on the relationships around you.

  • Do something to make yourself feel better


This relates to your overall sense of purpose and meaning in the world. Whether you have a faith of not, you can still find meaning and purpose in the world around you. Investing in your spiritual health can help you make meaning out of this crazy ride called life, add a deeper sense of connection to the world and people around you and assist in building a calmer, more balanced life.

What you can do:

  • Connect with your faith if you have one

  • Help others/ volunteer

  • Journal

  • Spend time in nature

  • Meditate or practice yoga/ gentle stretching.


We are intellectual beings, and investing in your intellectual wellbeing is all about pursuing meaningful activates that promote growth in your knowledge and skills.

What you can do:

  • Journal, read or write poetry

  • Learn a new skill

  • Get creative

  • Research something that interests you.

Investing in your intellect shouldn't be tiresome but stimulating!


We all know we're meant to exercise three times a week for at least 30-40 minutes, however sometimes this can be a challenge! Investing in your physical health is all about just getting moving! A workout can be helpful, as can a walk, a dance or a skip! There are many ways to be physically active, the main thing is to just give something a try. Your body naturally rewards you when you work out with feel good hormones like endorphins so doing anything that contracts your muscles is helpful!

What you can do:

  • Go for a walk,

  • Do a at home workout (YouTube is a great resources)

  • Gentle stretching

  • Put on some music and dance


I love how much our environment can teach us, whether you’re a plant parent or not, you get the vibes, plants need particular things to grow and to flourish, and SO DO YOU!

Like plants we too need some essentials to grow, so here are some areas to check in on when it comes to your environment:

  • AIR: can you breathe, relax and enjoy your space?

  • LIGHT: are you literally getting outside and seeing daylight? Are you energised or drained?

  • NUTRIENTS: are you looking after yourself? Are you getting all the good things that help you grow

  • WATER: Are you literally staying hydrated (honestly, drink some water after reading this). Are you investing in yourself? Filling up your cup with this that promote your own well-being

  • SPACE TO GROW: are you allowing time and space for yourself to rest and be stretched.


This isn't about how much money you have, but how you view it and use it. Financial stress can take a huge toll on all those it impacts, however you can be financially well, whether you have millions in the bank or not.

Money is a part of our life and culture, so it is helpful to think about how you view money. Some questions to consider:

  • How do you view money?

  • How often are you stressed about money?

  • What do you need to put in place to better manage your finances or cash flow? Is it worthwhile investing in seeing a financial advisor? Implementing a budget? Get better at communicating about money with your partner or family?


If you could be paid to do anything in the world, what would you do?

It can be common for people not to enjoy their work, but still get satisfaction out of their occupation because of who they work with or what they do for work. There are many things that can frustrate our workday, so again, some things to consider:

  • Is my current work environment sustainable?

  • What is keeping me at my current employment?

  • What would have to happen to make me want to leave, change or do something else?

  • How can I make my current situation work better for me and suit my needs?


How healthy are your relationships?

Your social wellbeing is about developing meaningful relationships with others, but also, allowing yourself to show up in an authentic and meaningful way.

So, some questions to consider!

  • How are my relationships at the moment?

  • Who is investing in me?

  • Who should I invest in more?

  • In what relationships can I be my most authentic self?

  • What prevents me from being my most authentic self?

  • Who are the people that lift me up?

  • Who are the people I’m finding draining?

There are many parts that
work together to
make you, YOU!
