November Wellbeing Forum
17 November @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The ‘Wellbeing Forum: Supporting Wellbeing Champions’ is the first element of ChaplaincyPlus’s Birmingham Wellbeing Alliance to launch in the Birmingham business community. The forum gives wellbeing champions the opportunity to reflect, learn, and talk with others.
This month’s theme is wellbeing backpack – what’s in yours?
Let’s consider our life experiences as though we are on a journey. How do we equip ourselves and others for the ups and downs ahead? Before we start out on a journey there are a number of things to consider when packing for it. What am I going to take? What is essential and what can I leave behind? What provisions can I get along the way?
Wellbeing practices and tools are a bit like the toothbrush. We all know the old saying prevention is better than cure. The toothbrush is a great light, simple tool. It’s not as effective, if you don’t use it or you’re lacking some of its compliments like toothpaste.
Practices like connection, curiosity, being active, learning and giving can also be great little toothbrushes for including in our pack to help us on the journey for the long term as well as the short term. If we can establish a small daily routine of practice, like brushing our teeth, this will not only save us a lot of money in dental care but also a lot of pain, we’ll also look better and be more comfortable for others to be around.
Come and join us while we unpack what you might like to take or leave behind in your backpack for your wellbeing journey into the future.
