Making a difference
Values are the things that are important to us.
Values are the core of who we are, the foundation of our lives. They are the deeply held principles that guide our choices and influence our emotions every day.
Living our lives aligned to our values enhances our wellbeing. When we are out of alignment, our wellbeing suffers.
World Values Day is 17 October 2019
The main theme for this year’s World Values Day is Values and Wellbeing. It is an opportunity to think about our most deeply held values and to act on them. Staying true to our values is essential for our own wellbeing and helps the wellbeing of those around us.
Values are the things that are important to us, so when we live our lives by our values, we feel great. Values are the core of who we are and how we prioritise our values gives us our uniqueness. They are our inspiration, our motivators, the passion in our hearts and the reason why we do the things we do. What will you be inspired to do this World Values Day?
Take a Values Break!
We can all find a few minutes to do something important, so for this World Values Day, take a ‘Values Break’, think about your values and decide on one value that you could live more effectively, to support your wellbeing. Give it a try, it will put a smile on your face and on the faces of those around you.
