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!

This World Values Day, find a few minutes to do something important by taking a ‘Values Break’.  Take some time to think about your values and decide on one value that you could live more effectively in your daily life, to support your wellbeing.  Give it a try, it will make you smile and hopefully those around you too!

Take a Values Break

Find a few minutes to wind down, clear your mind and think about the values that are important to you.

Remember, living your life in line with your values improves your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

l

Choose a Value

Identify a value that is really important to you and reflect on whether you are really living that value, both in relation to yourself and to others.

For help on this, have a look at our Take a Values Break Guide.

Take an Action

Think of a way to put that value into action and make it a bigger part of your life; this will have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Keep it as simple and practical as you can.

For some ideas, please see our Take a Values Break Guide.
