Values and Wellbeing

Values have been debated and discussed for centuries. Plato wrote about them and the Indian text The Bhagavad Gita written around 200 BC gives insight into the struggle to live a values-driven life.

The dark side of vacation and how our values guide us back home

Have you ever noticed that when you are on vacation a strange phenomenon can occur? Suddenly all the self-imposed rules go out the door. Permission to sleep in, permission to drink more, permission to eat whatever you like. Tick all those boxes.

Can the answer to managing our stress be found in our values?

The World Health Organization calls stress the “health epidemic of the 21st century.”  Stress is all around us; can you think of anyone who isn’t stressed at some point in their day?

What are Values for?

The first three World Values Days in 2016, 2017 and 2018 focused on values from an individual, an organisational, and a community point of view.  The vision of a special day focused on values really caught on, and on those days millions of people around the world reflected on their values and put them into practice a bit more than they might usually do.
