The Values Challenge for Individuals
One Hour, One Value, One Change
Values are the things that are important to us, the foundation of our lives. They are deeply held principles that guide our choices and behaviours and influence our emotions. Values are the core of who we are. They are our motivators, our drivers, the passion in our hearts and the reason why we do the things we do.
We all want to feel good. Yet the strong connection between values and wellbeing is under-appreciated. When we are not aligned with our values, our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others will suffer. However, when we are clear about our values and live our lives in accordance with them, we feel great and are empowered to help others too.
World Values Day challenges us to think about our most important values and to act on them. This year our focus is on putting our values into action to benefit our wellbeing. By putting them into action each and every day we will improve our own wellbeing, the wellbeing of communities we belong to, and the wellbeing of the whole world. The challenge is to:
- Think about the values that are important to you and your wellbeing.
- 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.
- Think of a way to put that value into action and make it a bigger part of your life. Keep it as simple and practical as you can.
- Then tell the world! Share on social with #WorldValuesDay – use images, gifs, or take a selfie with our pre-made template during or after the action.
If you would like to learn more about how to identify the values that are most important to you, or if you would like to have some ideas about how you might put those important values into action and so support your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around you, please have a look at our Values Guide for Individuals.
