Eight Guiding Principles to Boost Wellbeing in 2022

In this blog, certified coach Beverly Landais shares her top tips for boosting wellbeing, promoting personal growth and enriching relationships with others in 2022.

Reflecting on the last year and wondering what the future holds, I began thinking about what makes me strong, happy and fulfilled. I came up with eight guiding principles that boost my wellbeing and enrich my life. I’ve noted each to remind me and share these with you below. While I might not achieve all eight each day, I’ve noticed that I feel good about myself and my relationships with others when I apply these principles to my actions. 

  1. Move more. Go for a walk, have a luxurious stretch, breathe deeply and shake out any tension.

  2. Be clear about your needs and boundaries, then communicate these calmly and constructively.

  3. Spend more time with people who accept you as you are.  

  4. Be deliberate about how you focus your attention, energy and resources.

  5. Practise kindness towards yourself and others.

  6. Pause to notice what is working for you. Be grateful for the good things in life.

  7. Build on your strengths and work on weaknesses only to the point that they don’t hold you back.

  8. Each day, do one thing that helps create a positive environment at home and the workplace.

What are your guiding principles for living a good life? How do you motivate yourself to stay on course? Do drop me an email to share your tips, and I will feature these in my next blog.   

Wishing you and yours a Happy Healthy and Peaceful New Year.
