Well-Being NL

This coming week is Well-Being Week in NL and there are quite a few Events happening all over the Province, some I plan on getting involved in! I am excited to see what will come out of this initiative.

It is easy to see that the Provincial Government here in NL cares…

This is a very positive thing for this Province and I do believe in time we will achieve our goals. My well-being is doing fantastic these days as I have safe housing, good food, and clean water, I have enough money to meet my needs, and I experience equity, social connections, and a sense of safety I have found nowhere else.

Newfoundland and Labrador is unique and like nowhere else I have lived in my lifetime. There is a peace here you can feel, just sit out in Nature and you will find it as I have.

Newfoundland and Labrador is focused on building awareness and action to influence social factors on health outcomes and quality of life.

Well-being is an overall positive quality of life where an individual’s needs are met across many aspects, including physical, mental, social, economic, and environmental.

Social determinants are major contributors to our health. They include:

  • Access to safe housing, good food and clean water;
  • A justice system that protects us;
  • Money;
  • Quality education; as well as
  • Our experience of equity, social connection and safety.

This is a long-term goal, and the work to achieve this goal needs to begin now. This relies upon governments, communities, groups, businesses, and organizations to incorporate a well-being approach in their policies and programs, and for individuals to discover how well-being applies to them.

WellBeing Week

Well-Being Week is a time to learn, engage, support and take action around the many factors that impact our health and quality of life. It’s a week to build momentum and empower people to continue making meaningful steps to better our well-being today, tomorrow and beyond.

We can all play a role in improving health and well-being across the province. Well-Being Week is an opportunity for individuals, families, communities, groups, businesses, organizations, and governments to kick-off this long-term goal. The best time to start is now.
