Mental wellbeing describes your mental state – how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life.

Our mental wellbeing is dynamic. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

If you have good mental wellbeing you are able to:

  • feel relatively confident in yourself and have positive self-esteem
  • feel and express a range of emotions
  • build and maintain good relationships with others
  • feel engaged with the world around you
  • live and work productively
  • cope with the stresses of daily life
  • adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty

Here are some ideas to stay mentally well and develop your ability to cope with the up and downs of life:

More than just a philosophy, or even a religion, Buddhism is a practical path of human development. Its goal is to see things as they really are, achieved by cultivating the mind in meditation and supported by leading a life of meaning and value.

The outcome of such radical transformation is a powerful altruistic urge and the energy, clarity and courage to make a real difference.

Buddhism is a whole vision for life – one that includes meditation, study, ritual, friendship and a deepening sense of purpose.

The Buddha (“Awakened One”) taught that life is characterized by dukkha, which means unsatisfactoriness, suffering or stress. Fortunately, he also taught that liberation from dukkha is possible for anyone who is willing to make the necessary effort.

The path to this liberation is what is meant by “Buddhism,” and those who walk on that path could call themselves “Buddhists.”

Throughout the world, historical and cultural differences have emerged over the centuries which, while sharing a common core, may differ to a lesser or greater extent in their ethical, philosophical and practical dimensions.

Kingfishers are small unmistakable bright blue and orange birds of slow moving or still water. They fly rapidly, low over water, and hunt fish from riverside perches, occasionally hovering above the water’s surface. They are vulnerable to hard winters and habitat degradation through pollution or unsympathetic management of watercourses. Kingfishers are amber listed because of their unfavourable conservation status in Europe. They are also listed as a Schedule 1 species under the Wildlife and Countryside Act offering them additional protection. (Extract from RSPB)
