What is Wellbeing?

Good health is essential for wellbeing.

Wellbeing is feeling good and functioning well. It includes an individual’s experience of their life and how they compare their circumstances with social norms and values.

Health is a spectrum with illness at one end (negative pole) and wellbeing at the positive end. Wellbeing is intrinsically holistic. The practitioners at Torus Wellbeing Clinic understand that as humans our physical-mental/emotional-spiritual-social systems are in a dynamic state of balance and stressful experiences such as bereavements, accidents, surgeries, emotional or physical trauma, toxicity and other environmental factors can influence us.

Fostering wellbeing enables resilience to cope with life’s challenges. It brings an awareness of self, others and our wider community. Feelings of joy, happiness and having a greater sense of purpose are experiences of wellbeing.
