Promote well-being?  Tell me how

Joanna Choukeir Hojeily via Uscreates posted this July 15, 2014

For those who have been asking, here’s more info about the recent launch of our Wheel of Well-being website!

The Wheel of Well-being (WoW for short) was born out of research evidencing that certain actions, and habits can improve mood, reduce risk of depression, strengthen our relationships, keep us emotionally and physically healthy, and ultimately lengthen our lives.

WoW is a framework designed to translate theory into positive practice to build more flourishing communities.

Just launched: A new tool to promote well-being

We are very proud to announce the launch of the Wheel of Well-being website:

www.WheelOfWellbeing.org

 

 

The Wheel of Well-being framework is the result of our ongoing partnership with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) dating back to 2007.

“ Since 2007, the brilliant team at Uscreates has been impressing us with their creative energy, collaborative ethos, deep understanding and enthusiasm for our work.

They’ve been instrumental in the evolution of the Wheel of Well-being: scoping out projects, designing strategies, and most importantly, opening our minds to new ways of working together to create maximum social impact. ”

Sherry Clark, Research & Development, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

At the heart of the WoW framework is the WoW website, an interactive platform providing inspiration for everyone who is interested in improving their own or their community’s well-being.

The website shares tools, resources, and intervention ideas that we have been crowd-sourcing, developing and piloting with SLaM over the past 6 years.

For example, the DIY Happiness pop-up game gets people talking about well-being at community events, and the Happier at Work programme tailors interventions that improve well-being at an individual, team and organisational level.

The website is divided into three sections:

WoW Yourself – For people to contribute with well-being tips and places, create their personalised well-being checklist and track their own well-being.

WoW Your Community – For people working in the public, private or voluntary sector, to access free practical tools and ideas for improving well-being in organisations, workplaces and local communities.

WoW Strategy – For people involved in policy development and local government, to access a transferable well-being strategy. This section is a work-in-progress.

We at Uscreates hope that you will enjoy the Wheel of Well-being website and that you will use it as a resource to make yourself and the people you influence happier.
