Wellbeing is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.” However, it is important to realise that wellbeing is a much broader concept than moment-to-moment happiness. While it does includes happiness, it also includes other things, such as how satisfied people are with their life a whole, their sense of purpose, and how in control they feel.


We at TED thought it might be quite nice to create a wellbeing challenge that you could do at home. Each day there will be a choice of two activities, you can pick which you prefer, the one that is most challenging for yourself or you could even do both of them.

If you would like to share which of the challenges you have been doing please share on social media with #TEDWellbeing or email a comment (and picture if you would like) to ted@lincsymca.co.uk
