03 May How Values affect our Wellbeing.

Articulating our values is absolutely key towards getting real about what we want our life to look like. Values are what is most important to us. If we can define our values and then live in alignment with them then we will ultimately feel happier and more fulfilled. Sound a bit heavy? Stay with me…

Values really should determine our priorities. When the things that we do and the way we behave match our values, life is good, we feel satisfied and content. However with the hectic pace, complexities, competing priorities and demands of modern life we are finding we are more and more just getting by and choosing the path of least resistance. This can be a real source of unhappiness. That sick feeling when you know things just don’t sit right – we all know it and it’s not a nice feeling.

This is why making a conscious effort to identify and understand our values is so important. When we are aware of them, honour them and make decisions aligned with them – life is good and a hell of a lot easier.

I took some time out and got ‘real’ on my values about three years ago. A couple of my top values that I am happy to share with you are;

Family and Friends. Having connected, meaningful and authentic relationships with those closest to me is my priority.

Health and Wellness. To be the best version of me in body, mind and spirit is a commitment I make to myself every day.

I know my values inside out and I turn to them when I need to make decisions.

Do you know what your values are?

Can you clearly articulate what is most important to you?

You might like to use the following list of common personal values to help you get started; Aim for a top 5. Really ask yourself and get real on what is most important to you.

Acceptance Determination Health Reliability
Accomplishment Discipline Honesty Religion
Accountability Diversity Independence Respect
Achievement Empathy Integrity Responsibility
Ambition Enjoyment Intelligence Security
Assertiveness Enthusiasm Influence Self-Control
Balance Excellence Intuition Self-Respect
Belonging Excitement Joy Sensitivity
Calmness Expertise Leadership Service
Challenge Exploration Legacy Spirituality
Cheerfulness Faith Love Spontaneity
Commitment Family Loyalty Stability
Community Fitness Openness Structure
Compassion Focus Order Success
Contentment Freedom Originality Teamwork
Contribution Fun Perfection Travel
Control Generosity Positivity Thoughtfulness
Courage Gratitude Power Trust
Courtesy Growth Professionalism Understanding
Creativity Happiness Punctuality Vitality
Curiosity Hard Work Recognition Wealth

Identifying, understanding and recognising our values can be a challenging but really empowering exercise. It is who we are. If we can live our lives according to our values, we’ll make good decisions, feel more fulfilled and experience a much greater sense of wellbeing.

If you would like some support on getting clear on what you want your best life to look like get in touch, I’d love to help.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
