As you know I have just started thinking about my next photo book: Photography for Well-Being. I have some ideas for its structure, format and purpose, and I also have created the outlines of 20+ photography activities designed to enhance your well-being and also hone your photography skills.
This is all great, however maybe I have got a little ahead of myself? This morning I have taken a step back and done a little research online about what well-being is. I do now have a very clear idea and some key elements that contribute to our well-being. I could share them right now, but instead I would really like you to contribute first.
If I provide the definition of well-being I would be fascinated to hear back from you about anything you feel contributes to your well-being. Anything and everything. You can send back your thoughts in the comments below, link to the FB post or use the contact page. Whatever suits you.
Definitions of Well-Being
“A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterised by health, happiness and prosperity.” Dictionary.com
“Well-Being is the experience of health, happiness, and prosperity. I includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction and a sense of meaning or purpose. More generally, well-being is just feeling well” From Psychology Today
So what are the things that make you feel well? I would love to know. Your answers will help to shape the photography activities I create and will therefore be helping others. Every contributor will get a mention in my book! I look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts. Thank you.
PS I will be sharing mine tomorrow. By the way, the photos are from my first walk out in the fresh air, away from hospital influences!
