Good wellbeing is all about harmony between as many areas of our life as possible. Not easy when we work, have a family and a home to take care of.
How are you doing? Take a look at the Wheel of Life below. You’ll see an area of life – health and fitness, spirituality, hobbies, etc! Each component that contributes to our overall wellbeing.
How to use it…
- Take a moment to find a quiet spot (if you have one).
- Rate each of these areas of your life out of ten (ten is best)? 🤔
- What do you see?
- Fuller areas of the wheel show what is probably most important to you: if it is work, it may be a need for security driving you or a sense of purpose in what you do.
- If exercise is high, it may be that health or freedom is a top value for you.
But what about the lowest scores?
- What area’s get neglected in your life? Is it stuff that requires you to focus on you
- What areas of the wheel are the lowest? It can be that you simply don’t value those areas as highly right now – that’s fine! Life ebbs and flows, and we all have moments where certain areas of our lives become more important than others.
- What about low-scoring area’s that are important to you? Then you might want to take steps to re-balance that area.
How to make a change?
- Start by picking one area you genuinely want to improve upon.
- What are the 3 things you could be doing to improve that are of life?
- Are there things you know you could be doing in this area, that aren’t happening right now?
- What do you need to stop doing?
- What will happen if you don’t change things? What about if you do change things?
- What one action could you take everyday that would not take up too much time, and would take you in the direction you want to go in?
- Can you commit to that action?
- When will you start?
Once you identify the area and the things you could be doing, try to commit to doing that one activity, once a day for 15 mins. Starting small is a great way to build a habit towards more balanced wellbeing!

“You don’t have to improve everything 100% in one day. You just have to improve 1% per day, and you’ll see big changes for longer!” James Altucher’s 1% rule.
