Our values act like a life compass, helping us to navigate tricky waters, and influencing how we respond to our surroundings. They might include: telling the truth, being kind or helping others.
Identify what’s important to you
Being clear about what your values are, and living by them on a daily basis, plays a big part in your wellbeing. This is because you feel better about your place in the world when your actions match them.
The pandemic has left many in uncertain situations, and you might have had to rethink your own values along the way: should you work for free, for example, or take on work you don’t fundamentally agree with?
See where you can be truer to your values
Making these types of decisions can be tough, but try to identify three of your biggest values, and consider what changes (big or small) you can make to live by these more fully.
