Celebrate World Values Day 2019
Today (17th October) is World Values Day and this year’s theme is Values and Wellbeing.
The annual #worldvaluesday campaign has grown massively since it started in 2016, now
reaching more than 60 million people in over 100 countries around the globe, with activities ranging from large conferences and organised events to countless individual and collective acts of kindness and humanity.
The ethos of World Values Day is simple. When people are aware of their core values and work to live in alignment with them, it has a positive impact on the world around us. Our values guide and shape our lives. When we live in alignment with them, we feel good about ourselves and we are happier, more purposeful, more fulfilled. If we override them or they are challenged, we get stressed and unhappy. In other words, they are the drivers of our wellbeing – our mental and emotional wellbeing, and to an extent even our physical wellbeing.
So how can you get involved in World Values Day?
In-line with the theme of values and wellbeing, the main call to action this year is simply
to take a ‘Values Break’. Here’s how:
1. Find a few minutes to wind down, clear your mind and think about the values that are important to you and your wellbeing. You might like to Take our FREE online Personal Values Assessment (PVA) to take an in-depth look at your top values. 2. Identify a value that is really important to you and reflect on whether you are really living that value, both in relation to yourself and to others. 3. Think of a way to put that value into action and make it a bigger part of your life. Keep it as simple and practical as you can.
There is a great Take a Values Break Guide and plenty more tips and ideas available on other ways you and your workplace can get involved on the World Values Day website. There is something for everyone to do to bring their own most important value to life and help the world to become a healthier and happier place.
