Wellbeing means ‘being well’. So what does that mean?

Inspire is delighted to have teamed up with Expat Life magazine to bring you more great content to do with Thailand

Christopher Nicholls is the Master of Wellington College Bangkok, by far the most beautiful, peaceful and naturally wellbeing-focused school in the city. Who better to discuss this important topic: Wellington College created the UK’s first Wellbeing classes, back in 2006, and still leads the way across the world.

Waking up on Monday morning and actually wanting to do the things you have to do. Being excited by the prospect of what is ahead – in the moment and long-term. Having a sense of fulfilment generated by what you are doing or experiencing. These are some of the descriptors for personal wellbeing. It’s easy to write them down but it can be very difficult to achieve them in real life. Why is that? It’s partly because most of us (I admit – including me) tend to numb ourselves with foolish yet somehow comforting negative attitudes. ‘I can’t do anything before I’ve had my first cup of coffee of the day’; ‘I work to live, not the other way round’; ‘my rage keeps me sane’. That sort of nonsense. So try not drinking coffee; find something to love about your job; remember that anger is a negative emotion.

Those of us who are parents or teachers don’t just poison ourselves in this way, though: we also damage our children. Being a key adult in the life of a child might or might not make you a role model to them – but we are more than that anyway: we provide the norms, for thought and behaviour, that children will accept unconditionally. So it is the job of parents and teachers to work together to create the ideal conditions, the ideal frameworks, for children’s wellbeing. Let’s assume that home provides a great model. How can school help children to flourish in their lives?
