"Positive Mental Wellbeing - The Foundation for a Flourishing Life" by Health Promotion Board, 5 May 2020, healthhub.sg/live-healthy.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page! This means you care about good mental wellbeing, which is the foundation for a flourishing, satisfying, and happy life.
Positive mental wellbeing is a set of life skills that help us meet life’s challenges, make positive connections with others, and live life fully. It also allows us to feel good and function well, even in difficult situations. Without positive mental wellbeing, people may live unhappy lives, not knowing how to use their own strengths and the resources around them to live life optimally.
Of course, everyone finds themselves in difficult situations that may sometimes feel overwhelming. But having good mental wellbeing means that a person would not only have the ability to flourish when life is going well, but also be able to find the appropriate resources to cope when times are tough.
The MWB Scale measures five dimensions of mental wellbeing. These five dimensions not only enhance the quality of your daily life, but also help you to face challenges that will come your way.
