The ‘m’ stands for meaning. Dr Martin Seligman, cited in the first of these reflections, wrote of the importance of ‘belonging to or serving something that is bigger than yourself’ as being crucial to a positive sense of wellbeing. This is why belonging to clubs, serving the community through – for example - volunteering, being involved in a Church or youth group, playing sport for a team, being in an orchestra, are all really good ways of improving our sense of wellbeing. A sense of belonging is a key mental health concept and finding areas where we can use our strengths, share our values and find a purpose are really important for us. Another good way of cultivating a sense of meaning is by intentionally doing something good for someone else. Conscious acts of kindness can be a really good way of generating positive wellbeing. In the run up to Christmas, I signed up to the Bible Society’s ‘Advent Challenge’ which sent you a task to try to attempt each day – it may have been buying a coffee for someone who was homeless, considering a donation to a charity, paying someone a compliment or even being a courteous driver. It was interesting to note how much I really did look forward to those emails first thing in the morning!
