Living well means having a good quality of home life and a good work environment. Ancient practitioners of TCM believe five elements are required to give us a balanced living environment: “wood, earth, fire, water and metal”.
In Western terms, this means we need access to: fresh air, a reasonable amount of sunshine, water, energy and nature.
Whilst we cannot change the weather, we can influence the other factors necessary to ensure a good quality of life, for example, not wasting energy or water and protecting nature.
Happiness means feeling well, enjoying family life, friendships, work and social life, and other elements of daily living that are important to you.
In order to acknowledge and celebrate happiness in your daily life it is necessary to: have a good philosophy of life, a wise, mature, positive attitude and a love of life.
