What do we mean when we talk about well being?

Graphic in the shape of an egg outlining Bishop's strategic plan

 A state of being associated with high life satisfaction, a sense of purpose, and ability to manage life’s ups and downs. It allows one to develop their potential, work productively and creatively, form positive relationships with others and themselves, and contribute meaningfully to society. 

At Bishop’s, there are four components to well-being for students:

  • Emotional stability and satisfaction
  • Meaningful relationships and connection
  • Physical health and wellness
  • Spiritual belief by which we mean a connection to something greater than oneself, and that helps guide one’s actions to align with their morals, beliefs and values
