You’ve probably heard the term “well-being,” but what does it really mean, and why is it so important?

Those questions and more are answered in the first episode of The Parent Pep Talk, a new podcast from Safe Kids Worldwide. In it, Dr. Beth Cabrera, author of Beyond Happy: Women, Work, and Well-Being, explains how focusing on well-being is an important step to raising happy kids and offers some simple strategies to get you started.

It turns out well-being is about more than just eating superfoods and doing yoga. Well-being has to do with your mental health, and having a happy, fulfilling life. Well-being is about noticing the positive rather than the negative and focusing more on the good. It’s about being present and mindful and doing things that contribute to your happiness.

Unsurprisingly, focusing on your well-being will help you be a better parent, allowing you to give more of yourself to your children, and be more present when you’re with them.

Focusing on well-being benefits kids too, by teaching them that they can find happiness despite adverse circumstances or events beyond their control.  

To learn more about well-being and how to incorporate it into your family’s day-to-day routine and other topics important to parents, listen to the Parent Pep Talk podcast below from Safe Kids Worldwide.

The Parent Pep Talk is a heartfelt and humorous podcast filled with well-tested tips from experts, parents and kids. It’s for parents who want the truth – that parenting can be tough and even stressful at times, but it’s better when we learn from each other, support each other and realize that we’re not alone.
