Values-based Living is an ethically grounded approach to life. It raises awareness of ourselves and the positive universal values that are personal to us and that guide the way we live. It encourages us to develop our capacity to be ethically intelligent. This means that we do our best to consciously, ethically self-regulate our behaviour for the good of ourselves, others and our planet. We do this by choosing enhancing values such as integrity, courage, trust and responsibilty.
Our lives become enriched when we raise awareness of the values that are meaningful to us in a number of ways:
we become more self-aware, of our thoughts and actions, which translates naturally into different and emotionally healthier ways we live our lives
we form better relationships with others through connections which become deeper and more resonant
we become ethical role-models for our children, family, friends and work colleagues, contributing to a more cohesive society
