At Rural Alive & Well (RAW), we often use the analogy of a temperature gauge to explain the impact situational stressors have on our mental health and well-being.
The RAW Gauge© serves as a visual reminder to continually check where your ‘gauge’ might be sitting at. The colloquial phrases we’ve aligned to the temperature points provide a fun example of what words you may be using externally to indicate where you are at internally.
It's okay for your gauge to move up and down, but when you spend too much time between 250°C - 300°C, it's time to get in contact with RAW.
You can download the print out's directly at the end of this page, or get in touch with us for hard copies.
TAKE THE TEST
Below is an adaption of a more formal well-being test. It takes 2 minutes to do, but it will help you discover where you currently are on the "The Wellbeing Indicator" scale.
Answer questions truthfully, thinking of how you are feeling at this point.
We recommend leaving a two-week gap before repeating the test.
