What is well-being?

Well-being - It’s a word we hear on TV and radio ads, billboards, cereal boxes, the internet - it’s everywhere. And that’s because it’s important! But what exactly IS well-being? Here are a few definitions to get us thinking.

“The state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.” - Lexico Dictionary

“Well-being is the experience of health, happiness, and prosperity. It includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction, and a sense of meaning or purpose. More generally, well-being is just feeling well.” - Psychology Today

“Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community” - World Health Organisation

Well-being is personal, it’s a state of mind and a state of body, and while it is hard to measure, it can be improved upon with a bit of effort.
