Health & Well-being
Health & Well-being is an integral part of our emotional, mental, social, environmental and spiritual self-care.
Although definitions vary – and some feel that it is hard to define – there is broad agreement that well-being refers to the quality of people’s lives. It is about how well we are, and how our lives are going.
Well-being may be best thought of as an umbrella term that can be measured via ‘baskets’ of indicators that together build up a picture of the quality of people’s lives. In this sense, measuring well-being can involve both ‘objective’ indicators – e.g. measures of health, education and poverty – and ‘subjective’ ones – people’s own assessments of how their lives are going.
