Wellbeing is not just the absence of disease or illness. It’s a complex combination of a person's physical, mental, emotional and social health factors. Wellbeing is strongly linked to happiness and life satisfaction. In short, wellbeing could be described as how you feel about yourself and your life.

Factors that influence wellbeing

Every aspect of your life influences your state of wellbeing. Researchers investigating happiness have found the following factors enhance a person's wellbeing:

Happy intimate relationship with a partner, network of close friends, enjoyable and fulfilling career, enough money, regular exercise, nutritional diet, enough sleep, spiritual or religious beliefs, fun hobbies and leisure pursuits, healthy self-esteem, optimistic outlook, realistic and achievable goals, sense of purpose and meaning, a sense of belonging, the ability to adapt to change, living in a fair and democratic society.
