Well-being is more than happiness and life satisfaction, it is also about dreaming big, having a sense of purpose in life. 

What is well-being?

Well-being has been defined as a multiple of feeling good and functioning well; the experiencing positive emotions such as happiness and fulfilment as well as the growth of one’s potential, having sense of control over one’s life, having a sense of purpose, and fully experiencing relationships. It is a sustainable condition that allows the individual or population to develop and thrive. The term subjective well-being is goes hand in hand with positive mental health. The World Health Organisation defines positive mental health as “a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community”. This conceptualisation of well-being goes beyond the absence of mental ill health, encompassing the perception that life is going well.

Well-being has been tied to a happy and successful life work-wise, personal, and interpersonal levels, studies have shown that people scoring high in well-being tend to live a more productive life professionally and are open to new ideas and effective at learning new things, has enhanced sense of creativity and contribute positively in personnel and professional relationships.
