Wellbeing (a state of wellness) is a force for life
The idea of maintaining a state of ‘wellness’ has been around for centuries in various forms. In modern times, it is often described as simply feeling good.
Wellbeing refers to a state of being healthy, happy, and comfortable, both physically and mentally. It encompasses a sense of contentment and satisfaction with your life, and a positive outlook on your personal and professional experiences. It is influenced by a range of factors, including physical health, social relationships, work-life balance, and personal values and beliefs. Maintaining and improving your ‘state of wellness’ is important for overall health and happiness.
There has been an increased interest from the world of science in the benefits of wellbeing, with a focus on how it can bring improved performance in the workplace. Not only does the health and wellbeing of employees directly correlate to higher levels of productivity and engagement, but it also helps to reduce absenteeism and staff turnover. The main concept in the workplace is simple – happier staff work smarter – and this ultimately makes almost any business more successful in the long term. Individual employee happiness can be affected by a huge number of factors including mental condition, work-life balance, family life, stress levels, tiredness, job satisfaction and many more.
