Well-being Resources

Well-being can be described as judging life positively and feeling good. It includes positive emotions (i.e. happiness and gratification), satisfaction with life, fulfillment and positive functioning in the absence of negative emotions (i.e. depression and anxiety).  It is fundamental to your overall health. It enables you to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what you want out of life. Past experiences, attitudes, and outlook can impact your sense of well being.

Health is a resource that allows you to realize your aspirations, satisfy your needs and to cope with the environment in order to live a long, productive, and fruitful life.

Although your heritable factors play an important part in your well being, environmental factors play an equally if not more important role. Environmental and social resources for health can include: peace, economic security, a stable environment, and safe housing. Individual resources for health can include: physical activity, healthful diet, social ties, resiliency, positive emotions, and autonomy. As such, activities designed to strengthen such individual, environmental and social resources eventually improve well-being.
