Invest In This Five Areas For Your Total Well Being
1. Career Wellbeing: That is simply liking what you do every day.
The authors discovered that those with high Career Wellbeing were more than twice as likely to be thriving in their life overall, making it the most important of the five factors. Which is understandable given that we spend more time at our workstations than at home or with our friends and family. As a result, you might wish to make job happiness a priority this year. Those who have mastered career wellbeing have something to look forward to every morning, have the opportunity to do things that match their abilities and interests, and feel they have a profound purpose in life and a plan to achieve their objectives. They’ve also perfected work-life balance, devoting more time to things other than work.
2. Social Wellbeing: Having strong relationships and love in your life.
Our social circles have a significant impact on our general health and happiness. Yes, we’re advising you that spending more time with your buddies is an excellent resolve. The authors discovered that people who score high on Social Wellbeing have several close relationships that help them achieve goals, enjoy life, and stay healthy; they intentionally invest time in the networks that surround them; they’re more likely to schedule vacations and social gatherings with friends and family, which strengthens their bonds; and they report having a lot of love in their lives, which gives them a positive outlook.
Employees who have a best buddy at work are seven times more likely to be engaged with their job, create higher-quality work, and are less likely to be hurt on the job, according to the authors. Those without a work best friend have a one in 12 probability of getting engaged.
3. Financial Wellbeing: Effectively managing your economic life.
When it comes to happiness, it appears that financial security, not a large amount in your savings account, is the most important factor. Those who have a high level of Financial Wellbeing have good financial management skills, spend their money wisely, acquire experiences rather than material objects, and give to others rather than spending on themselves. These tactics provide financial security, removing everyday stress and worry about debt, as well as some degree of freedom to do what they want, which contributes to social welfare by allowing them to spend time with others.
4. Physical Wellbeing: Having good health and enough energy to get things done on a daily basis.
Those with high Physical Wellbeing have mastered the healthful habits that doctors, Google searches, and our mothers have drilled into us. They exercise, eat well, and sleep well, all of which increase their vitality and productivity. While taking care of our health has clear benefits in terms of how we feel and function on a daily basis, committing to healthy habits has less evident implications for all other aspects of our well-being. A healthy lifestyle gives us the tools we need to improve relationships and interact with our communities, gives us the energy we need to participate in a rewarding work, and saves us money over time, ensuring our financial security.
5. Community Wellbeing: The sense of engagement you have with the area where you live.
To achieve Neighborhood Wellbeing on a basic level, we require safety, a home that satisfies our needs (as opposed to your first apartment with no heat or hot water), and a community in which we take pride. People are more likely to want to give back and make a lasting contribution to society when this requirement is met. Altruism has a long history of being related to happiness. The researchers discovered that doing pleasant things for others gave more than 23,000 people an emotional lift. People with high Community Wellbeing make minor contributions at first, but they tend to become more involved with time.
