This title shows the five most important elements of a life well-lived and how they are interdependent. Contrary to what many people believe, well-being isn't just about happiness. Nor is it about only wealth, success, or physical health. In fact, focusing on any one of these elements in isolation ends in frustration and a sense of failure. When Gallup researchers interviewed people around the world about their well-being, they discovered five elements that shape the way people evaluate their lives. "Well-Being" is the first book aimed at a general audience that shows the interconnections among those elements and how they cannot be considered independently. The book provides readers with a unique, research-based approach to improving well-being in all aspects of their lives. Written in a breezy, compelling style, "Well-Being" is sure to engage and provide useful and actionable insights to a wide variety of readers. Included with the book is a unique access code to the Well-Being Tracker, an online programme designed to help readers track their well-being.
