What affects our wellbeing?
Wellbeing, put simply, is about ‘how we are doing’ as individuals, communities and as a nation. Improving wellbeing is a key measure of success, something for us all to aim for, now and for the future.
We can now be more specific about which factors matter for us to thrive. Current evidence on the relationships between different aspects of our lives and individual wellbeing outcomes means we can identify categories that have the greatest impact. As individuals, we can distinguish between external factors that affect our lives, and our own internal psychological needs.
