When we think of wellbeing, many of us think about physical health and happiness, but the idea of wellbeing is evolving to have a much broader meaning. While it will always include happiness and physical health, the idea of well-being includes many other things such as our sense of purpose, how satisfied we are with our lives, our jobs, and even the choices we are able to make.
Our overall wellbeing is influenced by many factors including living conditions, education, social acceptance and participation, access to economic resources, family dynamics, work-life balance, and community connectedness. As different factors influence our well-being, the definition of good wellbeing is personal and defined on an individual level. There is no one-size-fits-all path to good emotional health and wellbeing.
Over the last year, many of us have been pushed to our physical, mental, emotional, and financial limits and we question how to improve this overall well-being as we adjust back to normalcy and strive for balance in our lives. The East West Family of Companies has many tools available to you to assist in your journey to better wellbeing.
