What Wellbeing Means & Why It Matters

Wellbeing is one of those nebulous terms we hear a lot of in popular culture. So what the hell do we mean by wellbeing?

It’s not happiness, that elusive butterfly. Wellbeing goes deeper than that. Wellbeing is when you can trust that your basic physical, mental and social needs are and will be met. More than this, it extends to feeling a sense of personal fulfilment and meaning. Meaning is key.
