Scientific & social research development has led to an introduction of a more preventive rather than treatment measures. One of these preventive measures is the promotion of holistic wellbeing. Interestingly, the measurement of individual wellbeing is a good measure of the enjoyment citizens have in their life.
Well-being is a positive outcome that is meaningful for people and for many sectors of society because it tells us that people perceive that their lives are going well. Good living conditions (e.g., housing, employment) are fundamental to well-being. Tracking these conditions is important for public policy. However, many indicators that measure living conditions fail to measure what people think and feel about their lives, such as the quality of their relationships, their positive emotions and resilience, the realization of their potential, or their overall satisfaction with life—i.e., their “well-being.”Well-being generally includes global judgments of life satisfaction and feelings ranging from depression to joy.
