What is well-being?

According to Mason's Center for the Advancement of Well-Being, we define well-being as building a life of vitality, purpose, resilience and engagement. In this initiative, we will be exploring six (6) types (or areas) of well-being: emotional/spiritual; environmental or place; financial; occupational; physical; and social.

What is the business of well-being?

Providing well-being in these six areas takes place in a range of industries including fitness, travel, food, green building, and self-care, as well as employee wellness programs, apps and other services for individuals, organizations and society.
