In today’s fast-paced world, our mental and spiritual health is just as important as our physical health. This is where the concept of “wellbeing” comes in. Wellbeing is a term that refers to an individual’s overall quality of life and satisfaction. It encompasses a state of balance consisting of physical, mental, emotional and social components and is related to how a person feels in the key areas that shape his or her life.
The term “wellbeing” is synonymous with the daily choices we make to achieve balance in our physical, mental and spiritual bodies, the three main bodies we have, as well as in our professional, financial, social and environmental lives, according to GALLUP’s 2010 Wellbeing Survey, which covers 98% of the world’s population. It is a comprehensive term that expresses the establishment of a balance in a timely manner and includes all wellness and preventive medicine practices under its umbrella.
According to the data published by the TIME magazine 2030 Committee in February 2021, the period 2021-2030 will determine whether the planet will be suitable for human settlement and the 6 main pillars that will save the planet and all humanity in this process are Innovation, Equality, Sustainability, Economy, Leadership and Wellbeing. It is described as.
As investment in people is also seen as an investment in the core values of organisations, wellbeing practices that ensure work-life balance in organisations have rapidly grown in importance. According to research conducted by GALLUP, companies that integrate a corporate wellbeing culture into their business and invest in wellbeing practices have found that 27% of employees are more productive, employee loyalty increases by 35%, there is 70% less absenteeism and 54% less turnover. It is emphasised that these factors make a significant contribution to profitability, loyalty and growth.
The concept of wellbeing, which has been enthusiastically embraced over the last 25 years, particularly in the US, UK and Australia, has begun to be rapidly adopted by global brands in a pandemic process. While all brands are rapidly redirecting their R&D efforts in this direction, they have also begun to undertake inspiring social responsibility projects and integrate this issue, which is being described as a new lifestyle, into their corporate cultures.
Wellbeing in short; in addition to our physical, mental and spiritual body health and balance, it literally refers to a balanced and harmonious life in our business life, social life, financial situation and the social environment in which we live and can be defined as “Holistic Health, Happiness and Wellbeing”.
Our overall quality of life is the clearest indicator of our state of well-being. According to the science of epigenetics and ancient sciences, our lifestyle is the most important determinant of health, mind-body balance and well-being. So being better and happier depends on the seemingly insignificant choices we make on a daily basis.
