Most of us would acknowledge that work is good for us. Alongside that all-important income, our jobs give us a sense of purpose, identity, structure and valued friendships.

But what if the work begins to affect our well-being?

Firstly, what do we know as the meaning of well-being?

‘Well-being is about the combination of our love for what we do each day, the quality of our relationships, the security of our finances, the vibrancy of our physical health, and the pride we take in what we have contributed to our community. Most importantly, it is about how these five elements interact.’ Tom Rath

The definition of well-being, according to Wikipedia (Naci and Ioannidis): ‘Wellness refers to diverse and interconnected dimensions of physical, mental, and social well-being that extend beyond the traditional definition of health. It includes choices and activities aimed at achieving physical vitality, mental alacrity, social satisfaction, a sense of accomplishment, and personal fulfilment’.

Wellness is an approach to personal health that emphasises individual responsibilities for well-being through the practice of health-promoting lifestyle behaviours. Wellness is a pursuit of overall health in physical and mental matters.

The holistic model encompasses the physiological, mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and occupational aspects of individuals. The six dimensions include:  emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, social and physical wellness.
