Much of what we think will improve our well-being is either misguided or just plain wrong. Contrary to what many people believe, well-being isn't just about being happy. Nor is it only about being wealthy or successful. And it’s certainly not limited to physical health and wellness. In fact, focusing on any of these elements in isolation may drive us to frustration and even a sense of failure.

Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements provides a holistic view of what contributes to your well-being over a lifetime. This book is filled with fascinating research and novel ideas for boosting your well-being in each of five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives.

This New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller helps you understand what makes life worthwhile. This will enable you to enjoy each day and get more out of your life – and perhaps most importantly, boost the well-being of your friends, family members, colleagues, and others in your community.
