Product description

This title shows the five most important elements of a life well-lived and how they are interdependent. Contrary to what many people believe, well-being isn't just about happiness. Nor is it about only wealth, success, or physical health. In fact, focusing on any one of these elements in isolation ends in frustration and a sense of failure. When Gallup researchers interviewed people around the world about their well-being, they discovered five elements that shape the way people evaluate their lives. "Well-Being" is the first book aimed at a general audience that shows the interconnections among those elements and how they cannot be considered independently. The book provides readers with a unique, research-based approach to improving well-being in all aspects of their lives. Written in a breezy, compelling style, "Well-Being" is sure to engage and provide useful and actionable insights to a wide variety of readers. Included with the book is a unique access code to the Well-Being Tracker, an online programme designed to help readers track their well-being.

When striving to improve our lives, we're quick to buy into programs that promise to help us make money, lose weight, or strengthen our relationships. While it might be easier to treat these critical areas in our lives as if they are independent, they're not. Gallup's comprehensive study of people in more than 150 countries revealed five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives: Career Wellbeing, Social Wellbeing, Financial Wellbeing, Physical Wellbeing, and Community Wellbeing. "Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements" provides you with a holistic view of what contributes to your wellbeing over a lifetime. Written in a conversational style by #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Tom Rath and bestselling author Jim Harter, Ph.D., this book is filled with fascinating research and innovative ideas for boosting your wellbeing in each of these five areas. As a complement to the book, you'll have the opportunity to use Gallup's online Wellbeing Finder to track and improve your wellbeing. By the time you finish reading this book, you'll have a better understanding of what makes life worthwhile. This will enable you to enjoy each day and get more out of your life -- while boosting the wellbeing of your friends, family members, colleagues, and others in your community.
