well-being... intro

How are you? A simple question that you will be asked whenever you meet people. Actually, it is the first question people asked. Whether they are asking because they really have your well-being in mind or just common courtesy, your answer is more important to you than to them regardless of what those answers may be. Why? Because only you would know how exactly are you feeling. Because only you would be able to do something about it if you are not at your best.

Frankly, not many would stop and think about their own well-being unless something happened, either to them or to someone they know. We like to think of ourselves as 'indestructible' until something happened, either physically, mentally or spiritually. Thus we often "abuse" and misuse our body and mind thinking that 'bad things' wouldn't happen to us.

From, well-being is defined as "a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; " while Wikipedia has a slightly different one. One thing is for sure, well-being is NOT just about health, although good physical shape is an important part of it. In the future, I am going to look into different aspects of our lives that constitute our 'well-being' and share some of my thoughts about them.
