Product Details

Much of what we think will improve our wellbeing is either misguided or just plain wrong.

Contrary to what many people believe, wellbeing isn't just about being happy. Nor is it only about being wealthy or successful. And it's 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.

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.

Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements provides you with a holistic view of what contributes to your wellbeing over a lifetime.

The Five Essential Elements

Gallup's comprehensive study of people in more than 150 countries revealed five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives:

  • Career Wellbeing: liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals
  • Social Wellbeing: having supportive relationships and love in your life
  • Financial Wellbeing: managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security
  • Physical Wellbeing: having good health and enough energy to get things done daily
  • Community Wellbeing: liking where you live, feeling safe and having pride in your community

Written in a conversational style, this New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the five essential elements of wellbeing?

As part of ongoing research, Gallup conducted a comprehensive global study of more than 150 countries, giving us a lens into the wellbeing of more than 98% of the world’s population. We asked hundreds of questions about health, wealth, relationships, jobs and communities.

Upon completion of the research, five distinct statistical factors emerged. These are the universal elements of wellbeing that differentiate a thriving life from one spent suffering. They describe aspects of our lives that we can do something about and that are important to people in every situation we studied. They are:

  • Career Wellbeing: liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals
  • Social Wellbeing: having supportive relationships and love in your life
  • Financial Wellbeing: managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security
  • Physical Wellbeing: having good health and enough energy to get things done daily
