A compelling body of international evidence links our happiness with longer and more fullfilling lives, better mental and physical health, stronger relationships and a range of other psychological, social and economic benefits. The team behind the Wheel of Well-being have developed an approach that moves away from mental ill health, towards a focus on positive mental health and wellbeing as something that will benefit all; staff, communities and organisations.
The Wheel of Well-being
The wheel of well-being (WoW) has been developed over 8 years with communities and organisations to shape new ways to improve well-being. WoW is based on 6 universal aspects of well-being: body, mind, spirit, people, place, planet and incorporates the Five Ways of Wellbeing. WoW is made accessible through a unique, colourful brand and visual style which engages people around the subject of living happier lives.
