1.1 What is well-being?
When people talk about emotional health and well-being, do they mean happiness? Or confidence levels? Or feeling content?
The answer probably includes an element of all those things but a good starting point is to imagine it’s a feeling of being able to do all that you want to do.
It is often our emotional or mental well-being that has the biggest effect on feeling well, and the stresses and problems of everyday life, including loneliness and isolation, working long hours and not feeling supported, have a big impact on our mental well-being.
