The World Health Organization’s describes well being as the state in which an individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. Another term closely related to well being is Quality of Life. Researchers at the University of Toronto’s Quality of Life Research Unit define quality of life as “The degree to which a person enjoys the important possibilities of his or her life”. Their Quality of Life Model examines how one is connected to one’s environment, and whether one achieves one’s personal goals, hopes, and aspirations. Increased Well Being and Quality of Life both contribute to upward spirals in increasing coping ability, self-esteem, performance and productivity at work, and even longevity.
