A new study found that lifestyle and personality choices can promote well-being, which includes feeling good and functioning well.
Well-being is highly valued, and it encompasses feeling good and functioning well. It is linked to physical health, creativity, and longevity. Mental well-being is composed of two components: hedonic well-being, which includes happiness and life satisfaction, and eudaimonic well-being, which involves autonomy and purpose. Optimal mental functioning is associated with high levels of well-being. To cultivate more well-being in our lives, we can adopt certain lifestyle choices and personality traits. A recent study published in Scientific Reports investigated predictors of well-being to identify the factors that can increase mental well-being. By understanding these factors, we can take control of our mental well-being and improve it.
