January 13 – Meeting Resource
The January 13th meeting of the Michigan Wellness Council featured the presentation “What is Wellbeing?” by Alexandra Paul of Humana and Carlos Mora PhD of University of Michigan Center for Positive Organization Scholarship . The wellness industry has moved from a focus on “wellness”, to now, focusing on “wellbeing”. So, what is wellbeing? There are many definitions of wellbeing in the marketplace, but most of them are consistent that it extends beyond just physical health and incorporates an individual’s mental, emotional, and social health as well. This presentation discussed the interrelatedness of each aspect of wellbeing, the impacts of each area on the workplace and how to support your employees in all aspects of their wellbeing.
