This article explores how the pursuit of wellness has become a global trend, yet paradoxically may lead to negative consequences such as anxiety and stress. The article questions the efficacy and sustainability of the wellness industry and argues for a more holistic approach to wellbeing.


Steven James Jackson, Marcelle Dawson, and Michael Sam writing in the Conversation make the following points:
  • The term' wellbeing' means different things in different contexts—happiness, quality of life, life satisfaction, human flourishing, mindfulness and 'wellness'.
  • The World Health Organization's WHO-5 Index measures people's subjective wellbeing regarding cheerfulness, calmness, vigour, restfulness and fulfilment.
  • 'Wellbeing' can be used to advance an individual's interests at the expense of others.
