Well-being was frequently talked about before the recent pandemic but now, as we enter the post-Covid world, wellness and mental health are on everyone’s mind.
But what is well-being and how do we define it? What one person feels is their perfect state of well-being may be completely different from another person. This stands to reason as we all are individuals with different and diverse personalities, goals, ambitions and needs.
We also know that the spaces and buildings in which we live, work, learn and relax we can have a positive or negative impact on our health, well-being and productivity. How then do we design places for all?
But what if we consider the premise that without good health (physical & mental) can well-being truly exist? Where does that leave us?
There are some common sense and practical steps we can all take when considering our options and these shift the conversation to a more human-centric and health focused solution.
Using the Well Building Standard as a template allows us to take a more holistic and tailored approach. Finding options and solutions that suit both building and client more closely.
