The eight pathways explored in “The Road Map Towards a Transformational Well-Being Culture” are drawn from insights shared by the speakers in the Health to Wealth podcast. They are:

  1. Well-being in body and mind – The link between mental and physical well-being has been widely documented and these learnings are yielding innovative neuroscientific technology with psychological and physiological benefits.
  2. Measurement can optimize well-being – Governments, health organizations, and corporations are called upon to collect more comprehensive and meaningful health data and act on it to improve the numbers.
  3. Our well-being starts with our finances – With a longer-term goal to achieve a more equal distribution of wealth, it is essential tohelp people manage money and financial stress, while offering affordable well-being solutions.
  4. Access to well-being needs to be fully democratic – Well-being must be inclusive, available, accessible, and achievable for everyone, regardless of wealth, gender, race, nationality, sexuality, or ability.
  5. Joined-up thinking is required – As organizations, corporations, and nations connect their ideas and actions to a wider eco-system, the improving health of their populations leads to richer, more robust economies.
  6. Technology must become a positive force – Empowering individuals to have control over their data, privacy, and safety, while improving the quality of data that is shared, collected, and used, is a positive force for change.
  7. Our own well-being is entwined with our planet – How we use the world’s precious resources is critical to a sense of well-being in the world, ensuring our air, food and water supplies are safe, nourishing, and sustainable.
  8. Well-being transcends cultural differences – The desire to be well is a universal aspiration and essential to being human; if recognized as a cornerstone of public policy, it can be the engine that transforms the world.
