The terms health and wellbeing are often interchangeably used. But there exists a difference between the two. Whereas health refers to being in a particular state, wellbeing refers to being in a good or well state. Wellbeing covers all the dimensions of wellness, leading to an overall health status.
In this podcast session, we discuss this topic of "Health and wellbeing" with Oliver Rolfe. He shares with us his knowledge and experience in the wellness spectrum.
