National Wellbeing Measure Finds Majority Struggling

Most Americans are struggling to achieve satisfactory health and wellbeing according to initial results of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index announced today. When asked to evaluate their lives based on a ladder scale, 47 percent of the 100,000 respondents polled in the 1,000 daily surveys conducted since January say they are struggling and an additional four percent say they are suffering. Factors contributing to these findings include negative workplace environments and difficulty making positive health decisions about modifiable health behaviors like diet, exercise, and stress.
