How Does Security & Basic Needs Impact Our Well-Being?

Having enough, and freedom from worry. We need enough money for food, rent or mortgage, health care, medical bills and basic expenses of daily living. Lack of access to basic needs and personal safety are linked at all stages of life to physical and mental illness, post-traumatic stress, shorter lifespans and poorer quality of life. Research shows that ‘extras’ don’t really contribute to our well-being-unless it is for fun activities and friends, or expenses that match our values.
