Two groups that have been interested in the people aspect of environments are the wellness and well-being movements.  Both terms are often used interchangeably, so a clear distinction must be made here. 



“the state or condition of being in good physical and mental health” (1)



Well-being encompasses both mental and physical health, and it is associated with self-perceived health, longevity, healthy behaviors, mental and physical illness, social connectedness, productivity, and factors in the physical and social environment (2).
