ABSTRACT

The presence of well-being is more important than the absence of illness. Well-being has usually been associated with the quality of life of a person. To achieve a good quality of life one needs to be healthy both physically and mentally. Today the term wellbeing can be extended to areas of emotional, physical, social, workplace, and societal well-being. Over the years the well-being of citizens has gained importance and each country has developed its laws to look after the wellbeing of the citizens. To have complete contentment the individual would seek to have a balance in all areas. Women’s well-being has improved over decades but still has a long way to go. With increased workloads, stress, and other external factors the health and well-being of a woman are greatly compromised. For women, psychological wellbeing is as important an aspect as physical wellbeing and has been gaining a lot more attention over the last decade. Women due to family and external commitments have an innate nature of putting their well-being at the bottom of their priority list. Mindfulness is a technique used to become aware of thoughts, sensations, and emotions and understand that they are impermanent. This understanding is considered to be the key to relief from suffering. Women have benefited in a plethora of areas with Mindfulness-based interventions (MBI’s). Educating women on the benefits of mindfulness and equipping them with necessary access to mindfulness training will result in better physical and mental health thus resulting in improvement in their overall well- being.
