The in-between moments
Your wellbeing is a lifelong journey of moments. But when it comes to these moments, you tend to think of the big events: weddings, funerals, births, celebrations and accomplishments. But it’s also ‘the in-between moments’. The little ones, the seemingly insignificant ones, the forgettable ones. They all make up the fabric of your life and wellbeing. We don’t want to wait for ‘life to happen’ to be relevant. We want people to proactively consider their overall wellbeing and see Australian Unity as an honest, real and trustworthy enabler of their wellbeing journey.
The Australian Unity Wellbeing Index
Over the past 20 years, we've built a detailed picture of Australians' wellbeing through the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index. What have we learnt from this research? That Australians are a resilient bunch and relationships are the key to happiness.
