A recent survey conducted by Westin Hotels & Resorts on well-being disclosed that although work-related stress has increased over the last few years, nearly two-fifths (38%) of UAE respondents feel that their overall sense of well-being is ‘excellent and could not be better’. The survey sample consisted of more than 6,000 frequent global travellers, 1,050 of which are from UAE.
A further 25% felt that their well-being was ‘good but that a couple of things could be better’. The global study was unveiled along the lines of the Westin Well-Being Movement, a US$ 15 million initiative designed to enhance well-being of guests and associates.
“Citizens of the globe are ultra-aware of their state of well-being and are interested in what they can do to maintain it and improve their health and balance – even when faced with accelerated stress,” said Brian Povinelli, global brand leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts.
Survey results also show that stress results in difficulty in achieving a balanced sense of well-being. Over the past year, only a third saying their stress levels decreased or remained the same.
