The 5 Buckets of Well-Being

The well-being of every individual primarily revolves around 5 buckets or all human pursuits can be defined by these 5 buckets:

Professional Competence

We spend most of our time at workplace striving for professional success and achievement. Experiencing joy at workplace can significantly contribute to mental wellbeing of an individual.


We all have activities that we do for ourselves, that we are good at and enjoy doing. These could be our hobbies, passions, or leisure activities. This bucket is important to make people realize the importance of unwinding/downtime/me-time.


Being social beings, we are constantly engaged in one or the other relationships, be it with ourselves or with others. These could include workplace relationships (boss, subordinates, colleagues), family (spouse, children, parents) and friends.

Mind & Body Fitness

This bucket deals with the fitness levels of the mind and body. It is meant to redirect attention to one’s health and fitness.

Personal Wealth

Money is the tool that enables us to protect ourselves, to build ourselves and our family a better life, and to give back to our community. Managing it makes it a very important aspect in determining our well-being.

The Problem of Urban Lifestyle

Urban lifestyle is centered around success. Every individual living in this environment is striving to achieve their goals. Most of us are leading an externally focused way of life, with the prime orientation towards achievements and success attainment. Hard work and sacrifices are part and parcel of this journey.

The continuous pressure we put on ourselves to achieve our life’s goal costs us our well-being in terms of physical, mental, and emotional health. We fail to appreciate the most valuable gift- the mind and body, that we are bestowed with freely, and tend to neglect its value and upkeep until we reach a crisis. On the face of it, we all look happy and healthy, but internally most of us are carrying a broken part within us. This broken part is constantly seeking our attention to be addressed, but we are too busy engaged in other priorities.

A human body’s first symptom of discomfort is the compromised immunity. COVID-19 has exposed this weakness glaringly. Amidst covid-19 crisis, we all are searching for a wonder pill to seek protection.

It is time we start looking inward and pay attention to our mind and body, the most precious gift we possess. The work of building the foundation of well-being begins here, within ourselves through self-care.

The Solution- Self-Care

Self-care is the art of taking care of ourselves. The core philosophy of self-care is that we are our most important assets which make taking care of ourselves non-negotiable. The art of self-care is about realigning our life and forming habits that help us manage our minds and body to operate at their peak consistently over a long period of time.
Unlike the oft-advertised concept of self-care with fancy spas and luxury massages, true self-care is about getting the basics right every day. Rather than doing one thing in isolation, self-care is a combination of various aspects of our everyday life- right from the food that we eat to the thoughts and feelings we experience to our body’s movements, all of which compound to benefit us in the long run.
True self-care is essentially following the 80-20 principle where 80% of our life’s problems can be managed by altering 20% of our lifestyle. To make things simpler for you, we at Prajna, have broken this art form into five buckets which form the foundation of well-being.

All human pursuits can be defined by these 5 buckets want to know more?

Well-Being Program for Organisations

Management of the mental well-being of Human Resource is one of the most important challenges of organisations. Amongst them the most important factor is employees’ own state of mental health which largely remains unaddressed

Since an individual spends a significant part of his active hours at the workplace, it will go a long way if organisations play an active role in ensuring the fitness of every member. Our well-being program covers the five buckets of well-being to provide a holistic solution for all of life’s challenges.

Well-Being Program for Individuals

The fast-paced world that we live in often makes us shift our attention from the most important asset in our possession, OURSELVES. We constantly strive to push ourselves to the next level without realising the toll it has on our lives. Add to it a crisis like the recent pandemic and the necessity of overall well-being becomes all the more evident.

Our well-being program has been developed to shift attention inward making self-care the hero of your lives. The program helps individuals assess the status of their 5 buckets while also giving them nourishment tools to replenish the buckets.
