Integral well-being is a state that depends on the context and the situation, which includes basic aspects for a good life: freedom and choice, health and physical well-being, good social relationships, security and peace of mind. Integral well-being is a concept related to the good condition of people or groups.

Within the components of human well-being, personal satisfaction with life is of fundamental importance. This satisfaction takes place when there is a conjugation between man and the environment and society, which includes the objective and subjective conditions that allow the human being certain opportunities for professional realization.
