Excerpt: Health is not merely the absence of disease but a multidimensional construct, reflecting dimensions of physical, mental, and social well-being (Pinquart 2001). Frequently used objective indicators of physical health are, for instance, blood pressure, cholesterol, body mass index, psychosomatic complaints, fatigue, and insomnia. Frequently used indicators of mental health or psychological well-being are feelings of anxiety, depression, and irritation. Social well-being is characterized by social support, social connectedness, and low social exclusion. These dimensions of health are usually assessed in terms of an individual’s subjective self-rated perceptions of well-being (Ng and Feldman 2013).
