How well are you living? Take the quiz – discover how a good sleep is 4x more important than pay

Posted by Oxford Economics on Nov 3, 2017 11:22:18 AM

How closely linked is your disposable income to your overall wellness? Does sleep impact your quality of life? What about spending time outdoors or chatting with your neighbours? Our daily experiences and interactions impact our lives and wellness. But it’s not always so clear how to define and measure them.

In our latest research, we explore those questions and more, partnering with Sainsbury’s as we quantify, analyse, and track what it means to live well.

We asked more than 8,000 people to tell us how they’re living – from their relationships with partners, family and friends, to whether they own their own home, how secure they feel in their finances and jobs and much more. In the coming years, we will track how these factors change and impact our lives, creating the Sainsbury’s Living Well Index.

Our first edition of the index offers unique, fresh and even surprising insights.

We learned, for example, that sleeping well is the largest factor in determining how well a person is living. Their sleep quality is four times more important  than their disposable income.
