Wait a minute...is it WellBeing or Well-being?

Actually, it's both and then some! According to Merriam-Webster, "well-being" defined as the state of being happy, healthy, or successful is written with a hyphen. However, thanks to the New York Times bestseller WellBeing: The Five Essential Elements written by Rath and Harter, well-being has been written in many publications as one word, no hyphen. At ISU, we are using both. In shifting from wellness to well-being, we decided to give the program the title ISU WellBeing, that's well-being as one word, italicized, no hyphen, and a capital "B" for being! But, as you may have noticed, when we use the term well-being, we go with the authority, Merriam-Webster. So, that's it folks - ISU WellBeing is moving from wellness to well-being and enjoying the fun in just being well!
