Human Needs, Happiness and Wellbeing


Each group of needs plays a role in our wellbeing. Without love and acceptance from others, we may face loneliness, depression, and anxiety. Without respect and appreciation, we may feel demotivated and gloomy. Opposite to what some people might think, there isn't a group of needs that is more important or relevant than all the others. Survival or basic needs are not more important than psychological or self-actualisation needs, and vice-versa.
