It is also defined as the person’s cognitive evaluations of his or her life. The cognitive element refers to what one thinks about his or her life satisfaction. Self-actualization is one the main key word used in subjective well-being as it is the main part which defines how well we are comfortable we are with ourselves. A person can be more proactive when that person is aware about their own worth. This is the reason many people become more optimistic and hence can perform in a better way.


Subjective well-being is essential to live our life happily. If we are not happy about something or someone then gradually our mood gets upset, we don’t feel like doing things in the same passion that we used to do it in the beginning. For an example when you are happy and feeling all jolly then if someone very close to you comes by and judges your personality In a negative way then you’re happy and jolly mood will come down to an end you will start feeling worthless and useless and cannot perform your task efficiently sometimes words hurt you a lot that it may lead till suicidal thoughts, this could also cause a negative SWB in our minds and body.
