Some researchers have defined wellbeing as being content, happy, healthy and prosperous. It consists of experiencing enjoyment, completeness, and meaning, rather than merely avoiding pain and conflict. To experience personal wellbeing it is necessary that all aspects of being function in a healthy manner. Research on the relationship between the Christian religion and wellbeing has concluded that nurturing, non-punitive religion is associated with mental and physical health, and that active participation in church activities that enhances the member's social support system can be beneficial.
