FORGET CARS, COUTURE, FAME OR FORTUNE, WESTIN HOTELS & RESORTS SURVEY PROVES THAT WELL-BEING IS TODAY’S NEW STATUS SYMBOL

Forget fame and fortune, well-being is topping to do lists for global travelers in our “always-on” culture, according to a global well-being survey conducted by Westin Hotels & Resorts.

With 64% of global respondents stating that their stress levels have increased over the last few years, 39% would give up alcohol and almost a quarter of global respondents and nearly half of U.S. respondents would give up sex to improve their overall well-being.
