Great Quality of Life in Ecuador
If I will try to define Quality of Life, it will be the following: The degree to which a person enjoys the important possibilities of his or her life.
Quality of Life emphasizes on individuals’ physical, psychological, and spiritual functioning; their connections with their environments; and opportunities for maintaining and enhancing skills.
The extent of a person’s Quality of Life in the areas of Being, Belonging, and Becoming is determined by two factors: importance and enjoyment. Thus, Quality of Life consists of the relative importance or meaning attached to each particular aspect of life and the extent of the person’s enjoyment with respect to each situation.
