We spend 93% of our time indoors, and our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our behaviors, decisions, and overall health and wellness. Health and wellness are becoming a top priority in nearly all areas of people’s lives. With a growing body of research demonstrating that the environments in which people live and work can have a direct impact on our well-being. ASID is dedicated to leading the conversation on integrating health and wellness in the built environment.
Led by the International WELL Building Institute, WELL is the first building standard to focus exclusively on the health and wellness of the people in buildings. It takes a holistic approach to health in buildings and communities - addressing behavior, operations, and design. The WELL Building Standard focuses on seven concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.
As more consumers take preventive measures to maintain good mind and body health, the demand for wellness industry products and services will only increase. Interior designers can now make health and wellness a priority in their career path by achieving the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) credential.
The WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) credential signifies knowledge in human health and wellness in buildings and communities, and specialization in the WELL Building Standard.
