Using investigative methods of human feelings of wellness via direct survey of economic, environmental, physical, mental, workplace, social and political wellness metrics, the theme of the research underpins the determination of linkages between policy and strategies and civic en-gagement to spawn social protection mechanisms. The research is predicated on developing tools for stemming the stresses and shocks administered by the degree and speed of impoverishment that has posed enormous challenges for nations and peoples. The influence of global competition, social re-engineering, political and military conflicts and power shifts exert enormous pressure on the psyche of the average individual and family. The results from the survey were computed using the seven satisfaction metrics. While more has changed in the last decade technologically, culturally, politically and economically than the entire past century, responses from key informants by and large show a general level of life satisfaction among the selected population of lowest to highest incomes categories, using the Gross National Happiness approach. Life wellness measurement fares better compared to Gross Domestic Product as it shows satisfaction level and helps self-targeting in public works designed as employment generating safety nets.
