Transforming Wellbeing Theory (TWT) & Practice is emerging as an inevitable response to the ever-growing imbalance in our lives across the globe. Over the decades, we have been advancing technologies to make our lives better. The fundamental question still remains: with all the evolving innovations, are we gaining decent success in achieving happier and more sustainable societies? Every crucial domain of our lives continuously provides evidence on how things get imbalanced despite us making huge progress in building increasingly capable technological innovations. Therefore, the TWT advances scientific knowledge and its practical application to help transforming lives. Due to its strong fundament that intertwines technological innovations with human nature, the theory is applicable in many essential life contexts, including health, education, sustainability, equality, governance, safety, emergency, management, marketing, ecology, economy, and dwelling. This work also includes a transforming toolset with 8 applicable tools that are made easy for immediate use.
