But how does it well?

I wonder what our world would be like if we interrogated our wellness as much as we interrogate our illness. Like instead of moving on when someone says they’re doing well after being asked how they are, to ask “How are you well?” “How so?”
We usually only do this when someone says they’re terrible or mad or sad or “not great” or whatever variation from “fine” we happen to run into. What if things were reversed? What if we investigated fine-ness and well-ness and came to understand what factors created such blessed states? Would it be a more beautiful world? Or would we just lie and say we weren’t well so we didn’t have to talk to one another.
