Positive psychology is a new field of psychology that explores ways of leading a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Why is it that some people have a more joyful life and have a greater sense of well being? Why is it that happiness for some, is achieved by setting goals while others are content drifting from day to day.
Positive psychology studies happy people and looks at the reasons why they are happy. It attempts to provide a roadmap for others to follow who seek the best of what life has to offer.
All of us experience difficulties and challenges in our lives but what separates the winners from the losers is how we respond to these difficulties and challenges. Do you know people that easily overcome obstacles? What personality traits do these people have that make them so resilient?
Positive psychology is interested in people’s strengths not just their weaknesses. It is concerned with helping people reach their full potential not just healing mental illness.
Happy people tend to have better relationships, earn more and live longer.
When we examine the reasons why some individuals have more joy in their lives there are five important areas of focus.
Flow is achieved when we are engaged in activities that give us peak experiences. It could be snowboarding, giving a successful sales presentation or travelling to a new unexplored destination.
Positive relationships are crucial in our lives. People with a strong network of positive relationships with others tend to by happier.
Positive emotions play an important role in our sense of wellbeing. Having a high proportion positive emotions in our day can improve our mental health.
Character strengths, we all have strengths and weaknesses. Positive psychology helps us identify our strengths and use them to our greatest advantage.
A meaningful life. This will vary greatly from one individual to another. For a younger person it may mean a life full of physical activity while an older person may prefer a more restful and contemplative life.
So whether your a parent, a coach or an employer, the field of positive psychology can greatly improve your enjoyment of life and give you the skills and knowledge you need to pass on to others you want to help.
