Positive Psychology has seen tremendous growth over the past decade. The real question is this, is health more than just the absence of illness?
Would you prefer to be “less depressed” or to find meaning and happiness?
Positive Psychology can help you to find meaning, to be more engaged in life and to increase positive emotion. The theory behind Positive Psychology is that happiness can be separated into three different elements that are better defined and more measurable than happiness.
- Positive emotion
- Anxiety relief
Positive emotion describes what we feel: pleasure, rapture, ecstasy, warmth, comfort, etc. It is called a “pleasant life.”
Engagement is about flow, being one with the music, the sense that time has stopped, and the loss of self-consciousness during an absorbing activity. A life lived with these aims is the “engaged life.”
There is yet a third element to happiness – meaning. Human beings want meaning and purpose in life. The “Meaningful Life” consists of belonging to and serving something that you believe is bigger than yourself. Humanity has created positive institutions that enable us to experience meaning, especially religion, political party, being Green, the Boy Scouts, or the family.
