Boost Your Well-Being
As we seek to understand and improve our well-being, it is helpful to use an evidence-based framework. I appreciate Martin Seligman's PERMA Theory of well-being. The theory posits that there are five key elements that can help us define and measure our well-being:
1. Positive Emotions
3. Positive Relationships
Seligman and colleagues also acknowledge that our positive perceptions of our physical health are also critically important to our overall well-being, and that, as human beings, we will experience unpleasant elements of well-being as well (i.e. loneliness, anger, and sadness).
As we work together to boost your well-being, we will use the PERMA theory as a framework. For example, there are simple and practical strategies we can use to boost each element of our well-being. I will help you employ these strategies in your daily life.
