Positive psychology began as a new domain of psychology in 1998 when Martin Seligman chose it as the theme for his term as president of the American Psychological Association.
The Good Life
Positive psychology is concerned with eudaimonia, “The good life”.
Rich talks and takes a look at what we hold as the greatest value in life, in addition to the factors that contribute the most to a well-lived and fulfilling life.
Positive psychologists have suggested a number of ways in which individual happiness may be fostered.
Social ties with a spouse, family, friends and wider networks through work, clubs or social organisations are of particular importance, while physical exercise and the practice of meditation may also contribute to happiness.
