Welcome to your course, where we will explore positivity, positive psychology, and strategies for increasing your positivity and wellbeing.
Let's first explore part of an article on positivity from the renowned Mayo Clinic in the USA.
Positive thinking, or an optimistic attitude, is the practice of focusing on the good in any given situation. It can have a big impact on your physical andÂ mental health.
That doesn't mean you ignore reality or make light of problems. It simply means you approach the good and the bad in life with the expectation that things will go well.
Positive PsychologyÃ‚Â isÃ‚Â the promotion of wellbeing and the creation of a satisfying life filled with meaning, pleasure, engagement, positive relationships and accomplishment.
It is the study of the conditions and processes that contribute to the flourishing or optimal functioning of people, groups, and institutions.
Positive psychology shifts the focus from what is clinically wrong to the promotion of wellbeing and the creation of a satisfying life. It focuses more on what makes already-functional people thrive even more.
Martin Seligman sets out several positive psychology strategies to increase your positivity. In addition to Seligman's strategies, there are other tried and tested strategies which will increase your positivity and enhance your wellbeing.
Remember: The more positive you are, the greater your wellbeing will be.
