“Positive psychology focuses on the promotion of well-being and the creation of a satisfying life. Happier people experience a wide range of social, personal and occupational advantages over their less happy counterparts. They typically have more fulfilling relationship, higher incomes, superior work performance, community involvement, robust health and a long life.
Positive psychology researchers have explored the characteristics of dispositional happy people, in order to develop strategies that might enhance people’s happiness if purposefully practiced.
That is, by adopting the healthy thoughts and behaviours of happy people, well-being and positive affect can be promoted.”
