Each one of us seeks happiness.
Happiness and well-being is not a thing. The modern science of happiness and well-being describes it as a ‘construct’.
For example, ‘weather’ is a construct. Ask any meteorologist, and he will tell you: weather is not a thing, it is a construct - a construct of temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and a host of other factors.
The elements of well-being include positive emotion, engagement or flow, positive relationships, meaning and accomplishment.
A couple of additional features from out of self-esteem, optimism, resilience, vitality and self-determination are required to really flourish.
This means you have to dig a bit deeper to understand fully what is happiness and well-being. It’s not as simplistic as saying: happiness is within us.
Happiness does not come to you on its own. You have to act in order to achieve it.
The good news is that we can learn to enhance our levels of happiness and well-being.
Please stay tuned as we unfold more and more on the subject.
