Most people want to be happier, not just less depressed or anxious. I’ve studied with the founding scientist of Positive Psychology (and learned optimism), Dr. Marty Seligman.
He taught us the resilience skills that help people lead more meaningfully engaged lives. Even the Army has employed Dr. Seligman to direct an Army-wide training to increase troop resilience – for their ‘Total Fitness’ program.
Take free questionnaires at Dr. Seligman’s website to assess your strengths (VIA Signature Strengths Questionnaire) and other aspects of happiness and well-being. I highly recommend taking a look at this wide variety of videos from leaders in the field of Positive Psychology.
