Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being

Martin E. P. Seligman

Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology, outlines the elements of and exercises for the creation of well-being in Flourish.Seligman asserts that flourishing is the goal of Positive Psychology and he defines well-being as: positive emotion, engagement, meaning, positive relationships, and accomplishment (p16). When these elements are incorporated into life, the response is to flourish. Rather than focusing on the problems and issues that cause suffering, Seligman provides proven antidotes to uplift. Practicing gratitude, kindness, GRIT, and utilization of strengths creates well-being. Seligman also addresses the limitations of drugs and psychotherapy to achieve well-being.
