Most of us reckon we know what Happiness means, but do we really know what its main components are? The model of theoretical understanding of happiness created by Martin Seligman helps us realise how we can lead a happy life.
What is positive psychology? When you stumble upon this expression you might immediately think of a smiley emoticon, and might think this division of science could be about nothing else but the examining of positive phenomena, that is, everything that brings happiness and joy into our life.
For every human being, happiness is the balm for the soul, the inner motivating power, the foundation of their creativity, the motor of their actions and the real meaning of their life. Happiness in children forms the future, because those who are happy as children can find the purpose of their lives sooner, have goals and are ready to act. They are lively and throw themselves into life with much enthusiasm. Education for happiness is not simply a goal, it is a mission for parents, teachers and governments.
There is no such thing as a perfect life without any problems. In a struggle-free state of well-being, the body would weaken and the mind would dull. Those who enjoy life to its fullest are the ones who can make the best out of everything they have and not the ones who have the best of all.
Psychology has been dealing with human behavior for quite a long time, but it has been focusing on researching the factors that make people happy for only a short period of time.
