Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. It examines positive human functioning on multiple levels, including biological, personal, relational, institutional, cultural, and global dimensions of life. The field is based on the premise that people truly want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. When used in therapy, the goal of Positive Psychology is to help you change your negative styles of thinking in order to change how you feel. Changing how you think about yourself, other people, and your future deeply impacts your emotional state. The ability to pull attention away from the chronic, negative inner chatter of your thoughts makes a positive impact on your overall well-being.
