Introducing Positive Psychology – A Practical Guide

Positive psychologists seek to find and nurture genius and talent, and to make normal life more fulfilling, rather than treat mental illness.This Practical Guide explores how we can all have a “life of enjoyment”, in which we savour the positive emotions that are part of healthy living; a “life of engagement” where we feel confident we can tackle the tasks we face; and a ‘life of affiliation’, being part of something larger than ourselves.Free of jargon but full of straightforward advice, case studies and step-by-step instructions, this is the perfect concise start to making your life better.

    First of all, measure your life satisfaction. You can use Diener and colleagues’ Satisfaction with Life Scale.
    Then measure how you feel. To do this you can use the Positive and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS) which we look at in Chapter 11, or the Scale of Positive and Negative Experience (SPANE). See the Resources section for details of these assessment tools.
    How did you fare? Were you surprised by the outcome? If the results weren’t as high as you’d like, how might you increase your life satisfaction and your positive mood, or decrease your negative mood? Write some notes in your well-being journal.

    The miracle question is this:
    Imagine that in the middle of the night, when you are fast asleep, a miracle happens and the problems you have been having are solved just like that. But since the miracle happened in the middle of the night, nobody tells you that it happened. When you wake up the next morning, how will you notice that the miracle has happened? What will be different?
