Large scales studies have shown that high levels of well-being are related to high levels of performance and success in many different areas of your life, both school and work. In this way, PERMA serves as a road map for well-being and success, both now while you are in school but also throughout the rest of your life. Each of the domains, that are contained in Seligman’s model, namely Positive Moods, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Achievement, represent an opportunity to increase your overall well-being, and in doing so your likelihood of success at school and work.
In this lecture, you will be introduced to PERMA and complete some surveys and exercises designed to help you identify where your current level of well-being is located and identified some untapped opportunities for increasing your well-being.
Resources: Please download the worksheet before the seminar and complete the surveys after the seminar.
