The Flourishing Experiment

It makes sense that traditional, textbook psychology uses inventories, questionnaires, scales, and statistics to diagnosis people with mental disorders, right? But can you measure flourishing in some way?  The answer is a resounding yes! Kari shares the eight-question Flourishing Scale, which Ed Diener and Robert Biswas-Diener created, and what actions you can take to lead a happier, more flourishing lifestyle. Runner of the Week, Tracy Slayton, shares how she bounced back stronger after breaking both ankles—yes, you read that right!—five days before she would have run a well-trained-for 100K and how she recovered through focusing on her mental health.

Don’t Miss This! The next Flourishing Skills groups will start in September, which is right around the corner whether you like it or not. Take some “you time” after the kids go back to school by not missing out on this opportunity to learn skills to create a flourishing life by working in a small group of like-minded individuals.
