In this video, we’re going into the PERMA model by Martin Seligman and what that entails.

PERMA model is a model that helps you attain overall well-being as opposed to just short term boosts of happiness.

The “P” in PERMA stands for “Positive Emotions.” Positive emotions come from things that you enjoy, whether that’s spending time with friends, eating the cake you want, and things of that sort.

The “E” in PERMA stands for “Engagement,” flow, or zone. This means finding things that you get lost in, whether that’s your sport, your job, or your hobbies.

The “R” in PERMA stands for “Relationships,” which is the most important part of the PERMA model. Relationships have the biggest factor control over overall well-being. This means spending time with loved ones, friends, and family members.

The “M” in PERMA stands for “Meaning.” Think about meaning as finding your purpose or serving something greater than yourself.

The “A” in PERMA stands for “Achievement” or “Accomplishment.” This means checking off that to-do list. If you’re completing your tasks each day, you’re going to feel better overall.

So, pursue the PERMA model and you will improve your overall well-being as opposed to short-term happiness!
