I'll post some more ideas on this in due course, but here are some thoughts.
- If positive psychology can show that interventions increase subjective well-being, can it also show what interventions increase the richer notion of eudaimonia (or flourishing, or the good life)?
- Will the same interventions that increase subjective well-being increase eudaimonia?
- Will other interventions, for example those aimed at enhancing meaning or wisdom, have more effect on eudaimonia than subjective well-being?
- Can the work on flow and strengths increase eudaimonia?
- Here's one way that they might ... By knowing and focussing on our strengths, we have more chance of achieving our life goals.
- Here's another ... By turning the activities that will help us achieve our life goals into flow activities, we will be more motivated to carry them out
