Positive psychology research has given people more effective tools to make better decisions and increase their well-being. If you treat yourself as a scientific experiment and test things on yourself, you will find out what works best for you.
For Sue Langley, co-founder of the Langley Group Institute and co-creator of the Diploma of Positive Psychology and Wellbeing, positive psychology (and the neuroscience and science of emotions in particular) give us clues, tips, and tools to make better decisions and increase wellbeing, yet sometimes the research is not put across in an easy digestible way. She likes to take the science and make it practical and real for people.
Sue was interviewed by Steven Zarian for Students of the International Positive Psychology Association (check out their Facebook page here). In this profile published in their February newsletter, she shares some of her key learnings and insights.
