THRIVE OR JUST SURVIVE?

from journal European Psychologist

Would you be described as a person who thrives? There have been plenty of theories, but little agreement on what makes a person thrive rather than just survive. Dr. Daniel Brown, a sports and exercise scientist at the University of Portsmouth has collected research on what makes people thrive—from babies to teens to elderly, including various vocations. He may have come up with the first collective and broad definition of thriving. It could be as simple, he says, as feeling good about life and yourself and being good at something or even just getting better at something. Dr. Brown says thriving can be a combination of several of a variety of positive traits and life events. The study appears in the journal European Psychologist.
