Abstract

Positive psychology looks at areas like well-being and fulfillment. While the larger question of optimal human functioning is hardly new, positive psychology offers a common language on this subject to professionals working in a variety of subdisciplines and practices. Applicable in many settings and relevant for individuals, groups, organizations, communities, and societies, positive psychology is a genuinely integrative approach to professional practice. This chapter examines how physical activity acts to promote positive psychology in motion.
