Theory of Welbeing

Positive Psychology demonstrates that people have the capacity to learn and grow into wellness. This framework has five elements that describe wellbeing which can be known as the 5 Pillars to Flourishing. When each of the five pillars become active and alive, people begin to move into a state of optimal mental health.

This movement toward wellbeing and positive existence is known as the Heliotropic Effect. Liken it to a sunflower that moves in the direction of sunlight in order to grow and create the most spectacular flower - as do people that move toward a life which engages the motion of positive energy.
