The Domestic Violence Hotline defines domestic violence (also referred to as intimate partner violence (IPV), dating abuse, or relationship abuse) as a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. Many types of abuse are categorized as domestic violence, including emotional abuse, psychological abuse, financial abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse and stalking.

Positive psychology, despite what many think, is not about trying to rid your life of stressors. Positive psychology acknowledges that life can be stressful at times but seeks to improve well-being and build resilience to better manage the stressors of life. Simply put, positive psychology is the study of what makes a life worth living! Positive psychology focuses in on your strengths, instead of weaknesses, as well as building a good life and moving people from merely surviving, to thriving.

So, what is this PERMA model, and what does it have to do with well-being?

Best Wishes to You this Spring!

How do you feel about yourself? Do you ever take the time to be mindful of your self thoughts? A way that you can do this is to take a mental inventory of your thoughts you have about yourself throughout the day and jot them down in a notebook or on your phone. At the end of the day, review the information that you wrote down. Are you kind and compassionate toward yourself? Or can you be unforgiving for making mistakes and judge yourself that you are not enough based on comparisons to others?
