Subjective Well-being: Exploring Contemplative Practices to Increase Happiness along the Continuum of Life

Abstract: 

Many sectors are investing resources into more preventative approaches to wellness. Population health institutes, the health care sector, psychologists, educators, and a growing sector of the military seek ways to keep individuals not only physically well, but emotionally and psychologically well. The research shows that maintaining positive states of well-being prevents future dis-ease. There are many approaches to achieving well-being. This chapter explores the subjective well-being construct, or happiness, well-being among military-connected families, and how to increase happiness. The author proposes a simple approach within the contemplative sciences paradigm that can be applied along the life continuum—from adolescense to adulthood.
