Why is positive psychology so popular? Besides trying to understand people’s happiness better, we’re always searching for better life engagement and relationship enhancements. There is a lot of value in positive psychology in other aspects of life, like education and sports. Dr. Lisa Miller, faculty member at American Public University, discusses the benefits of positive psychology in sports, goal setting for exercise achievement, and more.

New outcomes for positive psychology in sports, and education, will be shared in the upcoming book, Positive Psychology on the College Campus.
