The PERMA model

We often hear that the key to a fulfilled and happy life is within ourselves. But how can we put this “wisdom” into practice? What steps do we have to take to understand our inner worlds?
One path is offered by the PERMA model, a concept from positive psychology. In various studies, Prof. Martin Seligman identified the five components of happiness and summarised them in the PERMA model of positive psychology. The PERMA model enables us to take the first step towards a happy and fulfilled life – understanding what happiness is made of.
Each letter of the acronym PERMA stands for one pillar of happiness, each of which can be actively built through different actions.

Positive and pleasant emotions

Happiness is not simply the absence of bad luck. Regularly experiencing positive emotions such as affection, enjoyment, or gratitude is essential for the well-being of everyone. For this to happen, however, an understanding of emotions must first be developed and the words learned to describe them. Thus, the ability to recognize and name one’s own feelings is equally important. A great tool supporting this is the metaFox Emotions Compass.

Engagement and Flow-experience

Time takes flight. You are completely engaged and focused on the work in front of you. If this sounds familiar, then you have experienced what is called flow (see Mihály Csíkszentmihályi): the loss of the sense of time, being involved in an activity as a balancing act between being overwhelmed and boredom. Flow can happen when you’re working but also when you’re doing sports or a hobby.

Relationships | Valuable relationships

“I can rely on my friends and partner.” Statements like this show what valuable relationships are about: mutually strengthening relationships with friends, partners, and colleagues. Being part of a social network makes many people happy. Reliability and security, but also the feeling of being useful to others, play an important role here.

Meaning | Importance and meaning

What gives me meaning in life? What is a meaningful activity for me, for others, for the world? These questions go deep. Answering them is not easy, but it helps to use our strengths for a higher purpose. Recognizing our values, wishes, and desires can be a first step in making life meaningful.

Accomplishment | Target achievement

Reaching goals is a basic building block of happiness: satisfaction, increased self-confidence, and self-esteem are the results. By setting and achieving clearly outlined goals, everyone can realize their own capacities and say: “I can do it myself!” By taking one step at a time, we can create something that leaves a meaningful mark and lasts beyond our demise.

What the users say

“The deep pictures help to get in touch with yourself and others. We find this even more valuable than the usual daily calendar sayings for #Motivation and #Inspiration. They go deeper, because they ask you about your mind, your perspective, your story.
I (Michelle) love to make things conscious!
So far we have drawn a card face down from each other’s stacks, which somehow happened to fit the person very well. We let the picture work on us and then read the question out loud at the back. The person pulling the card answered it. That’s how we left it at first.
Especially in these times of physical distance, such nice impulses can help on the phone or virtually reduce the #socialdistancing.”
