human flourishing is a term used in positive psychology to describe a state of optimal well-being and functioning. According to one definition, flourishing is “when people experience positive emotions, positive psychological functioning, and positive social functioning, most of the time.” That means that flourishing encompasses many feelings, activities, and thoughts that make people feel happy and complete. Some of the components of flourishing include positive emotions, mental and physical health, meaning and purpose in life, close relationships, and often virtues like wisdom, courage, and kindness. Flourishing is not only beneficial for individuals, but also for organizations and societies, as it can enhance productivity, creativity, resilience, and social cohesion.
