What does well-being mean to me?
"I believe well-being is grounded in appreciation. While we all have our challenges, I believe that a goodness resides within each of us. Recognizing the inherent goodness that’s inside each of us generates an appreciation that leads to well-being."
Center for Healthy Minds researchers, along with partners at Pennsylvania State University and the University of Virginia, are creating and studying the impact of a well-being curriculum for college freshman.
