What is Flourishing?

Flourishing is a measure of wellbeing and is defined as “living within an optimal range of human functioning, one that connotes goodness, growth, and resilience.”    Simply put, when an individual is flourishing they are operating with a high level of wellbeing.

Your wellbeing is how happy, healthy, and content you are. If you think of your wellbeing as a sliding scale that goes up and down throughout your life flourishing would be at the top end of that scale. When you are flourishing you feel really happy, healthy, and are genuinely content with your life. Ultimately this what itsMYtime is aiming to help you accomplish and maintain.
