Enhancing Resilience by Savoring Positive Experiences
It’s possible for older adults to improve their resilience and psychological well-being through simple exercises that encourage savoring positive experiences.
This new research report explores the effects of a one-week intervention on increasing older adults’ ability to savor positive experiences—as well as on reducing their tendencies toward resisting savoring—and assesses the impact of the intervention on participants’ resilience and psychological well-being. The report also includes simple recommendations for applying these findings to help older adults within a senior living community setting.
