Mindfulness enhances well-being. Design can be used to promote mindfulness and ultimately well-being. How can I study this? Specifically, how can mindful design principles be used to enhance psychological well-being? (needs rephrased)

“The World Health Organization [12] defines positive mental health or wellbeing as a state ‘which allows individuals to realize their abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully, and make a contribution to their community'” (Designing Wellbeing, 2012).

Workshops: In 2012, there was a 2-day workshop in the UK to explore the connection between interaction design and well-being. In 2012, there was also the CHI 2012 workshop on “Interaction Design and Emotional Wellbeing.”

Tools to measure well-being: the Affect Balance scale, PANAS, Affectometer, or the Satisfaction with Life Scale, Ryff’s Scales of Psychological Well-Being (SPWB), the Social Well-Being Scale

Tools to measure mindfulness: Will add these in soon.
