BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE! A BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL MODEL OF SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING
Main Article Content
For over 35 years, the concept of subjective well-being has been understood as composed of two parts: an affective component and a cognitive component. This line of research has led to important contributions with regard to physical, psychological, and social health. In this article, we briefly develop the idea of a biopsychosocial model of subjective well-being: affect, life satisfaction, and harmony in life. We argue that a biopsychosocial perspective on subjective well-being covers all the parts that compose a human being (i.e., body, mind, and psyche) and also corresponds to a person-centered measure of human well-being.
