THE SCIENCE OF WELL-BEING

Decades of research in a deck of cards!

The theory that heavily inspired us is called the Six-factor Model of Psychological Well-being which was developed by an American psychologist Carol D. Ryff. Her work relies on knowledge that goes far back into the past – to ancient Greeks and Aristotle. He wrote in his Nicomachean Ethics that the goal of life is not merely to pursue pleasures, but to live virtuously and develop a strong sense of meaning.

Ryff came up with six areas that are crucial for one’s psychological well-being: purpose in life, personal growth, self-acceptance, autonomy, environmental mastery and positive relationships. What we did was scour the psychology literature to find various questions and challenges that a person could easily do to improve those six areas.

We cannot tell you hom much fun we’ve had creating this game. Yes, we scoured through hundreds of articles to find the best questions and challenges that would actually have a meaningful impact on one’s well-being – and that took a loooong time.

But mostly we remember hours upon hours of playtime with all sorts of cool people. Whether it was mother and her daughter playing the game in a quiet cafe opening up to each other, us on someone’s birthday party with 15 Macedonians who managed to cross the language barrier, got creative, and modified the game into spin the bottle activity, or as the game was initially intended: a small group of friends having a picnic and simply sharing a few hours in a meaningful way while having fun – the game always brought something new and interesting to the surface.
Nina and Patricija are sitting on the pier. In front of them is an unopened box with first protoypes of the cards. Ksenija is holding the a prototype of The Well-being Game. Behind her there's the lake. Ksenija, Nina, Sebastian and Patricija are holding the prototypes in their hands and smiling.
But as much as we enjoyed this period we know it’s time to let The Well-being Game go into the world and meet new people. People who, just like us, need more meaningful conversations, fun experiences and who care about their well-being.
