Abstract: 

This paper attempts to gather constructs getting at the same energetic phenomena of vitality and create a coherent picture of what is understood about how to cultivate this experience in the self and at work. Vitality is pertinent to positive psychology in that it is considered a positive affect and focuses on enhancing well-being and preventing pathology. As much of our life is spent working, and vitality appears to play a role in behavioral and health outcomes, the application of vitality in a work setting is of importance. Future directions and implications for practical application are discussed.
