What is the CoVitality Principle?
Positive personal mindsets develop with some degree of synchronicity— one's sense of gratitude might be fostered when a teacher or friend helps them with a challenging math problem. The helpee experiences gratitude for the support, just as their self-efficacy is fostered when they recognize, “hey, I can do this!” When considering global well-being, the concept of covitality has been used for benefits that emerge from multiple competencies and strengths in the fields of biology, complex personality models, and positive psychology/education.
