Abstract:Introduction: Valued living is serving as a key point in behavioral therapy and theories about well-being. Literature refers to improving well-being and mental health by paying attention to values and living by them. The Mental Health Continuum – Short Form (MHC-SF) was developed to measure well-being and allows a categorical diagnosis from presence of mental health (flourishing) to absence of mental health (languishing). The aim of this study is to analyze the differences between flourishers and non-flourishers relating to valued living in everyday life, also with regard to possible impact of differences of age, gender and workplace. Methods: In order to measure valued living, the UTSurvey app was used for an experience sampling design, for 7 days with 4 moments of measure per day in a population of 50 participants. Results: The analysis of the data revealed that that the categorical differences relating to valued living are significant. Only gender differences have a significant impact on valued living in everyday life. In addition the results show that the categorical diagnosis has an effect on valued living during the week, and it has no effect on valued living in the weekend. Conclusion: Flourishers show more valued living in their everyday behavior than non-flourishers. Gender also has an impact on valued living: Men show more valued actions in their behavior than women. Moreover, there is only a difference between flourishers and non-flourishers during the week. On the weekend there is no difference in their valued living in everyday behavior.
