As a public health initiative, Body Full of Joy is a series of one-minute videos, created to help viewers feel more joy and positive emotions, while connecting to their physical bodies, to each other, and to the transformative power of positive movement. Based in the science of well-being and kinesthetic experience, these one-minute videos serve as tools for increasing physical and mental health.
Body Full of Joy is led by Amanda Moffa and Elaine O’Brien. Both have MAPP degrees from Penn, and Elaine has a PhD in Kinesiology from Temple. Body Full of Joy is inspired by a call to action from Dr. Martin E . P. Seligman, the father of positive psychology and Director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. He called for ways to embrace more positivity and build kinesthetic joy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These short videos are designed to help you center, stretch, relax, energize, laugh, and boost joy, keeping in mind the practices of positive psychology and positive fitness. Welcome! Come join us to move your body and love your mind.Along with Amanda Moffa and Elaine O’Brien, Body Full of Joy team members and content creators include positive psychology leaders:
