Abstract: This study explored the effect of expressive writing about satisfaction experiences on well-being. Participants in the experimental condition (n = 46) wrote about meaningful activities that provide them with an intense sense of enjoyment and pleasure and how satisfaction derived from such activities can be increased. The control group participants (n = 44) wrote about their daily activities. The results showed that writing about satisfaction experiences led to significantly higher levels of well-being, including more life satisfaction, positive affect, psychological well-being, and social well-being and less depression, anxiety and stress.
