Introduction The concept of meaning has been a central topic in the positive psychology literature and is often considered an important factor associated with well-being, life satisfaction and positive affect. Research in this area has explored the structure of meaning (its components or levels), sources of meaning (including both external life domains and inner dimensions of self), the process of meaning making (meaning detection as well as meaning construction) and the relationship between meaning and well-being (Delle Fave, Brdar, Wissing & Vella-Brodrick, 2013). According to Delle Fave et al. (2013), meaning is central to eudaimonic wellbeing, while life satisfaction is more closely aligned with hedonic well-being, although there is some overlap between the two.
