Guidelines for Guest Blog Submissions

writerWe welcome submissions from our readers and alumni! We’d love to hear about your research, your work in the field of positive psychology, and your direct experiences. How have positive psychology practices impacted your life? How have they affected you professionally or personally? Tell us more!


We’re looking for articles that relate to one or more of the five aspects of whole-person well-being:

Spiritual – leading a meaningful life and mindfully savoring the present
Physical – caring for the body and tapping into the mind/body connection
Intellectual – engaging in deep learning and opening to experience
Relational – nurturing a constructive relationship with self and others
Emotional – feeling all emotions, reaching toward resilience and optimism

Our audience is made up primarily of students and practitioners of positive psychology, so we’re looking for writing that goes beyond the basics and explores a specific aspect or application of the science and/or practice. References to supporting research are welcome but not required; if your article does reference research, please include links to any studies mentioned.

Additional Guidelines

  • Guest bloggers may submit posts as frequently or infrequently as they wish, and are encouraged to promote their posts through their own social media networks. However, please refrain from promoting your business or practice in the post itself.
  • Please be sure to monitor and respond to any comments on your post.
  • All submissions should include a bio, headshot, and link to the author’s website/blog. If you graduated from or are currently attending a WBI course, please note the course and the year you graduated, if applicable.
  • Feel free to send us images to accompany the post, submitted as high-resolution .jpg files. You must have permission to use any images you send, and proper attribution is required.


We reserve the right to edit posts for spelling, grammar, etc. We may suggest changes to your article or images. You will have the opportunity to review all changes prior to publication.


Publishing of the blog post will be done at the discretion of Wholebeing Institute. We reserve the right to decline publishing any post or to remove any post after it has been published. Please be sure to monitor and respond to comments left on your blog post.
