Abstract:

Whilst the relationship between active participation in sport and well-being has been widely acknowledged, less attention has been paid to actually understand this relationship from the perspective of the individual. Our paper draws upon phenomenological philosophy and the existential life-world view of well-being, in order to explore how the experience of sport can help facilitate possibilities for multiple kinds and levels of well-being. In doing so, our paper highlights the multiplicity of the dimensions of well-being, and offers examples of the different paths to well-being provided by sport, thus providing ways of describing well-being experiences within a sports context that are more complex than those offered by more traditional approaches to study in this area. Within this conceptual analysis we adopt a humanistic approach that considers the multiple ways well-being can be experienced through sport as a sense of dwelling, mobility or dwelling-mobility within the life-world dimensions of temporarily, spatiality, mood, embodiment, inter-subjectivity and identity. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

Making Well-being an Experiential Possibility: The Role of Sport"

Authors: Mayoh, J. and Jones, I.

Journal: In Press

Abstract:

Whilst the relationship between active participation in sport and well-being has been widely acknowledged, less attention has been paid to actually understanding this relationship from the perspective of the individual. Our paper draws upon phenomenological philosophy and the existential life world view of well-being as proposed by Todres and Galvin (2010), and Galvin and Todres (2011), in order to explore how the experience of sport can help facilitate possibilities for multiple kinds and levels of well-being. Specifically we achieve this by adopting a humanistic approach that considers the multiple ways wellbeing can be experienced through sport as a sense of dwelling, mobility, or dwelling-mobility within the life world dimensions of temporarily, spatiality, mood, embodiment, inter-subjectivity, and identity
