Kernaussage 1 von 9

The power of positive emotions has been underestimated for far too long.

Everyone knows good feelings have a positive impact: they give us energy to get more done, and our positive energy makes others like us better.

But surprisingly, up until recently, researchers mainly focused on our negative feelings, such as fear or anger.

This is because negative feelings can seem to have a more serious impact, for example, leading to depression or despair. And we’re usually more aware of negative feelings, while positive ones are a more subtle experience.

But why are negative feelings so much “louder”?

Because they have been crucial to our survival in our evolutionary past: our ancestors intensely experienced negative feelings like fear when they focused on a given threat, like a predator or enemy, so they could concentrate all their energies on fleeing or fighting.

The study of these negative emotions has allowed psychiatrists to ease many mental disorders. But only recently have researchers wondered what impact a focus on positive emotions and a general positive attitude toward life might have. And when they did, they soon came to realize what a great effect positive emotions have on our day-to-day existence.

In large doses, positive feelings such as love, joy, gratefulness, hope or pride can change our whole lives. And while they often pass unnoticed, these “silent stars” make us more resilient and help guide us through many tough times.

Furthermore, positive psychologists have shown that if you manage to increase the amount of positive emotions you experience, you’ll reap many benefits.

You’ll be more successful in your career, enjoy more stable and fulfilling relationships, and live a generally happier, less stressful life!
