[+ve] An Entry A Day

Too often we focus on the negative things that affect our lives. This causes us to be incredibly unhappy. I am such a person, too often.

The problem with this is that the brain is not optimised to work with negative emotions. On the contrary, dopamine, the hormone that is associated with happiness and myriad positive emotions also turns on the cognitive learning centres in the brain. Resulting in greater creativity, intelligence and learning capacity.(Lyubomirsky, 2005)

It is with a selfish objective that I begin this project, but if it helps, I think it would inevitably rub off on others.

So, beginning today, I will journal at least one positive experience every day, just to re-live that moment and get into a positive pattern.

The posts will carry the tag: [+ve]

Here goes nothing!
