The Science of Positive Emotion

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead

The Science of Positive Emotion
Last week we encouraged you to focus on the positive and choose that direction. This week let’s back it up with some scientific research which shows that positivity helps humans flourish in all areas of life. Barbara Fredericks, a leading social psychologist from the University of North Carolina, has been researching human emotions for over 25 years. Her research shows that a positive mindset produces emotions such as joy, amusement, happiness, serenity, gratitude, and inspiration. However negative emotions hit us like a sledgehammer! Negative emotions are much more intense than positive emotions. Barbara said, “…positive emotions are like nutrients. In the same way that we need to eat a variety of fruits to be healthy, we need a variety of positive emotions in our daily life to help us become more resourceful version of ourselves. Science has proven that positive emotions help us connect with others and build our relationships. It also builds our resilience and it helps our physical health because we become more energetic.”

Fredrickson and her colleagues study positive emotions by measuring heart rate and respiration changes. Recently, some of their subjects were taught how to self-generate positive emotions on a daily basis. Over 6-7 weeks, they practiced the ancient technique of loving-kindness meditation. Instead of focusing attention on the breath, attention is focused on a set of classic phrases such as, “may you feel safe”, “may you feel healthy”, “may you live with ease”. The participants directed those warm wishes to themselves, people in their inner circle and then expanded to those people that they had no particular feelings about. It was noted that this seemed to make them immune to bias, based on rhythms of the heart and brain activity. They are now looking at changes in genes and the immune system! I hope you’re seeing life on the “sunny side” this week – and all the things you’re looking for you find with ease. I’m here if you need anything. Have a great one!

Something to Think About
The research is still in its early stage, but scientists believe that this can allow people to become more optimistic and interact with others more easily regardless of their past circumstances. Frederickson said, “It’s like the things that tend to divide us, like race and cultural differences, temporarily slip out of view, and people are much more likely to see the collective and ‘we’ rather than ‘me versus you’.” What a world that would be!

Weekly Activity:
Spend five minutes each day getting quiet and saying those positive phrases over and over. Research shows that it will take six weeks of this practice to start seeing the positive results. Just in time to hit the ground running in the new year!

Words of Wisdom
The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get the old ones out. Dee Hock

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

Choosing Direction

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead

Choosing Direction
I hope you had an awesome weekend! I am feeling especially blessed this holiday season and I hope you are as well. The economy is good, the housing market is steady or climbing in most parts of the country, and unemployment is down. Overall, the year seems to be ending on a positive note and that’s good for all of us. But what about you? How are you feeling as 2017 comes to an end and the new year is just around the corner? The incredible thing is that we get to CHOOSE. We can choose our focus. Choose to look for the good – or wallow in the not so good. We can count blessings or woes. I am reminded of a quote by Carlos Castaneda, “We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” The funny thing about it is that when we choose the good, the happy, and the positive – life feels a whole lot more at ease, and a whole lot less like work.

As you plan for the new year ahead, in business and in life – be sure to choose the directions that will align you with the things you really want from life such as abundance and joy. Hold tight to that focus and you’ll find achieving those things to be so much simpler. Happy December! I’m here if you need anything.

Something to Think About
Make the directional choice for your life and career starting now. Build that choice into your business marketing plan, your daily activity plan, and with the things you use to fuel your mindset as you move forward such as books, video, courses, etc. It’s a great time to be in our industry and the perfect time to remember that life is rigged in your favor!

Weekly Activity:
Choose to be happy every day for a week. When negative influences show up, send them on their way with an affirmative “no”. You may need to remove some of the world’s toxic energy to do it such as turning off the news and tuning into something positive – but it will be a practice that you’ll soon discover will fill you with more energy and excitement about facing your day.

Words of Wisdom
The purpose of our lives is to be happy. Dalai Lama

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Maya Angelou

Life is What You Make It

I hope you had a relaxing and fun weekend. I found this message, and it seemed like the perfect ending to a perfect month.

Life is what you make it. Make it beautiful. Your very best days are the days when you live with true purpose and joy. Make today one of those days. Fill this moment with meaning. Fill this life with the pure and limitless love that flows from deep within you. There are unique opportunities in every situation. Focus on bringing to life those possibilities that create the most value. Allow the best that is within you to freely flow far, far beyond you. Fall in love with life all over again and again. Feel the awesome power of purpose. And truly live the miracle that is you. — Ralph Marston

Something to Think About:
I am reminded of another inspiring quote by William Johnsen: “If it is to be, it’s up to me.”

Look for the GOOD

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead.

Look for the GOOD

How was your weekend? I hope you had time to spend with those you are thankful for. On Thanksgiving, we take some time to think about what we’re thankful for. It’s important to think about our priorities and the positive things in life. It’s a time to focus on the good in our lives. In each of our days, we can find small blessings, but too often we overlook them, choosing instead to spend our time paying attention to problems or giving out energy to those who cause us trouble instead of those who put a smile on our face. This week, let’s be on the lookout for the bits of pleasure in each hour and appreciate the people who bring love and light to everyone who is blessed to know them. You are one of those people! Make it a great week! I’m here if you need anything!

Something to Think About:
What if everyone focused on making others feel good, and ended each day feeling grateful and appreciated? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Weekly Activity:
This year, consider implementing a powerful tradition around your Thanksgiving dinner. Go around the table and ask each person to say something that they are thankful for. What an incredible way to help us to reflect on the past year and stay positive.

Words of Wisdom:
When we are ready to make positive changes in our lives, we attract whatever we need to help us. Louise Hay

So often time it happens, we all live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. The Eagles

Optimists are right. So are pessimists. It’s up to you to choose which you will be.
Harvey Mackay

May I never miss a sunset or a rainbow because I am looking down. Sara June Parker

Only in the world of mathematics do two negatives multiply into a positive. Abby Morel
