Positivity - Groundbreaking Research Reveals How to Embrace the Hidden Strength of Positive Emotions, Overcome Negativity, and Thrive

Barbara Fredrickson

We all know negativity; it looms large and is easy to spot. Negativity pervades your self-talk and your judgments. It bleeds into exchanges with your kids and your colleagues, eroding goodwill. Making matters worse, negativity breeds health-damaging emotions-like anger, contempt, and depression-which seep into your entire body. But what about positivity? Can it transform our lives? And what is positivity, anyway? For more than twenty years, Dr. Barbara Fredrickson has researched these questions. Now, in Positivity, she shares how experiencing positive emotions in a 3-to-1 ratio to negative emotions leads people to achieve what they once could only imagine. She also reveals how the stunning new scientific discoveries about this powerful-though undervalued-state of mind can enhance your relationships, improve your health, relieve depression, and broaden your mind. From the Compact Disc edition.
