A significant part of the body’s self-healing process involves the psychological input a person receives. This is where positive psychology comes in, which is a scientific approach to studying one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with a focus on happiness, gratitude, compassionate resilience, and overall wellbeing. Ultimately, everyone strives to be happy.
Positive emotions boost motivation and job performance.
In a society where work has become a major part of people’s lives, feelings of self-worth, gratitude, and joy can contribute towards a greater incentive to make a difference in the workplace.
Gratitude contributes towards greater happiness in life.
Rather than focusing on what one is lacking, feelings of gratitude for what one has can significantly reduce stress. A lower amount of stress is associated with better overall health and motivation.
Having a good social support can accelerate healing.
Having a supportive social circle has been reported to lower rates of cognitive decline, better management of severe medical conditions, and increased longevity.
Feelings of positivity lead to better physiological health
