The Benefits of Positive Emotions. Part 2.

Thus, the purpose of negative emotions is to help us survive and that of positive emotions to help us thrive. Psychologists say that positive emotions promote people to see positive meaning in all events. When thinking and attention are broadened by positive emotions, a person learns to be aware that there is an opportunity behind every adversity.

Thus, people who find a positive affect during ordinary events and keep positive emotions during chronic stress or chronic illness are able to cope with all problems. In bereavement, people with positive emotions adapt quicker to loss and set up new life goals.

It is very important to bring more positive emotions into life. Doing relaxation techniques including meditation, yoga, and muscle relaxation exercises can be helpful. Also, a person should take time to rest completely because the better rested he is, the more effective he will be.

It is urgent to evaluate every situation we are in and try to find positive meaning. One of the most positive emotions related to relaxation techniques is contentment. Contentment is particularly useful for reversing negative emotions and reframing adverse event in a positive light.

Doing something we like can help us relax, and let us forget about the world for awhile. It’s very important to keep our thoughts on our own dreams and goals, and keep them off of the circumstances and people that cause negative emotions. We need to learn to preserve our emotional energy by staying calm and positive in difficult situations rather than allowing our self to be upset or angry.

All successful people are able to keep themselves calm much longer than the common person does. They are more relaxed and coped with their emotions. They remain objective and don’t take things personally. Due to fact of being aware that negative emotions deprive the energy they don’t permit themselves to become upset or angry over circumstances.

The Benefits of Positive Emotions. Part 1.

Usually people might express different combinations of emotions. Basically, emotions reflex people’s relation to life. Some people are chronically stuck in a negative emotion, like grief, while the others experience a positive one, like contentment.

As a person gets aware to name his emotions, he might cope with the negative ones and replace them with positive.

Positive emotions such as joy, hope, optimism, love, contentment and gratitude promote an individual to a personal growth and improve the quality of one’s life and a sense of emotional well-being. The positive emotions entail creative thoughts which encourage people to explore the world. It has been shown that "individuals who express higher level of positive emotion show more constructive and flexible thinking".

Positive emotions give us energy. When one is excited and communicates with people he loves and enjoys, he sparkles with enthusiasm. Under these emotions people tend to think of more possibilities and options to solve any problem they face.

However, positive emotions are only one half of the equation. Negative emotions can cause a serious harm to any effect of positive emotions. While experiencing negative emotions a person might "miss the forest for the trees". Negative emotions are fueled by an underlying fear of the unknown.

However, if that becomes motivation to then learn it and deal with it that is very useful. The negative emotions such as fear or anger can motivate a person to take an immediate action against a threat or escape it.
