We all want to be happy. And science shows that happiness not only feels great but also predicts better physical health and even a higher paycheck.

Prioritizing Positivity:
 
A study led by Iris Mauss, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, found that people instructed to feel happier while watching a pleasant film clip ended up feeling worse than people instructed just to watch the clip. Findings like this are echoed in the popular press: Writer Ruth Whippman argued in a recent New York Times piece that the pursuit of happiness is a “recipe for neurosis.”

– Can you think of someone who overdoes positivity ?
You might ask if it’s fake and unrealistic.
– What happens when we drag up experiences that were positive and negative for us from the past ? What does it do to you for that day ?
No emotion is built to last forever.
Under the study of “prioritizing Positivity’ – there’s a recognized process of
Current reality -> Appraisal -> Changes in oneself -> Response
 
This means that at every step of this above process, we can CHOOSE to prioritize and experience Positivity AND Nurture it too.
People who score high on Prioritization have
– a better life satisfaction
– more resources

– better relationships
– better appreciation ability
– you choose to savor positivity
The point is, it can be DEVELOPED.
