How Positive Emotions Lead to Better Health

How Positive Emotions Lead to Better Health | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

New research suggests that meditation or any other mood-enhancing activity can serve as a nutrient for the human body.

 

“Positive emotion, positive social connections, and physical health influence one another in a self-sustaining, upward-spiral dynamic,” concludes a research team led by psychologist Bethany Kok of the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences. It found upbeat emotions inspired by a meditative practice led to greater feelings of connectedness with others, which positively impacted “a biological resource that has been linked to numerous health benefits.”
