Why Positive Encouragement Works Better Than Criticism

Why Positive Encouragement Works Better Than Criticism | Thinking | Scoop.it

Positive emotions generally work in an opposite way to negative emotions. So, while emotions like fear, anxiety, stress and anger narrow our focus, inhibit our concentration and decrease our cognitive abilities, positive emotions can do the opposite. When we’re feeling upbeat and happy, we’re more likely to have an inclusive focus than a self-centered outlook, and to perform better on cognitively demanding tasks.

#waystobemorepositive #howtobepositive #reducingyourstress #stoppingstress  In today's modern working world it is hard to stay positive.   More and more it seems we are getting paid less to do a lot more.    Many employees are feeling the effects.  They are becoming more stressed out and feeling negative.    This is why we need to start feeling more positive.


How to be postive?   There are ways to be more positive.   For starters change your thought process.   Our negative thoughts can bring us down before the stress of the day has the chance.   By starting out positive we increase our chances of staying positive.  


Next tip in reducing your stress is to not put off difficult decisions.  By dealing with it later will only bring on more stress.    By taking charge and handling the difficult tasks first, you will make your day less stress filled.   


Lastly try to say yes to yourself!  If there is sometime you know you would really enjoy, say yes and just do it.   You deserve sometime off.   Try and make time for it.   We always seem to make time for others but never ourselves.  


For more tips on stress managements and how to manage your stress, please check out AIHCP.    They offer online healthcare certifications year round.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, November 19, 2013 5:35 PM

Dr. Richard Davidson suggests that "using our experiences to positively shift our self-perception" will retrain your brain.

 

Did you know that playing just 2 hours of a video game can structurally change your brain?  Imagine that!  Just 2 hours with a joystick can actually change the structure of your brain.  This "underscores how extraordinarily dynamic our brains are, constantly being shaped this way and that."  And it happens so fast.  Studies show that an average adult generates 5,000 to 10,000 new brain cells every single day.

 

Most people are not very willing to shift their worldview.  And most often, we are unconscious of how our brain is being shaped by the forces around us. But in knowing that the brain changes in response to our experiences, actions and relationships, we can take advantage of this knowledge and "actually play a more intentional role in shaping our own brains in ways that may be heath promoting and in ways that can cultivate well-being".

The Potential Traps of Positive Thinking

Certain elements of positive thinking and the Law of Attraction are rock solid; you need to focus on a desired outcome, have reminders of said preferred outcome, act to accomplish that preferred outcome, and stay with it till you reach that preferred outcome. What occurs is what you begin to focus on more often, the more you wire your subconscious mind to find methods to bring what you focus on into real life. But unfortunately, Positive Thinking, when taken to the extreme, can be excessively detrimental to various elements your life. There are a few instances where positive thinking takes a turn for the nonsensical. Right here are a few examples I've seen in my own life:. 1. Pretending issues simply don't exist. I remember hearing that what you think about you attract to you, so I actually had a fear of even acknowledging these issues existed, no matter how in my face they were, out of fear of making them even bigger. As time went on the feeling of anger and depression only got stronger in time the more I tried to push them out of my awareness. Positive thinking should be about focusing on what you want, but it shouldn't be at the expense of the reality of what is taking place around you, whether great or bad. If you have issues in your life, you have to acknowledge them before you can fix them. Ignoring them won't make them go away. 2. Believing that your issues will magically be fixed at the last second (AKA living on a prayer, LITERALLY). I have heard of friends of friends who had costs turn up when their bank accounts are totally empty. Instead of doing any action to change that, they would say that the money would magically show up somehow. I don't know if there was any money that was scheduled to come into that account, but it still kinda shook me up that people would leave such important stuff to chance like that. It's easy to see how this might blow up in your face. Don't do it. 3. Beating yourself up over any negative feelings that enter your mind, which make them worse. I still keep in mind when the film "The Secret" first came out (before it got picked up by the legendary Oprah media machine). One of the major things that was taught was that what you think about, knowingly or SUBconsciously, you draw in. And, if you're human, bad thoughts and unfavorable emotions tend to hit you every now and again. Now, what tends to occur, in spite of our best efforts, is we end up feeling guilty or overreact to those unfavorable feelings, having them grow to even larger unfavorable emotions (getting bigger as we try to block them out), causing us to focus more on that unfavorable emotion, and on and on and on ... as it pushes people into a vicious downward spiral. What Needs To Happen To Make The Law of Attraction REALLY WORK. Belief is important, however, in the end nothing occurs without taking direct action to make it occur. The larger the miracle, the more action (and perhaps even more people) that will be needed for that preferred outcome to occur. You want to focus on a preferred outcome, have reminders of said preferred outcome, act to accomplish that preferred outcome, and stay with it till you reach that preferred outcome. Once again, bad thoughts occur every now and again, and it's fine as long as you don't STAY focused on it. Acknowledge these issues exist, direct your focus on a particular circumstance you want to be in where that issue is solved, and take massive action till you reach your preferred outcome. P.S. After you acknowledge the issues you want to face and what you have to focus on to fix these issues, you still need a solid car and a precise roadmap to do what you set out to achieve.
