Welfare Wednesday: Positivity

☀️ A positive mental attitude can not only change your outlook on life, but it has been proven to have beneficial results as well.

☀️ Studies show that positive thinking is linked with better health and happiness. Researcher Barbara Fredrickson shows that those who experience boosts in their mood tend to recognize opportunities more frequently and take advantage of them, leading to greater successes in life.

☀️ Sonja Lyubomirski suggests that roughly 40% of our happiness levels are changeable, meaning that our ability to feel happy and think positively can be learned.

☀️ For those that need a little bit extra positive thinking training - everyone can benefit! - try a meditation app or a positivity app, such as Happify, Think Up and Mind Shift.
