Positive Outlook

Positivity is one’s ability to imagine a fruitful outcome and maintain a readiness to pursue and experience the positive opportunity in any circumstance. Positive emotions open our awareness and increase the expanse of our peripheral vision, helping us see more possibilities. When experiencing positive emotions, people are more creative, more resilient to adversity, more likely to perform better academically, and more socially connected. Individuals can foster a more positive outlook by being open, appreciative, curious, kind, optimistic, and sincere. From these strategies spring positive emotions.
