Positive Emotions Open Our Minds

It's Expert Wednesday here at Young Happy Minds, so who better to learn from than Barbara Frederickson. Some really interesting stuff here! Positive emotions are important not only because they feel good, but instead of narrowing our focus like negative emotions do, positive emotions affect our brains in ways that increase our awareness, attention, and memory. They help us take in more information, hold several ideas in mind at once, and understand how different ideas relate to each other.
