When you’re in a fight with someone, your anger and emotion might consume you to the point where you can’t think about anything else. Or, when you are stressed out about everything you have to get done today, you may find it hard to actual start anything because you’re paralyzed by how long your to–do list has become. Or, if you feel bad about not exercising or not eating healthy, all you think about is how little willpower you have, how you’re lazy, and how you don’t have any motivation.
In each case, your BRAIN CLOSES OFF from the outside world and focuses on the negative emotions of fear, anger, and stress .
Negative emotions prevent your brain from seeing the other options and choices that surround you. It’s your survival instinct.
When you are experiencing POSITIVE emotions like joy, contentment, and love, you will see more possibilities in your life.
Positive emotions broaden your sense of possibility and open your mind up to more options.
Separate yourself from the negative thinking, seek joy, happiness, peace of mind, practice a hobby, listen to music, take time to rest and enjoy life.
