Positive thinking is a concept that many people either swear by or shrug off as pseudoscience nonsense. Regardless of the side you are on, you cannot deny the attraction that positivity generates among humans.
A University of Michigan study, led by psychology professor Barbara Fredrickson had the following conclusion when it came to investigating the effect of positivity on our lives:
“Joy sparks the urge to play, interest sparks the urge to explore, contentment sparks the urge to savor and integrate, and love sparks a recurring cycle of each of these urges within safe, close relationships.”
