Emotions are contagious

Emotions are contagious

Working in a negative environment can make you feel more miserable, and sharing a roof with a negative person can make you feel depressed.

We can try to withdraw from unhappy people, but when we really love others who are suffering, we want to help, not avoid them. We can help them by accepting their emotions while not giving up our own happiness.

Catching positive emotions

Studies found that even if you live within a mile of a friend who becomes cheerful, you’re likely to become happy too.

A clear way to catch an emotion is through conversation, where we project the emotions of others through our facial expressions, tone of voice, and posture.

Catching negative emotions

  • We can in part catch others emotions physiologically. If we see someone else in pain, we often express that on our faces.
  • People living together tend to influence one another’s feelings. A study found that a non-depressed roommate will show signs of depression after living with a depressed roommate. Even in the workplace, toxic negativity can derail the whole culture and lead to high turnover.

How to help maintain your own wellbeing

When love surpasses the trouble of a partner, a parent, a child or a friend, we can still sustain our own well-being.

  • Work on your own joy. It will give you the happiness reserves you need to help the unhappy person.
  • Don’t take it personally. Even if the person lashes out at you, remember it’s not your fault.
  • Use the element of surprise. Get the person to engage in spontaneous and enjoyable activities.
  • Prevent the spread. If you are the unhappy person, remember that people want to help. Allowing people to help makes them happier.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
