Would you consider yourself a positive person? Would the people around you say that you were happy? The pressures of the holidays can magnify negative feelings or self-doubting thoughts. The good news … they don’t have to take root. Cultivating a positive perspective is quite possible.
I heard an interesting presentation recently by a neuroscientist who shared that our feelings generally last only 90 seconds. When we dwell on and rehearse a feeling, it can become a mood. It was a concept that caught my attention and resonated. It’s not wrong to have negative feelings, but it’s much better not to dwell on them.
