Food for Thought

I’m loving the intersection of science and psychotherapy. Did you know negative emotions narrow people’s perception, reflected by significantly reduced blood flow in a particular area of the brain called the parahippocampal? By contrast, positive emotions broaden and build perception. This data suggests what we intuitively already know – when we are feeling good we’re naturally more open and receptive.

Now, that’s food for thought we can all use.
