Roots of Positivity

Roots of Positivity

How many positive emotions can you name? One? Five? Ten? When we think of positive emotions, we often think of happiness, joy, satisfaction, contentment, and the like. However, these emotions are largely the result of some internal evaluation of our own current condition. When naming, did you include gratitude, elevation, or admiration in your list? These less commonly discussed positive emotions are unique in that they result from witnessing the exemplary actions of others, and can help us improve our relationships at work.
