Benefits of Positive Interactions

1019 copyHave you heard the saying, “You are the company you keep”? This old adage suggests that if you interact with happy and positive people, you’ll end up being happier and more positive yourself; and science is proving this saying to be true. Research shows that the brain produces higher levels of feel-good chemicals (like dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) during positive interactions.*

If you want to feel happy and calm, then strive for situations and company that will foster positive interactions. Do your best to avoid negative and hostile people who can not only ruin your day, but who can also deprive your brain of the chemicals it needs in order to be in a good mood!

Express your love today!
