If your looping, negative self-talk has you stuck in the mud, you can fix this habit by learning more about how positive psychology works, and the research behind it. Many of my therapy and coaching clients have some knowledge of Positive Psychology and would like to learn to weave it into their own lives. Who wouldn't want to lead a happier, more satisfying life, right? The practice of increasing positive emotions may be the key to the kingdom, according to practitioners of positive psychology. Martin Seligman, founder of Positive Psychology, breaks down "happiness" for you in this YouTube Ted Talk. Enjoy as he discusses the pleasant, good and meaningful life and how to find "joy" by increasing positive emotions, meaning and learning to live in flow. If you thought Positive Psychology was just "happy talk" well, you're wrong! Learn more at the Positive Psychology Center located at the University of Pennsylvania. Take this test and learn more about your relationship to your negative thoughts from the good people at Psych Central. Practice acceptance, try compassion and change what you can. KS
