Neuroscientifically, “the brain, by its nature, is naturally negative”. It may be important to consciously think
【Why Harassment by Grouchiness Happens–A Neuroscientist Reveals What It Is】
・The brain is insensitive to “good” things and sensitive to “bad” things. This can be clearly seen by examining brain waves when positive and negative stimuli are given.
・The brain clings to “bad” feelings and quickly forgets “comfortable” feelings. Positive feelings don’t last. Negative emotions are persistent.
・To hold onto positive emotions longer, it is important to repeatedly provide positive stimuli (keep playing your favorite music or video, or keep a favorite scent in the room).
These are the quotes from the article
Think “consciously” based on the premise that “the brain tends to be negative.
“The brain easily catches negativity.”
“The brain unconsciously becomes more negative.”
knew this from a previous brain science book I read, but this article is interesting in that it shows this in a brain wave diagram.
Well, it’s enough to make me go negative, even unconsciously.
It is clear that the brain is prone to negativity.
When you imagine a couple’s life as a married couple.
Even if there is an equal amount of good (positive) and bad (negative) for both parties, given the nature of the brain, it may be possible for negative feelings to gradually accumulate and the couple’s relationship to cool down.
More to the point.
Even if the good (positive) outweighs the bad (negative), the relationship can even cool down. Because negative emotions last longer, but positive emotions do not!^^;
Negativity is scary.。。
However, depending on how you think about it, you can consider that the negative emotions you are feeling may be due to the nature of your brain as described above. (Because it is possible that you are having negative feelings despite the fact that there is an equal amount of good and bad.)
If you are having positive feelings right now, it is quite possible that there are a lot of positive factors.
If we assume that the brain is negative in this way, we may be able to comfortably think that we are just prone to feel negativity and that the actual negativity may be small. ^^ (Imagine taking the standard to the negative)
Well, when you think like this, you are “consciously” using your brain, so it may be easier to get out of the negative mode. (Because the brain is negative even when it is unconscious.)
Negative is passive (bad things come naturally on their own).
Positive is active (you have to go out and grab the good things to get them)
This is a term I use often.
I think this term fits the brain science.
Come on, let’s not let the negative nature of our brains get the better of us and consciously laugh today!
See you then.
There is a psychotherapeutic technique of thinking of things you enjoy or appreciate when you go to sleep, which may also make sense in terms of keeping the short-lived positives uninterrupted.
