Boosting Good Feelings

Updated: Feb 23

In her book "Radical Remission," Dr. Kelly Turner explains how feeling more positive can help your immune system. Emotions like joy, gratitude, love, and laughter can quickly make you feel better and calmer. Just five minutes a day of doing something you love can relax you. This is good for your body because it releases healing hormones like serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins. For instance, laughing boosts your oxytocin levels, which reduces the negative effects of cortisol (the stress hormone) on your body. Studies show that being grateful is good for your mind and body. Reflecting on what you're thankful for each day can improve your mood and sleep. "Radical Hope" suggests actions to increase positive emotions. One is to choose uplifting entertainment and limit negative news. Surround yourself with friends who make you feel good. You can also show appreciation to someone or call a friend going through a tough time. One of my clients schedules fun activities. While it might be hard to find time, taking small steps each day to add joy can help you feel more relaxed and peaceful.
