Happiness in Progress


Oct 24, 2018

Have you ever noticed negativity breeds negativity?

As I scroll through my Facebook feed, I’ve started to think maybe we actually LIKE feeling this way. Maybe we like the negativity, the anger, the fighting and everything that comes with it. 

It’s more than just bad news that’s shared. It’s negative opinions, it’s anger, it’s complaints - there is so much NEGATIVITY on our social media feeds.

Some experts say negativity is an addiction - even comparing it to addictions to drugs and alcohol.

In this episode, Danielle talks about research looking at how negativity impacts the brain and the so-called negativity bias.

Plus, get ideas on how to fight the negativity bias (the thing in your brain that makes negative stuff impact you more than positive stuff) and live a happier life day to day.
