CAN POSITIVE EMOTIONS INCREASE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM?

In these challenging times with the COVID-19 virus, it naturally causes a lot of fear in many of us. We don’t yet know what the consequences of the virus will be, neither at a personal level or for the greater society.

Besides taking the important precautions to not spread the virus, we can actually be mindful of #CultivatingPositiveEmotions inside ourselves - simply because positive emotions have the potential to help protect us from viruses.

A ground-breaking experiment by PhD Sheldon Cohen from Carnegie Mellon University, has shown that people who experienced higher levels of positive emotions were more resistant and showed less severe regular flu symptoms than those that displayed less positive emotions (Cohen et al. 2003). This was based on 334 participants who got a common cold virus squirted into their noses and then isolated into cleared hotel rooms to wait for symptoms. The conclusion was clear - #PositiveEmotions have beneficial effects on the #ImmuneSystem functioning.

But, how can we then cultivate positive emotions in these highly disruptive times?
