The chemicals released when we genuinely feel good have a positive effect on the body, brain, and heart. It enables new ways of thinking and being that are otherwise unavailable to us when we’re feeling stressed, or even neutral.
Feeling good has health giving effects. Research has shown that positivity has been linked to:
- Better sleep
- Fewer colds
- Lower blood pressure
- Improved digestion
- Boosting the immune system
- Better cardiovascular health
- Lower risk of disease
- Lower inflammatory response to stress
- Lower levels of stress related hormones
The chemicals released when we feel good are fuel for the brain. All of our cognitive abilities are enhanced, making us more productive because we’re better able to focus, concentrate, and think more clearly.
There’s also an opening effect on the mind, widening the scope of our vision literally and metaphorically to see the bigger picture, connect dots, make better decisions, find solutions, new ways forward, and spot opportunities. We’re primed to see more possibility, and are therefore more creative and innovative.
This broadened mindset as a result of positivity contributes to enhanced performance.
An article in Harvard Business Review, titled ‘The best leaders have a contagious positive energy,’ described research by Kim Cameron showing that positive relational energy—the positive energy exchanged between people that is life-giving and renewing—is the most powerful predictor of leadership success, and ultimately organisational success.
The broadening effect of genuine positive feelings on the heart is what facilitates this positive energy. In a practical sense, it means:
- We show up as the better version of ourselves.
- We experience positive relational energy that enables us to naturally connect with others more easily, fostering greater collaboration and better relationships both at work and home.
- We’re more inclined to do things that expand our comfort zone. It’s this ability to move beyond our comfort zone that enables us to keep levelling up.
- By experiencing positive energy, we enhance our own performance; and by expressing positive energy as a leader, you facilitate higher performance of those around you.
The evidence is overwhelming that experiencing and expressing positive emotions and moods tends to enhance performance at individual, group, and organisational levels.
Barsade and Gibson, 2007
“ Since working with Diana I’ve learned to recognise my reactions to situations that have contributed to stress and migraines; received tools to manage these reactions and view situations from a different perspective; broken patterns of behaviour that had negative impacts; and understood the source of strong emotions and learned to heal from it.
I’ve only had one migraine in 8 months, which is a vast improvement from 20-30 a year! I now feel more in control at work in dealing with difficult situations, and am a lot happier in general as a result.”
“ I’m feeling a calmness I didn’t know was missing. I have a lot more patience with my son, and other things that would usually bother me—like situations at work—haven’t been bothering me. I also feel content with life, which is something I’ve probably never felt before.”
“ I feel a lot calmer and am sleeping much better. I no longer wake up in the middle of the night, wondering what is happening to my life. I also have more positive energy.”
The greatest competitive advantage in the modern economy is a positive and engaged brain.
