Most Creative Emotions

Be happy. It’s good for your health. Not just that. It’s good for your brains.

Whether you are embarking on a new venture, a new project or pretty much a new anything, make sure you are happy. It makes a whole lot difference. That’s only if you want to be different, unique and creative.

The Broaden-and-Build Theory of positive emotions by Barbara Fredrickson suggests that:

"Joy sparks the urge to play,
Interest sparks the urge to explore,
Contentment sparks the urge to savor and integrate, and
Love sparks a recurring cycle of each of these positive emotions."

Pretty simple and straight forward; positive emotions broadens your horizons whereas negative emotions narrows it down.

Those positive emotions fire novel creative actions and ideas, social bonds and intellectual curiosity leading to resource accumulation. Hence, the terms broaden and build.
