For starters: Most Psychology Research Is BS
. Jason Hreha, Head of Product, Behavioral Sciences @ Walmart has a great post
to help you figure out which psychology headlines you can ignore and which you should integrate into your life. Plus, he shares some guiding principles:
- ✨ If It Sounds Like Magic, It Probably Is
- 📴 Small Changes Generally Do Not Lead to Large Results
- 🕒 Change Takes Time
- 🍴Take Care of the Basics
Bearing that in mind, maybe it is no surprise to read that:
For many years, psychologists, following Freud, thought that people simply needed to express their anger and anxiety—blow off some steam— to be happier. But this is wrong.
To me: resilience is the art of staying stoked. 🤙
People who stay stoked are more likely to be positive and optimistic, regulate their emotions more evenly and even maintain that optimism through the most trying circumstances.
I know this is easier for some people but do try to evoke your stoke
