What good are positive emotions?

One of the things I took away from this podcast was the idea of intentionally creating opportunities to experience moments of joy and the importance of savouring these moments to prolong them when we do experience them rather than rushing on looking for our next fix.

In the summary by Dr Michelle McQuaid, she suggests to help us prioritise positive emotions we can start by looking for little ripples of joy (eg by listening to a favourite song) and also to look to programme in big waves of joy (e.g. by reading a book, sharing time with people, going for a walk in nature).
