Engaging in these types of actions makes one more oblivious to danger which can lead to hazardous and potentially lifethreatening situations. On a less serious scale, another drawback of an overwhelming amount of positive emotions is the way it affects brain processing. Moods and emotions affect the way the brain perceives information; for example, when in a familiar environment “we tend not to think long and hard about anything too challenging” (David 124). For this reason, people with high levels of happiness tend to show more rigid behaviors as well as less creativity than those who have lower levels of happiness (David 124). In the end, while both positive and negative emotions are good in moderation, an exuberant amount of any emotions can be detrimental to physical and mental human health.
Important issue is that in clinical populations ‘positive emotions’ such as safeness, joy, and happiness are not necessarily experienced as pleasurable but are rather frightening (Gilbert et.al, 2012). One reason being that previous experiences of these emotions may have been associated with adverse outcomes, for example, the person who says ‘happiness never lasts – when I feel happy I am always waiting for something bad to happen. Joshanloo (2012) reviews the empirical and theoretical evidence suggesting that, some individuals possess negative views on happiness and are sometimes afraid of

Positive superstitions are mainly told to reduce anxiety, build confidence to cope up with uncertainty, giving the illusion of control in an uncontrollable situation. Each religion holds a different set of superstitions pertaining to their culture and practices.

It is human nature to strive for happiness and do things that you enjoy to do. John Mill says, “those only are happy (I thought) who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness” which I don’t agree with, I know personally in my own life there are lots of things that make me happy that don’t even involve other people or their happiness. I feel that most people agree that they want to be happy and strive to find that happiness, whether it is the perfect partner or a good job, everyday. In A Crisis in my Mental History, John Stuart Mill says,” The only chance is to treat, not happiness, but some end external to it, as the purpose of life”
Tourette is a mental disorder that is perceived to have dysfunction in the frontal lobes. This causes involuntary and uncontrollable repetitive actions such as behavior, thoughts, and vocalization. The involuntary and uncontrollable repetitive action is called “Tics” according to the documentary. However, the uncontrollable action can be suppressed but just for a short period of time. Doing the tics is a sense of relief for the people with Tourette.
This, he suggests, involves a positive move against learned helplessness, or the tendency to think pessimistically when faced with successive negative situations in which one appears to have no control over outcomes. Pessimists, Seligman argues, are prone to blaming themselves for bad things, while optimists are naturally inclined to be less affected by negative events, recognising the possible external factors involved.6 By using his positive thinking techniques, Seligman suggests, optimism can be learned in order to improve mental well-being (which, ironically, implies that pessimists are rather optimistic about the curative powers of Seligman’s solution to their negative
Although happiness is the main point of having a happy life, it is not the only emotion humans rely on to be happy. All emotions are pertinent to having balance. In an article, it states, “...chasing after happiness can be just as self defeating as brooding and bottling up your emotions.”(David, 126). Some of the emotions people must possess are happiness, anger, sadness, fear, trust, and serenity. Having too much or too little of any emotion could cause havoc in one’s life.
Indulging in happiness is used as a crutch to suppress other emotions that associated with pain. Yet, it is overlooked that too much happiness is actually unhealthy without the balance of negative emotions. Author Sharon Begley, an awardwinning staff writer at Newsweek, supports, “You become more
