We all have emotions but not all of them have the same value or the same psychological effects on mood.

When you wake up in a good mood in the morning, bursting with optimism, joy and energy, these emotions are positive and make you happy and productive. But when you feel tired, sluggish, demoralized, irritable in the morning, your chances of having a good day are very slim. So, some emotions are quite positive, others are quite negative.

Each has their own character: while some are generally upbeat and cheerful, others are bittersweet. Still others oscillate in balance between the two moods, and there are also people who at the same moment experience sudden changes in mood that make them feel suddenly demoralized, irritated or sad even during a very happy moment in their life.

However, more and more scientific evidence shows that emotions are communicative . Some people manage to share their optimism and cheerfulness with those around them. When faced with someone who is particularly open, kind, generous and smiling, the interlocutor will inevitably react by smiling . Positive feelings recall other positive feelings . Conversely , negative feelings recall other negative feelings.
