This book is called Psychology

Chapter: Positive emotions.

Potency: feeling capable and able to do what is needed

Spirituality: feelings of awe or wonder

Contentment: feeling pleasantly satisfied with circumstances

Relaxation: feeling unstressed and mentally calm

Self indulgence: pampering, which is a pleasure more personal than shared

Altruism: sharing or caring for other people

Absorption: feeling interested in a topic or hobby

Exhilaration: excited about something or thrilled by an unexpected pleasant experience

This has been good to read…my ideas of positive emotions have been so simple and black and white. The book also pointed out that the media emphasises negtive emotions more often than positive ones, which might contribute to our lack of..registering┬ápositive ones as we do with negative
