I was in an advanced personal development seminar in the 80’s where we spent a whole half day on thinking about what we were thinking about. It was a model for journaling and putting our negative and positive thoughts (whatever came up in the moment) into words and phrases. Here’s what 25 people in a room learned from each other; at least 70%-80% of our unconscious thoughts, about ourselves and others, are negative.
Shifting from negative to positive, to develop our overall well-being (boosting the dopamine and serotonin in our brains) requires conscious action.
So, Lincoln was right, we are as happy as we want to be.
