        美好的情感可以起到生理保护作用-有助于延长寿命。下面的一些方法可以让你消除负面情绪,从而更好地享受生活。

宣泄

        一项对2500位男性进行的长达9年的研究显示,抑制愤怒的人比那些将不满情绪宣泄出来的人得冠状动脉疾病的几率高75%。所以下次生气时,找个朋友“放放气”(但是不要制造敌人)。

数到10

        当数数时,人的大脑活动就会从控制情绪的边缘系统转到负责理性思考的区域-额叶皮层。这就是我们在数数后能更好地处理事情的原因。在数数的同时做深呼吸可以增强其有效性。

感受爱

         这个简单的建议看来似乎是老调常谈。但研究显示爱的情感的确能使人的心跳更加平缓,更加规律。20世纪80年代晚期在英国进行的一项研究显示,不幸的爱情生活会增加女人得心脏病的风险。试着每天做一些能使你感受到爱的暖流的事情。比如选择一些你喜欢的记录孩子们幸福时刻的照片,把它们保存到电脑上作为屏幕,或是在你需要微笑时浏览一下。给你的爱人大量的拥抱。欣赏爱情歌曲。

无过错推断

         比如,一旦你开始对一个店员感到生气,就停下来想一想。商店里可笑的退款规定真的是收银员的过失吗?期望一个暑假在杂货店打工的学生清楚香蒜酱放在什么地方公平吗?抨击常常是不公平的,而且很少使你得到想要的东西。更糟的是,它把你的愤怒传递给了另一个人。而设身处地的为他人着想却可以迅速平息愤怒,且通常会导致更好的结果。

 不要试图做所有的事情

          当我们试图同时做很多事时,愤怒、不满和烦躁就会达到顶峰。列出你每天要做的事,然后划掉最无关紧要的。这将有助于养成一种良好的习惯,即将精力集中在最重要的事情上,而不是为琐碎的事情忧虑。

宽恕

        一项研究证明,患有冠状动脉疾病的人,如果善于宽恕别人,不念旧恶,那么流向心脏的血流量就会改善。心怀怨恨则会使肾上腺素的水平增加,同时破坏使人感觉良好的血清素荷尔蒙。宽恕可以释放被抑制的愤怒并创造一个更健康的荷尔蒙平衡。

        当然,这并不意味着为不良行为找借口。宽恕的意思是说你决定不让某件事或某个人控制你的生活或具备伤害你的能力。这可能需要一些时间,但是只要努力去做,你就已经成功了一半。现在试着找一件你仍为之烦恼的事情,然后下定决心让它成为过去。

原谅自己

         我们常常是自己最苛刻的批评家。当你努力宽恕别人时,也要记得对自己大度些。要知道你不能改变过去,但是你可以改善现在---那就是对自己仁慈些。

快乐生活

         最近一次令你感到开心的事发生在什么时间?如果你想不出来,那就在你的日历上写下一些你喜欢做的事情。不需要很详细,只要记下一些你期盼的事即可。比如每周组织一次高尔夫球赛,租一部喜剧电影或带着孩子们去公园。经常奖励自己一些快乐时光,就不会感到自己陷入生活的泥淖。

控制并接受控制

        我们无法控制世界大事,公司裁员,糟糕的天气或他人的愚蠢行为,但是我们很多人都可能会遇到这些情况。学会心平气和地接受它们吧。将那些你无法控制的事情留给“权力更大者”,无论它是命运还是上帝。然后控制你力所能及的一切。例如你不能使粗鲁的人变得礼貌,但是你可以选择在未来避开他们。

Choose to Be Happy 

Good feelings can act as a biological shield—helping you to live a longer life. Here’s how to rid yourself of negative emotions and enjoy life more fully.

Let It Out
A nine-year study of 2,500 men showed that those who bottled up their anger were up to 75 per cent more likely to develop coronary artery disease than those who vented their frustration. The next time you’re angry, find a friend and let off some steam (but don’t create an enemy).

Count to 10
When you count, your brain activity shifts to the frontal cortex, the area

of rational thought—and away from the emotionally charged limbic system where there’s little control over emotions. That’s why you feel more able to cope after counting. You can increase the effectiveness by breathing deeply at the same time.

Feel Love
This simple advice is not as trite as it seems: studies show that feelings of love actually make your heart beat more smoothly and regularly. And conversely, one British study in the late 1980s showed that an unhappy love life increased the risk of heart disease in women. Try doing something each day that makes you feel a warm, loving glow. Choose some happy photos of your children, download them onto your computer and use them as a screensaver or click on them when you need a smile. Give your partner lots of hugs. Listen to some love songs.

Give the Benefit of the Doubt
As soon as you start feeling cross with a shop assistant, for example, stop and take a mental step back. Is the shop’s ridiculous refund policy really the cashier’s fault? Is it fair to expect a schoolboy doing a summer job at the grocery store to know where the pesto sauce is kept? Lashing out rarely results in getting what you want, and it’s often unfair. Worse still, it transfers your anger to a second person. Feeling empathy calms anger quickly (and often gets better results).

Don’t Try and Do It All
Anger, frustration and impatience peak when we try to do too many things at once. Look at your list of things to do each day and cross out the least important. This will help you to get into the habit of focusing on what’s most important, and stop worrying about the trivial stuff.

Forgive
One study showed that men with coronary artery disease who were prepared to forgive and forget had improved blood flow to their hearts. Harbouring a grudge increases adrenalin levels while destroying the feel-good hormone serotonin. Forgiveness releases bottled-up anger and creates a healthier hormone balance.

 
That does not mean excusing bad behaviour. It means that you decide not to let that incident or person have control over your life or power to hurt you. It may take time but just by trying to do it, you’re halfway there. Try choosing one event you’re still upset about and make a decision to let it go.

Forgive Yourself, Too
We are often our own harshest critics. While you’re trying hard to forgive others, remember to go easy on yourself as well. You know you can’t change the past, but you can improve the present—and that means being kind to yourself.

Have Fun
When was the last time you had fun? If no recent events spring to mind, it’s time to write some fun into your calendar. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, just something you look forward to. Once a week, organize a game of golf, rent a comedy film or take your children or grandchildren to the park. You’ll feel less bogged down in daily life if you reward yourself regularly with fun times.

Give and Take Control
We can’t control world events, corporate downsizings, bad weather or the stupid behaviour of other people but many of us take such happenings personally. Learn to let them go without anger or guilt. Put things that are out of your control in the hands of a “higher power,” whether that means fate or your God, then take control of what you can. You can’t make rude people polite, for example, but you can choose to avoid them in future.
