How to Stop Negative Emotions
Emotional contagion can turn a child’s bad mood into a family-wide melt-down. Science can explain these dynamics and teach us how to stop destructive spirals and spread joy instead of anger. During pandemics, personal choices determine whether we contain or spread the virus. Our decisions also govern something even more contagious – our emotions. When they’re out of control, one person’s irritability can poison the whole family’s happiness. But, if we understand and harness transmissible emotions, they can (like a vaccine) protect family wellbeing.
