The optimist's brain observes, processes and understands reality in a way

different. This ability to see a ray of light others only see walls and

darkness originates certain areas of the brain. These areas are developed

specifically to provide greater openness, flexibility, resilience and

ability to better manage daily stress.

So, is it true that the brain of the optimist differs the brain of the pessimist?

As expected, there is no anatomical difference between them. All people have

the same brain structures and brain regions. The difference is how these

regions are activated and connected to each other.

Ultimately, your brain reflects who you are. It signals what you do, the

who thinks and how he responds to life. For example, we know that stress

chronic and elevated levels of cortisol over long periods of time can

cause changes in the hippocampus, amygdala and limbic system. This can

cause memory failure, hinder concentration and reduce your ability to

make decisions.

Although the human brain is surprising, it has its limitations. Nor

always works as efficiently as we would like. In fact,

we know that some people are genetically more likely to get

depressed and anxious. Others are more resistant and are better at

manage stress. This is explained by a combination of subtle differences

in heredity, creation, education and personal survival strategies.

All of this points to a simple truth: the brain exhibits plasticity

incredible. This means that we can all train our brains to

become more optimistic.

Is the optimist's brain innate or acquired?

You probably know someone who is an incurable optimist. These

people never complain about problems. Your positive attitude never gives way

the worst moments. In addition, they have a fantastic ability to instill

optimism in the surroundings. How do they do this? They were born with a chip

optimistic embedded in the brain? Or is it the result of many years of coaching

and positive psychology?

Studies, like those at King’s College, London, reveal observations

interesting about it. A positive attitude in people is explained by

25% of genetic factors. In other words, these people had their

your parents' optimism. In all others, optimism depends on choices

personal, attitudes and determination.

Dr. Leah Weiss, Stanford professor and mindfulness specialist at

work, believes that there are people optimistic by nature. But a great

proportion of people is optimistic as a result of decisions made.

When faced with a problem, they choose what action to take

and how to deal with the situation to bring about change.

How does the optimist's brain work? How does it stand out?

Before trying to explain how the optimist's brain works, there are a few things

that you should have clear to you. First, optimism is not the same

what happiness. Instead, optimism uses all strategies and skills

that can improve a person's quality of life. Optimism includes a

wealth of skills and inclinations that contribute to happiness.

• The positive attitude that characterizes the brain of the optimist is based on a

special ability. It is the ability to deal with stressful events in life


• Optimists do not try to escape the dark aspects and challenges of

life. On the contrary, they accept them and try to make the most of the situation.

• The optimistic way of looking at things makes it easier to deal with feelings of

depression. Optimistic people are less likely to suffer anxiety and

depression. They are also better at building strong relationships and


The optimist's brain and the connection to the left hemisphere

Dr. Richard Davidson of the Affective Neuroscience Laboratory at the University

of Wisconsin, in Madison. He conducted a series of studies to demonstrate

an interesting and revealing phenomenon. He described the results of the study

in one of your articles:

“When people are anxious, angry or frustrated, it's the amygdala and the

right side of the prefrontal shell that are the most activated areas of the brain.

On the contrary, it is seen in positive, enthusiastic and energetic people that it is the

left side of the prefrontal bark that has the most intense activity. ”

The study shows that positive emotions activate the left hemisphere more

than the right. Richard Davidson notes: “After several studies on the

link between emotions and lobe activity in the head, we found that

many people are optimistic. Those who tend to be unhappy and suffer

depression or anxiety has more activity in the right hemisphere. "

Let's end with a proposal Daniel Goleman about something he

often emphasizes in his books and articles. He believes that everyone can

develop a more flexible, positive and open attitude.

It is about improving the control of stress and emotions so you can

use them to your advantage. Always focus and focus on the horizon.
