EPISODE 182 Psychological “glimmers” are small, fleeting, micro-moments of positivity and positive experiences that can significantly impact your emotional well-being. Glimmers, as introduced by social worker Deb Dana, are specific examples of micro-moments that elicit feelings of happiness, hope, and safety. Glimmers foster a sense of calm, connection, empathy, happiness and joy and effectively counter daily fear and stress in your own life. Why are glimmers so important? According to other psychologists, you actually have an inherent bias towards negativity in your own life.  That is, you have propensity to learn from and use negative emotions, negative experiences and negative information far more than positive emotions, positive experiences and positive information in your own life. Glimmers help you overcome the negative bias and bring a sense of connection and regulation to your nervous system to move you into a new emotional state which allows you to temporarily feel calm and content. How you do generate glimmers in your own life? Experiencing, acknowledging and embracing glimmers creates a positive impact in your own life.
